A Doggy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Archie.


Archie's 9 today, I don't know where those years have gone, it only seems two minutes since he was a puppy, now he's showing signs of age. He likes nothing better than having a lovely snooze. The photo above was taken last night, relaxing on his cushion.

He usually get spoilt on his birthday, and today's no exception, but Mick booked him in at the groomers for this afternoon without realising it was his birthday, he won't like that one little bit. Never mind, he'll come home looking dapper and with a much shorter coat, which he'll like, and I'm sure he'll get lots of treats to compensate.

This little boy dog is the light of my life.

    1. Ha ha, I know, naming their baby after my doggy. He still looks good for his age but he's slowing down now.

    1. He's lapping up all the attention today. He won't be quite so pleased when we get to the groomer's though.

  5. Happy birthday Archie & I know you are a gorgeous boy. It was you I recognised that day at Bolton Abbey as you hopped out of the car before your Mum (giggle). Take care Jo & huggles from Oz.

  6. He is a gorgeous boy, my Ben spends more time sleeping than awake but then I have had him since 2004 and have no idea how old he was then.

    1. Goodness, Ben's knocking on then now. They do sleep much more as they get older, I'm sure Herbie keeps him on his toes though.

    1. We got a new suite not long ago, I wanted to throw all the old cushions but Archie wouldn't let this one go, it's his favourite.

  17. Our fur babies have this amazing part of our hearts. They just don't live long enough. I wish your Archie many many more fun years

    1. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Cavaliers are known for their short life span but Archie's doing well at the moment even though he does have heart problems.

    1. I was quick to tell him as soon as it was announced, I think he was more interested in where his next meal was coming from though.

    1. We made sure that Archie was a very pampered doggy indeed on his birthday, he's still chomping his way through his gifts.

  25. Many happy returns to Archie! The years really fly by don't they? It's hard to believe that we'd had our precious little Ginger for 6 years and Harlow for 5 years before her. We're still undecided about another fur baby just yet, but the house is so sad and empty without our little girl and we miss her terribly. Best, Jane x

    1. It's hard to believe that he's now nine, the years certainly do fly by. Awww, I can imagine how your house feels without Ginger, it's so empty when you're used to having a dog or a cat there because even though they don't talk, they're still such good company and we love them so much. It's very hard when anything happens to them.
