Happy Birthday, Mom!
Today is my mom’s birthday. Bailie and I are celebrating with her, including party hats and this sign. At her age, just helping her smile is something she appreciates. I don’t know how old she is, but it is more than sixteen because I can’t count that high on my toes. She says she still feels like a twenty nine or so, but geez, that is super old too. I think her mind might be going.
Bailie and I decided to have some fun, and put this sign “slow senior old zone” under our birthday sign. Boy were we laughing our furs off cracking old people jokes! Lucky for us, Mom is a pretty good sport most of the time. We didn’t really do any shopping for her birthday. We plan on doing what we do every year – go for a nice long walk in a fun place together. The weather should be good for walking too.
Since it is Mom’s special day, we each did a selfie with her. Photos are always good to have. I love the camera and love doing selfies alone, or with Mom.
Bailie stinks at selfies, Mom isn’t too good either, so their selfie is a bit weird.
Mom is still having lots of trouble missing Katie. I wanted to include this photo we had someone take of all of us together last year on Mom’s birthday. Katie may not be here with us physically, but her furs are still all over the house, and she lives on in our memories every single day.
Word has it, there will be cake at some point today. Mom always has chocolate stuff, yuck! The flavor of the cake isn’t really what worries me, it’s the candles. At her age, it is a serious fire hazard if she lights up all the candles. Never fear, though, I’m ready and standing by should something go wrong! I know we will have a great day with Mom. As long as we are all together, things are always good!
Happy Birthday, Mom!
We love you! Emma & Bailie

Happy Happy Birthday Mom – have the most wonderful day 🙂
We took her for a two hour walk to get the day off to a good start.
Thank you. Mom will have a great day.
Nice post Emma! Happy Birthday to your mom!! Our mom is old too. Really old — she said something about this year she is going to be a century old ..or was it half a century old.. who knows … she’s old! Happy Birthday Emma’s Mom!! Have a great walk, your doodle friend Dash
Old moms are still the best I think. We walked our mom for two hours this morning and now we are back home resting after a nice, well earned breakfast.
Mason Canyon says
Oh, Happy Happy Birthday to your Mom. May her day be filled with joy and laughter.
We will do our best to keep her happy today.
Happy Birthday Mom! Have A Fabulous Day!
Thank you. I think she will have a wonderful day.
Such a fun post! Happy Birthday to your very special Mom from all of us!
Thank you kitties. Bailie and I are doing our best to make it a great day…cat bro Bert, on the other paw, has made Mom really mad already, but that is what he does.
Sparkle the PBGV says
You guys are so bad at being wise butts! If your mom sees this post you and Bailie will both be in time-out corners! Happy birthday to your mom. XOXO Sparkle
You have to admit, old people are pretty funny! Mom has a good sense of humor and often laughs at herself, so I think we will be alright.
Oz the Terrier says
LOL! You two are so funny! I am sure you gave your mom lots of smiles today with this post. Wish her a very happy birthday from me and my Ma. We hope she has a great day and a fun weekend with you girls!
We already took Mom for a super long walk and gave her eggs for breakfast, so we are off to a good start!
Quinn and Carol says
Happy Birthday, Mom! Have a beautiful walk!
We had a fabulous walk – perfect temps, just lots of fun.

Happy birthday, hope you have a lovely day
Thank you. We will do our best to make sure Mom has a great day.
Mary Hone says
Happy Happy Birthday. Have a wonderful day.
Thank you. We know she is going to have a great day.
Happy Birthday to your Mom! I know you’ll make her day super special! Tell your Mom I’m forever 29 too 😉
Thank you. I find a lot of humans get stuck in the 20’s, which is still really old in my canine opinion!
Christmas the Dachshund says
BOW WOW, happy barkday!
Thank you. We are going to have a blast today!
What a sweet birthday wish to your Dog Mom! It’s so special you including your angle sister Katie too, I know your Dog Mom appreciated it! Happy Birthday from us too! Smiles, Barks and Wagging Tails, Denise & ~Shasta
Thank you. We helped her have a super fun day!
Dolly the Doxie says
You guys are pretty hard on your mom! But at least you finished nice. Memories are a wonderful thing it’s nice your mom had the picture taken with Katie last year. Love Dolly
She can take it. She makes fun of us too, so it’s only fair to make old lady jokes about her sometimes.
M. K. Clinton says
Happy birthday!!! We know the girls will spoil you rotten today. Have a wonderful day. ♥
We did our best. You know what they say…a tired human is a good human, right?
Brenda Darkow says
Happy Birthday Cousin! Enjoy your chocolate cake ?.
Thank you! I will!
Jan K says
Happy Birthday to your Mom! We know she’ll have a great day as long as she can enjoy it with her girls. You’re a little rough on her though, aren’t you – we don’t think she’s nearly as old as you’re making her out to be! LOL
Compared to us, she is really, really old! Despite being old, she does still have a lot of energy, though.
What a sweet birthday post. So glad Katie got to drop by in a photo memory. Can’t be too careful with all those 29 candles. *cough cough* Happy Birthday, Mama!
Love and licks,
We most certainly don’t need a fire here, so I am ready!
Ellen's Shedlarz says
Happy Birthday Mom. Hope you and the girls had a great day!
We’ve had a great day, but we are all rather tuckered out at this point.
My Golden Life says
Happy Birthday Joy!!! Puppy kisses from Shadow and Ducky and Hugs from Me on your special day. ???????????☀️????
Mom sends her thanks. We’ve been making sure her day has been real fun and special.
What a SUPER FUN POST!!! Happy Happy Birthday to your most pawesome Mom!!! She is so talented and is such a good Mom to you!!! Hoping Mom got all of the chocolate that she wanted!!! Oh and I am CERTAIN your Mom is younger than mine!!!! Happy Happy Birthday to your Mom!!! xoxo DakotasDen
I just know she is really old compared to me and Bailie, but she is still a lot of fun. We have helped her have a great birthday.
The Island Cats says
Happy Birthday to your mom! We bet she’s younger than our ol’ mom. 😉
I don’t know. A lot of folks say they think she is younger than she really is, but Mom says you are only as old as you feel, and she doesn’t feel too old.
We hope your Mama had a pawsome birthday!!!
We made sure she had a pawsome day 🙂
Ruth and Layla says
Happy Birthday, hope you had a wonderful day
Thank you. Mom had a great day, lots of fun and family around.
Hope your Mom had a very Happy Birthday!! We are positive her favorite part was sharing it with you two!
She always says, anything that includes us is tops in her book.
Happy Birthday to your awesome Mom! Make sure to give her plenty of huggles as I know she is still missing your sister very much.
I can’t help but notice cat bro Bert does not seem to be sending any birthday wishes. Do these cats ever think about anything but themselves?
We made sure Mom had a really nice day. As for the cats, Sophie is only interested in herself, and cat bro Bert only pops up when there is food to be had. Cats just are not like dogs!
Groovy Goldendoodles says
I pray you had an incredible birthday with your two favorite GBGV girls!
Thank you. We took good care of Mom. We walked her in the morning and I accompanied her to Gramma’s house in the afternoon while Bailie stayed home to cat sit. It was a good day!
Daisy & Poppy says
Happy belated birthday to your Mom! Hope she has a great day! And we think she can’t be that old!
Thank you. Believe me she is old. Bailie and I put all our paws together and still couldn’t add up to her age! At least she is still fun. Age is partly a mental thing I think.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
What great Bday wishes from the gals. Hope your Birthday was great!
We made sure Mom had a fun day with us and family.
The Daily Pip says
I sure hope she had a wonderful birthday! I am sure it’s so hard without Katie, but hopefully the memories of past birthdays together will give comfort.
So glad you are prepared in case of a birthday candle explosion!
We made sure Mom had a super fun day with us and family. She is still pretty sad about Katie, but we try to keep her cheered up.
Tails Around the Ranch says
*♪ღ♪Happy♪ღ♪*★Birthday to your mom ☆ Trust me when I say, birthdays with zeros in them are extra special! ♥￥☆★☆★☆￥♥ ★☆
Mom passed the zero one a couple years ago and is headed towards the next one, but I have one with a zero in it coming up this fall!
Miss Harper Lee says
Wishing your mom a very happy, if slightly belated, birthday. I know you girls made it extra special for her, and that she felt Katie’s presence and love. P.S. That last photo cracked me up!
She had a super fun day with us and the family. Nothing too wild, but a good day!
Knotty Toys for Good Dogs says
3 bum swings! 3 more!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO EMMA’S & BAILIES MOM!!!
Katie is always with you <3
Thank you. We made sure she had a real nice day!
That was a really sweet birthday post. I did wish her a happy one on Facebook. I’m sure you all made it so super nice for her and she loved just spending time with you. I know there’s nothing I want more on my birthday.
A good walk first thing is always the most important event on all of our birthdays. We made sure she had a great day and she did get your Facebook post too.
Happy birthday! I have been thinking about you a lot. I know you miss Katie so much. It is nice to see the picture of her from last year.
Bailie and I are doing alright, but Mom gets super sad every day and especially when she sees photos of Katie. It’s hard, but we know in time she will change those tears to smiles for the good memories.
