Counting Down to...TEN

OK, so this is all about me, Jake, again. But it's for -- I think --- a REALLY good reason: tomorrow, January 1, 2012, I will be TEN YEARS OLD.

Just Harry and I -- and the Flat Guys -- have lots to tell you about how we all have spent the last two weeks of December. The Flat Guys went to St. Louis for a quick trip with the folks. And then we got to go to Orlando to spend Christmas with our sister and her new husband.

We'll tell you about all that later (if our Mom remembers we have a blog). But for now I've been pondering what it will be like to be in the double digits. Mom still calls me her puppy. Is that OK for a ten-year old? Will I have to be more serious?? Will I have to yield more territory to my brother who seems to be getting more pushy???Maybe not. After all, my grandpaw celebrated his 100th birthday this past September, and he still has a great sense of humor and enjoys life and, thank doG, gets to do pretty much what he wants.

So I think I'll just continue being me, and enjoying life! What do you say, everybody?

Let's stop to send our love to everyone who's not feeling so well, pause to remember our good friends who said good bye this year, and open the new year with fresh hopes for -- this is for you Archie -- peace in the world. And if it's not too much to ask, an end to the mean-spiritedness that seems to have permeated daily lives. (OK, and maybe lots of treats and regular tummy rubs!)

Happy New Year and love to you all! Gail says world peace may be some way off so long as I'm around. What can she mean by that?
She also says she hopes that I will have grown up a bit by the time I'm ten???
Toodle pip!

Happy New Year AND Happy Birthday tomorrow to you, Jake. Phantom says 10 is great, he isn't so sure yet about 13, but he says you do get lots more pampering and treats the older you get. Hope 2012 is a good one for you, Harry, and family.

Happy New Year from all of us at The OP Pack!

Yes, Essex remembers her pawsome cyber-paw space date. Sigh.

We think our post confused you. 31 DEC is Essex's Gotcha Day, AKA Barkaversarry. 13 October is her Bark Day.

Hope you have a great time and maybe see you in the chat room.

Essex & Sherman

Oh dear. We are almost a month late in washing you a happy tenth birthday, Jake. If you'll forgive us , we'll try to make it up to you someday. We're hoping it was grand and that you are settling into the double digit years with ease. Or at least with grandiosity. You deserve it. And you certainly deserve lots of extra treats and tummy rubs. Tell your mom we said so.

Happy New Year. happy Year of the Water Dragon. Happy Valentines Day. And, while we're at it, Happy St Patricks Day. (Do ya know what we're implying?)

Hello there, dear Barkalotboyz and a very happy Birthday to you, Jake. We are so glad you have found our blog! We haven't been updating it as much as we would have liked because both our Mom and our Dad got quite ill some time ago but they are now back on their two (four?) feet so hopefully our Mom will be taking dictation again soon and we cann tell you more about our life here in New Zealand.
Smoochies, Josh and Jessie

Jakie boy, you're looking mighty handsome for being a double digit boy. I'm glad to hear you had a great howliday and a happy new year.

Your tribute to our bestest friend Maggie was boootiful. I'm sure it brought comfort to Sue to know that her little girl was so loved worldwide.

Stay healthy, we love you guys, just wanted you to know that :-)

Love nibbles to you and JH, and hugs to your mom and dogdad.

Miss Sunshade
