Happy Birthday, Fitz!




Happy birthday to my little dude, who turns three years old today! I’d buy him a special bag of treats but he got about 15 different kinds for Christmas from various family members, so he’s well stocked on that front. I will, however, treat him to extra cuddles and squeezes and belly rubs and let him eat as many ice cubes as he wants (he loves ice cubes). He’s brought so much joy to our lives since we adopted him almost two and a half years ago. He’s silly and adorable and full of personality. Sure, sometimes he pukes on everything for no reason, and he is smelly within a day of being bathed, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I can’t believe you’re three, Fitz! I love you right down to your little white beard and socks.

  1. Happy birthday you sweet little man! I just love that fuzzy, bearded face! All our girls say happy, happy and yes to extra belly rubs and more treats please!

    1. Aw, thank Violet, Lucy, and Thea from him! That was so sweet :) I think he had a pretty good day! xo

  2. My grandson turns 3, my grandson turns 3. Happy Birthday to my loving, funny, rambunctious grandbaby. May your parents provide a real one soon….

    Oh, and Happy Birthday from Sookie and Bart, too. Hugs and squeezes from MomMom!

    1. Whoa whoa whoa, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Fitz is enough of a handful for now! xo

        1. Last I checked, Fitz’s lack of opposable thumbs precluded him from having a blog. Sooo…

          1. You are just the middle Mom in this case. He told me to tell you that HE wants a baby, too.

    1. Hahah, seriously. We actually don’t have a rug at all in the living room right now for that exact reason. xo

  3. oh happy birthday fitzaroo! you are looking so extra handsome with that pia wallen crux blanket in the background. i hope you get lots of extra kisses on your cute little whiskers today.

    ps marla randomly barfs too. what is up with that? obviously you know she was sick when we got her, so that was expected at the time, part of the symptoms. but now she just barfs, for apparently no reason, and burps pretty much all the time. weirdos.

    1. A boxer owner/breeder with 2 champions (the male finished up at 16 months!) told me to put a little warm water on the kibble and let it sit for a few minutes before feeding. A veterinary gastroenterologist told her the dry kibble absorbs too much of the stomach acid and upsets their stomach balance. So far it’s worked for my Shih Tzu….well, that and 1/2 of a pepcid ac every morning.

      1. thanks mommy moo! you know, sometimes i do put a little warm water in her food, maybe that’s why it’s random, because she doesn’t do it on those days! makes perfect sense. i’ll keep doing that and hopefully it will help :)

    2. Not pictured, because I folded it in just such a way: the Fitz-mouth-sized hole he chewed in said Pia Wallen blanket. I don’t want to talk about it. It should speak volumes about how much I love him that he is still alive after that incident. ;)

      Fitz burps, too! You can always expect one about 5-10 minutes after he finishes eating. And sometimes he’ll just be standing there and then…yak. For no reason! Dogs are so weird! I hope Marla is feeling better overall though. You haven’t posted about her in a while! xo

    1. Haha, thanks Yelle! I didn’t sing it to him, but my nieces did sing it to me on my birthday last month! I thought that was so neat! xo

  4. OMG! what a cuddle monster.. look at those eyes.. but I have learned puppy’s with I am innocent eyes.. are full of mischief. He also looks like he thinks in French ;)

    1. You are so right! Haha, it’s like you have a mischievous dog of your own ;) And he is quite the cuddle monster, but only in short doses because then he starts poking you with his bony little legs and darts off to get a toy. xo

  5. Awwww he’s too adorable! I would like to wish Fitz a happy belated birthday, and Toby would like to include a few sloppy droolly kisses for good measure :-)

    1. Squeeee sloppy puppy kisses! What a generous little dude Toby is! Fitz says merci for the birthday wishes!! xo
