Birthday Boy's Unofficial 12th Birthday

As Bobby is a rescue dog I have no idea when his real birthday is but today he has been with me four years and he was eight at that time. Some time ago Bobby found out that Buddy Roo was treated to cheese topped beefburger for his sixth birthday and has been looking forward to his share ever since. In fact he got two small beefburgers, one cheese topped, some Jerky and his favourite - a Tripe Stick.

I don't think he was too amused with the musical candle. The tune was a bit high pitched for his delicate hearing! Once the burgers had been chopped up and the candle removed then his Birthday Breakfast didn't last very long.

Eating is a very exhausting activity so the next item on the agenda was a long snooze in a Sunny spot out of the breeze.

OK so I'm getting dafter by the minute in my old age but Bobby enjoyed it!

  1. John, you and I both. I make chicken and rice cakes for Molly, dressed with scrambled egg. I've only got to get a muffin ring out and she's on watch, funny how their memory is so selective. Wish him a very happy birthday from us.

  2. John just watched Birthday the movie. A delicate eater isn't he, brought a tear to my eye.

  3. Hello Adrian. I bet you buy her Christmas presents as well. I do.

    I think Bobby was being cautious as that is the first time he has had food higher than floor lever so initially he wasn't sure it was OK. Mind you, most times he will take food from my hand just as gently though he does forget his manners sometimes.

  4. John, that was excellent. A Happy Birthday to Bobby, from me and Jim.
    I was thinking what a delicate eater too. A beautiful dog.

  8. Happy Birthday, Bobby! How kind and thoughtful to offer favorite treats for such a lovely companion! Wait until your feathered friends (and hedgehogs) hear that birthday treats are now on the menu at the Birdy Bistro ;)

  9. Happy Birthday Bobby! what a delicate eater he is, definitely no Labrador in the mix there! I usually make Buddy a fish cake for his birthday. BTW, your new designed website takes an age to download!

  10. Thank you Keith. Most of the time he is a very considerate, gentle dog.

  11. Thank you Paul. The sighthounds aren't known as 60mph couch potatoes for nothing ;) They definitely conserve energy for when it is needed.

  14. Thank you Glo. Most of those things he only gets every now and then as a reward so he was spoilt rotten yesterday. As for the rest of the menagerie - I am pleased to say I don't know when their birthdays are!

  15. Thank you Matron. No. Thoroughbred sighthound and usually very gentle and refined.

    Not sure what the problem might be with the download speed, unless you hit a one off bad time. (Flickr and Youtube have their bad moments) This morning I tried with Firefox: 7 seconds, Opera: 7 seconds and I.E. 15 seconds - all were the latest available versions. Sometimes I think the clock can take a while to connect and that slows everything on the right hand side down.

  16. Bobby looked like he really enjoyed his birthday and perfect weather for it too. My grandson who loves dogs, is also 12 and was looking over my shoulder while I was reading your post says, 'will he have a party next year when he becomes a teenager?'

  17. Hello Helen. He did enjoy all his favourite snacks as he doesn't get them very often. Of course with 7 human years to 1 dog year he will be in his 90s next year but I doubt that will put him off enjoying his birthday ;)

  18. Thank you Roy - he enjoyed it anyway.
