Happy Birthday to Me!

Hi All you Pups and Kitties!

I think I missed my Birthday  yesterday!  How could that have happened? 

I asked my Mom, how did you happen to forget about my Birthday and she said Oh No, how did we let that go past?  So she promised me that tomorrow we would go shopping for some doughnut holes with frosteen (my favorite sweet treet) and a present.  She even sang the Birthday Song for me!  We aren't much for big parties but we do like to remember the special day I came on.  Oh, its my Gotcha Day too.  Maybe I will get two presents!

I told her, we just have to be doing things a little better, like remembering special days.  She said she would do her furry best!

I am 5 years old on this birthday.  I came here from the Slammer in 2008 when I was just 2 years old.  I am a way better dog than I was in those days too.  I have learned to be a good walker, and be good to Zkhat, and I love my Mom best of all.

This is what I looked like when I came:

You know now I look very much prettier, don't you think?

So, there we have talked about my birthday day and I am glad somebody remembered! (me)

Love and hugs to all the pups who are waiting for their rescue homes, and for the sick pups and kitties who need help.

Stella, Jo and Zkhat

Maxmom said...

Hi there Stella,
I'm just popping by to see how you are doing and so glad to discover that it happens to be a celebratory time for you.
Happy birthday for yesterday! You really do look much different from those first days...so much water under the bridge. I'll never forget what you did for Maxdog...that first 'shout-out'...)
Enjoy your day and send lotsaluv to that momma of yours,

Happy (yesterday's) Birthday Stella.

I too live with a human who is not too hot on celebrating special days. And really it is better that she never sings any song at all...

Gail says what's important is how you get treated on 365 days of the year. And judging by those 'before' and 'after' photos, you truly landed on your paws when you came to live with Jo.

Random Felines said...

Happy Birfday and Gotcha Day Stella!!!! We are so glad you found such a wonderful family.

Martha said...

Happy Birthday Stella and Happy Gotcha Day too.
You looked very pretty back then but your are right, you have blossomed!
Like us you struggle with a human who forgets things like birthdays but they don't forget to love us and that is the best present of all!
Having said that enjoy your doughnut holes - wish we could come celebrate with you.
Much love beautiful girl on your special day............even if we, like your human are late!!!

Happy Birthday and Gotcha Day Stella!!!

Tober the Cat said...

Happy Birthday, Stella, and Happy Gotcha Day, too!

You look very pretty now, but you were cute three years ago, too.

I'm curious, were you rotten to my girl Ali when you were first Gotcha'd? I don't know much about woofies, being an only Library Cat and all.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

oh Stella! i always love and APPRCIATE your comments but that last one about my brother and baby Oliver brought a tear to my eye. You are right on--what a place for a baby to spend his childhood and grow up amoung such unspoiled beauty. I am sure my brother will be so happy to read about that captured moment --and that you saw it too!

Stella you gorgeous girl we are sorry we missed your birthday. Ty will sing to you now.
With his best loudest voice you should hear him even over the big pond.
We just watched John toss his Lotto ticket in the bin so I guess we did not win.
If we do we will treat you and your mum to a nice holiday.
Licks Bobby.
