It's my birthday today!!!! And I am TWO!!!!!

Mom and Dad say it seems like only yesterday I joined the pack, but it's true - two years old!!!

Guess I didn't do too badly - look at this loot.

I used to have one of these wubbas - hmmmmm, the Momster says some pup chewed it to smithereens. Now who could that have been? She adds that this happened pre-Lightning. And that purple pup looks like something I might have to hide from the little dickens - he seems to be quite the chewer too. Oops, I didn't say that.

We have always loved the Thanksgiving Dinner formula from Merrick. I actually got to have this new Homecoming Holiday one last night - I give it four paws up.

Now what have we here? Sure smells good.

Salmon - yummers - anything fishy is a big hit here.

And now for the special goodies. One, two, three, four of them, two reindeer and two gingerbread doghouses. ALL for me!!! What's that, Mom? Oh, OK, one for each of us.

As you can see, I am wasting no time getting to know my new wubba.

OK, I have been waiting long enough, Mom. Let's have one of those yummy treats NOW.
