Happy 21st Birthday, Mr. Doogie! Happy St. Patrick's Day, too!!

My sweet little Dughall Piper is THREE (21 years old in "dog years") today! A day to celebrate this wonderful little lad who brings us love and sunshine to each and every day. Oh, I suppose he is now of "legal age" to have a Guinness - his favorite adult beverage (just like Jordan's).
His calm and kind demeanor warms our heart and we are so blessed to have him as part of our family! He is like a little man....just with a lot of fur!
His friends, Baxter and Teresa, just sent some doggie treats the other day (homemade I might add by the talented Teresa herself). Doogs and Fiona are enjoying them....can't you tell?
Even Miss Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum has learned to "sit pretty" for a treat. She is sooo smart, just like her big brother!
Of course, the doggies must have their Scottish attire so that they don't get any pinches today.
Little Maggie Dear gave Duhgall and Fiona some very special presents the other day and one of them are their St. Patrick's Day collars. Doogie is sporting his scarf that we gave to him. Let's just see how long he will want it on - OR how long it takes for Little Miss Fiona to tug on it. Oh, and if you noticed, Doogie's beard is looking a little less full these days as Fiona has a beard fetish. She thinks it is to pull on. Poor lil' Doogie!
Party animal loves to get down and busy with his presents!!!
Where is Doogie?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DUHGALL BOY AND
WISHING YOU ALL A FUN ST. PATRICK'S DAY.
CHEERS! IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE IRISH...YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH!

Those two little dogs are absolutely adorable, Becky!! I can tell your sweet Doogie and Fiona are keeping you busy. Mele is scrunched up under my desk chair. They add so much to our lives.
I loved the Irish music. I wish I had music on my blog..but I will take some time and learn soon. I think of you every single day.

Happy Birthday Mr Doogie! Happy St Patrick'a Day. I'm Australian, but my mother was a Flanagan and her family was Irish (originally), so we do tend to celebrate(any excuse for a party).

They are the sweetest dogs!! I am not a dog person, and they make me want to run out and get one!! And they look so sweet in their Irish attire. I bet it would be easy to make them their own kilt... that would be too funny!! I love your blog and wanted to say: Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

English Cottage in Georgia said...

What a sweet post :-). Even Sweet Cottage Dream puppies are in the "luck of the Irish" spirit.
Hmm, dressed our cottage for St. Paddy's Day, but did not think of having our border collies, join in the Irish spirit.

Teresa said...

What a handsome birthday boy. The other day I was thinking about his birthday being so close because of the bagpipe player he had on I believe his first birthday. I would love to have been there for the celebrating. Miss Fiona is catching on to things quite quickly! Handsome lad, beautiful lass!!

Happy St. Patrick's day from all of us to all of you!!!

Teresa, Jon and Baxter

Tell Mr. Doogie happy birthday from Dublin...Georgia, that is! He's such a wise lad! And Fiona looks so cute with her new collar. We just love St. Patrick's Day around here. May the blessings of St. Patrick surround you and yours...

Sue said...

Happy Birthday Doogs!!! You look so handsome with your green neck scarf...Fiona better watch out for the other girls...Your a real looker.

Miss Jean said...

Oh, my goodness. Our little boy is all grown up! He certainly is the best little man! I wish everyone could meet him in person. I love the teeth showing!!!!

Little Miss Fiona looks just darling in her little collar. I'm so tickled to see her with it on. She's looking up at her big brother with such adoring eyes. She is so cute I could just pinch her cheeks! Do dogs have cheeks?

Not much celebrating at our house as I've had jury duty and have to report back tomorrow. But the corned beef and cabbage are calling from the kitchen.

A Happy St. Patrick's Day and a year of peace and love from our home to yours, dear friends.

Dot said...

Today is my doggie's birthday as well. He is a Boston Terrier and he is 8 today. After yesterday's mud fiasco he is lucky he made it to his birthday today. LOL I have to keep reminding him that he is no longer a puppy.

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Happy birthday to sweet Doogie! Today is Winston's birthday too, we just had his little party. He is 14 (ooo, so I guess that makes him 98? whoa).

Your pups all look so precious, what fun they must have together! I had two little maltese poodles when I was a teenager and they got into so much mischief as puppies! Oh, they were a riot!

Blessings to you, sweetie.
