It's your birthday!

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Well - I found the picture I was looking for that I talked about in the last post - in April! As soon as I can get to the old pictures I'll start updating this, pup. ;-)
Happy Birthday - Love the Bud! ~ J

As you can see by the little block on the side of this page - it's been 3 years since we said goodbye to you. I WILL get back to this site... one day, pup. ;-) It's a yucky day out there this morning - the skies really are gray...

I wanted to post a picture I had of you on my lap in the living room... you would sit on top of me and I would look at you in the fireplace..It was always one of my favorites. I can't seem to find it so I'll add this one instead.

You'll always be my sunshine, puppy dog. Love The Bud.

another time - another place... another year

Oh, RoseBud... My last post was a year ago today. When I think of you I see you playing outside or on the beach... maybe because we have so many pictures of you there... I was reading the letter I wrote to you a few days after the 16th - two years ago... Among other things, I said I was "glad you got to see the ocean and walk in the sand and go to so many places..." Most dogs don't get to sleep in a comfy Hilton bed or order room service or go on all the adventures you went on. You were one lucky pup, RoseBud. I promise to get back to this soon and continue to document your fabulous puppy dog life.

Love the Bud forever!

525,600 minutes

525,600 minutes...

How do you measure - measure a year?

RoseBud must have heard that song (Seasons of Love) a thousand times since we are big time fans of the show Rent. It just so happens that we have tickets tonight to see the new touring production with the old Roger & Mark.

It's been one year (525,600 minutes) since you've been gone...  with a thousand sweet kisses, pup - we love you and we miss you!

Happy Birthday, Pup.

You would have been nine years old today...

Party Animal

RoseBud always celebrated her birthdays with lots of food (preferably meatballs!) and lots of gifts.  She had a Super Sweet First Birthday that was lots of fun...

Treats:  bone shaped petit fours, chocolate covered marshmallows with rosebuds on them, paw print cookies, pup cakes and more...
Craft: All the kids made frames and had their picture taken with RoseBud.

Gifts: Lots & Lots of gifts!

Love: All the kids wrote something to RoseBud for her birthday.

You are my (sunshine) RoseBud

Since I was a little girl I would always sing the song You are my Sunshine with my dog's name in place of the Sunshine...

You are my RoseBud - my only RoseBud
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear - how much I love you
Please don't take my RoseBud away

So, to RoseBud Clementine, Gypsy Ming Rose and Pepper - keep shining!




PS - Happy Birthday to ME.

RoseBud had a lot of clothes & a lot of costumes!  She had many fans on Halloween that would come by to see what she was dressed as.

Here are a few of her costumes.

Still here... It's actually February!  I'm going to do some back posting so check back for new posts soon!

In the meantime... I came across a site called wordle that creates a design or "word cloud" (as they call it) of words used in recent posts. Kind of neat...
