365 Days & 251 Posts Later

It is my 1st Blogiversary!!

I asked mom this morning how were we going to celebrate my first blogiversary and she just looked at me like a dummy then said she hoped I would have some suggestions. I stared back at her thinking this hooman is suppose to have all the bright ideas and she is leaving this up to me! I don't have a clue mom, you said we couldn't have a contest cause we don't have the money right now for prizes, so I don't know what else we could do. Then I got kinda upset with her cause all the other doggies have contests or really cool pictures and stuff celebrating their blogiversaries and all I'm gonna get is a regular post. Geesh!

Mom could see I was not happy with her. I had that look I get when I want to bite her on the ankle. So she said, here, you can have these.

You LOVE treats and these look good don't they?

Heck yeah those doggy donuts look yummy!! Where are they for real? Are they in the kitchen? No?? Why are you showing me pictures of treats? I can't eat pictures!

Here. I got you this cute hat to wear too. Look, it has little doggy paws on it.

No way mom!!
I'm not wearing another stupid hat so you can take pictures and then laugh at how silly I look!

Well how bout you open your pressies then? I think you'll like what's inside.

Okay this is more like it! Pressies for me on my 1st blogiversary! Yippee!!

OMD! Look at all these toys! Wow-wee this is terrific. I can't believe you bought me all these toys. I thought you said we had no money for toys? How'd you get all these toys to fit in those little boxes anyway? Geez mom!! Do you think I'm stoopid? I know what's real and what isn't.

This is the worst blogiversary pawtay ever!!

Calm down Bijou. Your furiends are watching. Do you want to ruin the party for them? Now go sit down and I'll serve the doggy donuts and then you all can play with the new toys.

Mom have you lost your mind? That is not our house! I don't even know who those doggies are!! Why can't you just help me make a post like the other doggies did for their blogiversaries?

Bijou, just be glad you have your own blog and be thankful for all the furiends you have made this past year. You know there are lots of doggies who don't have a home or enough food to eat and here you are whining about not getting more toys, treats and having contests and pictures taken. You really don't need all those things to celebrate your blogiversary now do ya?

You need to remember the reason we began this blog. It was to document our search for your playmates. Remember, I made that flyer and stuck it up around town. Unfortunately even though we got a few calls, you didn't find any playmates. But what you did find is all your furiends here in the blogosphere.

Okay mom, I see what you mean. The past year has been totally pawesome. I have enjoyed making so many wonderful furiends. And visiting all their blogs has been way more fun than I ever imagined.


I know the next 365 days will be so much fun cause even though at times it has been hard for us to think of something to post about, all we have to do is go read your blogs and we find inspiration there. I love sharing the old pictures with you on Wordless Wednesday and Banjo pouts if he doesn't get to post his funnies for you on Toon Tuesday. And I hope to continue with the Diggity Dawg Game once mom has stopped spending all the money on our old house.

So I didn't get to celebrate my blogiversary in a big way.
Well that's okay cause I have lots of terrific furiends and that's what's important!

SEDONA said...

Bijou & Banjo,
What an accomplishment, a whole year of blogging! We, your doggy-bloggy furiends, are so lucky to have you in the blogosphere. You bring smiles & cheer with your creative posts & pics.
No party of contest needed to celebrate your wonderfulness!
You guys were one of my first followers so I have a special place in my heart for you.
Here's to the next year!
Your pal,

Twix said...

Happy Blogiversary, Princess! Gosh! You do such a wonderful job I thought you had been doing this for years! Next time tell her you want steak. So, from being one of your furiends, I can deduce that you have not even had B-boy for more than a year.

Bijou, you are such a good furiend to me and my mom. Thanks so much!
