GOODBYE Puppyhood Pawty!

Oh I is so excited! Today is my second birfday! Us giant doggies take a longer time to grow up, so we are technically puppies until 2. So now that I am 2, I is officially an adult dog. Of course this doesn't mean I'm going to behave all the time, but my puppy brain is basically gone. And, I'm pretty much done growing now, whew! Anyway, enough abouts me ---Are you all ready to get this party started?

The Booker Man got the earliest start ever.. His Mom drove forever to get to Maine so he was the first to arrive:
Lucille showed up next, and she swam the whole way here from Italy! Can you believe it? It's got to have something to do with those big beautiful Dane feet.

The next to arrive was Frankie, he was all dressed up. I guess he hasn't learned that once you gets married you can lets yourself go and you don't have to worry about impressing girls anymore.
Of course he brought his wifeys Penny & Ruby. He suckered them in dressing up too. But he should be careful, they steal his spotlight.
Maggie-Mae arrived from New York and was all smiles as usual.

I thinks it may have had something with Corbin being there too. I think she's smitten.
Zona was the next to arrive and we all started talking about what we wanted to do while we waited for the others.
Of course Zona was eyeballing the DVDs and suggested we watch FRIENDS.
Some more friends showed up while we watched tv.....
But after Khyra, Harley, and Merdie showed up wif all that floof... Khyra had the greatest idea!
We decided to play a game of pin the tail on the KITTEH! Kitty sister Ellie didn't really enjoy it.
But it really got Levi, Hunter and Lola laughing. Hunter was watching from outside to get a better view.
Levi made sure to join him.
Lola was laughing hysterically from a comfortable position inside.
My princess Bella was spending time relaxing.....
While I got to work on making the cake.

We were all sitting around listening to Puddles tell a story that we all knew was completely false... but were playing along with it anyway... when...

Mayzie started to wonder what happened to Frankie....
Oskar volunteered to look for him, but couldn't find him anywhere.
He couldn't be found by Stanzie... (who might have had better luck if he actually left the porch to look)
Wyatt had the idea that Frankie might have been looking for bunnies in the shrubs....

We even had the golden sisters out looking for him.
Ava said she couldn't find him anywhere, she even checked out our garden to make sure he wasn't trying to kill any more moles.
Sammie came back and to our surprise she didn't find Frankie..... instead she found....
Yeah you guessed it..... Frankie's "Cousin" Francine...
Funny how Frankie and Francine are never in the same room at the same time, huh?
Anyway Minnie Moo and Lincoln were getting hungry and so were the rest of us!!!
Stumpy made the decision that it was time for some cake.
So we all put on our party hats and Nova and Teagan starting singing Happy Birfday!
Murphy Dog was singing bass..... and eyeballing my cake......
While Norwood was singing tenor (sorry dude).

We all had yummy cake and ice cream!
Fiona and Abby had made the ice cream from all their snow.
We enjoyed the rest of the pawty Dancing.
Dancing isn't lead by anyone other that the talented Honey!
Darwin kept doing all kinds of Hula dancing.... Murphy wouldn't stop watching her sway those Dane hips..... BOL!
It was so much fun having my friends come to visit me for my Goodbye Puppyhood Pawty! Thank you all for coming!!
We made sure we all got together for a Big Pawty Picture before everyone had to leave!

Booker, Lucille, Frankie, Penny, Ruby, Maggie Mae, Corbin, Zona, Khyra, Harley, Honey, Darwin, Merdie, Hunter, Lola, Levi, Bella, Puddles, Mayzie, Oskar, Stanzie, Wyatt, Ava, Sammie, Minnie Moo, Lincoln, Stumpy, Nova, Teagan, Murphy, Norwood, Fiona, Abby, and Tucker too!
Thank you all for helping me celebrate my second birfday! Goodbye Puppyhood!
