Happy 6th Birthday Dakota! Thankful Thursday

Dear Dakota,

I remember the day you came to live with us invaded my space, as if it were yesterday.

Prior to your arrival, I knew something was up because Mom and Dad came home with this ridiculous stuffed Sheltie. For weeks, Mom got on all fours with that dog, that was a sight to see let me tell ya! and proceeded to chase me with it, she even BARKED. And to think she hasn't been locked up yet. I guess this was done to prepare me for the inevitable. YOUR ARRIVAL

Mom even put stinky perfume on herself, Dad, me and YOU so that when she brought you home we would SMELL alike. I thought she was certifiable when she did it, but guess what? It WORKED!

Even though you are two months older than me, I have to give you credit. You learned super fast just WHO is the BOSS around here!

I hissed at you once and ONLY once and you got the message! I guess your breed IS rather intelligent after all.

Anyway, I'm not gonna get all mushy and gushy but I have to say that I am awfully glad that you were born.



Because of you:
1) I get fed whenever you go through ridiculous gesticulations and auditory assaults to get a bone or a treat, or whatever else it is that you act as if you will die without.  Calm down my furiend, be more like ME. Your over exuberance and vocalizations are annoying.

2) I have company whenever Mom and Dad decide to leave abandon us.



3) I have someone to sleep near every night. Mom still can't figure out why I prefer sleeping by YOU instead of by her. Have you heard her snoring lately?

4) I have someone to play with, control, annoy, tease and completely send over the edge whenever I feel moved to do so.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAKOTA!
I wouldn't trade you for any cat toy in the world!
Love, Cody

Oh.. I nearly forgot to mention that Dakota has a blog too. Why not stop by and wish him a Happy Birthday? Don't tell him that I sent ya!

  1. Happy Birthday, Dakota!!! We hope you have a PURRfect bday celebration! ...even though you're a DOG. (hehe...saw that one coming, didn't you!)

    So Cody, about this cat toy trade-in thing you speak of. Can I trade Waffles Too in for a toy? Even an old, ratty, used toy is fine.
