Happy Birthday Buddy

Morning folks....it's The Furry Boy's Birthday today... I can hardly believe my beautiful bundle of golden deliciousness is 5 years old....crikey where does the time go.  He is just the sweetest boy although prone to occasional hooligan moments as you all know but I wouldn't change him for the world...he is a real character and I love him to bits. Because I work from home he's my 24/7 cubbyhole companion..sleeps at my feet and is the best hot water bottle on winter nights...snuggles up to me when I'm sad...doesn't do grumpy or sulky...believe me he's had some right old telling offs but within seconds he's back to being my best friend again...us humans could learn a thing or two from our canine friends...don't you think.
Mind you when he first arrived at Chez Kath...he was in real danger of being sent back to whence he came...after 14 years of having a Goldie who was a true gentleman with impeccable manners and so obedient...we were totally unprepared for this hyper bundle of naughty snuggliness who ate all the flowers in the garden...dug up all the plants and loved to show off his party trick of digging huge craters in the grass at every opportunity.  But we've survived the Terrible Two's..The Tiresome Three's..The Frazzled Fours and do you know...I think he's finally grown up and become sensible...now there's a statement I may live to regret...we've now got a mutual understanding called COMPROMISE...I forgive his little occasional misdemeanours and he puts up with the crafty tantrums and messy cubbyhole...it's all about give and take.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL BOY
here's to many more fun years together....

I love the expression on this pup's face....just like The Furry Boy when he's knows he's been naughty.
I had a small problem with the lettering...I have oodles of Foam Thickers bought yonks ago from QVC in a bumper kit but not enough in brown to spell out the Furry Boy's name...so to use up the colours that I am unlikely to use...out came the PM's...
and a little tip...they don't dry as quickly as they do on card....be patient unlike me or you will end up leaving your fingerprints on the lettering...
and how lucky is the Furry Boy to receive this gorgeous card  from his bestest buddy Anesha...
Well it's time for our morning stroll and then home for coffee...cake and opening parcels.

  9. Happy 5th Birthday Buddy . . . my handsome choccy lab Leo has just turned 2 last month and like your mum, we are havingthe terrible two's (back to chewing and taking things he shouldn't). We had a beautiful yellow lab for 15years who was an angel but sadly due to treatment for controlling a cancer sadly was blind for the last 5 years of her life. Different temperaments I guess. Like you Kath, I wouldn't swap Leo for the world.

    Have a wonderful day - hugs n stuff x

  45. Happy Birthday Buddy, hope you had a lovely day with lots of treats.

    My boys are still at the hooligan stage & probably will be for the rest of their lives!!

    They like to eat plants and dig holes in the grass too. I sometimes find one of them up to his ears (nose first) in a hole in the grass.

    Hugs from Kat, Blue and Max xxx
