I have a Birthday!

This is just a quick post. I'm still waiting for dad to get the pictures from Sunday's Bark Park out of the camera. I have good news and couldn't wait to share it. Mom and Dad gave me a birthday!!! They didn't know when my real birthday was and couldn't remember when I came to be with them so they decided to make my birthday the same day as their anniversary (At least they won't forget it). October 27th is now my birthday. Mom and dad have been together 19 years and married 17 years (as of the 27th). Since October 27th falls on a Friday this year, mom says we will celebrate the whole weekend (me doing a happy dance).

I did go to the bark park on Sunday and met a 10 month old black lady poodle named Scout. We had a great time. She was about my size so by the time she gets to be Isabella's age, she will be tall. She had a sibling that looked like Ivey. We went early enough that there was no Baxter (thank dog).

Mom has ordered me a bandana from Butchy & Snickers mom. She's sure it will be here by my birthday.

While at the bark park, dad decided our little digital camera doesn't cycle quick enough (not sure what that means). After reading what Cairo and Isabella said about cameras and going thru the reviews, he ordered a Cannon Powershot.

Well- mom & dad are off to Pizza and a Movie and I'm out to guard.

Woo Hoo! A new camera to take pictures of you- that's too kewl! We got our new camera- a Canon Powershot. Linda is still learning how to use it. It is a lot more complicated than her old one and she needs to learn how to use all the settings and gizmos. She is gizmo challenged-hee hee!
Big Wags,

hi charlie, nice to meet you! don't let them cheat you out of your birthdays. i demand one every few months (we do age in "dog years, you know).

can't wait to see the new shots of you. i'm a sucker for mixes, especially herding dog mixes!

Isabella- my mom is gizmo challenged also. She tried taking pictures of me no too long ago with the slow camera and she didn't do so good. She tends to get her fingers in the way.

Wally- this birthday thing is new to me. I only asked my mom for one when everyone else who blogged was telling about their birthdays. Until then, I was never aware there was such a thing.

Hey C-K-C,

Yipee ! You have a barkday - how cool ! It is three days before my mum's barkday, so it is a good time of the year to have it :-)

Also, just a wee reminder to get us a pic for the DWB calender as soon as you can - we still have a bit of time before the deadline - but SHD (stupid human dad) would like to start working on it shortly.

Thanks heaps !

Happy Birthday Charlie!! We love parties. At our blog you'll see us in party hats and enjoying puppie ice cream. Mommy didn't know they made such a thing.. it is goooooddd!!

Salchicha & Lilly- I didn't know about it until Cairo (or Cubby) mentioned Frosty Paws. My mom found it at our local Wally World. She keeps a box in the freezer. She wishes that they would get the peanut butter kind. I just love peanut butter.

Have a happy birthday Charlie! Make sure your people give you something really good to eat!

My birthday is coming up too. I'm already formulating a plan!

Glad you enjoy the puppie ice cream. We don't even have to do any tricks to get the ice cream! Think we are spoiled? ha.. well, sometimes we have to do a little trick.

It is sure nice to have a birthday day. Take pictures please so we can all see your birthday party.

Jay had a great rebirth/ birthday!! They raised about $1,400 I think. Not sure if that is US Dollars or not. See his posts for Sept 27 and 30. They donated the $ to animal shelters.
