Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the somewhat small, yet not completely miniature purebred border collie, here to tell you that today I turned one.
That’s right, it’s my birthday.
Here I am in a characteristic birthday pose.I’m having a pretty good day; feeling extremely mature and sophisticated, because, as the guy I live with said, being one is a lot better than being zero. I get to do fun stuff like barking at ice melting in the bird bath, and things like that. So happy birthday to me.
Until next time, then.
Oh, wishing you the happiest of birthdays, dear Mani. and also much more to bark and sniff and jump and run at and chew in the coming year. To sum up, many happy investigations!
happy birthday, sweet mani!! you are the dearest puppy, and my cat, mushy farrenkopf, and i are sending our regards for an exciting, fun-filled year ahead!!
Happy Birthday dear little-but-much-bigger-than-he-used-to-be DoG. You’ve brought so much joy and fierceness to your guy and garden: May Your Birdbaths Always be Barkable.
Thanks. The ice has melted in the bird bath, though.
You made it Mani, your first birthday, Happy Birthday. I hope you got lots of new presents to love and squeakers to liberate just for the fun of it. Look forward to your birthday dinner.
Thanks; I did, and definitely am.
Psss, is your guy still wearing that dog biscuit on his head?
No, not this time.
oh Pup What a terrible time for a birthday. I sympathize as mine is 23rd. I hope you didn’t get a Christmas sweater today Good Cheer carol
It’s a great time for a birthday. Mani and the daughter’s giant share today. Mine share’s the 23rd. Let there be carrot and peanut butter cakes galore. And lots of winter germinating seed. First spouse was the 24th. We partied for days. Capricorn – Sagittarius Cusp is a karmic blessing.
Thanks; I really like the idea of carrot cake.
Thanks; I guess I’m getting a big bully stick tonight, even though I got one last night, and that’s excellent.
I guess someone has to take them. My mum has one human child 10 days before Christmas and the other 10 days after. It’s a drag isnt it?
Twice the presents, that’s what I say.
One trip around the sun is something to celebrate! The three pups I live with send you wishes for many happy returns.
Thanks. It was kind of a long trip. Much to discover, and figure out. Quite a bit to learn to ignore, too.
You look so snowy white and fluffy it’s almost as if you had a birthday bath, but cake is better! Happy Birthday!
Thanks. I’m not sure I know what a bath is. I know what a bird bath is, though.
Happiest birthday and a fun year of adventure and exploring ahead, dear Mani! What joy you’ve given in your time!
Oh thanks! I’ve had a pretty good year, I think. (I can say that now that I’m older.)
Happy Birthday! It’s been a great year and suspect next year will be as full of adventure and excitement as the last. You may disagree but one year seems to have passed awfully fast… but you’ll see that on 2.
Thanks! The guy I live with says I pass awfully fast….haven’t stopped moving since I got up this morning….maybe that’s not what you meant.
Hard to believe it’s been a year Here’s to the birthday dog!
Thanks. Being one is pretty excellent. I feel so mature.
Happy belated birthday to you, my favourite dog.
Thanks. The guy I live with has been trying to put these things on me, which he says are “Christmas antlers”, and it’s not going to happen. If I had needed antlers, I would have been born with them, that’s what I say.
Merry Christmas, Mani! It was a gift to us all when you were born last year!
Thanks; I’ll have to remind the guy I live with of that, constantly…..and not wearing antlers.
