VERY SPECIAL Dogs on Thursday


(you really should click on the picture to enlarge and see how he's grown)

It's so hard to believe...but our little Rudy is 1 year old TODAY! I don't know what life was like before he came home to live with us...everyday full of furry joy & kisses.

I spent yesterday baking "The Birthday Cookie"!

All the while, Rudy patiently watched only to discover...

...the joy of licking the spoon!

Ta-Dah!! I freehanded the big cookie aka Rudy's Birthday Cookie, the others I had cutters for and will give them to the "family members" who we visit so often, and his "classmates" tonight! (boy, do I sound like the mother of an elementary student again or what)

An in the usual "family tradition" -- Rudy can now enjoy Sundays right along with us! Yes, this one of his birthday presents!

Rudy's ready for some football! Now, if Notre Dame will just start making doggie jersey's...he can be like his namesake!

Thanks for all those who've continued to come by and read what's going on here at "The Coop"--believe me I'm still knitting I just find that blogging each and every stitch sometimes gets pretty boring, at least for me it does.

I know my blog has evolved and I've lost a lot of readers because of this but you know's MY blog! There's so much more going on in our lives I just feel is much more interesting to blog about.

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!

Happy Birthday, Rudy! You are one year old and one year cuter. As if Rudy could get any cuter. He outdoes everyone else on the cuteness scale. Milo and I send our best wishes for many, many more!!!

Channon said...

Happy birthday, Rudy! Sissy and Gretchen send lots of licks along.

We love your blog. Just do your thing with it.

Happy Birthday times ten from my pack. Your cake looks delicious. It looks like I'm going to have to make a cake for the pups this year when their birthday rolls around.

I love the baby pictures.

Ahhhh what a cutie patootie!! Happy Birthday, Rudy from Kaci and Cubby! You're right -- it's hard to imagine what we did before they came along and can't imagine what it would be like without them. Love all the pictures -- soooo adorable. (Well, not as cute as K&C, of course!) Love your blog! Thanks for steering me here. Have a wonderful celebration! - Kathy

Ah, so you're Chan's friend Rudy! I saw your picture at Chan's place today, too. Happy Birthday, Rudy. Thor had applesauce meringue cake for his birthday, but then he had to share with a lot of humans, too!

You know your Mom has made this past year easier for me because I thought I was the only person out here in blogland that loved their PUP as much as your MOM loves you..
Robin, you've not lost me as a've gained me as a firm family supporter!
