Happy Birthday, Me -- The Aftermath

Posted on 2007.10.09 at 12:54
So I turned 46 on Saturday, and was met with a large number of birthday greetings here on LJ and elsewhere, including Balloons from risiepookie and these from I know not whom.

I also managed to negotiate a cell-phone change for my birthday. I'm now on AT&T, so if you have an AT&T Cell, and want to talk with me, let me know and we can do it for free! If you're not on AT&T and want to chat, well, I'll pay for my minutes if you'll pay for yours.

Sunday, we had the fun of bathing the bear-shaped dog. This was supposed to render Mandy flea-free and unitching, but that seems not to have worked out as well as we'd hoped, and she's still scratching. I had thought of posting about it as her -- "Help! The humans trapped me in that smelly little room, and put water and stinky stuff on me!" -- but, well, didn't.

So thanks to all for birthday wishes and generosity! Onward now toward 47!

Ah, dude. Completely forgot to wish you a Happy Day! *slaps self* That's what I get for not doing as soon as I get the messages from LJ.

So how about a BELATED Happy day, just to keep the good wishes flowing.

And let me know when the dues for triofic.com need to be paid. I'm in a little better financial shape this year, so I'm offering to split it with you 50/50. How's that for a birthday present??

Cheers, mate!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday! I have a special love for people who adopt unwanted animals and give them a good home. You and your wife are the best. Mandy is so cute, I just want to hug her. I've got to admit that just looking at her coat makes me tired. All that brushing...I'm so glad that your wife enjoys grooming her. All of my pets have been adopted and they have brought so much joy into my life. My pug mix Jack is sweet natured, goofy clown and I don't know what I'd do without him. Thanks for sharing your pictures, they made me smile.

Re: Happy Birthday

I'm a big believer in adopting from shelters, and in adopting grown-ups to boot. There was a movie a few years ago called "All Dogs Go To Heaven," and I completely believe that's true. All dogs are good dogs, all dogs deserve to be loved. How her previous family could have given Mandy up to move is a never-ending source of bafflement and wonder to me.

I'm so grateful I found her.

Our friends have a dog who looks hairy like Mandy - they tend to get her hair clipped abit, so that there isn't as much weight on it. However, looking at the snow in one of those pictures - egads! Better keep as much protection on as possible.

Actually, I am planning to get her clipped whan I can. Her hindquarters got really badly matted. She's an indoor dog, so she'll be all right.
we can skip to the coital fury

She's a totally wonderful dog, and I'm simultaneously heartbroaken and grateful that there was a family that had her and gave her up.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, they are appreciated.

The bear-shaped dog got not only a nose-kiss, but a belly-scritchin' in your honor.

And, er... Thanks!

A belated Happy Birthday from me too.

Hope you manage to win the battle against the evil fleas soon, or at least fight them to a standstill.

I thank you for the birthday wishes, as appreciated today as on the day itself, and pretty much every mammal in the house thanks you for the flea-related wishes!
