A Note From The J-Man: It's My Birthday!

Maggie and Joey at 12 weeks old.  Those are halos not rust stains.

Hi All....'Joey' here, one of your Long and Short of it All hosts.  Today is MY special day, and it seems like it's been all about my new little brother 'Rowdy' lately - I hear people say "oh, look at the cute little puppy, love the wire hair!" and  "awwww, he's so sweet - look at that face.!"  And did you know that my Dad feeds him more food than he does me?  Did you know THAT?  Well today it's all about me.  I'm eleven years old today.  Dad is feeding me lots of extra treats and I'm enjoying playing with my cousins at my grandma's house.  One thing though - I sure do miss my littermate sister 'Maggie' who passed away a few months ago, and would have turned eleven today along with me.  
So, I'm sharing this photo of me and Maggie when we were pups and all naked in the bathtub.  I was about 2 seconds shy of jumping out of the tub in this shot.  See Rowdy - I love you little brother, but we were awful cute too - Dad's little Angels as a matter of fact.

Hope you get lots of green tripe treats for your birthday (and you're allowed to not have to share them with your little brother - unless you want to)!!

Happy Birthday big boy! And while we are wishing happy, happy, let me wish you too a happy Christmas!

We will say a prayer for Maggie tomorrow night while in church (and for all others that have passed before us).

Hope Santa Paw's is good to you all!

Hugs,

We know exactly what you are experiencing, Joey. Ever since our mommy brought our little brother Logan home this past summer, he seems to get all the attention from everyone. Just like Rowdy, Logan always has to carry a toy or a bully stick with him whenever we go outside. People think he's cute, but we think he is a pest. We have to admit to loving him though.....

Happy and healthy birthday!

Is there anything cuter than a dachshund puppy? I think not!

Happy Birthday Joey. You're a sweet boy. Enjoy your special treats!

Alicia said...

Super happy birthday Joey!! We love your (and sweet Maggie's) puppy picture, and you look just as adorable now that you're 11 years old. Hope your day was great!

Happy Birthday Joey! Hope you had an awesome day.

We are glad to hear from you. Oscar especially knows your "pain," as it used to be all about him until Hans came along. :)

We want to send Christmas barks and wigglebutts to you and your family - both two- and four-legged. Have a very Blessed Christmas and a biscuit-filled 2012!
