Happy Birthday To Him

One guess whose birthday it is today. Yup, his! He's six years old.

He's had a lovely walk on the beach (mind you, he does that most days) and tonight he's having a bath. Not that he knows it yet, but even though he doesn't like the getting wet bit, he loves being blow-dried, so I'm sure he'll be fine in the end.

As for me, I'm going bog-eyed with all this checking of typeface. Never mind, it could be worse, I could still be at work!

Ahhh, Happy Birthday to Grumpy. What a sweet-looking dog!

Take care of those eyes-- too much checking typeface can cause eye strain.

HB doggie! Debs, there's not a lot worse than editing - almost as bad as being in work! Fx

Shirley Wells said...

Aw, belated happy birthday, Grumpy! I hope there were lots of treats after the bath.

Flowerpot said...

Dear Grumps - happy birthday!

Debs said...

tam - acually, he has a kiss curl on his head, and R insists that I did it on purpose when drying him. I didn't.

jj - lol, hoovered! Brilliant. Mine just tries to eat the damn thing as I move it along the carpet.

tf - nope, he did get a sausage though.

dj kirkby - I completely agree.

carol - thanks, he did, sort of!

chris - many thanks to you both x

fionnuala - I would rather edit. In fact, I'd rather visit the dentist than go to work!

shirley - there were, he was rather spoilt.

flowerpot - thanks v much.

Hope Mr. Grumpy had non-stop celebrations for his special day. He'd probably be satisfied to skip the bath and just get a nice whoosh of warm blowdryer wind across his back. How handsome he is in his fancy chair. Perhaps he will be a RNA nominee for sexiest thing on four legs next year? Our boy Richard A did well! Don't know if German hotties are considered. If so, I'd add Benno Furmann to the list. Didn't you just love him in Joyeux Noel?

I have seen The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and it was both uplifting and heartbreaking. Excellent character development all around. I'll order the book today, based on your recommendation, Debs.

Troy said...

Oh dear - I'm a day late, belated birthday greetings to Grumpy. 42 years old in human terms, the end of youth and the start of middle age. Welcome to the club Grumpy!
And keep up the beach exercise.

Christina Phillips said...

Aww happy b-day to Grumpy! I wouldn't be able to get the hair dryer near my little Maltese-cross, she'd need to be tied down first!!!

Debs said...

faye - I agree with you about Benno Furmann. In fact, I think I may have to see the film yet again. I love it so much.

I was thrilled about RA doing so well, isn't he gorgeous.

You'll love The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. I'm looking forward to seeing the film, but it's bound to make me cry.

troy - oh crikey, Grumpy is now turning into a grumpy old man (well, dog).

christina phillips - lol, I can just picture it, bless.

Swerdnic said...

Aw, grump! hope you had a good day! Happy belated birthday. lol. Lx

Phillipa said...

Hope Grumpy was pampered...

Debs said...

swerdnic - thanks, he had a lovely day. Well, I did, I'm not so sure about him!

phillipa - he certainly was.
