Happy Barkday to Me!

Hey pals, Here I am in all my nekkidness. Yes, I'm sporting a rather strange hairdo at the moment. Can't see it catching on, can you? Those vet nurses seem to have run amok with the clippers. Can you see my staples? I've got 21 of them, yep, count em! J2 refuses to look cos he's a bit squeamish, hehehe, what a wimp!

Now onto the important birthday stuff. I was delighted with the birthday flyover, which I saw from my bedroom window...Thank you Aire Ruby and everyone who flew by...

Molly & Taffy, Agatha & Archie and Eric all sent pawsome e-cards which unfortunately I can't show here but believe me, they were all pretty cool.

Noah and the gang sent me this:

From my new pal in Belgium, Snoopy:

Get well and barkday cards from Lenny:

Get well soon and birthday cards from Eric:

Card and pawsome gifts from Maggie & Mitch - at last I've got a snozzle!

Thanks pals, this stuff looks absolutely delish! And they even sent J1 this pawsome gift, handmade by their mum:

Isn't it wonderful? Although I don't really know what J1 has done to deserve it, it's not her birthday is it?

Get well soon and birthday cards from Axel:

Get well soon and birthday cards from Ben, Wang Wang, Twinkle and Hippo

From Blue:
Phew, I had no idea I was so pupular!
A heartfelt thank you to all my pals, new and old who kindly dropped by to wish me well. I'll try and visit you all but it may take a while...

Jackson you look very handsome with your's like you are in a zipped up cardigan old chap. Glad you had a good barkday and are on the mend.

You are one brave dude. Hope you are enjoying the nursing attention and getting lots of snacks.

Ax and Fam

Shmoo said...

Wow, what wonderful cards!
I don't like the haircut, it removes your fluffiness and fluffy is in, but I'm sure it'll all grow back.

take care and rest


Daisy said...

Happy, happy Barkday, Jackson! I am so happy to see you home.

Faya said...

Sophie Brador said...

Jackson! Your new hair style rocks. I love it! It is so chic. So stylish. So edgy. You are like nouveau punk. If mom would let me, I would get a hair cut just like that. Although I am a bit worried that you are cold at night. Maybe I should send you my blankie. It has little ballerinas on it. Mom says it;s nothing but a rag now, but I think it's beautiful. And you are too Jax!


Blue said...

HAPPY BARKDAy JACKSON!!! Sorry I couldn't send you a card but I'd like to send you my family's version of the birthday song. The first verse is the traditional song. The second verse goes like this:

Lorenza said...

Hi, Jackson!
I am so happy to see you!
Yes, your staples look like a zipper on your skin!
I know you need to rest a lot. Take it easy and you will be fully recovered soon!
Kisses and hugs to You, J1 and J2!

Gus said...

Indeed, happy barkday and many happy returns. We are enjoying the visit with Eric's mum, she has been a super hostess. Wish we could spend some time with you, but understand the need for rest and quiet. Ummm...have you seen the interpretive dance yet. I don't know if that qualifies as rest and quiet,gut it made me feel better.


Joe Stains said...

happy birthday, I hope Tanner's incessant yelling didn't disturb you as we flew by. Wally and Mango both tried to sit on him but he is very persistent.

That haircut might not be so bad here in AZ in the summer.

Don't worry about visiting, just rest and get better buddy!

Molly and Taffy said...

Jackson great to see you home and even managing to blog, what a star you are.
Have plenty of rest and take care.

Agatha and Archie said...

Hello our dear Jax!!! Now do not worry about your hair do..In fact we think it rocks..rather punk..and Ya know how Archie sometimes runs around the apartment and dances to punk/rock music and bangs his head around?? He is going to ask PL1 to cut his hair just like you so you won't feel alone..and he is going to tell people it is the latest punk cut....There that should make you feel better..ret up little one..and drink your tea and eat your goodies so you will heal quickly..and then you will romping onthe beach in no time!! Love A+A

Georgeous said...

Hi Jackson.Pip Squeek here. Pawsome cards you got there pal and J1's spoon - that's handsome.

Wiry get weel wags, Eric (squeeking)

Noah the Airedale said...

Hey Jackson,
The new hairstyle looks pawesome and the girls will go gaga over those stitches.

You're well loved matie. Everyone was very worried about you and you pulled through. Paw power sure is something isn't it!!! We still send healing zen and won't stop until you're totally back to being 100%.

We just wanted to let you know that we think all the cards you received for your barkday are wonderful and the lovely gift for J1. Take good care of yourself. You are a very brave young man and your J's certainly love you with all their heart.

Happy Barkday, Jackson! Of course you're super popular! I mean, who in their right mind won't like you? You're handsome and witty. What's not to like?
PS Yeah, looks like those nurses did go a little nuts with the clippers! I wish you a speedy recovery, pal!

Abby said...

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Jackson,
It really doesn't matter how naked you look now cos what that really matters is that you are well and on the mend! Nothing beats that!!
On the contrary, some girl pups may find that you look ultra macho with the scar..

Anonymous said...

Oh, Jason! Amazing shots and I love your stylish hairdo )

Sally and Rufus said...

Happy Birthday,
Sorry we couldn't come over but we got the nasty Kennel Cough, we are not to sneeze or lick on any beast.
Hope you had a wicked party.

i'm sorry we missed your Barkday! i am so very glad you are home and the surgery went well.

i hope you had the most wonderful day!

Deetz said...

I love your staples. I think it is stylish. My mum would be fretting all over you right now, worried sick and acting like a crazy lady.....Thats your pawents right now, uh? I bet they are so happy you are home with them. I know I am very happy! Those are the most wonderful cards and as soon as you are feeling like playing, I am sure there will be a huge party with pawtini's and stuff. You just get well.

BWTH Dog House said...

Hey Jackson, glad you are home sleeping on your bed. Those stapler look fine to us, your face still as handsome as always...and you sure look more macho with those scar.

Hope you like our cards and we want you to rest more & get well soon.

Extra slurpy licks,

Kirby said...

Hi Jackson,

Happy belated barkday! I hope you had a bit of a party, but still got all the rest you need to fully recover. The doggie hospital people really did go crazy with the clippers. You sure did get a lot of staples. How did they get them in? I'm intrigued just thinking about it. Happy barkday pal!

Your pal,

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Dear Jackson,

Happy Barkday wishes to you. That is some scar that you have. My dad is squeamish about things like that to. I'm sure you will give the stuffies an even bigger scar. Get well soon my fellow stuffie destroyer.

Luna Licks.

Hello Jackson,
I'm so happy you are getting better and celebrating your birthday!

We've found that anytime staples are involved, just a simple glance at the humans results in treats galore!!!

Heal well, sweet friend!
