My Ninth Birthday

Today is my birthday!!! I'm nine years old! I am SOOOO excited! I can't wait to get today started!

My day started out with our walkie. Mom shortened it a bit because it's really hot out there today!

After we got home and settled for a little while, mom told me she had a surprise for me - a package from her, dad and Mitch! Oh boy! What can it be??? Tennis balls on a rope! Awesome mom! I bet I know who picked this toy out! He had himself in mind, didn't he??!! heheheheh
See that pretty bandana that I'm wearing? That's a gift from Boy and Baby. Butchy and Snickers mom made it! Isn't it just beautiful! My favorite color is purple! You can see that Mitch has already slobbered on it! I think he's jealous! Thank you so much Boy and Baby! I love my new bandana!What? There's another one in there??? hummmmmmmmm let me see................
I think Mitch is a little impatient with me!
Let me show you how it's done Maggie! You're taking to long! You're making me mental!
A catfish!!! and he crackles and squeaks! Hey, this is cool! Can I have this one??
These are just awesome gifts! Thank you so much mom, dad and Mitch! I'm sure having fun!
Have you been to BenBen's blog yet? I'm the main attraction today! Don't I feel so special!
I keep hearing Mitch and mom whispering about some cake that I have yet to see. I hope it's as yummy as this one looks!And I got an online card from Ruby too! Thank you Ruby! I love my card! My day is just starting and so far it's been GREAT!
Check out the stained glass card that Blue made me! Isn't it so cool!
I'm also an official Rockin' girl blogger thanks to Sitka and Tia!
Thank you so much! I feel so honored to be a part of this!
Mitch has been driving me nuts for a whole 24 hours now with "I've got a secret, I've got a secret!" Okay Mitch - so what's the secret?
OMG my own birthday cake. Seriously? And you and mom baked it for me yesterday and you actually kept the secret! I'm impressed!
Yummy! This is just delicious! Sorry I'm making a piggy of myself! Why is the plate there mom? I don't need it! I'll just smear this fabulous frosting all over the rug!
Hey mom - this cake tastes better now that it's been baked - much better than raw ingredients and the frosting is pretty tasty too! Why did she put plates on the floor Maggie?
That was the best cake ever Mitch! What a happy birthday I'm having! You and mom were sure sweet to make this for me. Thank you so much Mitch!

Right after my birthday cake I was feeling like I really needed to relax and chill out! Hey, it's my birthday and I'm enjoying every single moment!

Around 11AM the mailman went! I always bark when he goes so that mom will leash me up and take me for a pee break on the way to the mail box. Today was even more fun! I got 3 more birthday pressies! woooooohoooooooo This is such fun! I'm am sure loving today BIGTIME!!!!
The first pressie we opened was a card from Butchy and Snickers but it was more than just a card! They sent me a coupon for a choice of a t-shirt, sleeveless t-shirt or a bandana! OMG now I have to make a choice and everything in their store is just so wonderful! Decisions, decisions.......
Their card is just awesome too! It's hand made by their mom and it's so colorful and creative! My mom says she sure wishes she had these same computer skills that your mom has! Thank you so much Butchy and Snickers! I'll be making up my mind and writing to you soon!

The next package was from Boo! Mitch was drooling before we even got the package open! If it's one thing Mitch will learn from all of this, it's the words "Sit Mitch, it's Maggie's birthday not yours!" That's right mom!

Boo's package was FULL of treats. Boo wrote a note saying that his mom has been so busy and he couldn't send me anything special except treats! You're kidding, right Boo? Treats ARE special! Ask any doggy! Thank you soooooooooo much Boo! Mom says we're not opening them today cause we're already porked out on cake and the frosty paws are still to come!

The last package came all the way from England from my Airedale buddy Oscar! Oscar sent me the most beautiful pink collar and leash that he picked out himself! He wrote me a note that says, "I picked out this pretty collar and lead for your barkday as I thought it would make you look even more beautiful (if that's possible). I'm totally blushing here Oscar!
I absolutely LOVE the collar and lead Oscar! I've never had a pink collar before and mom keeps telling me how pretty I look in pink! Excellent choice! Oscar also sent treats! If we're not careful, Mitch and I are going to be fat!
Thank you so much Oscar! I can't wait to go for a walkie tomorrow and show off my new collar and leash!

Mom put together a collage of my cards for me. First off you have to know that mom only got TWO cards(one from Aunt Carol and one from Aunt Cathy,well and Putter's mom too, okay that's three) - the rest were for me! Oops - backing up here - yes, today is my mom's birthday too! BTW she is older than 9!
Oh yes, I almost forgot- mom got an online card from my sister Missy and from her friend Dorothy.
I got birthday cards from Putter and her mom and dad and Girl girl and Boy and Baby (along with their gorgeous purple bandana that you saw me modeling) and Faya (along with her box of toys and treats) and Butchy and Snickers (along with their coupon) and my precious notes from Oscar and Boo! Okay, so we both scored pretty good in the card department come to think of it!

I sure did hit the jackpot this birthday and I haven't even had the frosty paws yet that mom and Mitch made yesterday! It's such a hot day here and they are going to taste sooooooo good! I'll post about that tomorrow.

Thank you all so very, very much for all of my lovely cards and fabulous gifts! This is one birthday that I'll never forget!

Until next time............

Love ya lots,

The birthday girl,

Miss Maggie

Happy Birthday, Maggie! Let's see...that makes you about 29 in "dog years," right? Love the pictures! You're quite photogenic for such a young lady.

You make sure those humans keep the celebration going! Did you know that airedales, specifically, celebrate their "birthmonth?"

Cheers,
