Tommy's Thankful Thursday!


Tommy: Even though #1 is leaving us most of today and all of tomorrow as she is volunteering at an international (horse) driving competition, I have many things to be thankful for. As you know, this past Sunday was my 9th birthday and I got to spend it with my Mummie, Daddy, Aunt, three sisters and niece, as well as my breeders, Ms. A and Mr. R. How lucky can a woofie be?

We got there mid-afternoon on Saturday. I had a bit of a romp with everyone, especially my ball-loving sisters, Sophie and Lydia:


We then went off on our first birthday outing, at a place called Granville which is on the coast. We stopped for some refreshments. I was so pleased to be with Ms. A!


And in the evening, I got to go out to the restaurant with them! They were very welcoming and brought me a bowl of water!


 The next day, we went to an agricultural fair and my Mummie, Minnie, got to come along too! Here we are together at the fair (my Mummie has the green collar):


My Mummie is 13 years young and lovely as ever!


 And on our way back from the fair, we stopped to see an old horsey friend and enjoyed some mother and son exploring:



In the evening, we took my sister Sophie with us for a big romp on the beach:



And we went straight to dinner from there:


On Monday morning, I got in some good playtime with my sisters before we left:


Here are my sisters Sophie and Lydia:


 Remember my niece, little Miss Emily?


And here is my Daddy, Joe. He is 14, he is blind in one eye and his hind legs don't work well, but he still loves his ball!



It was really hard to say goodbye to everyone after the best birthday weekend ever!


But when we got home, we found out we were invited for drinks that evening with our neighbours, including Fernant and Damia! 



I am spending the afternoon today with Fernant, and then all of tomorrow with Damia. It is very hot here at the moment, up to 37C (almost 100F).

Oh, and here is our official birthday portrait, of #1 and me, taken on the beach on our birthday:

I love the portrait of you with #1. It's adorable, Tommy! Wow! I'm impressed with all the outings you participated in. Now that's how you celebrate a birthday, or two. Tommy, you couldn't have asked for a better celebration! It just got better and better. Anypaw, it's great you got to play with your Mom and 2 sisters. Also, I got to see your Dad for the first time. So cool! Well, enjoy your time with Fernant while #1 is gone. I'm still working on getting rid of this pneumonia. It's boring. Everyone have a thankful Thursday!

Aren't you the most beautiful family! We love seeing you all together. You do look life you dad, love. He's a handsome fellow . You know, our beans get bad eyes and bad legs when they get a bit older too and forget about them chasing a ball. Dogs age much more gracefully. Of course we are over the moon seeing little Emily again. She's such a precious darling. Hugs and kisses to you dear Tommy.

Have fun with Fernant and tell #1 to have a safe and good trip.
