Happy Birthday Nigel Buggers!

We are still on vacation, and the day has nearly escaped us, but that's because it was spent properly - with the dogs. I just wanted to drop in and share. I've no doubt Nigel will be nursing a hangover tomorrow, but for now it could not get one bit better - we slept in late after some 2am Wii sessions with visiting relatives that had the dogs dodging our legs. Most of us were in bed until ten this morning. The rain has passed and the dog yard has been busy. The river calls, and we will answer with a swim in just a bit.

Next up, PB and fluff sandwiches. After that who knows -but it won't suck regardless. We are together; at peace, in a house of love.

All for you Nigel. I know you will never read this, but when we lost Casper I was broken, and you walked in to our home and healed my heart. I don't know how I could ever show enough gratitude. Perhaps I should give you a blog, or maybe a Facebook page... ;)

  1. Do you watch Cake Boss? Maybe you could get a job there. My family watched like 10,000 episodes of that show last night...

  2. A wonderful sounding birthday and vacation. We love that kitty cat for Nigel. Do you suppose it will be flung to the far reaches of the world or blown up in the driveway?

  3. Nothing heals a broken heart like finding out it can expand to love another. Happy Birthday to Nigel for certain, and many happy returns to all of you for the laughs, love, and fun you share with all of us! Buggers, you and that pink cake? To die for Dahling! You know you love it. Pink brings out the crazy in your eyes!!!

  18. Happy Birthday, Nigel. What an awesome birthday toast written for you today!

    But don't take away the Photoshop. We keep complaining that The Herd never gets thought balloons. Our human help is too lazy.

  20. Usually the blindside has me doubled over with laughter but no, not this time. The watery eyes are due to the love that shows for those present and those past.

    Happy Birthday Nigel! You are a lucky dog despite the Mad Photoshop World you are drawn into on an almost daily basis-along with the rest of us. Thanks for sharing your skinny self with us!

    Enjoy every minute with your 2 & 4 leggers.

  21. Don't complain. We wish Jan knew how to photoshop. We don't get to have any of that fun.

    And you look so cute.

  22. I am thankful that you were able to spend this very special day with all that love you because in this mean cruel world all we have is our loved ones furry and non. I hope and pray that you and your entire family share many years of joy and love together! Bless you for allowing us into your life and sharing the love you all have for one another.

  44. Happy birthday Nigel! Meanwhile, my Old Girl says PB&Fluff sandwiches are the BEST. I say only if they have Greenies on them.

  45. Happy Birthday Nigel. We think you are pretty cool (after we've come to grips with your antics and hard-partying ways. Are you and David Duchovney friends? Just wondering.)

    Have a great day!

    Lots of treats,

  54. A little late, but happy happy birthday nigel boy! It sounded like a wonderful day.... and even better because the humans got to play wii until 2am! we've never stayed up that late playing... mainly because we are in need of some good game recomendations...we love all the sports and carnival games... think we might try a board game or something next
