All Our Children Meow and Woof: My Mom Is Dim

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

My Mom Is Dim

Dear Mom,

For some reason you have it in your tiny human head that my birthday is June 12th. Well guess what. It's not. My birthday is TO-MO-RROW. The sixth. Not the twelvth. Yes, six plus six equals twelve, twelve is twice the amount of six, woof woof woof, but still. My birth only happened once. Unless of course you want to make me cupcakes on both days and then I will reconsider.

So you better get off your arse and start baking. I'm looking forward to my birthday cupcakes. TOMORROW.

With love,

to have a great day dude.

Love and Licks
Texas (and his humans).

Here's a little song I wrote for you (sing it to the hooman tune of Happy Birthday).

It's your barkday June 6
Time Mom started to mix
All of Finny's good pupcakes
Or he'll infest her bed with ticks
(You kind of have to rush that last line - but it works)

Viva La Finnegan! Glad you were born, man.

Goob love,
