Today is my 7th barkday!
Hi every buddy! It's me, Patches! Today is my 7th birthday! I haven't got any presents yet, but I got some special stuffs on top of my breakfast and then I helped Mom eat HER breakfast. She says her and I will go on a special walkie later!
Monday was my second Gotcha Day too! Yep, it has been two whole years since Mom and Aunt Wendy rescued me from that lady who didn't feed me enough. I certainly don't have THAT problem anymore. Mom says I get TOO much to eat, now. I didn't get any presents for my Gotcha Day either, but I got to spend some quality alone time outside with my mom. Our neighbor is replacing his deck so there are peoples over there all day and Penny can't stop barking at them, so she had to go inside. Not ME, though! I was a good girl so Mom let me stay out and watch her trim bushes.
Remember last week when we were barking at the TV installers? Well, this is the "before" picture of what was going on. Our dad's 64 inch TV quit working on the day before Thanksgiving and it was going to cost way too much to fix it, so our mom had the hospice peoples move a TV from the 'puter room to the kitchen so our dad could have a TV to watch.
This is what it looks like NOW! A new TV that isn't quite as big and even with the TV stand under it, it takes up lots less space. We can actually see the wall again! The TV guys actually had to come twice because our mom noticed scratches all over the top of the stand when they left. She went back to the store and picked out a different stand so they came back on Tuesday to swap them out. Last Friday would have been our pawrents' 30th anniversary, so the TV is a present from our mom to herself. I wonder if she'll let me go get my own barkday present! I hear that it's a sure way of getting what you actually WANT!
Well, every buddy, I have to go and try to get Penny to come in, now. Any minute, now, the peeps will be coming to work next door and I'm pretty sure they would prefer to work without all the barking!
Happy Memorial Day to all our buddies in the U.S. Don't forget to thank our military peoples for keeping us safe!
Patches (and Penny the barker too)
