Di un anno!

Ciao, miei amici!

Today I am ONE YEAR OLD!

That means I am officially all grown up!! (Although la mia ragazza STILL calls me her baby girl ... sheeesh ....)

My barkday celebration began a day or so ago while I was still visiting my cugina (cousin) Heidi, and mia zia (aunt) and zio (uncle) in Tennessee. Heidi and I put on party hats and had some tasty, sweet yummies to kick off the festivities, and THEN, mia zia drove back with us to mia citta (my city), so we will be celebrating again today, on my official barkday!!!! Yayyyyyyy!!! I don't know what la mia ragazza and la mia zia have in store for me today, but I, Lucia, am hoping for some torta e gelato (cake and ice cream) ... mmmmmmm torta and gelato .... because I have been paying attention to what happens to my bloggie pals on their barkdays and there always seems to be torta and gelato. Do you think I'll get some, too?????? Mmmmmmmm .... I sure hope so!!!

Just look at this bellissima (absolutely beautiful!) biglietto di compleanno (birthday card) I received today from mia cara amica (my dear friend),
Asta! Thank you, Asta!!!! Muahhhhhhh!!!

Buon Compleanno Lucia
Build your own Blingee

(And now that I am all grown up, I can drink that pretty pink pawtini!!! And probably one of Lacie's favuloso smoothies, too!!!! Heeeeeeeee!!!!)

By the way, la mia ragazza says she feels like it is HER barkday today, too, because she has me, her best present ever! Awwwwwww .....!!!!!! As for me, my best present is all of you, dearest bloggie pals! You make my world sweeter, brighter and happier!!!! Ti amo, everybloggie!!!!

Tanti baci!

I think maybe you are still a teenager so watch out for those smoothies.

In fact, watch out for Lacie beast in general.

Happy birthday young Lucia.
I can't remember being one year old, it was forever ago! So you might think you're all grown up now, but I'm afraid that to oldsters like me, you'll always be a pup. That's just the way it is!
Cheers, H.

Yes, the hurleys are holding up well. We've had them for a few weeks now. Keeley doesn't chew, but Teagan does. She still has her sharp puppy teeth too. Also, we've been taking them to the park with us and the other dogs there love to chew on them too, especially a black lab named Jefferson and a white german shepherd named Chester. They are big dogs with big jaws and still the hurleys have not a dent on them. We got ours from sitstay.com

I am six months old and my mom says I won't get a brain until I'm two. Maybe that means I'll be grown up then.

Ciao Bella Lucia!!!!

Nancy Seacrist is MY groomer!!!!! She IS Seneca Airedales :) She also has a grooming and boarding kennel -- I, sadly, am not from her brood -- but she gives me the best haircut -- and loves me!!!

Yes, I was named after the Nestle's Quik dog ... I don't have a fancy name... my breeder was an Amish man.. who MOMMY thinks mistook the Airedales for SHEEP!! He clipped my tail OFF!!! Thanks for commenting ... I love your page :)

TwoSpecialWires said...

What? Your birthday was July 28 and today it's August 26? Where have we been??? We know the heat of Florida took a lot out of us, but this is inexcusable!!! Per favore accept our scuse! We are imbarazzato! Our buona amica and we missed your birthday! Twenty lashes!

We also see that you met my Farfel and he has been here before us! He's a good boy. And has better manners, evidently, than we do!

Happy belated Birthday, Lucia!
Jake and Fergi xxoo
