Yoohoo everybloggie! Today is my dear nephew Bertie's 1st Birthday. Wig your wagger over to wish him a happy one won't you? Now. Bet you've often pondered how me and my young nephew Bertie lookielikee ? Tee heee. Loookie.

Which is him?

Which is me?

See? Twinses! With our one ear up trick.

Both of us interested

in broadening our minds. By getting hold of a good book. Get the picture? Yeah me and him. Have the very same Square Dog Squareness. When I yapped this excitedly to M Square she dismissed it as "another of your fanciful idea's Eric. Of course you aren't his Uncle. I'll get hold of little Bertie's Pee Degree from Gail to show you"

She did. Boy oh boy. Bark about gobsmacked!! This handsome foxy below is Bertie's Daddy's Daddy. That's Bertie's Grandpa. Int.Ch Sanfelipe Sunny Bay with Malrich.

Ain't he a looker? That handsome dude above is also my Daddy's Daddy. My Grandpappy too!!!! Woopeee dooo!!!! Me and Bertie really DID get our pee degrees from the same pee pod.

One quarter of the family pee tree is XACTLY the same for him as it is for me!!! Going back for ever and ever. All the yellow highlighted lines in on our pee degree are the same. We share a couple of Great/Great Great Grandma's on our Mother's side too.

Means. I'm Bertie's Uncle. Square Stepbrother. Once removed. Cracker Dog Cousin. Officially. But then me' n Bertie knew all long we shared the same very same size 16 and 1/2" square jeans. Even though his are mostly straight and narrow denim. And mine are more down 'n dirty distressed. Know what M Square said bout all this ? "Hmmm. Seem's to me Eric the gene pool of Squares is waaaaay too small. Most likely accounts for how really wired you foxies are"

Wired??? But of course!!! Nephew Bertie. I'm proper proud to bark,is carrying on our fine foxy family tradition.

Happy Barkday Bertie!!!

Oh Uncle Eric (I may still call you uncle, mayn't I?) what a fascinating and wonderful post! And I am so proud to claim you are a 'real' relative. Isn't our grandfather just such a handsome chappie! I am going to show his picture to Gail in the (probably forlorn) hope that she will raise her game in the grooming stakes...
As for those narrow genes, well, wired by name and wired by nature I guess!
Toodle pip!
PS If only you lived closer, you could come and share some of my birthday cake.

A most excellent ode to Bertie birthday. Clearly he comes from superior stock.


Gus said...

In Virginia we would call you and Bertie "kissin' cousins." And tell M.Squared that in certain counties in Tennessee, it is illegal to marry if you are NOT double first cousins. Accounts for some of the similarities between wires and red necks, huh!

Whoopeeeee Yee Haw.

Are you gettin' out of the naughty corner to come to the pawty?


Agatha and Archie said...

WHOA fascinating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE think we are all related and that is why we are so CRACKER DOG CRAZY WOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Listen Archie is so pumped for this party that he has learned 3 new accordion songs so get ready... I had my nails done in plaid just for Bertie... Hey.... are you bringing some RABBIT STEW????? BUGS BUNNY CARTOONS???? WELSH RABBIT?????(listen that was his idea not mine... ) Love and a trillion A+A

George the Lad said...

Hi Eric.
Just been over to Bertie's fancy that both from the same pea pod!!!
See Yea George xxx

Jake of Florida said...

Consaguinity, that's what they call it. We have some of that "right here in river city" 'cause my mom's mom and dad were first cousins even though they lived in different towns in the Ukraine. That 'splains a lot, we think!!!!

As for me and my brother -- somewhere the pee degree got losted, and we is what we is!!! Still cracker dogs though!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Barbara said...

Pawesome post for Bertie on this special day!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh dogness. We think you've started something that's gonna (hopefully temporarily) deny us of some well deserved attention. Of the takin' walks and playin' with toys type. We may have to start getting ahold of a couple of books, ourselves. Or something. To get Moma's attention back to where it's s'posed to be. On our cuteness. NOT our pee degrees. (What is it about trees and branches on paper that captures the two-leggeds attention, anyway?)

Ready for bed. Camelot 'bout did me in.
Jake (and Fergi ... she's still galavanting with Butchy somewhere)

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Eric dear one! How cool is it that you and Bertie really are related?! Very!! We adore the photos of you two...sure is a family resemblence. We did stop by and wish him a happy B-Day last week. Mommy has had us so busy wrapping up prizes from our contest: 16 packages have been mailed out now and only 1 to go (still need an address). And now her camera is's always somethin'!! Anywhooo, we wanted to ask you to tell your mum that we gave one of the WFT/Welshie tea towels to our pastor's wife(she is owned by a WFT,Raina) and Miss Irene was over the moon happy with it. She was soooo excited and said she had never seen anything like it, so we just had to let you know. Miss Irene was also wondering where to get those cute little stickers. She was really impressed!! So glad our mommy went to your Esty site. You're a fab friend!
Smooches from pooches,
BabyRD & Hootie

William Tell said...

Eric, could you by chance pencil me in there on a blank line somewhere? I'd love to be related to the Squares across the Big Pee. Just call me your American cousin, okay? A few times removed. Well, okay, waaaaay out there on one of those branches. Call it the shallow end of the gene pool, if you will.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Asta said...

Good evening ERIC
Thank you I am safe.
However, a lot of people in Japan are the quake damages.
And, the damage of the tsunami has been received.
The danger of the meltdown of the nuclear plant has been put out by the government.
Very, it is uneasy.
