Happy Birthday Blog Dog!

It's my birthday! It's my birthday! Oh, waggy, waggy, wag! Yippeee! Ok, Mommy just told me to sit down so I could tell her what to type for my blog entry. I love blogging! You guys all leave me the nicest comments. Mommy says I'm two today. I don't know what that means, but when Mommy said that's how many scoops of food I get, I figured that means I'm going to have to lie down and stay and pay attention closely, because Mommy doesn't let me eat when I'm bouncing around like a ping pong ball. She says that's bad manners. I know about bad manners. Caleb uses bad manners sometimes and burps and that's just funny. People have the strangest ideas about what's bad manners.

I have big plans today for my birthday. I'm going to pet Ramius today. I've been practicing that a lot. I've seen the humans pet him and he makes that funny noise like our neighbors motorcycle, so I've been trying it. I walk over to him and put my foot on him and for some reason he gets really flat against the ground. Mommy says I'm not really petting him, I'm squashing him, but I think I just need more practice. I hope to get lots of practice today. Yesterday, he actually walked over to me! I wasn't even covered in tuna fish! It was amazing. I was laying on my bed and he walked over to me and looked at me. He even kind of sniffed at me and then he walked off, but HE ACKNOWLEDGED THAT I EXIST! Oh, happy, happy day! The cat looked at me! If he would just give me a chance, I could show him that I would be a good friend to him. I've seen him lick himself a lot. Mommy says that's bathing. His type of bath looks better than my type of bath (I have to go in the rain room - yuck!) and I've tried to help him take a bath. I mean, I've got a much bigger tongue than he does, so if he would let me help with his bath, it would be over much more quickly and then I could practice petting him. He doesn't like this idea very much.

Mommy says that Caleb will be getting out of school soon. I love it when he's around. We have lots of fun, and we get really crazy! Caleb is my friend. Sometimes, when it's hot, he eats these really cold, fruit flavored things. The fun part is, he's not that tall, so if I stand right next to him, I can lick one side of it while he licks the other side. It's fun to share with your friends.

Speaking of friends, I have to tell you about the new doggy friend I have now that I'm bigger. In the room that has the rain room, there is a counter with magic bowls that have water running in them. Above this counter is a window and there is another dog in this window. He looks just like me! Also, there is a person that looks just like Mommy. I can't believe that I had never seen this other dog, but the day I found him, I spent a long time standing at the counter (just like the people do - on two legs) and barking at him. I didn't want him to think I was going to let him take my family! He barked at me too, but now we mostly wag our tails at each other - he's really good looking! I wonder when his birthday is?

I'm going to go see if I can get an ice cube from Mommy now. I also need to discuss the number of meatballs we'll be having for dinner tonight. What other numbers are there besides two?

Hope you get tons of toys, chew sticks, cookies, and meatballs ( whatever that is ).

Woof. Woof. Woof.
I'm spurred to de-lurk by this adorable post.
Happy Birthday Finn - I think you're pretty lucky to have such an obviously loving family.
Good luck with Ramius.

Nimitz says Happy Birthday to Finn! He doesn't know much about birthdays himself so he's happy to hear all about yours. Peaches would like Ramius to know that he should hold out and keep ignoring the dog. They smell funny. :-)

Happy Birthday Finn! My mommy says I'm almost two. I'll have to make sure she gives me meatballs when I'm two! You're lucky you get to play with your cat...my mommy doesn't let me do that...she says that when the cat makes those weird hissy noises and scratches my nose, it means he doesn't want to play. I don't get it...how can you not want to play?

Too too cute! Our previous golden didn't have much of a sense of smell, nor terribly accurate vision apparently because it took us days of work to convince her that the painted plywood golden retriever door stop was not actually a dog that she needed to bark at.

Happy Birthday to Finn!

Happy Birthday cute stuff.
Remember to always ask for more. She can't tell you no today.
And a good number bigger than two is always ten!

(for your mommy) P.S. Obviously I can't spell, and I didn't want to teach him bad habits, so I deleted the first one.

I missed your birthday, Finn! I was playing with non-doggy friends at a convention. But Peanut wants to tell you that more-than-two is great! Not that she gets meatballs, but tell your mommy to share some popcorn (non-buttered) and that is almost as good as meatballs! Peanut is too happy being home and in her chair to blog but she says she would love to meet you someday - she likes puppies! (And you are a GREAT BIG puppy!)

Hey, I don’t see an email address. I want to ask a question about your dog, so can you email me back?
