Happy Birthday Buddy

Morning folks...what a week...I've been meeting myself coming back but I'll be taking some time off from all the crafty stuff tomorrow...the cubbyhole crew are having a party to celebrate The Furry Boy's birthday...he doesn't keep track of the days of the week so won't be any the wiser that I'm hooting and tooting a day early.
I can hardly believe my beautiful bundle of snuggly golden deliciousness will be 6 years old....crikey where does the time go.  He is just the sweetest boy...prone to occasional hooligan moments as you all know but I wouldn't change him for the world...he's a real larger than life character with a mind of his own sometimes but I love him to bits. Because I work from home he's my 24/7 cubbyhole companion...snoozes with his head on my feet which is a tad awkward if I'm having an "on the move kind of day"...he's the bestest ever hot water bottle on cold wintry nights...knows when I'm sad...doesn't do grumpy...sulky or nasty...believe me he's had some right old telling off's...takes it on the chin and we're be back to being bestest buddies again...us humans could definitely learn a thing or two from our canine friends...don't you think and if you don't have a dog in your life then I can't even come close to describing the wonderful bond that we share.
Mind you...when he first arrived at 10 weeks old...he came very close to being sent back for a refund...after 14 years of having a Goldie who was a true gentleman with impeccable manners and so obedient...our world was turned completely upside down by this hyper bundle of naughty snuggliness who ate his Dad's socks along with 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 survived the Terrible Two's..The Tiresome Three's..The Frazzled Fours and just as he hit the 5 mark he finally began to grow 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....life's all about give and take...give him an inch and he'll take a bl***y mile.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for tomorrow...BEAUTIFUL BOY
love you loads...
here's to many more happy fun years together...
  

I'll see you all tomorrow over at Penny Black Saturday and woohoo we have lots of exciting news to share.
Hugs Kath xxx

  7. ...oh Kath you have the most perfect companion in Buddy, through the rough & the smooth he'll always be by your side...I miss my German Shepherd who died suddenly age 9, that was 5 years ago and his pictures are still everywhere...my work pattern doesn't allow for a dog now but having one in your life is good for mind body & soul...have a fabby day with the gorgeous Budster...Mel :)

  8. Happy Birthday to Buddy, hope you all had a great time.

    Your post made me smile Kath. Our vets have named one of our dogs 'Hooligan Alfie' he's coming on 4 now and still the same. We wouldn't change him for the world. I couldn't image not having 2 bouncing fur balls around. Have a great weekend. Hugs Lynne xx

  33. Happy birthday Buddy, You've grown into a very handsome boy. Have a great day and cake or a lovely big chewie too, (they taste much better than socks Buddy)... What is it about socks and retrievers, We've had 3 labs and all have had a thing about socks, shoes, slippers and feet, lol. Iloved your tribute to your golden guy Kath. He was a beautiful baby too, cute puppy pic. I have a saying hanging in my kitchen. "A home without a dog is just a house"
    and anoother saying "If your dog thinks your wonderful don't seek a second opinion" Both very apt.

  34. The term "man's best friend" is so true.....dogs love us no matter what and they can be such characters, always good for bringing a smile! Happy Birthday to your Buddy!

  35. Happy Birthday Buddy! I prefer cats to dogs but still have the bond that you refer to Kath. Will be devistated when my cat's 'time' comes - hopefully that won't be for sometime. She likes to be in my craft room when I'm 'creating'.

  40. Great card and Happy Birthday Buddy it is a great name hugs Woof Woof from little buddy here. xx

  41. Wow Kath, I can't believe Buddy's 6 now!. I'm a bit worried that you said he began to grow up a bit when he turned 5 as my 2 black hooligans aren't even 2 yet. I sometimes threaten that I'll give them away and get a Yorkshire Terrier. I don't think I could live with anything as small as that so it's an empty threat! Hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow.

    Kat, Blue and Max xx
