I AM SEVEN NOW!!!!! Hoppy Birthday MEEEE!

This is my birthday celebration! Stickers for my wall “BE MORE DOG”  it says but I AM already, then meee, my cake that Hoomama made me and my Birthday Dinner from Portillo’s that mom had to FEED me bite by bite so I wouldn’t gulp it down
What I do to torture my older brother. I got him good!!

Hello Everyone it’s meeee and I MADE IT to 7 years old!!!!! HOPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEE!! My Hoomama is doing the Hoppy Dance and she is soooo grateful to The Lord, to University of Wisconsin, to the Tripawds Community, to EVERYBODY! She is so annoying!

Its sooo embarrassing when she goes around telling everyone what a wonderful dog I am and how she is sooo blessed to have me in her life. For Heaven’s sake, where else would I possible go to get treated like she treats me?!!

8/31 was my 7th Birthday and Hoomama did what she does best. Got me treats!! I got stickers for my car. I have 3 huge 10 inch paws on EACH SIDE of my car and she got me stickers for my wall so I have 3 paws over my futon AND a 2 foot long DOG BONE STICKER that says, “Be More Dog” on it! She had that made special for meeee. I don’t know why… I think I am plenty more dog already!!! LOL! WOOF! WOOF!

Rene a Tripawd made mom a beautiful pendant and tags for me and my Big Brother, Raffie. Mom said to say this stuff can be ordered from Rene’s Etsy Shop (she said the address is somewhere on the Tripawds site) Hoomama is not real good with posting links. Best of all, she got me the MOST IMPORTANT presents of all – CAKE AND BLUE BUNNY ICE CREAM!!!! YIPEEEE! I was so hoppy that I slimed my big brother (I do that a lot). It was a real good day. I got dinner from Portillos too! Mom had to give it to me a bite at a time to keep me from gulping it down too fast… I have trouble controlling that, you know… sometimes I eat so fast I forget to chew and then I get sick and make a mess for Hoomama to clean up – woof! woof! Ha Ha Ha.

Guess what?? I got up this morning and was greeted by another plate of cake and more BLUE BUNNY ice cream – for breakfast! I was hopping all around I was so excited! I just couldn’t believe it! That Blue Bunny is the BEST!

We go back to UW for my recheck on October 9, so please, everyone continue to pray for good results. Hoomama is already planning my celebration for Gotcha Day #7 (Nov. 1 for me). It’s real nice that she does this but honestly I am looking for a little more variety in these celebrations. I think its time we take that trip to Hawaii so I can hop around in the ocean… or maybe it’s time for me to get a LITTLE brother… Hoomama has been showing me pictures of French Bulldogs. I do NOT think they look like they are big enough to “BE MORE DOG”. They are cute but I do not want one.

Have a great Labor Day everyone! I will post more when when I have news! WOOF! WOOF!

  1. Super super hoppy day!!! WHEEEE! Thurston you are lucky Number Seven Years Young and we are celebrating with you my friend! I can hear the rockin’ pawty music all the way out to the west coast, the Tripawds Nation is dancing and hoppin and jumpin for joy! YIPEEE!!!

    Your momma is so good to you. We are so glad she is telling the world about how pawesome you are ’cause more peeps need to hear it. Can you believe there are some who don’t think a big boy like you can do good on three? It’s TRUE! So your momma is changing that, and we are furever grateful!

    Raffie is a saint! OMG that is the funniest photo EVER! Poor guy!


    Your Hoomoma aure jnows jow ro throw a great birthday pawty celebration! Cake, hand fed dinner, BLUE BUNNY ICE CREAM AND MORE BLUE BUNNY ICE CREAM!!!
    And I have no doubt your brother letting you slime him was the best present of all! He did “let” you, right?? I mean, you didn’t just sneak up on him and do the Saint Bernard slim shake all over him…right??
    And now we have another celebration coming up with Gotcha’ Day. That means more Vlue Bunny Ice Cream and more slime slinging!!! Hawaii has Blue Bunny Ice Cream, right?? I dont thimk rhey hace French Bull Dogs n Hawaii, so your safe. I mean, otherwise they would be called Hawaiian Bull Dogs, right? Hmmmm….it would be fun to have another pupper to slime though😉

    You are a very loved boy Thurston. But you already know that❤ And everyone here is a member of the Turston Fan Cliub 😎
    Oh, and love rhe way uour hoomans has decorated your car!
