What i did on my birthday. 
by Jack 

I was all excited because I knew I was getting something special.

The tall guy always hides his hands behind his back when he's trying to hide something from me.

First he gave me a oatmeal box.
I was hoping that it would contain jewelry or an Apple watch,
but it was just a box.
But that's ok, because I got to tear it apart,
which is really fun.

Then he gave me my actual presents.  Please ignore the fact that they were wrapped in Christmas paper, because evidently I'm not good enough to get actual birthday paper and we have to just go with whatever the tall guy can find in the closet.
I'm lucky it wasn't wrapped in toilet paper.

FINALLY, I got to play with my new toys
(which I have not even destroyed yet!)

I got an elephants made out of rope
and another toy that I can pull apart
but it can be put back together.
(Please don't tell Madi, but I think it's supposed to be a cat.
We'll just pretend that it's a Frisbee with legs and a tail instead.) 
 The talll guy really likes the Frisbee leg-tail toy,
because when I pull it apart,
he can put it back together again.
He said it's stuck together with something called
I do not know what is VELCRO,
but evidently it's what keeps your legs and tail attached to your body.

So, all in all, I had a pretty good birthday.
 And here's hoping your VELCRO doesn't come loose
and cause you to lose your tail!


  1. Wow! That box sure looks tasty ! Fantastical presents !

    Petite-Chose and Inca (two yellow girl Labs)

  7. Ohhhhhh a Quaker Oats box...to start the day off healthy.
    Mom often wraps pressies in the Sunday comic strips.
    Mom was not going to tell me you got a cat to devour. I SAW it with my own kitty eyes now I cannot un-see....furever etched in my eyes
    Hugs madi your bfff

  8. Wow, Jack - you sure did have a great birthday, and the Tall Guy did a fine job of picking out some fantastic pressies for you!

    (I hope he didn't totally deplete his supply of Christmas wrapping paper - after all, it's less than 4 months away....)

    Your friend,

  9. Happy birthday! I see that you are fun with the new toys. Becoming older, you are more handsome and stronger.
