Two very happy birthdays

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! You are all too kind. Maggie and Mom both had very nice birthday celebrations. We'll be posting pictures of Maggie's birthday cake soon. On Friday night Mom had a disco party so we were sent to the master bathroom. Dad meant well and bought us some turducken flavored wet food as a treat. Well, the juice was good, but the turducken was not so much. As a new rule, Dad -- no food that's not really found in nature, OK?

On Sunday, Josie brought Mom a birthday present. Josie had been out in the garage and caught a lizard (really, a salamander or skink) and brought it into the living room for Mom. Josie set it down, then chased it again. Josie was having so much fun, too. But then Mom realized what she had. Dad just said, "Josie! Come on," and walked with Josie back to the garage, Josie with the lizard in her mouth. Dad tried to get the lizard from her, and it took him a while before she would drop it. Dad evicted us all from the garage, then went to find the lizard, but he was gone. Later, Dad found him outside, but he didn't make it. Poor lizard, but they should all have learned by now, really. The worst part, I don't think Mom really was excited about the gift. (OK, she was excited, but not how Josie thought she would be.)

We don't know why mums don't appreciate their gifts as much as they should.
We don't like any Stinky Goodness that has got turkey in it.

How rude that she didn't get excited about her gift. Humans have no sense of appreciation. After all, it's the thought that counts.

How exciting indeed! I never find fun things like that to give my mom!

We like that turducken canned food!

Angel Sweet Praline told us that you tend to get into trouble when allowed into your garage. MOL

Hmph. I think your human was something of an ingrate to not be over-the-moon thrilled about Josie's gift! MY human would have loved it! She adores lizards and as a kid kept one or two as pets.

Nerissa, turducken is a crazy Thanksgiving concoction which is a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken. It sounds interesting in theory, and looks good when Mom watches Martha Stewart make it, but failed in execution as Stinky Goodness.

What an adventure!
Every mom wants her own lizard for a birthday gift.
Happy birthday again, Maggie!

We remember when you were so teeny tiny!!!!
