Official Birthday

Here in the UK the Queen has an "official birthday". This is such a good idea that I have one too.

Well - actually it's because I don't actually KNOW when my birthday is cos I was dumped as a puppy. So now it's the second bank holiday monday in May. That's tomorrow by the way.

So to celebrate this, here are some very early pics of me, plus 7 things of Tealeafnesses. (as tagged by Bella )

When I first arrived I had to sleep in an indoor kennel, this is the same one that General Jackson sleeps in now.

I also had very long legs which took some growing into:

I had (and still do have) a predilection for shredding paper. It was a bad news day anyway.

And I liked doing the dishes:

Bootsie tried to eat me once:

I have big paws:

I am a sentinel dog (I've been teaching KuBrin too)

I am six tomorrow - but I can still do cute:

I don't have a birthday either.

And I certainly don't have seven pix of me doing different things.

Mistress thinks you are a handsome dog.

Aaw...... Tealeaf! my foster brother! You should have told me that it was your birthday and I would have sent you a present!

Ernest Tagged me for eight things about me. I tag you all! ( I make that about 35? 40? 45? facts? Sorry I am not good at the multiplication thing)

Happy Birthday! Don't let the parents cement themselves to the path!

Happy birthday Tealeaf!

You don't look a day over two.

You are lucky, we only get one bank holiday in May. has been stuck transiting through London on many bank holidays and then bummed because her favorite cheese shop is closed.

smooches to you!

I had no idea it was your burpday. I do hope you get loads of good things to eat and none of your siblings or friends eat you.

I will beg for something extra good to eat in your honor. And perhaps a gin and tonic.

Dear Tealeaf,

I would like it known that I have not forgotten your birthday, it's just the humans have been a bit busy with this and that and would not go to the post office with my parcel.

Instead I made one of the humamns send an email to explain, I hope it arrived safely. I will be asking the humans (again) to visit the post office this week. I'd go myself but dogs are not allowed in...

I hope you had a lovely birthday.

PS. I saw that you'd rolled in fox poo, it reminded me of a poem I once sent you :-)
