Happy New Year! and Happy Eleventh Barkday to Me!!!!!!!!

 Yep, it's true. I am eleven years old today (in human terms). Born January 1, 2002.

Mom tells me that I am still the adorable puppy she fell in love with eleven years ago 
but that I seem to like snoozing a lot more than I did before 

and that I sometimes seem a bit, just a bit, grumpy. Dogdad tells me that he knows if I ask him to come see him, I will walk towards him and then turn in a circle and walk away. (So what else is new?)

Last night just before midnight, I wrote to a few of my friends and guess what...they all said they would be coming to visit around noon -- with the Boston Symphony Orchestra! I am sooooo excited! What a cool way to start off the new year!

Over the holidays, Just Harry and I had to spend a week at our favorite camp while the folks went on their annual St. Louis trek. They did take our flat selves, however, so it was kinda as though we were there. They got to see Gussie and Teka. 

And they got to spend a few nights on the Christmas tree.


Of course the folks had to visit the Cardinals store! 

The star of their Christmas, however, was none other than an adorable 7-month young lady who captivated everybody with her sparkly blue eyes, engaging smile, and sweet temperament -- our niece, Miss Olivia.   


We hope one day our real selves will meet her. 

Until then, Happy Happy New Year everybody!!!! We're hoping that our mom will have made a new year's resolution to help us blog a bit more so that we can stay in touch with all of you who mean so much to us!!!
So sayeth I, Jake, on this first day of 2013! 

(JH says Happy New Year too!)

Happy Barkday Jake! You are not so old...I will be ten in February. I think we are at a great age for wirey fellas. Barely Broken in, not worn out.

We enjoyed meeting your Dog Mom and Dog Dad, and sniffing and sniffing and sniffing. WE could smell you of course, but they also smelled like Miss Olivia...pawticularly your Dog Dad. We think you should go with them next time they visit her...babies are great sources of smells and foodables.

We hope you have a wonderful day. See ya in about an hour.

Happy Birthday Jake :) So we are of the same age. I am glad to see that your mom has returned to blogging. Mercury has asked me to tell you to tell her that she feels happier when she writes for me...despite being busy.

And...Happy New Year to Mom, Dad, and JH...and of course to little Miss Olivia :)

Licks n wags,
