Bart's Birthday Comment-a-thon!!

Yep!  Tomorrow's my birthday
I'm gonna be 7!!


  (She always captures my best side!)

So please help me celebrate my birthday weekend by leaving us a comment.  If it makes us smile, or BOL that would be great because this birthday is a little
bittersweet for me.  

I'm the serious one and Gizmo always had a smile on his face.  I miss him so much because there's no one to tell me what to do in the way that he did...


For each comment left today through tomorrow, Sunday, December 4 at midnight
we'll donate a dollar to
to help a furiend of ours have some surgery before he goes to his forever home.  


OK.  Off to do some serious smellebrating!
Have a wonderful weekend!!

I'll post pictures of my PAW-TY next week!

-Bart, Ruby and Gizmo from the Bridge

Happy seventh birthday Bart! I am wondering if you went swimming in your party hat, thus combining two activities which are absolute no-nos in my book - swimming and hat wearing that is!

Bart, trust me on this one dawg... you're lucky that somebody cares enough to celebrate your birthday so take full advantage of it. I hope you've ditched the dorky hat by now though.

Happy Barkday Bart! Seven years young ...I am 14 (we think) twice your age. All of a sudden, I feel old! Sigh ...

Your pal, Pip

Boo! Just wanted to make sure you were paying attention. Bawhahahahaha!

Sweet William The Scot said...

Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day.
Think about the memories of Gizmo
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are!
Happy Birthday Bart

We know how much you miss your brother Gizmo. We miss him too. But if you listen carefully, we bet he is sending you messages from across the bridge. You are so kind to want to help your friend and his surgery and we will cros our paws for his surgery to go well.

Happy Birthday to you, Bart, and to Gizmo too.

Happy birthday Bart! Seeing you, reminds me that I used to be black and shiny too. But I'm way older than 7. Now I'm black and dull. In more ways than one.
Have a great weekend!
Your Friend, m.

Happy Birthday Bart (and Giz at the Bridge!) Seven is a great age to be and if you were a person you would be 49 years old. Whoooo!

Rotties are some of my favorite pups and you guys really rate with me. Thanks for doing what you can to help the Chub along life's way!

Ali Zophia, my cat, is writing too, to earn another buck for Chub.
She changes her name like most people change their socks, so I believe today she is going by Ziva Zophia (she likes the girl agent on NCIS)

Happy Day to you, Ruby and Giz at the Bridge.


Whisppy said...

Happy 7th Birthday, Bart!

Jo's World said...

Meow Bart, Ruby and Giz at the bridge:

I am writing to wish Bart a very happy birthday. Do you get good eats for your birthday, like raw fish, shrimp, squid, that kind of thing. That would be paradise to get wouldn't it? All Stella asks for is doughnut holes with frosteen. Why, when there are so many other good things out there?

Meowing a Happy Birthday!

KB said...

Happy Birthday, Bart!!! We understand the bittersweet part. Our first two labs were brothers, littermates. One of them went to the Bridge when he was 2 years old...

But, before that, I played a great joke on the Runner. The two brothers looked truly identical, although we could tell them apart if needed. Usually, we counted on their collar colors to tell us who was who.

Well, one morning, when the Runner wasn't looking, I switched their collars. He took the pair out for a run, and was completely flummoxed when the wrong dog always came when he called the other one! He'd yell "Rover, Come", and the blue-collared dog would come rather than the red-collared Rover. The Runner eventually figured it out... but it was one of my best pranks ever!

The surviving brother lived to be 16 years old. I hope that you live such a long and loving life, Bart. I'm so sorry that you miss your sweet brother, Gizmo. We miss him too.

Honoring the special day of someone you love is something that doesn't just end...we still celebrate George Washington's birthday and HE left us LONG ago! So Happy Birthday Gizmo, may you look down and be delighted by this day and the good thoughts of all your friends.

And Bart, we wish you a "new year" that is filled with adventures, and friends, and joyful wonder, and good health and always, You are quite the boy to remember Chubs on this day. Bless you. The White Dog Army

Declan said...

Happy Birthday mate! Was gonna tell you something funny about me, but Mum said you might like a funny Rottie story!
Many years ago Mum found herself part time step mum to a wonderful male Rottie called Xerberus. She'd never met one before but he completely stole her heart. She says he was the most obedient dog with perfect manners (yeah yeah, whatever....) One day she took him to the lake and he went swimming as usual. Mum saw that he had found a car tyre in the water and as he scrambled out she called him over, thinking she could roll the tyre for him to chase. As ever, Xerbie came right away and as he approached Mum shouted the command "drop it" which of course he did, right on Mum's foot. It was then that she realised it wasn't a tyre, but a whole car wheel, which he had carried as if it was light as a feather! Mum spent several weeks with her foot in plaster. She can laugh about it now though! Hehe! Deccy x

Suka said...

hey Bart,

Woofs! Happy 7th Birthday! You look pawsome in your birthday hat! And sending Gizmo Happy Birthday wishes as well! He is with you in Spirit, and will be right with you celebrating your big day, since it is his big day too! :->

Such a lovely photo of you and Gizmo. Love the sweet big smile!

You have a super heart to help out the Big Sky Rottweiler Rescue and your friend. Hope my comment helps to assist Chubs and his surgery.

Pawty hard dawg! BOL!

dear Bart,

A Very Happy Birthday to you! i'm sorry i got here too late to contribute to the fund but The Typist has been very slow to visit other dogs-in-blogs lately. i think she may be getting too old for her own good.

i'm sorry to hear about Gizmo who didn't even turn 7. but at least you still have Ruby and it sounds like she loves you lots. i don't have anyone anymore now that Mr T has gone away.

i will return [when The Typist helps me]. until then, hugs x Georgia

Hi Bart,

I'll bet you thought I forgot, but I didn't! It is just that I live in a different time zone, so my human got confused and busy, and I can't type without her help.

Anyway I was thinking of you on the day and also remembering Gizmo. My human thinks that your idea of helping out the rescue dogs with that dollar stuff (based on the comments you got) is a lovely tribute to Gizmo.

Lots of woofs,

Jill said...

Happy Birthday, Bart....late!!! I am sorry that I missed it. I am so behind...So nice of you to donate to the Rottweiler Rescue!

A very happy belated Birfday to you Bart! I have some exciting new for you. My Aunt D adopted a 7 year old rottie girl so I once again have a rottie cousin! I can't wait to meet her around Christmas.
