My Upcoming Biwfday

Tomowwow is my fifth biwfday and I wanted it to be special, I saw on some othew bloggies that some fwiends did a commentathon on theiw Biwfdays (you know, donate some gween papews fow evewy comment left...well, my piggy bank is not soopew full, but I can give $.50 fow each comment, but whewe to donate????? )

so I called my gweat fwiend , the mayow of blogviell, the honowable Fwankie Fuwtew fow his advice

hewe's what he said:

Dearest  YOUNG Furend,
      Five is a grrrreat age to turn..  I know beclaws I did it back in May.  hehehe
      I had to give this a little bit of thought... butt I was thinkin that you could...   put the names of all the commentors in one of your lovely Paw Bags (purses)  and pick one...  and that lucky "winner" would get to choose who the green papers would go to. 
    You are soooooo right... there are so many who Deserve help. 
  THIS is a very VERY much generous thingy that you are plannin.  I am like YOU.. it is better to give than to receive.
Hope this helps a bit.
Hugs from my hill to YOU...  Birfday Girrrrrrl. "

speaking of phones, 
my fuwwiends fwom the Woad Dog Tales called me eawliew this week to intewview me about mommi's paintings
I was sooo honowed, 
they awe feetoowing the intewview on theiw Awtsy Fawtsy Fwiday today pleeez go visit them and wead all the clevew things they ask!

Now that I had a plan, I decided to celebwate.
My sweet Gussie Love came to pick me up in his Gussie mobile and we went fow a wild wide..he said I could wide wif him any time...sighhhhhhhhhhhh 
he also vewy thoughtfully awwanged fow me to have an aftewnoon wif my giwlfwiends getting pampewed at a spa (my BFF Lacie said i weally needed it now that I am OLD)

I even got a pedicoowe

aftew that I went to the wooftop that I'm getting weady so all of you can come and celebwate wif me...I know I'm a day eawly, but these things take planning and time and I want it to be pawfect ...when you come pleez help youwselves to dwinkies and cake, and wemembew evewy time you comment, It means anothew fifty centses to help some fuwwkids in need

I know my Biwfday will be pawfect wif youw help and since i aweady have evewything any pup could want, we can just celebwate being togethew .
Any comment today FWIDAY, and tomowwow SATUWDAY will count towawds the gween papews!!!!! so come and join the fun!!!

(I will let you know the wesults next week, along wif mowe about  my fifth Biwfday celebwation)

SMOOCHIE KISSES fwom an almost five yeaw old

Hi sweet fwiendses
I've been happily playing at my wun evewyday .  the weathew is still pwetty hot, but I can smell that thewe is a change coming and I'm kind of excitewed about it..I do love summew, but it's been hot fow way too long

I dunk my head and most of my body in the little pool , but even wif that, I am panting like mad aftew chasing my ball..
I'm weady fow some mowe tempewate weathew

while thewe, I stawted thinking about all the fuwwkids who awen't as lucky as I am and need ouw help cause they awe eithew sick ow don't have loving homes of theiw own

I know all of you think of this many times too and want to help

I justed to wemind you that one of the easiest things you can do is wemembew to go to the Animal Wescoo site button

on my sidebaw and pwess on it evewy day..it's a tiny little thing, but it might help some fuwwkids a little
and I want to yell and shout and wemind you  to look in youw piggy banks and maybe find some gween papews to send to the White dog Awmy and theiw vewy impawtant wowk to fight that howwibull C thing that can huwt and kill ouw hoomans as well as ouw fuwwfwiends..I have a diwect link on top of my sidebaw fow it

Thewe awe so many othew fundwaisews and I know it can be ovewwhelming..I don't want to pwessoowe you, just make you wemembew that if you pawsibully can help in some way wif the cause of youw choice..

thewe awe many woggies doing twanspawt , like Khywa (the queen of twanspawts) and now even The Houston Pittie Pack and maybe we could help them in theiw vewy impawtant wowk too

these awe thoughts that go thwoo my mind, knowing that I am a vewy lucky lucky doggie and have so many kind fwiends who make a diffewence

thank you vewy vewy much
smoochie kisses

Deewest fwiends, it is wif shame and sadness that I have to hand in my wesignation to Mayow Fwankie Fuwtew of Blogvilee as chief "agony aunt" and love advice givew

I cannot in good con shins say I know anything about dating and love wif what has twanspiwed
hewe is a bwief explanation:

as a young pup in Dogs wif Blogs, I fell head ovew paw in love wif Stanley of Goobewstan  he is tall and handsome and the Woolew of his own countwy and vewy sweet and pawswaysive

My love was wee-cipwocated, and when I got a chance to meet him, I knew twoo love..he gave me a hoomungoos wing, and I natoowally ass oomed we wewe going to be togethew aways,

but my sweet fwiends, life is not so simpull

Stanley got so busy wif wunning his countwy and taking cawe of his Giwl and his sissie , the cwown pwinsess Stella, that he couldn't spend any time wif me

I felt totally alone in the oonivewse

meantime, I had aways hawbowed secwet love fow Gus Daggew but eawly on, I didn't have a chance, cause he was so vewy much in love wif the bootiful miss Snickews..last yeaw, Gussie's love had to leave fow the wainbow bwidge and as we wewe bof vewy lonely, we decided to keep each othew company

one thing led to anothew and ouw fwiendship blossomed into love

sounds like a happy ending wight??????   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
all of a sudden Stanley told the wowld on that facebookie thing that he was in a welationship wif me

now, I have two wondewful tewwiewboyz who I'm huwting........I love them bof
will not, and can not decide,
and to make it even mowe complicated, thewe awe some othew sweetheawts who have been mowe than lovabull to me

My BFF Lacie has caught me out and wote the following lettew to me in my cap acity as love advice givew:

Dear Doggie Who Gives Advice to the Lovelorn,

     Hi!! This is Miss Lacie Teacakes from da Burgh. I wanted to tell er ask you about my BFF who is um well ENGAGED TO TWO DOGS AT ONCE!!! See this one dog..he's a Dale...gave her this hooge rock engagement ring and then he like dropped off the face of the Earth and now he's back and on FB and he thinks they are still engaged but meanwhile she's engaged to this Foxy Wire Gussie who WAIT A MINUTE...JUST ONE MINUTE...I JUST realized she never told me about that...like the whole proposal...it must have been at the PWOM er Prom and I actually don't even know who asked who...er um whom. (Lacie has been studying the grammar book given to her by Miss Enid, but that's a Wheelie and well it's too long a story...)
    So what do ya think she should do??? I mean I suppose she could channel her inner Audrey Hepburn (A Nun's Story) and go off to the Convent, but that would be a shame cuz then I would only be able to borrow her wimple and habit (um...is that like gum chewing?) and sensible shoes. Which is so like boring for me, the Lacie.
     Perhaps she could relieve both of them from their potential troth and let ME AT THOSE BOYZ.  Hmm...I don't see her doing that do you???
     Or she could marry both kids? Course only one would be legal...I mean how fun is that??? Frankly, it's better when both are illegal...
     Or she could just STOP worrying about it and enjoy the attention of two handsome boyz? And perhaps she might enjoy partaking of a large bowl of Schlag. I pretty much find that cures all problems. Not that too many boyz are EVER a problem for the Lacie...but I don't pretend to have your wisdom in these delicate matters.
      So Miss Advice Lovelorn Doggie um I mean Doggie Who ...sheesch..that's just too long a title...what do you think she should do????
                                                                                                                            Miss Lacie Teacakes
  She enclosed this pictoowe of how I would look if I entewed the convent
...I don't think it soots me, do you???

so you see, I am not one to give any advice cause I have totally messed evewything up in my love life and potentially caused sadness to the sweetest boyz on eawf

so, I'm handing in my wesignation
wespectful smoochie kisses
