Hi Everyone! It’s meee celebrating my 8th Birthday in a Very Big way!! I got cake and LOTS of presents and lots of love and kisses and hugs til I was ready to vomit but WOW!!! Hoomama and My Bestie Friend REALLY did it THIS time!! WOW!!

This is my cake and these are my presents.

Sonny, my very very best buddy on the whole Earth surprised me with a visit – Hoomama didn’t tell me he was coming, even!!! Then He comes in and says Hoppy Birthday to me and says, “Let’s go!”

“Go?” I thought – where?? “Oh – Noooo! Not to the vet, PLEASE!!!”

“LOOK!!! Its a CONVERTIBLE!! and its a BMW Convertible!!!” and its with my Hoomama and my Bestie and WITHOUT that other dog that lives in MY house!!

Meeee and my Hoomama getting ready for the VERY best day EVER!!

This was the Pawesomest Birthday EVER!! I got to ride in a BMW Convertible, got a visit with my Best Buddy, my favorite food, cake treats, presents and my Hoomama all to myself!! I am pretty sure that somebuddy luffs meeeee!!

    Wanna hear a little “coincidence ” of thing?? I have a dye-dye sweatshirt similar to your hooman’s tee. And another little thing. I’ve been thinking about getting a haircut similar to your hooman’s. I used to sort of wear it that way awhile back. Anyway, still thinking about it, but seeing your hooman is pushing me closer. Wash and go!

  3. Thurston’s story is wonderful and inspiring (building my courage). I read them all back to 2018. My baby Winnie is 5 1/2 have just was diagnosed with the same. Her surgery is next Wednesday here in Michigan. She is my baby and her sister is Willow – bonded since puppy hood. I would love to able to ask you questions about the journey and ideas you can share with me. Winnie is 155lbs and even had a pool like Thurston’s, including the spot (same dry nose issue with the crack – I was stunned when i saw that in your pictures. Check out our babies at saintbernardsquared on instagram. Thank you for helping me during a down time with your stories of courage and success.
