Thirteen and a Half


Today I are thirteen and a half.  I didn't really get to do anything major to celebrates, but I did get some bacon dis morning, so I's not complainin.  Well, not bout da breakfast.


Da groomin on da udder paw?  What da woof??  Now, I don't really mind a bath, but NAIL TRIMMING?  And STRIPPING?  On my half birthday???  For years I never really had to get my nails trimmed - I just walked and wore em down and my dew claws wuz removed when I wuz a baby, so I only got nail trims when da weather wuz so bad I wasn't gettin to walk. But now I are not walkin, which means my nails ain't gettin worn down, which means nail trims.  Which I hate.  Wif a pashun.  Since I had to put up wif dat on my half birthday, I thinks I deserve a steak for dinner.  Just sayin.

Anyways, me and momma are doin ok.  She still wishes I could walk on my own, but I are happy to be movin at all.  Sometimes she gets sad becuz it are like I are a broken doll - still cute and sweet, but I just can't do what I used to.  But we really is bestest pals and I are glad she has been helpin me out so much.  And I guess I is lucky to have her as my momma, even if she does trim my nails.  No one are pawfect after all.  So dis are our song for today, it are a few years old, but hey, so are I.

  1. I had a bath today - it was a new place as Mom finally got transferred to where she and Dad had a house so we weren't away from him all week, and I didn't get my groomies by her little condo. I was so scared because it was new and they left me, but they said "we're going to get GOODIES" which they always say when they're going out to get foodables so I felt better. I had the nicest people groom me and I am so soft now and my furs is not so scratchy, so it's good. Happy 13th and a half birthday beautiful girl!

  12. Hey Whitley, Happy thirteen and a half! Surely there will be steak for dinner? I have never yet have my nails trimmed, but gosh I can sympathise with you about the stripping. Better tell your Momma to make that two steaks.

    PS Gail tells me that Texan steaks are VERY BIG and she thinks just the one would suffice.

  14. We understand why your momma worries so much. She just wants you to be young furever. BUTT that is no excuse to trim your nails on a half birfday! Did you get some ice cream?

    Keep Calm & Bark On!
