Join the Celebration!

Tail wags, everypuppy and everykit! It's me, Stormy! It's a great day here at Ao4 HQs today - we sure wish all of you could join us!

The festivities started yesterday, when we received a new order of Happy Hearts Cookies! Mom and I unpacked the box, then the boys checked out the enclosed card.

Zim, Dave, Storm in background
It's for all of us!
From Mom and Dad! Woo!

There were cookies galore in there, a cool sticky-note pad and pen with the Happy Hearts logo (we think we'll let Mom have those), and a cool magnet. Here is Ammy, checking that out:

The Yammer
It says we're "Official Taste Testers of the Happy Hearts Dog Cookies Kitchen Club"! And it reads, "If you bake it, we can't wait to taste it!"

Pups, that's sure the truth! We love all the flavors we've had the pleasure to sample! Here I am, trying the new Wheat-Free Oatmeal Cookies:

Stormy - Happy Hearts for her birthday
Mmmmmm!

Great Balto in the morning! They're just delicious! Very easy on the tummy, too! We also tried the new Ginger flavored ones and gave those 16 paws up.

So this morning, shortly after breakfast, we got a round of Happy Hearts. There was a little bit of a chill in the air and Mom and Dad said we should all six go on a nice, long walk to celebrate. Celebrate? The Happy Hearts order? The wonderfully cool air? Yes, but that's not all. It's ... my honorary birthday!

Stormy - the birthday girl!
I'm 14 today!

Please help us celebrate by doing all your favorite things! Here is a shot from this morning of us doing one of ours:

Have a great day, readers!

  16. Stormy .........I am in Awe.

    As usual I have no idea where Awe is, but it seems I am there.

    I digress. To dear Stormy:-

    "Your Honorary Birthday must be celebrated big time.

    But here are my verses, and as usual they are in rhyme....

    I cannot send you cookies,
    I cannot bark or Woo,

    My Jeannie cannot click her heels
    Like in 'some' films, they often do....

    But from Across The Big Puddle
    I am sending lots of love,

    Many Marvin licks....kind thoughts and good wishes.........

    Now, when they put those cookies down,

    Please make sure you completely lick the dishes!


    lotsaluv and many congratulations

    your loyal pal, Marvin xxxxxxx

  53. Wow Stormy,
    We can't believe that you're 14; you don't look a day over 8. We sure know how y'all feel about those Happy Heart Cookies. We'll be placing another order in the not too distant future. There are 10 of us here so mom and dad kinda ration them out like they do in the Army. And Happy hearts are probably better that K-Rations or MREs. We're glad that you all hade a good day. and, last but not least: HAPPY HONORARY BIRTHDAY STORMY.
