Today is my 6th barkday!

Hello to all our furry and not so furry friends! It's me, Patches! We interrupt our regularly scheduled Wheelie Wednesday because today is my 6th barkday and the first one that I really get to celebrate! Yeah, I had my 5th barkday here, at Airedale Heaven, last year, but I had only been in the witness protection program for 3 days then. I was so nervous being in my new home, that my barkday wasn't really that big of a deal.
This year, I'm REALLY celebrating! My blind frog decided to celebrate with me by 'sploding right in front of my face. Wasn't that nice of him? He shot stuffing right out of his arm pit just for ME!

My mom says he should really go in the trash, but since he's the stuffie that I love the most, she says I can keep him a while longer. Yay! As you can see, our squirrel/racoon still lives! Sometimes, Poppy performs her secret ritual on him, but none of us have bitten into him enough to make him 'splode. Mom says it's a good thing since he's filled with tiny styrofoam pellets like Pokey the lion was. Mom used Pokey's stuffing to ship some stuffs she sold on Ebay and some lady got mad. We don't know why...her glass stuff arrived without being broken and our mom put a note on the outside of the box for her to open it outside. Maybe she didn't read the note!
As some of you know, last Sunday was my Gotcha Day! I had ice cream and some special treats! Woohoo! Mom said I can't have too many treats though, since I need to lose 3 to 5 pounds. Boo! We were supposed to have my big pawty on Monday, over at Ezzy Rider and Jagger's house, but it rained most of the day, so I just celebrated at home with Poppy and Penny. Today, our mom is running away with Aunt Wendy, so maybe she'll bring me back a really cool present! Yeah, they run away at least one day a week, but they always come back! They call it their mental health day...whatever THAT means!
Well, everybuddy, I'm off to enjoy my special day!
Patches (and Poppy and Penny too)
