Some Birthday Fun

Hello Friends.

First let me thank each of you for all the great birthday wishes.  Thank You Thank You!  It was a great day and I know being 13 will be great as well.  So, let me show you some of the fun.  I apologize for maybe putting up to many photos.  It was hard to choose.

First thank you for so many comments on how young I act and look.  I do feel young, but as you can see I have more than a few white furs that have appeared.

My friend Shasta (she is the church secretary's dog) gave me a gift. 

I knew it was something yummy, beef and bacon sticks.

I got some cool cards.  One from Mayor Madi and from Schatzie & Gracie.  Look at those pups carrying a stick to me.

My very good friends Buddy, Lilly and Lydia sent me all these very cool drool books!

Get out your pen and paper, you are going to want to write down these titles to add to you library.  Ready?  We have Doggies, The Poky Little Puppy, Harry the Dirty Dog, Love that Dog, Pantaloon, Hey Al, Officer Buckle and Gloria, Doggone Dogs, Walter the Farting Dog, and Dog Loves Books.

WOW!  I don't know where to start.  I am going to have so much fun reading to my MOM and even more fun reading to little peeps.  

MOM got me this crazy squeaky monkey.

He is super soft and so much fun.

MOM also got me this puzzle.  She got me this because all the other "puzzle" toy/games she has gotten me I have mastered in no time.  The sales clerk told MOM this one is very challenging and should take quite a while for me to figure it out.  We'll see about that.

OK I see the treats goes in there, the lids closes, MOM turns the thing and the treats disappear.  Now I have to figure out how to get them out.

Lets see.

Ha Ha Got It!

I even took off the flaps that cover the hidey holes.  That took all of 70 seconds.  So MOM gorilla glued the hidey flap things down so I could not take it off.

No problem.  Lift the flap, spin the thing, get the treat.   Piece of cake.  This time it took 39 seconds.

Another method is this:  Pick up the puzzle.

Flip it on it's side.  Treats fall out.

Eat the treat.  New world record less than 20 seconds.  I am the Puzzle King.

Next MOM and I watched my favorite move, Best in Show.  My very good pal EASY gave me this movie, as you read a few day ago, along with tons of other fun birthday stuff.  
That sure is a beautiful actress on the screen.  The one in the middle.  Woof Woof.  

I ended my birthday by reading to MOM one of those great books.

Then Billy read me to sleep.

What a wonderful birthday.  Of course the bestest gift ever is that my MOM took some time off of work so she could spend a little more time with me on my birthday.  I was so surprised when she picked me up from BERT'S and it was still daylight outside.  I am the most blessed pup ever!  Thanks again everybody for making this day extra special.


  1. Woof! Woof! For 13 you don't really have so much white stuffs. Happy Birthday! Your monkey stuffie is on your head. For sure you'll be celebrating till the weekend. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  4. Well a Happy Birthday to my good buddy. I was pretty excited for you when your Michelle got to come home early from work just to spend the rest of the day with you. She really loves you and we know you love her soooo much. I sure hope that Sirus is as lucky as you and I are.
    Thanks for spending part of your BD with us.

  5. Goose, I am so glad you had such a wonderful day. You deserve it cause you are like the greatest pal ever for everyone! I love your puzzle toy. Mommy is always trying those on me. I like to do the pick it up and turn it over method. It is the quickest way to the treats. Best in Show, are you kidding me. That is one of Mommies favorite movies of all time. Did you see the shih tzus, Agnes and Tyronne??? I didn't like the people that had Beatrice that looks like you. Mommy said it is just acting, but I say they don't deserve pets. I can't wait to see you at the Circus. Stop by for foodables.

    Loveys Sasha

  6. What wonderful presents...especially the extra time with mom. I was laughing my head off over you and the "challenging" puzzle. Nice try mom!

  8. Happy Birthday, Goose! We love you, buddy.

  18. What a great day, Goose! I love your monkey and a book about "Walter, the farting dog" - that's really cool! If you ask me, Weimaraners are tooooooo smart for puzzles and intelligence toys ;o) btw: Beatrice is a hottie, huh? I would like to be her "buzzy-bee" - even if I had to wear a bee costume ;o)

  19. 13? Wow! You do look young! Happy belated birthday!


  20. Happy Belated Birthday, Goose! We're sorry we missed your big day, Mom's been at the hospital with grandpa the past few days and we're behind in reading. Best In Show is our favorite movie, too, and Mom takes Walter the Farting Dog with her to read at school when the other teacher in the room is gone. I'm glad your big day was extra special!


  21. WOW GOOSE... you scored some MAJOR Swag fur your birfday... You are the PUZZLE KING fur SURE.

    Harry the Dirty Dog was one of Sarge's Mom's FAVORITE books when she was little.

  22. wow, what a birthday... better than any of mine have been. and you are one fast pup with that puzzle.... maybe a world record.... i loved watching you rip into it...

  23. Goose, you make us smile. Seeing you in your birthday glory was the best. Surrounded by (most importantly) your MOM, your new monkey (he's the size of your head), your books (oh how much fun will they be to explore), your puzzle (seeing you flip it over was hysterical), and your treats and cards from others, reminds us just how awesome it is to see beautiful. It's right there, all around you and in you and oozing from you. Yes, you and your MOM see and create so much beautiful!

  24. What a wonderful birthday you had Goose! You gotted so many pawsome gifts too. We love the puzzle. Muffin and I took bets on how long it would take you to figure it out. We both lost. You're way to smart. Very nice selection of books, we got to get us some of those.

    You just had the bestest day with your Mom. We wish you many more healthy and happy years.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  25. Goose you sure had a great birthday! I can't believe you mastered that puzzle so fast! I love your monkey stuffie too. Keep being you Goose.


  26. You had a great birthday!!! Mom has been wondering about those puzzles and how they work...she is thinking about getting us one also...hey we will see you at the circus!

  27. Wow, what a totally pawsome day! Only right for a pawsome guy like yourself. :) And you're totally the Puzzle King!

    Did you know that Cinderella got that EXACT SAME monkey for her birthday?! It's so much fun. You're going to LOVE it.

  28. What a great birthday, Goose! Especially getting to spend extra time with your mom :)

    When my mom was little The Pokey Little Puppy was one of her favorite books; she wanted me to tell you thank you very much for a happy memory.

    Happy Birthday, Goose!!!

  29. Happy day after your 13thd b-day Goose.
    mom and i laughed our heads off at you flipping the treat puzzle upside down!!!
    we love to read here too. Maybe you can read some of your books to that precious little girl who loves to watch your videos...I bet she would LOL some more.
    Madi your BFFF

  30. Oh, wow, Goose! All of that sounds so wonderful -- especially the part about your MOM taking off work early to be with YOU!!!! That is the BEST!!!
    Happy, happy birthday!

  31. WOWSA!! Goose, you sure gots lots of pressie there!! I just LOVES your Monkey!! Oh, that sure is the winner!!
    Ya know, Ma gots me those puzzle toys, and I thinks they must test them on some pretty 'dim' doggies, because every doggie I ever heard of figures them out in like seconds!! The guy in the pet store told Ma that it will keep me busy for hours tryin' to figure it out...58 seconds. Ma wasn't happy. Hours...pfft!
    Anyhu, sure looks like you had a great day Goose. Gives your Moms some extra kisses from ME!

  32. Now those are some great presents! Enjoy!


  33. You are so smart, Goose! I have a feeling that Joey and Scout would just walk away from one of your puzzles.

  34. Looks like you had a super birthday Goose!! Went to the pet store the other day and guess what??? I met another dog just like YOU, his name was Max and he was 10 yrs old and weighed...are you sitting down... 130lbs. He was a big boy(not at all fat) and his MOM said he was just the best boy. I told them about you--it gave them a big smile. See you spread joy and beauty everywhere. :)

  35. What a happy birthday you had, Goose. Just shows you how wonderful it is to have good friends and a super mom! Those books look terrific--I love books too and presents and treats! Happy Birthday!Lady Caroline Lamb

  38. Aw, Goose I'm so happy that you had such an awesome birthday bash!! :-D Your books, cards, and treats were so cool (and delicious)! Pft, white fur doesn't say anything...look at me...I'd be a grandpa pup if that were true! ;-) I'm glad that your Mom was able to take some time and celebrate the big 1 - 3 with you!!!
