A rather delicate matter...

Enough with the photos! Bring on the cake!
Some of you more observant pups may have noticed from the Dogs with Blogs calendar that it's my birthday in August. Actually, I don't know when my exact birthday is, but the 15th August is the date that J1 & J2 rehomed me 3 years ago and so I decided that I would choose this as my special day.

Onto a rather delicate subject now. Please don't be offended but I do not want any gifts. I hope I'm not being too presumptuous here! I would love to receive e-cards or comments on my blog, but I would rather you made a small donation to your favourite dog (or human) charity than send me a present. I already have everything I need; a loving home with 2 humans that dote on me. What more could anypup want? Also, J1 is a bit stingy with my pocket money so I am unable to reciprocate to all my pals on their special day and I don't want anydog to feel bad or left out.

I'll be spending my birthday with my Irish Terrier pals, Molly & Seamus and I'm sure we'll have a pupcake or two. Don't worry, I'll make sure J1 takes lots of photos!

Hey Jackson...
I think that is very smart of long as we can celebrate your day with you in some way and that YOU are happy that is all that counts!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Jackson! That is what I did when it was my Barkday! I too am kept really short on the pocket money scene too!

But Sunshade still sent me a present, and so did Ume from Japan....they were so kind when they knew I could not really send back. You are a kind and thoughtful boy you know?

Hope you are feeling ok?

Much love and licks Marvin xxxxxxx

Dear Jackson,

My birthday is in August too! At least that is what my mum had deduced only after much calculations, since nobody knew the exact date. I am determined to celebrate for the whole month of August, red eye or not!

Happy happy barkday! May all treats and dreams come true.

Lots of wiry loves,
Mango (and Party)
