Happy Birthday to my awesome husband, Russ…
*whispering* He is forty!
and to our equally awesome cat, Max the Cat…
*YELLING* HAPPY SWEET SIXTEEN MAX!
Happy Birthday Sal! Happy Birthday Rhonda! Happy Birthday A.C.!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRISCO CAT!!
Anyone else? February 4? Best day of the whole year?

Last year on my birthday, I posted fun links to songs and veterinary posts I love. I think that is an excellent tradition. And “Second Annual” always sounds more legitimate than “First Annual.” So…
Second Annual Riley and James February 4 is Awesome Day
Happy Birthday Friends! May you be spoiled to just this side of rotten as I always am by my wonderful family, and may this be the best birthday in your whole life so far.
And everyone else…my birthday is awesome because of you. To say THANK YOU…here are some fun links…
This video is still hilarious!
My favorite “birthday” song! The cartoon version is gone. *sniff* Puppets scare me, except Muppets, which, of course, are awesome. I will ONLY watch other puppets if they are associated with TMBG and singing a TMBG song.
*3/21/11 update – I just found the “official” TMBG video and put that in the link. Trying to be careful about that sort of thing. I would be embarrassed if TMBG showed up at my door and arrested me for linking to an unauthorized video…but then I would get to meet them.
(Tell Sal HAPPY BIRTHDAY!)
…and finally, a super cute picture of a piglet with a heart spot…Oh yeah! I’ve got more where that came from! I will post the rest of my favorites for Valentine’s Day!
I realize this entire post is bold, centered and in difficult-to-read colors. Imagine that you took me out for a birthday dinner to one of those restaurants with crayons in glasses – Now move my water glass away from my left elbow and whisper to the other adults, “Let her continue! She’s being quiet and she seems content!”
(Thanks! I am.)
Joy the Puppy, Adoption Day! January 30, 2008
(This is just after she finished playing at the construction site with Russ and decided he was the most awesome, fun person she had ever known in all her many weeks)
Joy the Puppy, All Grown Up!
Russ: Aren’t dogs fully mature at two years of age?
Me: Yes! Didn’t happen at midnight, here’s hoping for noon!
For Joy’s birthday, we got her an ice cube. Honestly, I have NEVER seen her happier than when she got her gift. Today we will celebrate Grown Up Joy the Puppy. Tomorrow, I will post more about Baby Joy the Puppy, because that was a special time too.
Happy Birthday Joy! You are one of the two best Black Lab-Somethings I have ever known. I do hope you stop eating socks. And paper. And stuffed animals. And food off the counter. But Joy…I hope you never really grow up.
