Wooing Wonderful Wishes on Wednesday


Today is my 4th birthday. Mom says it is hard to believe I have been here for so many years already.

Here I am in the puppy pen at my first home when I was about 10 weeks old. I was the only pup in my litter. I was mostly white back then.

I came to my furever home when I was 16 weeks old - yes, I had a little problem with my ears for a while.

Mom and I had some time alone inside - we put the puppypants pest outside with Phantom for a while. He will keep her inline. It gave me a chance to check out my new birthday presents.

Look at all this great stuff. Three new stuffies. Some of my favorite cod and salmon treats. And look - one, two, three of those udder thingies that Honey and Mango have. OK, Mom, I understand, one for me and two to share with Phantom and Ciara.

Norwood, what do you think of these froggies? Wait until you hear the cool sounds they make in my video.

Checking out my new green furiends.

Yes, Mom. I know how to count and I DO have two of these. But you know Phantom won't want one, so why can't I have two?

All my new presents make me so happy - thanks to my family. Mom says I will have ice cream tonight. Here is a new one she found that I am going to get to taste.

I saw one of the little grandbipeds having some today - it sure looks good.

And now I will leave you with this video.

Woos, Thunder the Birthday Boy

Happy Birhtday to woo Thunder. I just turned 4 too, I like that age. Dad says only 1 more year until we become good dogs, like we are not good dogs already.

Enjoy your toys, udders, trats and ice cream, I thought we were spoiled.

Happy happy barkday, Thunder! Looks like you got great pressies! I have one of those croaking froggies too, they are great fun. If you go find it in the middle of the night, bring it back to bed & give it a good squeeze, it'll really freak your humans out! BOL. Oh, and I think you should sign up for singing lessons - you are quite talented!!
