Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We have a bone to pick with our mom. Do you know what day today is? Well if you keep up with the Blogville birthdays you will know that today is Walter’s birthday.

I’m 4 years old today!

That’s not all that is special about today. Do you know what else happened 4 years ago today besides Walter being born? Maybe this will jog your memories (for those that knew us then).

This was taken my first days in my forever home.

Look at me now!

If you guessed that it’s Millie’s Gotcha Day you would be right. Once on this day mom baked us a cake to celebrate.

Mmmm...that smells great! Are we done with the pictures now?

This was a tasty blast from the past.

This time our mom says she can’t bake anything for us and she is claiming that it’s because her oven is broken! We’ll let her explain.

Hi everyone. It’s Cindy here. Back in the beginning of August our oven went dark.

Notice no clock showing on the oven.

We tried to get it repaired but there are no parts available for a 21 year old oven. When we went to buy one the sales person suggested we have an installer come first to make sure we were ordering the right size oven. Well since we have our cook top installed just above our oven it would have been next to impossible to find an oven that would fit under a 21 year old cook top. The only solution was to replace both of them. I won’t go into the boring details but there were delays in securing the cook top and as of now we have the new oven in our garage…

New oven...still in the box.

New oven…still in the box.

…and it will finally get installed this coming Thursday (along with the new cook top)! Mom Cindy out!

Millie Walter - Birthday Party Hats

Let’s celebrate!

Well we guess we will just have to find some other way to celebrate today but we hope our mom makes us a cake for her first time baking with the new oven.

We think since there isn’t going to be a cake today we should at least get extra treats.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie here.

Millie - head shot

Do you know what day it is? Let me give you a hint.

puppy birthday cake 2

That’s right…it’s my birthday! Today I turn 3 years old. My pawrents can’t believe I can be 3 already. I hope mom bakes me a cake like the one above. I might even be nice and share some with Walter too.

Check out the cute e-card I got from my VET!

Millie - hanging out under tree

The weather is a little nicer today (we had record temps of 90º F during the past few days) so I expect to be hanging out in the yard and snoopervising my dad’s yard work.

Since this is supposed to be Mischief Monday mom found this video of me from the first day I came to my forever home. It is cell phone video and until recently she couldn’t get it to play right side up. The quality isn’t as good as our regular videos and there are some glitches but I think you will enjoy it.

If you can’t see the video or want to see a larger version you can go here to see it.

As you could see I was very fierce and ready to take on anyone who was in my yard even if they didn’t move. You can’t see what I’m barking at very well so here is a picture of it from last year in the garden.

It’s in a new location now and I don’t even notice it any more. Doesn’t that sculpture look scary to you?

Well I hope you all have as nice a day as I’m having.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Hi everyone it’s Millie here. First I want to thank everyone for the fantastic birthday wishes. I’m also thrilled to have gotten three proposals for date day and have accepted the offer from Tommy. Sorry Otto and Arty maybe next event we can get together. I’m very excited to be going on a date with Tommy since he lives in France which we all know is the best place to be a dog.

Today Oz the Terrier is hosting a Limerick Day Contest so we thought we would give it a try. It fits perfectly with our Mischief Monday theme too.

Around our yard we have lots of chipmunks. When we run out to the yard we make a bee line where they usually hang out but have not been able to catch one yet. They are very fast and can run and hide in small holes (like our drain pipe).

I, Millie am always on watch for them when I’m inside the house. They do tease me a lot. Here is a video of me watching one. He is lucky that I’m inside the house or he would be toast.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

Now here is my limerick inspired by that video.

There once was a dog named Millie
Who thought chipmunks were oh so silly
When they scurried about
It made Millie shout
And jump around like a filly

Keeping track of that Chippie is exhausting!

Chippie watching can be very tiring. I’m glad our windows go down low and have a nice ledge to rest my head on. One of these days that chipmunks luck is bound to run out don’t you think?

Hi everyone it’s Millie here. I know that here in the United States we are celebrating Mother’s Day and of course I wish my mom and all the mom’s out there (whether your babies have two legs or four) a very Happy Mother’s Day but today is special for another reason. It’s my 2nd Birthday!

Millie - lounging in shade 2

I don’t have a lot of things planned for today other than hanging out in the yard and watching daddy work on the garden. I expect that Walter and I will do some more of this:

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

Of course I always kick his butt and don’t let him up until he yells “Uncle!” We have so much fun wrestling.

DateDay3

I do have a birthday wish that maybe one of you can help me out with. Walter has a date set up with his sweet girl Tui for Sarge’s Date Day event but so far I have not found a suitor. It seems that the boys of Blogville either already have a steady girl or are too shy to ask. I know I can be a bit rough on Walter when we wrestle but I promise to be a perfect lady on my date. Now I’m not really too shy to ask either and I do have my eye on a couple of nice boys out there but I wouldn’t want them to think I was to forward. I do have a soft spot in my heart for German Shepherd types since my foster home was full of them but I’m willing to accept anyone brave enough willing to join me on a fun day of getting to know each other.

I'm wishing for a date

There is no long term commitment involved with a date, just a fun time with a good friend. So how about it boys of Blogville? How about making this birthday girl extra happy today?

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here to tell you about the fantastic cake our mom made for us for our big celebration.

Millie Walter - celebration cake

Okay it might not be a fancy as the one we pictured on our celebration day post, but we think our mom did a pretty good job. She said the squirty green icing was not very easy to control, but you can still read it just fine. She found the recipe online at allrecipes.com and added some canned cream cheese frosting. Since she put frosting on it mom and dad decided it would be best if we had out pieces outside so we didn’t make too much mess.

Mmmm...that smells great! Are we done with the pictures now?

We each got our own plate with a small piece on it (stingy pawrents!).

Millie Walter - eating cake

I, Walter, had my piece gobbled up in no time.

Nom, nom, nom!

Nom, nom, nom!

Whereas I, Millie, was more cautious about eating it and needed a little help.

Nom, nom, nom!

Nom, nom, nom!

While Millie was taking her time eating her piece of cake I had to just watch. It is torture watching Millie eat…she is sooooo slow!

Thanks for holding the plate dad.

Dad helped me out a bit too and held the plate so I could be sure to get every molecule of frosting.

Gobble, gobble...this is good.

Gobble, gobble…this is good.

After being so dainty with my cake at first I decided it was good enough to just snarf it down in one gulp. We are very happy that mom made us this great cake and we even got more for the next few days until it was gone. We are joining Sugar’s Tasty Tuesday blog hop today.

By the way all the ingredients in the cake are human edible too and our dad even tried a piece. His only complaint was that it was a bit dry. If it weren’t for the frosting he said he couldn’t have gotten it down.

Hi Everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here together to start our celebration! First up mom thinks you all should click on this video and let it play in the background to get you in the mood to party!

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

Okay, now that you have the music going let’s start the festivities.

Millie in party hat - Happy Gotcha Day

It’s hard for me and my pawrents to believe that one year ago today I came to live with them. The year has just flown by. Let’s take a quick walk down memory lane.

Foster Parents Michael & Darcy watch as Charlie has Millie sit for a treat.

Foster Parents Michael & Darcy watch as Charlie has Millie sit for a treat.

I had no idea that day, one year ago, when my foster pawrents brought me to mommy and daddy’s house that they were going to leave me there. I was a little upset at first when they left, but daddy played with me a little, I took a nap and when I woke up I knew I was home and didn’t worry about where Darcy and Michael went. I still love to see my foster pawrents and get pretty crazy when I visit with them. I will never forget what a great time I had at their home.

So much has happened over the past year. I made some new friends, met a fellow blogger and learned that grandpawrents give good scritches. One of my favorite things was learning about snow and how much fun it is to play in.

I love to dig in the snow!

Of course there was a bit of mischief along the way too. Do you remember what happened to the  “The Last of the Mohicans”

I swear I heard squirrels in here

Of course my life changed a lot about half way through my first year here when Walter joined us. I knew from the minute I first met Walter that we would be the best of friends forever.

As all of our followers know we play hard and sleep hard. I would have to say that Walter is one of the best things that happened around here this past year. He really is a great brother and always so much fun to play with, wrestle with and chase. On that note I will turn the blog over to him because today Walter becomes a real big boy!

walter - sitting with party hat - happy birthday

Woo Hoo! I can’t believe I’m a big boy now. I have to give a shout out to my brother Brodie (if that is still his name) and wish him a happy birthday too. We had a rough start until we were rescued by Big Dogs Big Hearts, but I’m glad I had him by my side through that ordeal. I sure do miss him and hope we can see each other sometime and I hope he is as happy as I am in my forever home.

puppy birthday cake 2Mom was baking all day yesterday and she said there would be a special cake for Millie and I to share (I don’t think it really looks like the one in the picture though). Grab a plate and enjoy some of our cake and make sure to grab a drink too. We have all kinds of soft drinks and some great New York State apple cider. Mom says we are still too young for any of the harder stuff, but I bet some of our furends might have a flask or two with them {{wink, wink}}.

I might have had a rough start in life, but since I came to my forever home life could not be better.

I love playing with water!

I love playing with water!

I learned how much fun playing in water could be although I still haven’t been swimming yet. I will put that on my list for this next year. Of course I have had a great time getting to know my sister and having the time of my life playing with her.

Sticking together

Sticking together

All in all I could not be a happier boy. Millie and I want to thank Big Dogs Big Hearts for not only bringing us to our pawrents, but for bringing us together too. We are lucky pups to have the pawrents we do (although some might say they are lucky to have us) and we also want to thank all our friends in Blogville for joining in our big Celebration Day! Let the party begin!
