Ciao miei amici!

Guess what???? Ho due anni!!! (I am two!!)

Although I am molto (very) excited at the idea of having my second birthday, for some reason la mia ragazza has been quite emotionally tormented by it. She keeps looking at me with teary eyes and saying, "Mia bella ragazza (“My beautiful girl) is growing up.” I, Lucia, find this endlessly amusing! Does she not realize that Airedales are like Peter Pan?? We NEVER grow up!!!! Heeeeeeeeeeee!! At two years, I am just as curious, frisky, playful, rambunctious, comical and energetic as I was at one, and at one, I was as playful and mirthful and gleeful and joyful as I was at six months – and probably at six weeks, too! Possibly even six days!

La mia ragazza has something up her sleeve for my birthday, I just know. But, I will have to wait until she’s home from work to find out what it is. Do you think it will be a party with cuppycakes … mmmmm cuppycakes … and hats and pressies!?!? I, Lucia, would enjoy that enormously. In fact, I think the only way I would enjoy it more is if all of my bloggie pals could be here with me to celebrate!! MUAHHHHH!

Tanti baci!


Pee Ess: Once my birthday festivities have settled down a bit, I will come back and tell you about the very scary surgery I had to have two weeks ago, and the very scary thing that happened to me afterward. I though la mia ragazza was going to have a nervous breakdown!!! Sheeshh!!!!

Happy Barkday, Lucia! We Airedales take waaaaay longer to grow up than lots of other doggies!

We hope you didn't eat something nasty that caused you to have surgery!

We hope you get lots of treats and maybe even cake and ice cream!

Hi Lucia, have just found your blog. Happy birthday to you. I found your site through Mango Man. I am new to blogging so look forward to reading about your adventures, Slobbers Bruce

TwoSpecialWires said...

Whoa! It's been a LONG time. We hope everything's okay!

We wanted to keep ya posted ... OK?

OK. We're gonna admit. Straightaway. No bones about it. We're taking the easy peasy way out. We want to get around to EVERYONE on our blog roll to remind you about the Second Annual Worldwide Moment coming up on Sunday 14 Nov 10. Were you there last year? Do you remember? Or are you new to it this year? Wondering what that Countdown Clock is on blogs that you visit? Whatever. We want you and everyone you know to have a chance to participate in the Silent Minute, the Candle Lighting and the Shout Out! Come visit. We've got a new banner for you, HTML for an (accurate, now that the word UNTIL is in red) Countdown Clock and a link to figure out what time 11:00 PM GMT is in your neck of the woods.

So. You're getting this 'cause we've been friends in the blogging world and we want you to know.

Please forgive the "stock" comment, but we told Moma we've never done this before and we'll not do it again (at least until next year.)

Loads of wirey love and lots of encouragment to join in (and to pass the word)
Jake and Fergi (and OurMoma and OurCollegeGirl)
