Well well friends, this week was my birthday. If you’re feeling bad about not sending me packages of peanut-butter-and-liver cupcakes or baskets of kittens, don’t. You have another chance. My actual birthday (adopt-a-versary) is November 11, but my observed birthday is usually on Thanksgiving! So just send me the kittens then.
This year for my birthday I got a super special Fetching Tag just like my brother’s. Boy oh boy was I excited when it came in the mail! I will show it to you next week, but for now I will just tell you this: it has my name and phone number and a special motto all about me. I love it!
In preparation, why don’t we just take a look at the gifts I’ve gotten in previous years, shall we?
My very first year of having a real birthday, you see, I got a brand new mama, dad, and a home. That was a BIG year! And to top it off, I also got a kitten! The people still insist that Illy did not belong to me officially. I’ll let you be the judge, based on the photographic evidences:
The next year, mom and dad and my aunt Sara the painter got me a painting. I just loved climbing up on the back of the sofa and gazing deeply and intensely into its corners:
The third year, they let me help bake, and gave me whole bunches of frosting to lick clear off the cold metal thingies. That was a sweet year!
And the following year, since I loved the bakings so much, mama let me lick a little icing off the edge of the table after we went for a big birthday swim. Wahoo!
The year after that, mama and dad let me sleep in the bed in a hotel. A simple pleasure, sure, but such a rare one. You can see how much I loved it!
Year six, I got what is — no exaggeration — THE BEST TOY EVER. It’s basically a squeaky squirrel on a fishing pole. You can see how much joy it brings me here:
Then two years ago, mama and dad got me . . . my first foster sister. Um, thanks mom and dad. No offense, but that was the lamest birthday ever!
Luckily they made up for it last year by giving me my most beautiful Paco Collar. Aren’t I the handsomest?
Oh, and I also got a nice tall margarita for that same birthday. Double score!
The Bug and I are off to Galveston next week to visit our grandparents for
my birthday Thanksgiving, and I bet there are even more surprises in store there.
Happy Chick’s birthday to everybody!
Oh Dog! Happy Gotcha Day! That’s what we call ’em at my house. woo woo woo!!!
Chick, happy birhtday! You are a funny dog and you are a handsome dog and you are a sweet dog! I agree with you that, seeing the evidence, Lily belongs to you. Isn’t one kitten enough? I wish you a great time with your brother and parents in Galveston and tons of surprises!
I can’t get over how handsome you are, Chick! And so much personality. Happy birthday! Here’s to many, many more. Oh, and I’m pretty sure my Hamlet needs one of those squirrel on a pole toys.
Happy, happy Birthday. And visiting the grandparents. Be careful, you might get spoiled some more.
You definitely need to get a kitten again. (Well, I’m a little confused. Do you still have kitty? I just don’t remember kitty before…)
Cats are cats and dogs are dogs and a dog’s gotta have a kitty, too.
Happy birthday Sir Chix-a-Lot! Sending you big sloppy smooches and some serious butt scratches just where you like it 🙂
Ugh I am so jealous that Chick is good with cats! Is it all cats, or just that one? 18 months later and Beau still chases Zora.
PS: Happy Birthday, Chick!
Happy birthday Chick!
