A Very Special Birthday Gift for Sharkey

Posted by Sharkey

As many of you know, I celebrated my birthday last Thursday, the 18th of February.  Thank you to all of those who left birthday greeting comments on this blog.  I was having a very pleasant time at home when the guard announced that there was a delivery with my name on it.  Eliad, our tech guy, brought it up to the house.  It was an amazing floral arrangement from all of my fans and friends at Floral Creations by Perennial Gardens, located in Bedford, New York.  Thank you so very much.  You made my day.

The balloons are a very festive touch.  Don't you agree, Franny?

I'll just pull this pretty ribbon to unwrap the cellophane.

I know these flowers.  They're hydrangeas - one of our favorites in the garden.

Isn't this just sensational?  A most gorgeous dog bone.  Now, if I could just eat it.  Ha-ha.

  • Wow Sharkey- I am so impressed! What a gorgeous birthday gift-and how thoughtful of your mom, Martha!
    A very happy birthday to ya, Sharkey, although it's a bit belated.

  • Hope you had a wonderful birthday Sharkey!! Get out there and play in all that beautiful snow!!

  • Sharkey what a beautiful arrangement but wouldn't you have preferred a dog treat instead? Pretty but give me the bone. I'm sure you had a wonderful birthday with extra treats.

    What a beautiful weekend, the sun was bright and no SNOW!!! I got to sit out on the deck with mom and soak up some rays, it felt good being out in the warm sunshine. I'm hoping the rain that is coming today melts all this white stuff I'm sick of looking at it.

    Sophie goes to see the Doctor today to get her staples and stitches out we're all hoping she doesn't have to wear that funny lampshade any more she doesn't like that one bit, can't blame her she looks silly.

    Well it's time for breakfast have a nice day.

  • Happy Belated Birthday Sharkey: On my, aren't those flowers beautiful and in the shape of a bone. Too bad you can't just chomp down on it. How very thoughtful.

    Well, it was nice and warm yesterday. I got a swell sunbath and my mom and dad bought me a swell bed for the floor from PetSmart. I love to lie down next to daddy's recliner. My new floor bed has a bolstered edge and my big toys are there to be my pillow. I just love it.

    Well, time to take an early morning nap. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Hello Ladies,
    OMG is right!!!! Sharkey, that is the most beautiful dog bone I have ever seen. How lucky you are to have fans and friends to send such a gorgeous dog bone. When is Franny's b-day? You two are pretty close in age I thought. We got 5 inches of snow over the weekend and it is sure pretty, but really cold. BRRRRR!!!! Have a great day all.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I’ll bet that everyone who saw that big dog bone made of flowers said, “I’ve got a bone to pick with you.” Get it; flowers, picking them, bone, picking it, well never mind. It was a good weekend here with the sun shinning for a change. But that didn’t last for long; it’s raining again this morning. No walking today. I keep telling daddy that I have a raincoat and will put it on, but he says that because we don’t have sidewalks, and will be walking along the streets of our neighborhood, we could get hit by a car. He says that he’s seen how people drive in the rain. They won’t put the phone down and watch where they are going.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Sharkey accept our sincere "Belated Birthday Wish" from Kitty and mommie delia...we did not catch that!
    Many, many more Happy and Healthy Birthday's for you Dear Sharkey!

    Those flowers are spectacular, and you are one lucky pup to have such friends...

  • What a beautiful birthday present you received Sharkey. Can you imagine if you had actually received doggie treats the size of that bone? I bet there would have been two doggies and one puppy with a Queen sized tummy ache. :lol:

    Francesca, I feel bad for missing your birthday back on December 1st when you turned 5 so a Very Happy and Very Belated Birthday to you Francesca!!!!!

  • Hi Girl Friends, Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday my dear Sharkey! My Mom forgot to tell me it was your birthday on the 18th. I sure hope you had a really special day and I love that 'bone' flower you received. What did Franny, GK and Martha give you for your birthday?! I'll bet whatever it was was great. Sure wish I knew exactly when I was born, but my Mom got me when I was 11 months old and nobody seemed to know the exact date, just that it was in June of 2004. My Mom and I celebrate my birthday the whole month of June. Fun! Hope all of you are staying warm. Love to all, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Happy belated birthday Sharkey I am sorry I missed your special day but sending my best doggie wishes on to you now.
    I am at the groomers so am sending this email through my human Mama.
    The flowers are gorgeous Sharkey just gorgeous lucky gal.
    Enjoy them.
    Looks cold there.
    Love & smiles,
    Mrs. Bosley Chow Chow
