Big Day Today!

Hi everypuppy! It's me - Amber! Today is the big day! It's Groundhog Day! For our international readers who may not know about Groundhog Day, please click here to go back to last year's post. Stormy gave some really good links to explain all about Punxsutawney Phil and how he decides if we're going to have six more weeks of winter or an early spring. This year, he decided we're going to have six more weeks of winter! YEA, Phil!

Stormy also explained last year that coincidentally enough, I was born on Groundhog Day! Given my ability to predict whether or not we're going to get snow, it's rather appropriate, don't you think? Hee hee hee!

Mom took me outside this morning to get my prediction. I got my snooter busy ...

and checked for any lovely snow in the area. (I look a little bit like Meeshka in that picture above, don't you think?)

I gave the forecast a lot of careful thought, as you can see. Sadly ... our immediate forecast is ...

... no snow. Sigh. If only I could request and not just predict!

Yoplait has a new snooter-friendly yogurt cup. I predict we'll get to share some of that to celebrate my birthday! I hope you'll join us in the celebration - I'm NINE today!

Love - and paws up to Punxsutawney Phil!


  1. Happy Birthday Amber! And happy groundhog day! I do think it's cool that you're a weatherdog and you were born on groundhog's day. I hope you get some yummy yogurt!


    Steve and Wilbur say Happy Birthday too!

  2. Happy Birthday to woo! I hope to get some yogurt to help celebrate!

  3. AN ODE TO AMMIE on her 9th Boofday

  4. Happy Birthday Ammy! That is so cool that you were nine years old, I've just turned eight!
    Me and Madie hope you have a wonderful birthday explanation mark!

  5. Happy Birthday!!!! You do look a lot like Meeskha in that pic. Well, minus the extra 'fluffiness' of course!

    Now if only Phill could send us the snow for those last 6 weeks of winter!!

  11. Hey ho,

    Happy B-day Amber. You are one good-lookin' gal. I guess we're in a kind of May-December thing, though, seein' as I'm just 2. But when you're as attractive as us--who cares about ages, right?

    Enjoy your Yoplait--will you share some with the others?

    Happy Birthday Amber! Enjoy your yogurt...and wish for snow!

  15. Happy birthday, Amber! We got hail here yesterday. 2 feet of it. And then a little snow. Maybe I can send you some as a birthday present!

  16. My Mom grew up just outside of Punxsutawney and has seen that Phil character in person! I am glad his prediction made you dogs happy!

  17. that last comment was from me, not my wacky Mom.

    oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!?!?!

  18. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMBER! Hope that new yogurt was yummy. Hey we got your snow here today! It only snows once a year in Tokyo or every second year so we were surprised to see snow on the eve of spring!
    Jazz and Dixie

  19. Happy birthday, Amber! We hope you get lots of treats and pressies!
    We were very happy with Phil's prediction as we haven't had much snow this year! Six more weeks of winter sounds great to us! Gotta go - mom is giving us the dirty look!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  20. PS: You are the prettiest groundhog ever!

  21. Happy Birthday, Amber! (We a two leggerd friend named Amber whose birthday was Feb 1!) We hope you had a wonderful birthday and a great groundhog day. If you see any groundhogs, let us know, we think we would like to chase one!

    Roxie, Sammy & Andy

  22. Happy Birthday Amber!


  23. Am, I missed your birthday. A Booooh Rooooooh. I am so sorry. Lots of belated greetings and snoses and all sorts.

    I don't understand this GD thing but I am more interested in you anyway. You look very beautiful in those photos. I hope you forgive me for missing our birthday. :(

    You look very professional in these pictures, and you are certainly more photogenic than that groundhog, Phil!
