A Shameless Plug!

Can you believe that my Mom didn’t take ANY pictures on our hike yesterday?!? What Is Up With That?!? Hello? We hike, you take pictures, you post pictures. How difficult is this to understand? How can my adoring audience adore me with No Pictures?!?

Note from Fi’s Mom: It was the same hike we’ve done the last several days, and Fi was behind me the entire time, making it rather difficult for photo ops. However, I get the hint. More pictures. Got it.

Anyhoo, since Mom didn’t get any pictures of me, I’m going to do a shameless plug, instead.

Friday is my birthday. I’ll be a whole year old. Mom says that I will stop being a puppy and become an adult dog. I don’t get how one day I’m a puppy and the next day I’m an adult. It’s sort of like telling a human, “Okay, you’re 21, you are now an adult, go act like one.” Yeah. Right. So I doubt that I’m going to transmogrify into an Adult overnight. Besides, why would I want to?!?

Anyway, I hope Mom is planning a big party for me. Well, okay, maybe a small party. I don’t really have any doggie friends here locally (the two that I know are Really Badly Behaved, and Mom and Dad think they are Bad Influences on me), so I think my party should just be Me, Mom, Dad, TaiChi and Bufus. I also think my party should have cake, and party hats and pressies. Mom, are you taking notes? I think a crown (or a tiara) would also not be amiss. I think that my day should include lots of treats, time at The Park, a hike, and possibly even a ride in a car that lets the wind blow my ears around. And, lots of pampering, of course. And maybe a chance to sneak up to the cat’s room to snarf down his lunch! And, most importantly, it should include people taking Lots Of Pictures Of Meeee! Mom!!

Yeah. So. With no pictures, I guess I’ll have Mom dig up some puppy pictures to celebrate my last days of puppyhood.

This is when Mom and Dad first picked me up (in the Corvette! Heehee! Mom had a towel on her lap so I wouldn't accidentally piddle on her or the Big Yellow Car) - we stopped at a truck stop on the way home and Dad snapped a picture with Mom's phone (which is why it is so small).

All of these pictures are from my first week at home. Being a puppy is VERY hard work!

Can you believe that I was So Little that I couldn't even get up on the couch?!?

Here I am listening very closely as TaiChi tries to teach me the ropes. Can you believe that I was smaller than TaiChi?!? She's 18lbs, and in this picture, Mom says I'm like 10lbs. (I'm about 55lbs now.) I can't believe that I was EVER smaller than TaiChi. Wow.

This is my favorite picture of my as a Very Little Puppy. I'm with my Dad, and I'm Very Happy.

And just to give you some perspective, here's a picture of me and TaiChi a couple of months ago.

I'm all folded up there, and I'm still WAY bigger than she is! I can't believe How Little I Was!!!!

Anyway, I'll post more pictures of me from the last year in the next couple of days, all to celebrate my birthday! I still can't believe that I'm going to be an 'adult'. Hah!

Don't worry Fiona, you are still young enough to be a star like me, er, I mean us. I'm 6, Dixie is 5, and Harles is SEVEN (omd I KNOW) so really you are like primo material for being young and famous!

Nibbles Treats said...

Why not make this a birthday week? Presents and treats every day instead of just the one. That eases you into adulthood.

Lots of treats,
Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

It's not time to grow up until you're 2 mama says BOL.. Wow TaiChi is tiny now compared to you. Does she respect you or make you respect her? Have you see'd all my pictures mama posted of my flappers in action? Wish we could have a flappy eared fun time together..

Bell girl..
If I furget your barkday by chance (WHICH I SHOULDN'T) HAPPY HAPPY BARKDAY TO WOO..

The Army of Four said...

Oh, wow! You were as cute as a puppy as you are beautiful as an almost one year old! (I hope I said that right!)
You know... pups our size aren't considered out of the puppy stage until we're 2. Just something to keep in mind. How tall are you? Ha roo roo roo!
Play bows,

1000 Goldens said...

How exciting that you are going to be one! It is very funny to see pictures where Tai Chi is bigger than you :o) We hope you have an awesome birthday!

Twix said...

Hi Fiona! I'm confused, I would think you would have to be a teenager before becoming an adult. Besides, being a teen gives you an excuse for misbehaving. I think since your mom didn't take any photos of your hike you should get some extra treats today!
Love and hugs,
