birthday boy...

we interrupt the mysterious saga of the ring to bring you this....

a celebration of the wonder that is 'goober'.

happy birthday buddy! sorry, no snow today but i did try to fit in all of the stuff you like. you got pizza for breakfast!

you went for many walks and peed on many things.

you got to sleep in the sun in the car. and drink water from a cup. sorry no ice cubes today!

we didn't make it swimming but you did get to play in a stream.

and of course, there was ball.

um, no, not for you.

but i will let you pick out your dinner tonight. mmmm, new zealand summer. with real sausages.

he will also carry these to his blanket and unwrap them at christmas.

you didn't make out like you did at christmas. but you did get a big meaty bone.

i can't believe it's been eight years.

ps... stop hogging the bed. :)

Happy Birthday Goober! Pizza for breakfast! Goober you are one lucky dog. That was such a great post. Now I think some peanut butter is in order and then it will have been one sublime day all around.

one of his many nicknames is big ears.

What a gorgeous dog! Tell him he has an admiring stranger who owns a Lab mix that looks somewhat like him. Nice blog too by the way.

A carefully detailed and lovely look at Goober's special day. A much loved doggie...'tis true.

A better documented B-day than my eighth b-day which explains a LOT about my skewed view of the world! :)
