** Note from Huskee: The text in red below are added by yours truly without approval from the mom, but hey, this is MY blog, so I can do anything I want.. heehee)


Exactly a year ago today (where lightning strike and strong winds howl), a (monster) little pup was born in some part of Victoria, Australia. The (scary) pup came to live with our (used to be peaceful) family on 3rd August 2008. Today marks her 1st Barkday and throughout the past few (traumatic) months, she's grown into a sweet (**insert gagging sound**) and very intelligent doggie (under her brother's superb guidance no less), who loves to be around people and is very generous with her affection and kisses (especially when you are sound asleep).

She's brought a lot of joy and laughter (don't forget to add damaged furniture and clothing) into the family, and never fails to cheer us up with her antics (yes indeed, like the time she ATE my squeaky rubber ball and regurgitated it, or how abt the time she pooped on the new white couch?). She's also become an integral part of our family (ok I can accept that, but don't forget although I am half her weight/ size, I am still the one who calls the shots around here).

To our special Princess (**more gagging sound**), HAPPY 1st BARKDAY. May you lead a long, happy and healthy life.


Mom ordered a doggie cake and some snacks from a doggie bakery. We will only celebrate Hershey's barkday tonight when dad comes home from work. We will post the pics of the cake and pressies she's received in our next post. Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!

Hershey, no wonder when we talk about Friday April 24th, it does sound familiar to me but we couldn't relate it with any memories or occasions!
Our bad, our apology!
We don't forget you and Huskee and your mom, we already got your addie down!
Hershey, it's so interesting when you read between the lines, hehe.
Happy very special first barkday, Hershey girl!

Huskee and Barkday Girl,
I come back to thank you for responding to my begging about sending healing power to baby Axl. Your visit, support and keeping your paws crossed for baby Axl means a lot to me, buddy! He's getting better now, the latest news I heard!
Love you
