It's My Second Birthday!

Birthday girl!
     WARNING: EXTREME epic cuteness, and HEAVY on the photos. Look at your own risk of squealing like a 4 year old little girl.


     Hi, y'all! OMD TODAY I AM TWO YEARS OLD!!!!!!! Yup, that's right; two years ago today the beautiful, hilarious, hoochie, crazy, whip-smart, gawjuss beast known as myself was born, and the world was completed. You're welcome.

     At only two years old I have:


  • 3 minions I rule with an iron paw.

  • Done dozens of reviews.
  • Gained more furiends than I can count.
  • Hogged the bed every night since Dec. 8th, 2010.
  • Helped Mom through the hardest time in her life.
  • Dachshund Mommy: And been the most incredible, evil, hilarious, loyal, loving and downright crazy dog I have ever owned.

                                                     the pictures all look so...wavy?


     There will, of course, be a PAWTY later this evening, complete with pressies, cupcakes, adoration, photo shoot, the whole bit. I'll share the pictures with you all tomorrow.

     It's also Diva Shasta's birthday, so head over there! Happy birthday, Shasta!

     Now, lets take a trip down memory lane. Or, in more simple terms, EPIC CUTENESS OF THE PUPPY VARITY!
