Barkday Thoughts.........

I Hey Everydog, Hammie and the one Cat we recently befriended (we're workin' on that....we want more Kitty friends...)

It's my 1st Barkday so I get to post...('Course I post an average of 3:1; outnumbering Scruffy and Babystan. But that's what happens if you're the alpha female.)

Thanks to all who sent well wishies!!!!! It is a true gift of your friendship that I will never take for granted! I love you all!

Mumsie and I had an important talk this week. Right after she grounded me. She said she hopes when I grow up I will be a caring compassionate female who tries to make good decisions and who learns from her mistakes. That we will occasionaly NOT make the right choice, but if we learn something from it that it can be a PAWSITIVE thing.

I've thought 'bout the cheerleading outfit I picked for the game. I knew I'd get in trouble. But I wanted to wear it cuz....well...um...to be popular with the boyz. But, now I realize that it's not me. And I need to respect myself, first. So I learned something.

I guess this is part of growin' up, but Mumsie sez we will learn all our lives. I can't wait! I'll miss being a pup a little, I guess...it was a pretty innocent time. But, I'm ready now to start lookin' at things from other animal's perspecives a bit now...ya know walk in the other dog's, kitties or hammies paws. See what I can do to be a voice for kindness and compassion.....

That's what we talked about.......

Penny & Poppy said...

Happy, happy barkday, Lacie! If you are anything like most terriers, you will continue to be sort of puppy-like for many, many years to come. Even Penny, who is almost 9, still acts like a puppy sometimes. Life is more fun that way!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy & Penny

Hercules said...

Your Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LACIE!!!!! That was a pretty serious talk you and your Mommy had, but it is true...I'm two now and I would agree with her. I've learned a lot in my two years...like not to eat the bag the hotdogs come in, just eat the hotdogs...or, if I counter surf, make sure I don't pull the plate off-then its too obvious...Life's little lessons are so valuable!

Love, Hercules

Maya and Kena said...

Hey there Lacie!
Happy 1st Barkday!!
Glad you had a talk with you mommy...that's always a good thing to sit and talk. But don't worry, we all make mistakes sometimes, like your mommy said.
Hope you have a great day with lots of belly rubs and treats!
*Hands over a pawful of treats*
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Daisy said...

Lacie, I am very proud to be your catfriend. It sounds like you are learning lots of very important lessons now that you are getting all grown up!

Koobuss said...

That is very nice, Lacie, and I wish you all the best. Being an adult can be hard at times, but it is still a lot of fun. Besides, as they say, "You can't be a puppy forever, but you can always be immature." (Don't take that seriously, Lacie!!)

You have a lot of responsibility there Lacie. As the only girl, you are outnumbered by your bruvvers, so you have to be extra tuff. Scruffy, and from what I've seen of BabyStan, both need somebody to keep them in line. And that is YOU, Lacie! Nobody can do it better!

Love ya!!

Happy Birthday Sweetie!!!

See you next week at Mount Hairy Lodge!!

Extra Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Koobuss said...

Hey Lacie,

It's me, Koobuss, again.

I think that Dewey has a crush on you. He's really cute. Also, have you seen his new Lakie baby bruvver, Toby yet? He is adorable. I'm going to introduce him on my blog soon. I'm sure all the girls will love him.
(Darn it. Just after you've reformed.....)

Koobuss Kisses again,
Koobie

Mango said...

Lacie, watch out, I think you are now officially a teenager which is when doggies get into their worstest troubles.

Go easy on the guys, OK? You gals can be soooooo bossy.
