A Special Day...

I'll take a break today from posting about my holiday at the beach, because today is a day of great celebration!

This day, August the 15th, is indeed a very special day, for it was 7 years ago from now that I was born into the great world... Yes, it is my barkday! I may be gettin' old, but I'll still always be young at heart, my friends!

There's yet another reason why this day is special... Perhaps a reason more important than my own barkday... Today is also the barkday of our dear friend Jackson, who just got out of intensive care after his surgery, and should be coming back home right now! The reason alone that he is recovering is enough to celebrate on this wonderful day!

Here is a picture of myself, standing with the sunset behind me... A sunset full of hope and life for the future! Jackson, though I have never met you 'till now, I pray that you will recover quickly and enjoy life to the fullest!


I hope everyone has a GRRRReat weekend! Now, let the celebrations begin!

Why Sparky....

A very Happy Birthday or Barkday to you today....you sure don't look like your seven...why you act like just a pup with your superior ball playing,swimming and agility jumping.

Yep, I got my own baseball and I have it hidden away for a special occasion...when the Dewster is not around....

Hope you get a glob of presents and we're all hoping Jackson can enjoy his big day too...

Asta Marie, WFT
