It's my Birthday! Lucky #7!!!

Okay, we had a great time on the beach, Mom, even though it was windy and there was hardly anyone else there but us. But hey! I've got a great idea! Let's go to my favorite store and get me a BIRTHDAY PRESENT!!!

Yes, on Friday I will be seven years old. And I knew just the place to go...

Why yes, I'd love a cookie, thank you! Whaddya mean I've "gotta work for it" Mom? Okay, I'll shake hands but hurry it up - I'm starving!

Ooooh....a cookie AND some back scritchies. I'm a blur of excitement. I may need to howl for this nice gal and really turn up the cuteness meter... (Check out my windshield wiper tail action.)

YUMMY! Look at all the delicious homemade dog cookies. What shall I choose for my special birthday cookie?

Well, the Palmetto is on the state flag of South Carolina...and I do love to leave pee-mails on them...

Hey look at all these cute clocks! Boy, you'd always know what time to go for a walk with all of these, right?

Hee hee! Take a look at this weather vane! I think he deserves a Stain Award from Joey.

Hmmm, maybe I need some new toys. I like the giant flea...that smirk reminds me of someone who also is known for her bite....

Oooh, there's so much to choose wait a minute...what are these???

Hey, that looks like Baby Stan on the package - these must be cool!

So whaddya think?
(I think I look like I need my own Seeing Eye Dog.)

I do look kinda cool, don't you think?
(NO, we did NOT buy the Doggles!)

Hey now! Look at all my pals on this game of Dog-opoly! Looks like Chef and Max and Joey and Mango and Noah and Clover!

I finally settled on a bone stuffed with peanut butter. Mom gave it to me when we got home and I took it into the living room and worked on it for three hours! I've still got my birthday cookie and a birthday balloon and cookies from this nice lady at Tail Waggers.

Look how excited I am - I'm a blur!

Jake and Fergi sent me this swell birthday card!
And Otis, Eric Square Dog's Cat-bro sent Mica this greeting card! Eric and I went for tea at the Ritz, read all about it on his bloggie.
Lacie wrote an awfully funny poem on her blog about it, too!

Oohhh! And look at this! Asta created a whole new strain of seeds that grow into PETEY tennis ball-covered bushes!!! That's the best present ever!

Tomorrow morning I'm going to a place called Red Rover for a "Spaw" treatment. I dunno. Their phone number is 671-WASH. I wonder if I'll still get to go to the beach and roll in the sand this weekend. (Mom - "We head back to NYC on Monday, then I'm off to Israel for 9 days, so I'm afraid Petey's going to have to stay clean!") There are some pretty funny names for grooming places down here - our two favorites are Groomingdales and Vanity Fur!

I'll keep you posted on my big day!!!

Hi Petey
Happy birthday! The best years are ahead of you! I'm not sure Hamish would have approved of the doggles....

Dexter said...

Happy Brithday Petey! I loved Lacie's poem (and her purple toot toot).

I have asked Miss Asta for some of those tennis ball bush seeds. I think even momma could grow those.

Watch out for the bad weather, OK?

TwoSpecialWires said...

Hehehe! Do you realize you are probably the FIRST dog (or two-legged, for all we know) that got a Barkday card EARLY? Moma is liking this "alert" system on her calendar ... so long as she forgets it's an alert for an upcoming event and not the real thing!

So. Now that the day is here, we hope you enjoy your day a LOT! It looks like it's off to a great start. Do you think any of those tennis balls will still be in bloom when you get home? That snow is really coming down!

Enjoy your day!
Jake and Fergs xxoo

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Back to New York? Oh my...I do suggest you have your mittens handy...(Lacie snips with a bit of a bite...)


We thought we could re-enact that scene from the Shining today, with Mumsie in the bathroom and all three of us playin' the dude with the ax...we so need more exercise time...OUTSIDE.

HAPPY BARKDAY, DEAR PETEY...Perhaps I should have married you...

Kisses and Kake from the terriers...

Scruff, Lac and Stan...and you can be a Holy Terrier anyday!!!

Unknown said...

It's Friday here now: Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to youououou...
Great final choice. Yum. I also loved your cards but I must say Jake, Fergi and the gang were amazing.

Unknown said...

Petey - you always go to the swankiest places!! Gosh - those dog spa names had my human in stitches! :-) And I don't know how you ever managed to to choose a present from all the things in that fantastic shop!

Happy Birthday!!

Clive said...

We're back again because we meant to say earlier how excited the NSLM was to read yesterday about the dolphins and the even bigger man in house was very happy about the golf!

Every game he had booked in Spain was 'rained off'!

take care
Clive and the NSLM
