Birthday Fun

The momma and I are still absolutely astonished at all the Pitty Posts!  We planned on doing a recap today to include links to all of the blogs that participated, but it seems we keep stumbling across new ones!  So, we're going to spend this weekend making sure we have a link for everyone who joined in!  We've read all of them two or three times, and read every single comment for every post!  It's been so amazing to see all of the pitty love and we're so thankful for each and every one of you.

Now, aside from reading everyone's Pitty Posts, I'm sure you're wondering what I did for my special day?  Well, the momma and daddy-o took me and my foster siblings to get some ice cream!!!
I like my ice cream in a cone.

Eva enjoyed hers in a bowl, and boy, did she lick that up quick!

This may have been the first time Brutus has ever tasted ice cream... he savored every lick!

The momma was afraid Brutus might get a tummy ache if he's never had ice cream before, so he shared his second half with me.  Ya know, I'm the birthday dude, I get extra ice creams.

We think we made a good impression on the other humans getting ice cream.  But no one came over to pet us.  One lady had a Corgi/JRT mix who was going bonkers.  Me and my foster sibs just chilled, sitting all well behaved and the lady told her dog that he should behave more like us! BOL!  Yep, we're good kids.

He even gives me smoochies.... which is ok, I guess, in a brotherly sense.
Why does everyone like smooching me?

Also, I had my biweekly appt with Dr. Mike last night!  And... guess what?!  Wednesday marked week 3 of being yelp free, so Dr. Mike said it was A-OK to decrease my prednisone a little more!  AND, I don't have to go back to see him for another THREE weeks!  How cool is that?  Unless of course, something comes up.  And we did find a booboo on my toe that we have to keep an eye on.  BOL! Of course we found another issue.  What would a vet visit be without an issue?
Checkmark in the Handsome department.

Dr. Mike also put me on some Omega-3 fishy oils.  I get them in my breakfast and dinner to help my skin since it's gotten super dry and my furs have started thinning out -which is cool for summer, but I don't have lots of furs to begin with, so I'd be chilly in the winter time!  He said once we're done with my medications, my furs should return to normal, but in the meantime, the Omega-3 fishies will help.  Yum!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Wish my foster kids luck at their adoption event tomorrow!  And, Emmett will be coming over to play this weekend too!  Catch ya on Monday!

  11. Ice Cream yum what a treat. So glad your getting better. We love fish oil pills we give them at both meals, what a difference it has made in the coats, and has taken the dry itchy away completely. Hope it works for you.

    The silvers and more

  12. Sorry we missed out on the Pities Post event. We love pitties even though we've only met them at the dog park, etc. We have never known one as a close friend. We hope to have a pittie as a good friend one day!

    Your birthday outing for ice cream was outstanding. Now we know what to ask for!

    Your new fosters are beautiful! Good luck with finding forever homes, guys. Our foster, Mario, is still looking for the perfect fit.

    Excellent news on your last vet visit. You are still handsome even with the lack of furs...we can't tell in your pix.

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie, Mack and foster Mario

  13. We certainly love doggie ice cream in our home. Glad your birthday was wonderful and you checked out good at the doctor's office. Talk to the Greyhounds if you need coat connections for winter.

  14. Looks like you had a pretty good birthday! We go to the Dairy Queen for ours :-D Woofs from Jeffie & Rudy

    I Scream with your fosters. THAT makes it EVEN Sweeter.

    I Checkmarked the A PAW preeate box.. OF COURSE!!!

  16. Yes, a HUGE checkmark in the handsome department! I went to McD's for an ice cream today, but then changed my mind and got a drink instead. Kind of wishing now that I had the ice cream. bol

    I'm glad you're feeling so much better, Corbin! I hope it continues until you don't have to take any more meds.

    I'm also glad you had such a happy birthday.
