Birthdays etc....

So this weekend is a national holiday. What? You haven't heard?

Well, February 20 is Inky's and Mama's birthday. And the whole nation, heck, the whole world needs to know (apparently) that we take the birthday bizzo very serious. Following a series of public announcements (giving everydoggie a fair chance to get presents, cards and best wishes organised), we commence celebrations usually a day in advance. After all, it is half the family celebrating their birthday on the same day...

We usually have a whole weekend planned and/or a trip away. Because the two lovelies had to spend their birthdays apart last year (and gosh, we never heard the end of that, did pinkie's friend have to get married that weekend, in another country?), we are making up for it this year (apparently).

So we are all off to the beautiful Queenscliff for a couple of nights. It's only about half an hour away from home and we go there quite often, but it really is a nice place, beautiful historic township, beaches and great accommodation. The pink people have scored themselves some hot tix for the Blues Train for Saturday night and will celebrate with their own race for a few hours.

The Blues Train is a no puppies event unfortunately but we will keep the cottage we rented nice and cozy for them that night. To be honest, we need a little bit of a break from celebrating with their friends. This is what happened last time (New Year's Eve)...

So we are looking forward to a quiet night that night and a big day on the beach  & birthday lunch with friends the day after.

Hey, I don't often admit it (I am simply not the complaining type, not like somedoggie else we know) but with all that fuss about THEIR birthday, I do feel left out a bit. Sure, my birthday is a special one too (September 11!), however, I don't share it with my favourite pink person... (insert big sad puppy face)...
However, my friends Hootie and Baby have just made up for that as they elected me as one of their winners and made me feel sooooooo special (thank you pals!). Read all about it here...

Got to dash, will try and get some snooze before the BIG weekend....

Lots of love,
