My 13th Birthday

Today is my birthday!  I'm 13 today!
Mom says that sometimes it's so hard to believe that I'm 13. Some days I'm stiff and slow. I don't do stairs anymore and my walkies are twice a day but only for a really short distance but I'm still fiesty when I want to be and I can still chase Mitch through the house when I want to and I can still give him a pretty good smack with my paw when I want to play.    She also says that I'm just so darn sweet. awwwwwwwww - of course I am!
Mom always makes me a cake for my birthday! She's never forgotten! This year it's watermelon and blueberries and whipped cream!  yummmmmm
 OMG, my hat has slipped over my eye!  Help me, mom, before Mitch eats my portion too!
 Hey, Fiona.  The birthday hat is so well worth it! Go for it!

Dad says there will be other birthday celebration days coming my way - like ICE CREAM!  whooooohooooo -  I can't wait!
My friend, Putter just recently moved from Massachusetts all the way across the country to Seattle, Washington!  She has been superbusy getting settled in her new home with her twinsy boys.  Yesterday, the florist delivered a flower cake to me and mom.  Doesn't it look pretty enough to eat?
Thank you so very much, Putter!  You and your family are always so very thoughtful!  Mom and I just love our special floral birthday cake!

 Most of you know by now that mom and I share the same birthday.  We think it's pretty darn special!  Maybe we an share an ice cream cone together, mom!

Happy birthday to the birthday girls!

Happy Birthday to you AND mom! I am not a kid anymore either, but I think short strolls are the best. And no matter how old you get, Mitch is always going to respect you and that is what is important. Giant smoochies coming your way!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag ihr Beiden!
I hope you had a wonderful birthday and may all your wishes come true!

I had such fun reading all the news I have been missing all this time. Just a day after I made my last entry in my blog, I was sick again. We are not sure, but we strongly believe its my food that caused me to fall so ill.

Lots of love!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh Maggie, you (and your mom) so deserve to be spoiled big time on your special day!! Yes, we think it's ultra special that you and your mom share the same birthday... makes it doubly special right?

Mojo said...

Oops, we're late! A very happy belated birthday to the both of you. We haven't blogged in years but still keep up with yours - and Mojo still has a soft spot for Mitch.

She has a little brother now, a Dale boy called Digger who's just over 4 months. She totally understands how much forbearance and responsibility Maggie has had to show. The girls should swap a few exasperated eye-rolls over and ice-cram or two.

big hugs
Mojo, Digger and their mum

Bella and Ollie said...

Happy birthday to you and your Mom.
You don't look a day older and that cake looks really delicious.
Lots of love from all of us.

Thank-you Sue, I loved my wedding dress too!! I bought it at a second hand store. It had been someone else's Wedding dress before me. I hope their marriage his been as good as ours!!!

Happy Birthday to your Mom, too! She is just as special and terrific as you are, Maggie! (But I don't know if she is just as old. Shish... We'll keep that part quiet. Hehe...)

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess Sorry to hear that your friend Putter and her family moved so far away.

Koobuss said...


Sorry I got your age wrong. I know the last thing a girl wants is for somebody to add three years to her age unnecessarily. Yikes!!! How can I be so dumb? (No answer, please.)

I apologize agaIn. My mom must have had a senior moment. Everything else we said is true. You ARE terrific!!

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses (Again)

Happy belated birthday to both of you wonderful girls.

So sorry our wishes are late, but they are still heartfelt and genuine.

We want you to know ... Moma promised us we are gonna read EVERY blogpost we've missed (it has been much much too long). We probably won't leave a pawprint, but we will catch up on what's been going on in your VeryImportantLives. You are, we hope you know, some of our very best friends.

One more time: Happy Happy Birthday. 13 and 31.

Jake and Fergi, Moma and NinaGirl
