Pet Pride - Birthday Boys, Guests of Honour, and Some Great News!

JD - Hi everyone - it's us, the birthday boys, he he he! This is quite a long post because there are a lot of photos in it - we hope you all enjoy!

Birthday posing - don't we look all grown up and handsome now that we're one year old?! He he he!

Max - Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes so far! We're having a great time - we know we're being thoroughly spoiled but as they say- 'every dog must have his day' - so we don't mind if we do, he he he!

JD - We'd like to say a huge thank you to Bozo for featuring us on his Pet Pride meme today - we were so excited when he mailed us and asked us if we'd like to pen a few words!

Max - Yup! Pet Pride is our favourite meme, so if you haven't already joined in the fun why don't you swing on by there and check it out - after you've finished reading our post of course, he he he!

JD - Yesterday we had a small barkday pawty and invited some of our pals over. It was great fun - here are a few photos of the event...

There we were, playing in the garden and when we came back into the house loads of our pals were here - it was so exciting!

JD - "This is me, Pippa and Archie in the conservatory. Can you see my 'birthday boy' badge that I'm wearing on my collar?! He he he!"

Harry enjoyed his piece of birthday cake so much that he took it out into the garden to make sure no one else got even one crumb!

Max - "Do you need any help finishing that piece of cake Millie? I'm more than happy to step in if you need me to - that's what friends are for you know....!"

Max shows off a bit sitting on the table so he can look down over Archie and Millie!

Archie 'stole the show' really - he is so photogenic, and doesn't he know it, he he he!!

Pippa liked the look of of one of Max and JD's stuffies!

Archie poses with a football - he's always smiling!

Archie strikes a pose again - every side is his good side!

Max - Although it wasn't officially our birthday yesterday we nevertheless opened the parcel that the gorgeous Sasha had sent us....

JD - ....yes, yes - we openly admit it, we were simply showing off in front of our friends that we had received a parcel from such a beautiful pup all the way from Australia. They were everso impressed!

JD poses with a letter that Sasha sent explaining what she had sent us....

This is Rat - he is wonderfully squidgy and chewy. Erm - you can see that we have already nearly chewed off his front two teeth, he he he!

This is Flea - he squeaks! He is SO much fun....

Max - "Um, s'cuse me female human, but I think you'll find that Sasha sent Flea to US, so can you stop with the flashy box thing and let me HAVE him please? Ta everso.....!"

JD - "S'mine!" Max - "I think you'll find s'mine!" JD - "But I want him!" Max - "Well, so do I!"

JD and Max - "We LOVE Flea!"

JD - Sasha is so generous! She also sent us some great 'boy bling' in the form of some wonderful, glittery initials for us to hang off our collars!

JD shows off his 'boy bling' - looking good!

Max - We LOVE them! When we went out on our evening walk we really did STRUT! We felt so cool and handsome!

Max - "Sasha explained in her letter that Rat makes a very comfortable pillow - she's not wrong!"

JD and Max settle down for a recuperative snooze with Rat!

JD - Sasha also sent some kangaroo treats and kangaroo burger bites - wowee! They're very healthy food and we can't wait to try them out.

Max - Thanks SO much for all your great pressies Sasha - we absolutely LOVE them - and you.... *blush!*

JD - Yes Sasha - you are simply wonderful......*blush!*

Max - We slept for most of yesterday afternoon after all the excitement of our party, it was a great day!

JD - So, today is our actual birthday - we can hardly believe it, it's all gone by so quickly!

Max - We started the day by opening the pressie that our lovely treat lady 'M' had brought round for us....

"For US? Why thank you, we don't mind if we do!"

Max - Rip! Tear! "Nearly there, just a bit more chomping and I'll have unwrapped it...."

JD - "Mmmmm, treats! Oooh, they're yummy!"

JD and Max really enjoyed ripping all the paper off their pressies - and then they brought Flea over to enjoy all the mess and fun!

Max is torn - Flea or paper? Paper or Flea? Decisions, decisions.....!

JD - We got two lots of treats from 'M' - and some doggie shampoo....

Max - Eeeek!

JD - It's especially mild shampoo Max, without any soap or irritants, as 'M' knows I suffer a bit from itchy skin. Isn't that kind?

Max - 'M' is the best!!

JD - We then went for a lovely walk at the park and met up with loads of our pals, including everyone who had been at our party the day before!

Max - Everypup said they had enjoyed the party - we were very pleased! When we got back home we were allowed to open ANOTHER pressie that we had been given by another generous friend.

JD - This is Lily - a very beautiful GSD friend of ours. She's an excellent swimmer and wrestler - and she's very pretty! Um - I look a bit goofy in this photo, but that's the effect a pretty girl has on me you see.....

Lily's presence makes JD act a bit goofy!

JD and Max - "Ooh, oooh - for us?! It smells so GOOD....mmmm!"

Max - "What can you see JD?" JD - "So many good things Max!" Max - "Well, hurry up and choose us something already.....!"

JD and Max - "Darn humans with their flashy box - hurry up and take the picture so we can eat our goodies!"

JD - "Chomp! Chomp! Delicious!" Max - "Snarfle! Chew! This tastes divine!"

Max - Lily got us a huge bag of treats - there were chews and biscuits and almost every treat that a doggie could possibly imagine - wow! We love it - thanks Lily!

JD - Yes, thanks Lily - you are wonderful!

Max - We still have some pressies to open from our humans - we'll post some photos of what they got us a bit later on in the week! They're waiting to give us our birthday stuff a bit later on as they don't want us to get over excited - and we've been having a very exciting few days!

JD - We sure have! But before we leave we'd just like to say, much as we have LOVED all our pressies and all our spoiling we nevertheless think the BEST thing that has happened over our birthday weekend is getting the news that our handsome bloggie pal, Mr Darcy, who had a major operation on his back last week, is slowly getting better.

Max - It'll be a long haul for him still, but he's heading in the right direction. Keep on going buddy - we're all rooting for you and we're sending you big hugs and snuggles!

JD - Hope you're all having a great weekend everyone and thanks again for all your kind birthday wishes!

Join in the fun at Pet Pride....

Hello babes!!!
Congratulations on you real birthday!! I loved the pictures and would really like to be there to snuggle you two!

I can't believe you had such a great party with such beautiful guests!!! It looks like it was really fun!

Mom visited Mr. Darcy's blog and left some love and support words there - she can't see dogs suffering, she cries and all, she's really sensitive. She's praying for his recovery now. =)

But, hey, always great to come and see you guys!

Much love from Brazil!

Oh HAPPY BIRTHDAY, boys!!!! That looked like the most awesome party! :-) And I personally don't think Archie is the most photogenic...I think YOU are! :-)

What wonderful presents! I know first-hand how exciting it is to receive presents from overseas (hee! hee!) - and that Flea is such an original stuffie! Ha! Ha!

I can't believe you boys are all grown up and 1yr old now! Seems like only yesterday that I met you - when you were still little pups! :-)
