Lurchery Birthdays

Saturday (that was yesterday) was my birthday. I was 12.

Tell me it's not so? I am still a young chap really...

And what's more, I share my birthday with KuBrin too, and he's only 5, which makes me feel doubly old...

Anyway - a double lurchery birthday calls for celebration, so the humans took me and QB down to the local shops to visit the butchers.

While we were there we met a little girly JRT, she was only 5 months old, I was completely cool with her, I like my women a little longer in the legs, but QB was terrified.

We went to the butchers, and while the Dogfather and QB and me stood outside for our adoring public to greet us, AlphaB went in to buy BONES.

When we got home Dad helped me out with a bit of marrowbone, it was yummy

Then he helped the other birthday boy

And just so as they did not feel left out the others got some too:

Tealeaf did not want any help with his marrowbone. He thinks he's tough.

Megan was actually allowed to have hers inside, which is a cheek cos I get shouted at if I take one indoors, the humans said it was because it was so hot and she is an old biddy.

The Dogfather tried to help her out with the marrowbone bit, but cos she is a silly old bint she thought he was stealing her bone and would not let him have it.

Then she worked out what was happening and was happy to have the marrow instead of the bone.

Maybe I don't mind birthdays after all, can I have another one tomorrow?

As far as I'm concerned birthdays last all week, so you can enjoy another whole week of marrowbones and snuffles!

Smooches to you and QB!

Happy barkday to Boots and Kubrin !!!
Are you really 12 human years old ?? Wow you don't look a day over 8 - you must be well cared for.
How nice of Dogfather to help with the marrow hmmm yum yum I lurve marrow and my little mouth & tongue is small enough to get to it myself - there are some advantages to being the smallest in the pack ;)

Happy BURPDAY! I am with Ernest--birthdays are AT LEAST a week long. After all, your peeps really need to acknowledge the fine service you did for them in rescuing them.

Marrowbones and snuffles for ALL!
