Tom: Yes, today is THE DAY! I am now TWO years old! I was bon to Minnie and Joe on August 21, 2007, in a small village in Normandy, one of a litter of seven. When #1 came to visit us to make her choice, my breeders said to her that I was the sweetest, gentlest and kindest puppy in the litter! So, instead of picking a little girl as she had intended to do, she picked ME!

Here is birthday portrait for you:

And you can see that from these pictures taken this morning that my form is outstanding!

And of course, a FLYING EARS shot!

#1 says she has a lot of gifts for me, but we haven't opened them yet (it's her birthday too, you know, so she has to open her gifts as well!) so, in the meantime, I have been playing with one she brought me back from Canada:

I have been cuddling with my sisters this morning, and our friend, Ms. L is staying with us for a few days, so I am getting even more spoiled than usual. And guess what? The kittens have come over to celebrate with us too! We are having a party tomorrow!

PS: I also wanted to share with you a design from our friend Marlene, over at 9 and Chani's blog. It is based on me! Don't you think it looks just great?

Happy Birthday, Tommy! You sure look like the last 2 years have been sweet, fun and gleeful...what a beautiful smile you have in your birthday portrait.

Maybe you can get those ears to fly you over to Martha's Vineyard and we can play and chase things together!

I hope the both of you have fun and get lots of neat presents on your special day. I really like that design inspired by Tom. Spaniels make the best models.

Happy birthday to you, Tommy! You are a most handsome 2 year old!

quiltcat said...

Hi Tommy. Happy Birthday to you! Those are wonderful wonderful pictures of you being athletic and adorable. The breeders certainly were right when they noticed how sweet and gentle you are...those kitty girls could never have a nicer big brother. Do you think #1 could be talked into posting a couple of baby pictures of you? And #1, a very happy birthday to you! Hope you have a great time with your friends and the sweet furry kids.
