Happy St. Paddy's Day and Happy 2nd Birthday, Mr. Doogie Dog!
Why yes indeedy! Mr. Duhgall was born on St. Patrick's Day! These are pics of his first birthday last St. Paddy's Day. He had lots of doggy friends in attendance - oh, and of course our wonderful friends, too.
Little lad opening his birthday presents like a pro with no help at all from us!
Now be sure to save some of that cake for all of your other doggy friends!
Two of my three boys...one Irish, the other Scottish!
And what goes better with St. Paddy's day and a Scottish Terrier's First Birthday? Well, simple - BAGPIPES! Here our sweet friend, Jared, plays away on his pipes. A lovely day for all and a wonderful little 1st birthday party for Mr. Doogs.

Happy 2nd Birthday my sweet little baby
and Happy St. Paddy's Day to all!

Cheers! Clink!

An Irish Blessing:

May brooks and trees and singing hills Join in the chorus too, And every gentle wind that blows Send happiness to you.

A BLESSING FOR YOU AND YOURS May the grace of God’s protection And His great love abide Within your home-within the hearts Of all who dwell inside.


Some Irish humor for ye~

Joey-Jim was tooling along the road one fine day when the local policeman, a friend of his, pulled him over. "What's wrong, Seamus?" Joey-Jim asked. "Well didn't ya know, Joey-Jim, that your wife fell out of the car about five miles back?" said Seamus. "Ah, praise the Almighty!" he replied with relief. "I thought I'd gone deaf!"

Murphy, O'Brien & Cassey sitting in a bar dicussing the words they would like to hear spoken over their coffins at their wakes. Casey says, "I would like them to say 'He was a wonderful family man- he always supported his wife and kids, and they never wanted for anything'". O' Brien says, "That's lovely Casey. But I would like to hear them say, 'He was a great man in the community - he undertook a lot of projects to make his community a better place.'" Murphy says, "Thats's very nice, O'Brien. But I would like to hear them say, 'Look! He's moving!'"

Irish Stew
We've got our own recipe for Irish stew: Get some meat, some potatoes and a lot of Guinness Stout. Drink all of the stout. Forget about the stew.

Sweet Duhgall, Happy Happy Scotty Dog Birthday!!! You are the best and I"m glad that you still love your Aunty Jean. I was worried there for a little while. I'll always love you the best. I was just being "polite" with the puppies. They are such babies and need attention. Have Mommy check her email as you have a birthday card coming.

Happy puppy birthday Mr. Doog!

What a fun day you've all had - how funny!

As for the polka-dots on my blog, I had the whole thing done for me by Amber at the shabbee chick - There's a link on the right side where you can go to her site.

She charges next to nothing and is the sweetest girl around! Go check her out if you want a new look for your blog, she does all the hard stuff for us html newbies!

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Uh, will you adopt me? I haven't had a birthday party like that in years. My normally EXTREMELY intelligent hubby asked me just prior to my 40th birthday - "So, would you like a surprise party?" Uh, duh, not now! So, please consider adopting me.

Happy Birthday Mr. Doogs! No way, you are only two? You are still a pup!!!

You know what? You are going to laugh at this. But Winston's birthday is on St. Patrick's Day too! I'm serious! But, GASP, I forgot to celebrate with him! Of course, I was in NYC on his birthday, but still, I forgot it. This is horribly embarrassing. He should be 13 this year. Oh boy, I better go tell him Happy Birthday. I hope he'll forgive me!

And how wonderful that he and Doogs have the SAME BIRTHDAY! No wonder they are such good blogging friends! :-)

xoxoxo

Oh, I am a bad friend! I missed Doogs birthday! I hope he had a splendid little celebration. What a lovely cake he had last year. I love the smiling picture of your son and Doogs. And Jared looks mighty charming in the kilt.

Hugs to you!
