piglets

It was CD's turn for a present today in the 24 Days of Christmas. Suzy sent one of his favorites, Twiglets. Oliver called them "Piglets" the first time he tried them, but they are a favorite of his too. Eleanor tried one and seemed to like it too.

In other news, it is Bubba's birthday today and he is 13 years old. That makes him the oldest Clumber to live with us. Chewy made it nearly to 13 but missed by just a few months. He started as a foster dog last January but we flunked that little exercise and he never left. Though his IBD prevented any sort of gastronomic celebration, the kids sang "Happy Birthday" to our completely deaf old guy anyway.

Happy Birthday Bubba! The first (and only) clumber I ever gave real, serious consideration to stealing :-) (Not that I haven't fully loved your other three like a good auntie should!)

We've got a birthday celebration in our house on Monday, as Luka turns 9. *sigh* Where does the time go?
