Boy oh boy. Thankseverso for my barkday wishes everybloggie. Made me super dooper happy. Know what else made me wig my wag that day ? Nope. Not my birthday big bone. Or them stuffies n stuff from the Squaries.

Was the arrival of two parcels stuffed full of lovies n snoggies n pawfect presents from my sweetie Toffee. Want to feast your mince pies? On what was inside?

This naughty but nice heart cookie. Did what it said. Gave it lonnnnng licks. Plus a few Eric loves bites. Hehehee!!!

Got a fabbie cookbook chock full of pupcake recipes. And. Wow!! Takealookatthis!!! Eric's first ever Barkday cake!! Sent in a box all the way across the pee. Can you blogging believe it? Not a mark, was spiffy pawfect. All applaud UPS!!! Me and pal JR each scoffed a wacking big wodge of that cake. Yumm. Truly scrumptious. Look at me looking longingly. Cos finished mine first. I'm sure his wodge was bigger than mine.

And this!! A splendid stuffie with a message. For me!! Wow!!!She woofs me!!! Woozed over all fuzzy wuzzy. See how loved up it made me ? Whelmed over I was. Had to extract that loving by giving it one on one attention right away.

Something else too. Massively. Wicked. Hugely. Very. Very. Very. Special. Remember Sparky pawed his own impressionist painting (click to read his post all about it)to raise money for the Australian Animals caught in the terrible bush fires? Here's the Picasso dude himself, in action on his masterpiece.

Sparky put his pawfect painting on ebay. With all monies raised going direct to charity for the stricken Aussie animals. Sparky barked his Mom nearly fell off her chair when she saw how much the winning bid was. Know who that $$$$$ bidder was? My Toffee was the ebay winner.(click the link to read about it on Sparky's blog page.Titled "Updates" near the bottom of the page ) I was right naming them as uber sooper sweeties eh? And look what Toffee did with Sparky's masterpiece...

Only sent it to me!!!!! My jaw hit the floor. Knew what it was straight away. Dog's with blogs. Got to tell you. Not only me. ALL of us in Square Dog house shed more than a tear or two when we saw it. Isn't that the most wagging wonderfullest thoughfullest kindest specialest genorousest gift ? What a lucky lucky boy I am. Spoilt rotten. Mom is going to hang it in pride of place for me. Somewhere I'll always see it- show you soon everybloggie. Meantime. Going to treasure it. For ever. And ever. Like I will my precious pupcake. Woof you Toffee. You and your Mom are one in a squary squillion.

Sigh. Spent the rest of the day looking for my pupcake. Wishing she was here. Wigging her wag next to mine in my beautiful bluebell woods. Back home I made some fun videos for her. Here's one. Short and Sweet. He,hee!! Like you are Toffee!!!

Sending billions of buckets of hearfelt thanks and lovies across the big pee to you Toffee pupcake. My sweetie one in a squary squillion. Doggies. Kitties. Hammies. Go bark on her bloggie. Giving away Sparky's Masterpiece was such a wicked wonderful thing to do. Tell her you think so too.

You are the luckiest dude in the world, I can't believe she sent you that painting! She is so incredibly selfless and wonderful. That makes for a great birthday indeed.

Bobby said...

Happy birthday Eric looks like you had a great party

Mango said...

You and Toffee have a secret language for communicating. I don't understand a word you say.

It is amazing that cake survived intact. She must be a great chef.


Jan's Funny Farm said...

Wow, what a present. Toffee must really love you!

When was your 3rd birthday? Did we miss it? Cause we would have sung for you if we'd known.

Buddy didn't steal the orange Gizzy from the kitties. Jan put it on his chair for him to use. Isn't she mean! Well, mean to us kitties. Buddy is perfectly happy.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I went to Toffee to say hi to her and to say what you wanted me to say.
Happy 3th Barkday, lucky boy!

Sparky said...

Eric my man!

OMDog, HAPPY BIRTHDAY and what a FABULOUS present! I am very excited to see my painting in the paws of such a grrrrEAT friend! Toffee had mentioned to me earlier that she might pass it on to you as a birthday present, but I had completely forgotten about that. Well, I'm so glad to see you have it now, and I'm so glad you like it!

Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, I hope you had a GRRRReat day my friend! That was so nice of Toffee and Riley to send all these gifts to you! Is there any cake left over for me?


Sophie Brador said...

Eric! I totally missed your birthday. I was going to swim the pond and have a romp with you, and I clear forgot. Or my shoulders hurt too much. I can't remember which. But I am almost ten, so I figure I can be forgiven a little forgetfulness.

Hope you had a great day super square dog!


Bruce said...

Happy barkday Eric. What a wonderful package of presents you got from your pupcake Toffee. The painting is lovely. How thoughtful she is to send it to you.We would say we hoped you had a wonderful day, but it is obvious that you did.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh my dog! We've been so wrapped up in Fergi's "condition" that we didn't even realize it was your barkday!

We're heading out for a walk right now ... Fergi's pacing and more than ready. But later tonight we're coming back to see how you celebrated! We quickly glanced through (Fergi is getting impatient) and see that you must've had a GREAT day!

Please accept our very mostest sincerest bestest belatedest wishes for the most awesome birthday! And the mostest superior year to come. (How can we make up for missing your special day?!)

Your friends across the pond (well, two of them)

Your little Toffee pupcake sure woofs you a squillion (in square lingo) and gave you the bestest barkday evah!Not to mention she knows how to bake too- puggeash! you are one lucky duck.

Norwood wagged ovah to bark at Aggie's big time event! He met Toffee & Riley, and the A & A's for the first time. Of course, they played some kind of hot dog game in the water. Furry Funtimes with that dwb crew. check out their bloggies for photos.



Hi Eric
WOwzers! Your pupcake sure LOVES you! That painting and the cookies and cake! What type of spell did you put on her and mom! That ole I hurt my foot during the visit really was golden. You have them hooked on that eric lovin'.

I met your pupcake. She wouldn't look at me. Only eyes for the square. I even shared hot dogs but nothing. I think I saw a fur shaved tattoo- i love a square on her.

Great barkday! You are the best.

Fenway said...

Sorry I missed your Big Third Birthday, Eric. You look ever so mature and debonair.

Ms. Alpha played your video to me and I started squeal-barking back at you. Did you hear my bark-screams all the way over in the UK?

Your pal,


Hey eric
Thanks for the furry face off vote. Your right, the muppet face gets alot of attention but didn't think it was fair to those kitty kats. Being swallowed and tickled at the same time elicits quite the expression. You might know... the same expression you get when toffee tickles your square fancy. ha.

Happy Belated Birthday, Eric! That was a very thoughtful gift that Toffee sent you. Your pupcake is obviously very smitten with you, sending you that genuine one-of-a-kind Sparky masterpiece! The video of you love-talking at Toffee had us giggling - you're so cute when you talk!
