No adulthood for me!

Okay. My adoring public has spoken (thank you, adoring public!), and I am making it official. Even though I am turning 1 on Friday, I will not relinquish my puppyhood until I have to. Which means that until I have to become a Role Model (perish the thought!), I will remain a puppy. And even then, I’ll probably still be a puppy. But I’ll be a Role Model Puppy!

So, I have spoken.

None of this ‘adult’ stuff for me. That speaks too much of things like ‘responsibility’ and ‘good behavior’. Bah! Bah, I tell you! Bah!

So there.

I would have a longer post but my Mom has been ‘busy’ all day today on the computer. “Doing work,” she says. Looks like she’s been taking pictures of things (not Me, BTW!!!) and making lists. I’m not sure how this qualifies as work, but she thinks it is. Real work is chewing a hole in the comforter so you can let all the poor, trapped stuffings free. Or barking at delivery men. Or even protecting the Big Dog Bed from the cat (this is a really hard task, BTW!). That stuff is work. Playing on the computer? Not so much.

Mom only got a couple of pictures of me today. Hello?!? McFly! (Sorry… I like to watch old movies!) If you are using the flashy box all day, you’d think she could get more than one or two pictures of me. But no! The nerve!

She was upstairs most of the afternoon, and so she got pictures of Mr. Bufus. (Yes, he's picked the sunniest spot in the house!

So what is a girl (or girls) to do? What else can you do? Nap.

But Mom did take me on a hike yesterday. And she got new hiking shoes (she says her old ones are falling apart - it wasn't my fault - honest!) so she's promising me a hike tomorrow.

Come ON, Mom!

We went on a new (shorter *ahem*) trail yesterday.

Here I am, contemplating the route, because that sign told me that I'd have to use my AWD mode. (Again, Mom didn't get too many pictures. She's been bad about that. She PROMISES she'll get lots of pictures of my birthday tomorrow. Or maybe Saturday, since she wants to do my party right - and I'd rather wait a day and have a GOOD party, rather than a rushed affair tomorrow.)

So I'll leave you with me as the Eternal Puppy of Doom!

*kissey face*

Pee Ess: Thanks for all the birthday wishes - and thanks for letting me know that I don't have to give up Puppyhood! That is a relief!

Seriously, don't give up puppyhood until it's right for you. I'm still a puppy! Sure... I'm well over 13.... but I am STILL a puppy because I SAY I am!!!

Hi, Fiona...

I'm glad you decided to remain a puppy...Adult stuff doesn't sound good to me...

I'm "officially" not a puppy, but I still act like one most of the time...

Abby xxxoooo

Hi, Fiona!
Being and adult means lots of responsabilities and boring things!
Be a puppy forever!

Are you kidding? You can be a puppy forever! Addie says she'll always be a puppy. You are one nice looking Doodle.... I like that you're sporting the nice clean shaved face! (of course, we're biased as we like Poodles ;) ) Great blog too. Look forward to reading more.

Martine said...

AGREED!!! you should never have to grow up... I'm an eternal pup and since I'm white I think I was born with the fountan of youth fur!

Happy birthday, Fiona! Now if you'll excuse me I have to go reconcile myself to the fact that "Back to the Future" is now an old movie ...

Sally said...

Happy birthday! Thank you for dropping by our blog - you are very cute! And we agree - you can be a puppy forever - being an adult is very over rated!

Lots of licks

"You're only young once...but you can be immature for a lifetime!"

That's my motto.

But I think you'll like the grown-up dress we've picked out for you for the wedding. And that handsome Goldendoodle Clive will be there as well...there could be romance in the air!

Happy 1st Birthday!

Your pal,
