Happy Birthday to Goose!

We want to wish our buddy Goose a very happy 15th birthday!  Fifteen!!!!  And yet he doesn't look a day over ten!  (Go visit our buddy Goose and give him some birthday love - go on, we'll wait!)    If you don't know Goose, you should spend some time perusing his bloggie; not only is Goose a wise, handsome guy, but he and his Mom have a lot of funballs times together.

However, we have to confess that Goose's birthday is even extra special for us, because yesterday our Mom got to meet Goose in the furs, and take some photos of him.  She has like 87 million photos of Goose, so it will take a while to get them all organized, but here are a few photos from her shoot with Goose and his Mom yesterday, celebrating Goose's birthday.  (He's been celebrating for the last couple of weeks, but can you blame him?)

Goose, a Momma's boy in the best possible way!
Mom, being Mom, brought The Dreaded Party Hats. (I have a feeling Goose wasn't given any advance warning about these party hats.... and seriously, what is it with our Mom and these silly hats?!?)
Of course, Goose is used to his Mom putting silly hats on his head, so the two of them have this routine down.

It's okay, Goose.  We both look silly.  And besides, I have a plan....

Mom, tell me more about this plan....

When Dr. Liz gets here for the group photo, well, you'll see.  But in the meantime, act natural.
Ah-ha!  Goose and his Mom managed something we have never been able to accomplish - they got our Mom to wear one of those dreaded party hats!  Goose, if we didn't already love and admire you, this would have totally sold us on your wonderfulness!

Good job, Goose!!!!
Goose and his Mom have a very special bond, and our Mom was really lucky to capture that special bond and make it tangible.

Have a great birthday, Goose!!!  And thanks for getting her to wear one of those silly hats!!!

Oh yes the dreaded hats. After about year #10 I learned to just go with it. Butt, if I do say so myself, I do look the best in the party hats out of the three of us. Can't tell ya Fi and Abby how wonderful it was to meet your mom. She just let me be me, petted me and said very nice things about me. And while I am not much of a kissy dog (except with my MOM) I gave yours a little smooch. What fun I had. And my MOM gets happy tears in her eyes when she looks at the photos your mom took. What a blessed day it was.Maybe someday I can meet you two lovely ladies in the furs.

It took us a while to stop laughing over the three of them in the party hats (GO, GOOSE!), and once we did, we couldn't stop saying "awwww" over that last shot! Your mom did SUCH a great job! And wow, to meet Goose and Goose's MOM -- that is SO COOL!!!
My personal recommendation is to EAT the party hats, of course, but perhaps that's just a Siberian thing.
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
