Chance: Forgotten Birthday

HELLO it is I the handsome blogging Border Collie..whose birthday was totally forgotten.

On Tuesday October 25 I was seven years old.  No celebration..no atta boys.  Finally on Friday ( three count them three days late) Far Side said “I think one of these days it is the boys birthday!”  ( The boy..meaning me..as I am the only boy they have ..other than the Grand boys.)

She checked my record..and sure enough my big day was history.  They forgot. What happened that was so important?  Nothing..they are G.E.T.T.I.N.G. O.L.D.

So what happened on my birthday?  We played ball..we play ball everyday..I got treats..I get treats everyday..we walked to the mail box..of course we do that everyday too..except Sunday ( I think that the mail should go seven days a week).  So I guess nothing special happened..except I turned 7:(IMG_7303

  13. Chance, my darling doggie......you have no idea how beloved you are by so many people who can only send you "virtual" treats.

    It is probably just as well......if they were real you would have to be put on a diet.

    Amazing, really, that I could be so in love with a dog thousands of miles away who will never know I love him.........unless, of course, Far Side gives him a treat for me and tells him about me.

  14. Poor Chance. I say milk it for all it is worth, and get new toys and treats in abundance.

  17. Dog birthdays are most important. After all one dog year is many more than a people year. Happy birthday Chance.

  19. Oh you cutie pie! Happy happy birthday! Hope Far Side and Guy have made up for forgetting your birthday! ;-)

  20. Chance! You and Dirt have the same birthdate! And guess what?, his children forgot to call him and wish him happy birthday too. Well one did, but only because she called to talk to her sister and her sister reminded her!

    Poor Dirt, he didn't do anything special or get anything for his birthday either. I did get him a card, but I sent it to work with him unsigned, I was late getting up but I new his fellow workers would like the sentiment expressed in the card - getting old and getting deaf.

    I'll try and remember to remind Far Side next year for you.

  21. .....and here I come...late to your forgotten party!!!

    Chance, it seems a thought your celebrated each and every day 'round those parts. Heck, Pepper Nipper doesn't even get a daily 'treat'!!!

    Happy number seven Chance!!!

  23. Happy birthday, Chance. You have done a good job of taking care of those two people. They just need to work on not taking you for granted so much. I do know that you act like everyday is your birthday. So enjoy your great day, again today.
