Big Thank You's and a little give-away

Morning to all my lovely bloggy chums.....yes it's your gorgeous bundle of golden deliciousness one year older maybe but still cutting a dash with the ladies and I've got my hang dog face on today and no wonder...will explain in a mo but first I need to say......
big big thank you's to all you lovely girls who sent me birthday wishes and a huge cuddle for my lovely friend Anesha for the card and pressies that I showed you last week...check them out HERE.....you really are the nicest girls and I would love to meet you and smother you all with doggy kisses....Mum is shaking her head.....OK I admit that I do go a bit overboard when it comes to the welcoming visitors bit but I'm just a big friendly kind of a guy.
And to celebrate my birthday Mum said I could do a little give-away
Stampin Up Papers & Cardstock
Good Neighbors stamp set
Twill Tape
Flowers and bling

And if you want this parcel of goodies to be winging it's way to you at the end of this week....just leave me some bloggy love and I will choose a winner next Friday.
And why is my nose out of joint....for starters I have had enough of this weather....far too hot for someone like me who doesn't have a summer wardrobe...I am stuck with the big furry coat all year round...am reduced to sleeping under the conifers in the garden in the heat of the day and the indignity of having the birds who live there pooping all over me......it's a disgrace.
As for this tennis malarkey...my sofa has now got a reserved sign on it...there has been absolutely no activity in the crafty department....the crafty lady has been permanently seated watching the ball going backwards and forwards and crikey what's all this leaping in the air and shouting "YES" all the time....scaring me witless....my poor Dad hasn't fared any better he's been forced to take up residence in the front room with nothing to watch but the World Cup....think it's time us boys came out in protest.    And the final straw....Mum took off on Friday to visit my lovely chums Jacqui and Anne at Simply Create....."you can't come Buddy...dogs are not allowed " and then she comes home and tells Dad about the gorgeous dog who popped into the shop with his owner....well is it any wonder I have a face like a wet weekend.
But things are looking up...Dad tells me that the tennis finishes today so I'll get my sofa back ..the sun has fallen out of the sky....yippee it's raining so I won't have to run the gauntlet of those pesky birds.....just need to work on the visit to Simply Create and I'll be back to being a pampered pooch once again.
Happy 4th of July to all my American buddies
Big Hugs & Snuggles

Morning Buddy and many happy returns. Glad things are looking up for you but not sure what you can do about the visits to Simply Create as it such a fantastic shop so you won;t be able to stop her going but might be able to work on being able to tag along...lol
Hope to see you again soon

Anesha said...

Hi Buddy, you are very welcome and I would love to meet you one day and I don't mind doggy kisses at all! It has not been nice for 'people' with fur coats on these last few weeks. I now she's a cat but, Skipper is finding this weather just as bad.:)
Those bad birds pooping on you, you can't let that happen. I am sure that you mum will take you to Simply Create on her next visit now!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Lots of hugs Anesha :)

Love Gwendolyn

Sarah A said...

Hope your birthday was as special as you are! Poor you suffering in this heat, Casper and Tinkerbelle have been the same and can be found either sprawled out on the slate kitchen floor or under my bed LOL! You should get a cat friend to chase those birds away for you or mither Kath to get a purpose built shelter under the tree so those birds don't mess your gorgeous coat up!

Great candy, you have such good choice in the crafting department!

Take care and good luck with getting the sofa back ;-) pity you can't benefit from ear plugs to drown out that shouting and cheering hehe I can hear her from here!!

Unfading Spring said...

Hi Buddy, Happy Birthday, hope you had a good one, so glad the weather is a little cooler for you today, and never mind only one more day of tennis and then back to normal. I don't like the tennis much either, hope Mum remembers to feed you. because when I was a kid I never got fed while the tennis was on.

Maybe Mum is worried you might get too excited at the craft shop, maybe when you are a bit older and calmer.

Big Hugs Carol xx

Helen said...

Awwww...you are having a bad time of it Buddy!
And as for not allowing you to go to the craft shop...I'm sure they'd get masses of extra customers if they advertised a 'special guest appearance' by one of blogland's brightest stars! lol
Nevermind...you should get your sofa back tomorrow ;0)

Kathy Rogers said...

Happy Birthday Buddy, do0n;t worry I'm with you about the tennis and football, never mind it wil all be over soon and you'll be able to reclaim you rightful spot.

ginny c said...

Sorry to hear about tennis & world cup it will be normal service soon. Well the trip to craft shop perhaps their is another reason for you going , how does mum explain the stash she brings home to dad.It buy two get 1 free, discontinue lines going cheap, can you see were i am coming from

Denise said...

Buddy my golden furry friend, you can lavish me with wet doggy kisses any day of the week. Wish I lived closer to you cos we could meet up and then you and my Meg could have a chase about session. The birds in our garden are fighting among themselves today. Those young sparrows can be viscious little devils when they want to be.
Big hugs and tickles behind the ears - Denise & Meg

Suzanne said...

aaaawww - poor Buddy. I would love to meet you and get lots of lovey kisses, lol. Happy Birthday, gorgeous one. Leave your mum in peace for a bit longer, like your dad says - it's nearly finished now. I know how you feel - between football and tennis I am driven demented. Not long now though, lol
Hugs

Denise said...

Just had to pop back Buddy and let you know you aren't the only lovely gorgeous K9 in the dog house. 11 week old Tinks (long haired Jack Russel) next door is in big big and bigger trouble. While her mum nipped upstairs she got into the pile of dirty laundry awaiting the washing machine and has strewn it all over the garden. Talk about airing your dirty washing in public eh.

MrsK said...

Happy Birthday Kath!

Keep ya chin up lass it will get better

Take care

-Agnes- said...

Congrats to Buddy and thanks for the chance of candy... it's hard to get up to anything in this heat I know! What you want is a cool tiled floor in a room with the curtains drawn all day long! If you prefer the outdoors, how about a pillowcase full of ice cubes in a bín bag underneath a blanket. Coolpacks would do fine if you are not tempted to chew them up. Hope this helps.

nnalorac said...

Well Buddy, my advice is get too the settee 1st this afternoon, I'm sure mum will share, enjoy. nnalorac.x

scrappyjacky said...

Have you thought about sabotaging the TV,Buddy!!!

Fluffles said...

Very Happy Birthday Buddy, sorry your birthday week hasn't been the best. Maybe with all the ball sports on TV tho you could get one as a present to lift your spirits...better than that, we could arrange to meet at Simply Create & I'll bring you one! Jx

Kat said...

Glad you had a lovely birthday on Wednesday Buddy and got some cards and goodies. At the moment my Lab is lying on "her" chair in the conservatory. Her Dad isn't in to football and I'm not into any sports so she's quite happy and just waiting for her Sunday walk with Dad.

She probably understands how you feel in the warm weather as she has a very thick coat too. A lady told me the other day that she was taking her Goldie to be trimmed but the trimmer would also be able to remove a lot of hair (sounds painful). I forget what it's called but apparently it's recommended for Retrievers and Labs.

Rain seems to have stopped now and the sun's come out so Maddy might get a dry walk after all.

Not long now till you get your sofa back.

Hugs Kat xx

Jessica said...

Happy Birthday Buddy! I'm glad you'll have your sofa back! But mum does love tennis!

Jacqui said...

Buddy I don't want to stir it but I have to say your Mum has been asked to bring you to see Anne and I, you are very welcome and if you let me know you're coming then I'll have lots of treats for you and guess what I even have a we sofa that you can have pride of place on, so maybe next time....and who knows maybe Tilly, Emmy and Alfie might pop into see you and then theres always Benson and Suggs!!!

Alex said...

Arrrrh Buddy, you should have your sofa back by now, am sure Mum will spoil you rotten now that Wimbledon has finished lol - wonderful goodies you managed to snag away as well, very impressed ;) xx

Lorraine said...

Hi Buddy, at least the tennis is all over now! Our poor dog Molly is black so she is dying in this heat aswell. Get a visit to Simply Create soon because when they meet you they will never let you leave.

Allison said...

Happy Birthday to you Buddy

mckinkle said...

Wishing you Buddy a whole heap of doggy gorgeous pressies!

Its great that the temperature is cooling so you dont get into any trouble chasing those pesky birds after messing up your coat!

I think you'd have been rolling your eyes at the monster who is Murphy who came to visit me yesterday; he just didn't stop for one moment!!

Mandy said...

Hi buddy just stopping by to congratulate you on your Birthday.
I think someone of your status should never have to give up one comfort& their should also be an over head fan at least.Perhaps your weekly allouance from allowing people to pet you shld be spent on amobile air con unit.
Enjoy your Birthday celebrations
hugs & kisses plus a box of bonios

Your dog is gorgeous. Oh, and I love your blog too :0) jamie

Rosie said...

Buddy I am sorry this is a late Birthday wish, but both Sasha and DeeDee send sloppy kisses to you too. They both understand how you have been feeling in this heat, and also feel you indignation at having the birds pooping over your back. I know they would both love to meet you, and Sasha totally understands the need to make visitors 'very' welcome when they come to the house. Rosie, Sasha and DeeDee xxx

Esther said...

Hi Buddy,
My small one who loves to see your face says it is cooler here today so hopes it is the same for you and you can stop baking a little. !

Thanks for the chance to win!

butlersabroad said...

Hi Buddy
Oh boy, I do sympathize with you having to wear a fur coat and put up with the naughty little birdies! On the plus side though you don't have to wear sun cream or worry about getting sunburnt do you? I'm doing a very passable impression of a lobster today as I've just got back from a camping trip and it was between 30C and 35C every day and not a cloud in the sky. Hope you had a fabby birthday.

Hugs and kisses
Brenda xxx
