Woof woof woof woof! I’m 4 years old. Happy birthday to me, guide dog Fletcher.
My celebrations started early. Just before 4am.
My humans were silly. They decided to put a new cover on my bed the night before. But it was too stiff and I couldn’t get to sleep properly. I woke up early needing to do a wee wee mail and let Fiona, my fabulous human, know that I needed to go out. Fiona thought it was 6.53am and not 3.53am which was the actual time. So I ended up getting an early breakfast as well. Pawtastic!
Fast-forward a few hours (after my humans went back to bed briefly) and my birthday celebrations started in earnest.
Woof, what’s in this box? It smells pawsome.
Turns out it was cake for my humans to celebrate me turning four. Did I get any? No. Apparently I wouldn’t like it. I want to know who barked that nonsense.
Well, at least, I had Barney bear to play with. He’s my favourite toy. You can just make him out in the photo below.
I like to nuzzle Barney (I’m very gentle with my toys and still have a few from when I was a puppy).
Time for a second breakfast. I got some yummy food in this extra large red Kong toy. It didn’t last long. Here’s a little video of me wolfing down my food. It starts in normal speed then goes into slow mo mode. You have to Go to my Twitter account to see my video of me with my Kong (you don’t need to be on Twitter to see the video).
Then I got a new toy. Fezzy the pheasant. Wooftastic.
Now the next bit was rather confusing. My human friend Ness wished me happy birthday over the phone. She told me she had a present for me and I heard something squeaking away. But where was it?
Then I went for a walk in the Autumn leaves. All those amazing smells and impawtant messages to catch up on. Could this birthday get any better?! Oh yes. Time for a snooze…
Woof and paw, guide dog Fletcher.
P.S. Some of you will remember that last year I spent my birthday in the charity Guide Dogs’ hospital block recovering from my back surgery. So this year’s birthday was extra special as it was at home with my humans.
