Happy Barkday, Snickers!

Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, Patches! I barked this to our personal secretary before Penny, Poppy and I boarded Aire-Ruby for the trip to Iowa. Today, we are celebrating the 6th barkday of our bootiful Wire Fox Terrier friend, Snickers. We heard there will be swimming in the ponds and lots of eatables! I sure hope those Koi fishies know how to hide from us doggies and kitties!
This is Poppy saying HBO words to Mom when she told her she had to wear a bathing suit. Poppy says she would rather go nekkid!
I couldn't believe what Mom was telling us! None of us have ever worn clothes except Penny with her storm shirt! We didn't have time to go buy any, so we are going nekkid except for our collars.

This was MY reaction to the thought of getting dressed up! Last week, our mom looked at some rain coats for us, at PetCo, but they were way too 'spensive. Especially since she would have to buy THREE of them. If one of us wears one, we ALL have to wear one!
We can't wait to see all of our fur friends at Snickers' pawty! Happy barkday, Snickers!

In other news, the bank still doesn't have Mom and Dad's checking account straightened out yet. There haven't been anymore fraudulent charges, but that could be because the account is EMPTY! We hope they figure it out soon and we sure hope they catch the guilty party! We want to bite them really hard! To make matters even worse, Mom lost her job on Wednesday. WE like that because it means she can spend more time with US, but she keeps mumbling something about having bills to pay. She really hated that job, so in a way, it was a good thing, but now she will have to find another one. We are hoping she can find one someplace where they help doggies and kitties! If she can't be home with us, at least she could be doing something good for OTHER animals!
Well everybuddy, that's all the news for today. We'll see you all at Snickers' pawty!
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)

That's awful that your mom lost her job but good that she'll be spending time at home with you guys until she has to hit the pavement to find another one!

Maggie and Mitch

Oh no, we're so sorry to hear about your Mama's job. We hope she finds one that she really likes. It was ok to come nekkid to the pawty. Everyone sure is having fun swimming in the ponds, especially since it is so hot & muggy here today. The koi are hiding in their cave at the bottom of the pond, hehehe. Be sure to eat up the goodies!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Hi, Patches!
Happy Birthday to Snickers!
The party is going to be great!
I will have my paws crossed for your Mom to find a job that she likes!
Yes, HBO words to those who stole your money! I hope the bank does something soon!
Kisses and hugs

Tell your Mommy that means she's one day closer to finding the PERFECT job for her. My Mommy stayed too long in a job that she hated and once she left, she's been so much happier (and healthier!). We have faith that there's a better opportunity out there just waiting to find your Mom!

So you're going skinny-dipping at Snickers' party, huh? Asta found me some board shorts, but I'm not sure where my tail goes!

See you by the diving board!

Your pal,

Hi, guys, so sorry to hear about your mom's job. We hope she finds something she likes. We think work should be just as fun as home--especially if you guys can't be there, too!

Keeping paws crossed that the bank works things out asap!

Party on!


Pedro said...

I hope your mom finds a job she really loves. That's so important. AND I hope they catch the robber who got into you mom & dad's checking account. That is very scary!


Charlie Daniels said...

I hope you Mom gets another job really soon ... 'cause then you can get some treats! ;-)

Have fun at the party!



George the Pup said...

Oh I hope your Mom finds a great new job soon, it's always fun to have more Mom time, but you Dales need your treats too ;-)

Have fun at the Pawty!

Rambo said...

Sorry to hear about your Mom's job, but at least you can play with her while she's home. And maybe you can get some extra treats.
Have fun at the party.

Cripes, we can't believe the bank hasn't sorted out your folks account. That's so slack. They must be worried.
We're also really sorry to hear about your pinkys job.

Hugs and tail wags
