No more waiting!!!

The waiting is over!!!  Let the PARTY begin! 
(Sorry for the delay in posting, but umm, there was a bit of a problem overnight and I needed to get some extra zzzzzz's this morning.  You'll hear the story later in the post and you can make your own judgment.

It's MY birthday!!!!  

I have been waiting ALL year for today:) But no more waiting, time to celebrate.

Today I am FOUR!!! 

So far here is what the Momster has given me.

A new bear (stuffed with a squeaker and lots of knots), a new pretty blue wubba (all of my old ones are in tatters), some tasty treats, AND some strips of those delicious chicken tenders that Phantom got for his birthday too.

Trader Joe's really knows how to make a tasty treat.  Turkey and cranberry - yummers.

I have decided to share my goodies with Phantom and Lightning.  Of course, Lightning is up front like always, and poor Phantom - Mom caught him mid-slide on the slippery floors.

And here I thought the waiting was over - SHE is making us wait even longer for those treats.

Now I know some of you thought maybe we were getting a new puppy.  But the Momster says that is not in the plan book.  And then she added "especially after the last two nights".  What ever could she be talking about?  And when I asked her where were the homemade peanut butter and pumpkin cookies she promised me, she said I had some measuring up to do before THAT happens.  So what's up with THAT????

I know, I know - AND this time I didn't do anything wrong.  It was all Ciara.  At the stroke of midnight for the past two nights, she has raised quite the ruckus at the kitchen gate trying to get outside - lots of scratching and whining.  At first Mom thought she really needed a bathroom break and came down to let her out.  Of course, that also meant that we all went out for potty time.  BUT then the birthday girl would not come inside.  It took Mom a half hour to get her to come back inside Monday night.  An hour later, she started again.  The silly Momster hadn't learned her lesson and came down again to let her out.  Duh, hello - even I knew Ciara was playing her.  So last night we had a repeat performance.  This time Mom had to put on her shoes and coat and chase her around the yard to get her in.  To say the least, neither Mom nor Dad were very happy with her.  Sooooooooo, when she started again only 15 minutes later, guess what happened????  The birthday girl got locked in her crate.  Oh boy, was she an unhappy camper - she ranted and raved for over an hour.  She kept me awake, and poor Phantom went into the laundry room to get away from the ruckus where he slept on a cold tile floor - at least that's where Mom found him when she got up this morning.  

When Dad got up a few hours later, Ciara was sound asleep in a sunpuddle - he went right over to her and woke her up - he was still upset with her.

Ciara here again.  Now who are you going to believe - this sweet and wise pretty girl or the mischievous mutt next to me????  I am totally innocent.

Phantom here - Let ME tell you - they are both nuts - just give me another of those chicken strips - that will really make me feel great.

Woos - Ciara, the Birthday Girl, and her two brothers, Phantom and Lightning

Happy Birthday Ciara. We hope you have a most wonderful day. Fenris likes to run around outside at night too. It doesn't get as cold here and Fenny has a dog house so sometimes instead of chasing him the Mom just let's him stay out, you better be careful are your people might do that to you. Fenny has to wait on Mommy to get up then, which we are sure is no fun!

Phantom we hopes you got lots of chicken strips since you have to put up with the nuts.

Happy Birthday Ciara! When we get let out in the wee hours of the night we get put on leash. Even though our backyard is fenced in it is very large (about an acre). When we are on leash we know we just have to do our business and then it is back in the house we go.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Ciara! You were just trying to make today arrive sooner, right? :) Well, it's here, so there' no more need to make a ruckus at night (unless you want to get locked up in the crate again)!

Have a wonderful day filled with treats treats and MORE treats!

Sue said...

Happy Birthday Ciara. Mom guessed wrong. She thought you were getting a new puppy to train.

When we wake Mom up at night she puts us on a leash and there's no fooling around. We go out and get enough time to do whatever, then back to bed. Samba used to get up just to go star gazing but the rest of us don't get to try that.

Happy Birthday Ciara! You are so pretty. You know what if we didn't have alcatraz that we have to stay in we would do the very same thing at nightime, and in fact when me and my angel brudder sammy came to live with mom we did it quite frequently!!

Molly The Wally said...

OMD Molly does that during fox season which is about now and Pip used to get peed off like Phantom. Pips legs were also doing that and we bought some cheap carpet mats for her. Again special hugs and gentle pets for your sweet old love.
Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly
Happy Birthday to naughty Clara.

BeadedTail said...

Happy 4th Birthday Ciara! We kinda find it funny that you wanted to stay outside in the middle of the night but our mommy said "ay yi yi!". Guess she can sympathize with your mom and dad. Whatever.

Collie222 said...

I wonder if Ciara heard something the other two couldn't? Maybe distant coyotes?

Anyway, Happy Birthday pretty girl!

Taffy said...

OMD!! I can't believe it has been 4 years! Happy Birthday, Beautiful! You tell your mom you were protecting her from, uh, what was it you were barking at outside? Your poor mom having to brave the cold in the middle of the night. Ciara, you know she doesn't have a built in coat like you do. You should be nice to her tonight!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Hey....Hap-Pee Birfday, Purrrty Girl! Mom just didn't understand...You just wanted to go out and PAWTY! After all, you only have a birfday once a year, right?

Happy Birthday Ciara!! Don't they know by now if you are barking there must be a good reason??? We've had coons in our backyard the last few nights!

Hoping there is no repeat performance!

Happy Birthday, Ciara! Too bad the momster doesn't understand your need, as the female of the pack, to protect your family from cats or squirrels or whatever animal is broaching your perimeter!!

Happy Birthday pretty Ciara!
We don't know whom to believe, but we do know it must have been COLD for the Mom to run around the yard in the middle of the night!

Better luck tonight, furriends.

Too much birthday excitemnt maybe? Happy birthday Ciara!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Happy Barkday Ciara! You sure know how to get attention...but I have to admit to doing the same thing sometimes in the summer except I go out the dog door and then sit at the farthest back of the yard and howl until dad comes out in his bathrobe to play chase.

Hope your special day was filled with some pampering, snow fun, and lots of love. We know you had yummy treats. The White Dog Army

Happy happy barkday, Ciara! I admit, I thought you were going to be having a new brother or sister, but barkdays are grreat things to be waiting for too!

Marg said...

Happy Birthday Ciara. Sounds like you were so lucky to get any presents. You should really come in when the Mom calls you.But that Mom loves you, so you got your treats, Hope you have a great day.

Ah now I know it! Happy Birthday beautiful Chiara, have a wonderful day with a lot of treats and love.

FiveSibesMom said...

"Happy Birthday to woo, Happy Birthday to woo, Happy Birthday dear Ciara, Happy Birthday to wooooo-000000-oooo!" (as sung by Harley, Gibson, Wolf, Chloe & Bandit!) We are going to share your special day over on our FiveSibes Facebook page and hope you'll pop over to see! You don't need FB to see it as we are an open public page :-)

Funny, Gibson and Harley have not wanted to come back in either after they are let out...this morning it was 1:30 AM and Gib spread out in the snow and did not want to come in and Harley pranced about the yard with no desire to come in...maybe it's the cooler Sibe weather calling them?

Hugs to the beautiful Birthday girl...and to her two beautiful sidekicks, too! xo

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Beautiful Ciara! Vidock would like to send special neighs and say that he is so glad he isn't the only naughty one around!!!

Angel Clifford used to do that every once in a while. Mom and Dad never figured out what caused it!!

Anyway...........Happy Birthday Ciara!!

Happy Birthday Ciara, I wonder if there was a critter in the yard-that is what I would have thought. You all best sleep through the night tonight.

KB Bear said...

Happy Birthday Ciara!!!! Four!!!! I can't believe it. I remember when you were a tiny puppy.

I'm so glad that you shared your treats, especially with Phantom. He's a great big brother, isn't he?

I'm wondering - do you think you could have coyotes yipping outside? The only time our pups act like Ciara has recently is when the coyotes are howling outside our house in the middle of the night. Just a thought...

Happy Birthday, Ciara!

Phantom I would be happy to share my treats with you as I know you were one of my Angel brother's best friends


Cocoa and Melon said...

Very sorry we are late, Ciara! We were waiting to see what you were waiting for!
Melon says Oh Ciara, what were you doing? Play nice for your Momster and Dad, okay?
But I know you were probably just hungry. I understand. Food is all-important and should be given all the time.
And oh Phantom, boy do we love you. More treats for you.
Wheeks, Cocoa

Happy Happy 4th Birthday Ciara!
I really hope that you had a wonderful day and that you enjoyed playing with your new toys and all those yummy treats, you are so good to share with your Brothers!
I sleep in bed with my Mum, I used to sleep in my bed in the kitchen but I kept scratching the door to go to the "toilet" but then wouldnt come back in, I used to try and sneak past Mum and run upstairs until Mum gave up and let me sleep with her! I sleep snuggled between Mum and Dad and I love it! I just think that you just need some attention, it must be tough being the only girl!
Love and Licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxxx
