Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Today is my Grandpa's Birthday. He is 93 in Hooman years. I can't even count
that high in Dog Years!

And sometime between when I went to bed last night and when I got up this morning, Miss Lindy-Loo and Swede William had their babies. There are four of them, two boys and two girls. And word is that Willy is pretty proud of himself, but we think Miss Liny Loo deserves most of the credit!

And this is the song my muzzer was singing before I came to live with her:

I want a wire fox terrier for Christmas
Only a wire fox terrier will do
Don't want a pug, no tiny poodle toy
I want a wire fox terrier to play with and enjoy

I want a wire fox terrier for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door,that's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprisewhen I open up my eyes
to see a wire fox terrier standing there

I want a wire fox terrier for Christmas
Only a wire fox terrier will do
No dachshunds, no boxers or spaniels
only like wire fox terriers
And they will like me too

I can see me now on Christmas morning,creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprisewhen I open up my eyes to see a wire fox terrier standing there
I want a wire fox terrier for Christmas
Only a wire fox terrier will do

Wow! Your poor mom. What did she do without you? Happy Birthday to Grandpa! That sure is a lot of years. I bet he knows many interesting things. Was he in black and white when he was a kid?

Happy Birthday to your Grandpa - we hope he had a wonderful day!!!

Now about that song - we think our Dad needs to sing it to our mom with a slight change of words - maybe that will convince her to change her mind.

Happy Birthday to your Grandpaw!!! We're pretty smart, but we can't count that high in dog years either.

As for the song -- our mom would have sung it if she knew how much fun we would be -- but she didn't -- so for her, we irresistible WFTs were a total surprise.

We guess she could change the words to be "I'm so glad I have two wire fox terriers, for Christmas and every day of the year..."

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

WOW Gussie, your grandpa is like 13.5 in doggie years!!!! Wishing him a very Happy Birfday and many many more to come!!!

WE love Muzzer's christmas song. Mum heard all about you guys, how you got there when she visited Jake and Just Harry. She thinks you are a very lucky pup and Muzzer is a very lucky hooman too.

Wishing you all the happiness in these howlidays! Thank you for all the encouraging words you and Muzzer have left for us, we really appreciate it!!

Love nibbles,

Gussie...

(Lacie speaks in a hushed tone, but her voice is so screechie it probably doesn't matter...) Isn't Teka still dating Swede William? And um well oh dear...how is she taking it? Oh my...I do have an excellent Cheer Her Up Smoothie line that may be helpful here...

And what about a LAKELAND for Christmas???

Huh???

Kisses,
