Happy Thorsday and all kinds of things!  We’d leave someone out if we tried to name names, but just know that we know that many of you in doggy bloggy land have birthdays this week too.



Instead, we’ll note that Tuesday was Gretchen’s 4th Gotcha’ Day.  Yeah…  still snuggling after all these years.   I still call her Sis-ma, because Sissy really is the most benevolent alpha ever.  We got Sissy a puppy companion a little sooner than perhaps the humans were ready for, because Sis just wasn’t happy as an only dog.  I’m so glad we did; Gg is the perfect addition to our happy pack!


Baby DIVA and two littermates trying to get Mugsy to play 12-14-2007

Yesterday of course, was the DIVA’s 5th birthday.  I had planned to make pumpkin muffins, but the Knight snagged mini pumpkin spice cupcakes first.

I’d forgotten how little Sis was when she came to us, but she was a pushy charmer right off the bat.  Only Mugsy wasn’t so sure she needed to be a part of our pack, but he came to tolerate her… most of the time.


Sissy & Dadaw 1-08

And then today is our anniversary.  Since this is the fur-girls’ blog, it makes sense that I sing his praises as a doggy Dadaw.   Do note that the kinda’ wee Sissy is tucked in his very warm coat.  Do note that she’s sure his face is dirty, and he’s tolerating it.  Be still my heart.  What a man!!

It’s a good week in the woods.  Happy birthdays to all of our friends celebrating this week, and to all of Sissy’s littermates.   The true tri-color in the above photo is still living with their mom and her family, so we wish him an especially great day.

    […] thankful thing is easy today.  It’s our 15th wedding anniversary!  As I said over on the girls’ blog, I’m so very grateful that the Knight is such a hands-on Dadaw to our dogs.  He’s also […]

    Hey girls, today is a big day around here. Last night we had special dinners for Tessie’s birthday and this morning we all had sardines with our breakfast. We wish you could both be here to play and eat with us. Aren ‘t birthdays great?

    So many celebrations at once! Just one big party at your estate.


    P.S. I had a tussle at daycare and from the bite marks, the vet is suspecting a wee terrier. It happened a while ago, but just want to make sure that Gretchen has a plausible alibi for September 13th.
