When Buddy came to live with us some 13 months back, I wasn’t very happy. I had been the sole princess of all I could survey for so long…
But today, I know he knows that I think he is my most exciting playmate, my forever friend and the BESTEST brother a girl can ever ask for.

And I want to Wish my dear brother a VERY VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Buddy, We all love you heaps. And we feel blessed to have you in our lives.

We were lucky to get this cute picture of him as a tiny little puppy from his earlier family. Oh! Wasn’t he just too adorable?

Here he is today, all grown up and handsome and so adorable still.
Can you imagine, he turned five yesterday ? He neither looks nor behaves his age though!

There was no birthday cake. If you remember, his tummy wasn’t very good till a week back and we decided it would be prudent to let him be on the ‘careful’ diet he is on.
The cake has been postponed, not cancelled, Buddy. Mummy’s promise!

We both got vanilla ice-cream and cream-milk (Instead of the low calorie, low fat milk Mummy usually gets!).
In the evening, we started off in search of a quiet and peaceful place fit for a special birthday walk.
After a long drive, we found this little rocky hill with just a few scattered groups of people enjoying their own private picnic. They seemed totally disinterested in us which suited us just fine. (Though Mummy always wonders how anyone can not want to come talk to a lovely Labradudette and a Handsome Labradude!!)

We had a lovely time exploring the new place and as dusk set in, we walked into the sunset and bid the birthday-sun goodbye for yet another year.

Back home, there was Ginger-Garlic Chicken for dinner. After a hearty meal Buddy went off to sleep, making sure to confiscate the book mummy is reading so she won’t shirk from typing this birthday post for him!
(She is still late though. This was supposed to be published yesterday night, on his birthday. But we guess we can excuse her. She had a lot to do)

Buddy’s Birthday Wish:
To go visit a beautiful quiet beach, splash in the waves, listen to the wind sing, watch a sunset and leave some paw-prints for someone to remember him by.

Buddy’s Birthday Resolution:
To donate to the local Animal Shelter

Mummy has promised to help him keep his resolution.
It will be easier than to fulfil his wish. The nicest and nearest beach is about 750 kilometers away. But Mummy has promised we will make it happen too.

May all your dreams come true.

Happy Birthday Buddy! This is quite the month for birthdays for some of our very best furiends. September must have been a great month for doggies. I think the vanilla ice cream was a good choice.

Ginger, I know just what you mean about the brother thing. I was kind of back and forth about the whole thing at first, but now he's very important to me.

lotsa licks, Lola

your birthday walkie looked so very beautimous, and the ice cream and ginger chicken sounded yummy yummers!
make sure you get your tummy back to 100% really quick like so you can remind your mama about the birthday cake she owes you. teehee! oh, and btw, my house is pretty close to the beach, so you can come visit me and asa any time you want, and we can go play in the ocean and do zoomies in the sand!! :)
