one-year recap, continued

Okay - today we have more highlights from my first year (my anniversary is Saturday - yippee!) I don't know what Massah has planned, but I'm sure it's something SUPER EXCITING like 27 huge cakes all for ME and all the food I want ALL DAY LONG and millions of new toys! That's just my guess, though. She's probably going to go above and beyond my wildest dreams! But back to my life in the past year:

Fig and I went on lots of adventures together! This is a picture of the first time I ever went outside to a PARK! I had so much fun and I followed Fig everywhere and did whatever she did! A bit of fun trivia for you - this park is also where I made my FIRST big-boy pee pee! That's a special place....

I also found Ottoman during this time! I love my Ottoman! He's so perfect for curling up on!

Unfortunately Fig thought Ottoman was HERS, since she was in the house before I got there, so in the end Massah made us SHARE. I still don't think it's fair. She didn't think so either. Can you tell we're unhappy with the arrangement?

Around this time I found that if I sneak up to Fig while she's SLEEPING and curl up into a tiny ball, then sometimes I can TOUCH her!!! It's my favorite!!! She doesn't even realize I'm there!!!

We also perfected the art of BITEY-FACE in my first 5-6 months!!!!!

Woot! Look at us GO!

We get CRAZY!

And then Massah yells, "BREAK IT UP YOU TWO!" The mean old lady.

But we don't stop until she yells at us lots and lots of times. Because it's too much fun to stop the first time she asks. And then we have to look very remorseful so we don't get into TOO much trouble.

Oh how I love my Fig-Pen. *sigh* I try to copy everything she does. Even the way she lays in the sun.

Life can't get any better than this. Unless, of course, I get cake and ice cream and massive amounts of food on Saturday.

Ruby Bleu said...

You and Fig are so cute together. I know she says she doesn't like you sometimes, but I really think she does!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Where do I START?? You have expreienced so much of the good life this past year. That photo of you at the park with the wind blowing through your wispy hair, the bitey face with Fig (can't tell where you stop & she begins). That looks fiercely fun! And your looks of remorse are almost convincing! That Fig has taught you a treasure trove of life skills, man!

Massah is so lucky to have you, and that goes for Fig too. I'm with Ruby, she loves you, buddy, otherwise she wouldn't let you touch her... EVER. She has finely honed radar and she knows when you curl up next to her, don't you think she doesn't.

Enjoy your celebration!! Revel in your love for Massah, and Fig, and Motch, and Massah-in-law!! They LOVE YOU, MAN!!

Goober love & anniversary kisses,

Oh Tadpole, we are so happy for you. We can tell that you and Fig are really close. Just like Zoe and I. Zoe won't even come downstairs in the morning until I come down too.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

You better get lots and lots of treats and cake and toys, its the least Massah can do after you agreed to live with her. HMPH!

Can wait to hear about the big celebration.

Oh man I bet you're going to have a great anniversary! A whole YEAR of Tad. Whatever did Massah and Fig do before you? Probably sat around and cried all day.

Are you going to have carrot/prescription food cake? I hope you can eat something special. You can borrow my pancreas for the day!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Tad.
I am with Wally. Take my pancreas and eat all the ice cream and cakes you want next saturday!!! Whatever you need I am here for you!!
Your bitey-face game is cool!
Have a nice day

Luckie Girl said...

Ya know Tad my dear, I think life is looking food for you. Fig isn't that bad is she? We can't wait to hear about your pawty!

Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

Boy, some of those bitey face pictures were sort of scary. We don't care what Fig says, Tadpole. We are pretty sure she likes you too!

Tadpole! I *love* the second picture of you, how you're staring off into the distance with the wind blowing in your beautiful white hair. It's perfect! And really, you and Fig couldn't be any funnier when you share that ottoman. I think she's only PRETENDING not to love you, because really, how could she not? Here's to you on your first anniversary! You're luck to be so loved by your Massah! Woot!

Hi Taddy! I'm glad you liked my bicycle post. I bet your could get your Mom to ride a bike if you whined a whole lot. Then you could have your hairs blowing in the breeze all the time, just like in the picture of you at the park. I love that picture!
