Happy FIFTEENTH Birthday, Timber!

Our sweet fur baby, Timber, is 15 years young!

In celebration of his big day, he enjoyed a birthday assortment of goodies from Woofgang Bakery, as well as some new treats ❤

This is a milestone birthday for our little guy & we know how blessed we are to have him as an honored part of our family. We’ve seen a lot of change in him this last year, we can tell he’s slowing down but he’s still our happy puppy at heart. He has his ups & downs and we are loving him SO hard for as long as we are gifted him 🙂

Most days, this is how you find him. Lol! Totally snoozing it up. He’s the best for cuddles if you are wanting a nap. Little sir knows how to get comfy without question.

I love that he still sits like this when he’s relaxed. He’s done it since he was a puppy. We call it “bicycle handles” because his little back legs stick out just like them 🙂

Our tiny puppy who was our 1st baby is now our little old man and we wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s grown up with us & we’ve learned so much about life with him by our sides. He’s the best big brother to Liam & now he even puts up with a crazy kitty, too. He’s truly the best!

Happy 15th Birthday to our sweet Timber! I hope you feel all the love that you give us each day! Unconditional Love — You’re the best ….Cheers to another year ahead little one!!

XOXO

We are so honored to have shared these last 13 years with him. I have always said he is our ‘forever puppy’, and Stephen now teases me that I’m in denial that he’s actually a senior dog. My head knows it, but yes, my heart is having a hard time accepting it. We’ve definitely seen signs of him getting older. Even today, as much as I would love to treat him to a fun doggy day, he’s not well. We’ll be making a vet visit here soon. Hopefully, this is just a doggy cold & nothing major. Overall, we know that each moment we have with this guy is precious, and we will treasure whatever time God gives us with him.

He is, and always will be, a member of our little family. He loves us unconditionally, and we love him more than words can express ❤

The Aftermath {A Gingerbread Tale}

The story I am about to tell is true. No names have been changed to protect the innocent. The guilty party is the cute, furry boy below. Perhaps, he was mad at me for putting him in the santa suit??? 😉

Last Wednesday, I told you all about our gingerbread house decorating adventures from the weekend prior. If you didn’t get a chance to see our pics, be sure to check it out here. Let’s just say that I am SO HAPPY that we took pictures of Liam with his masterpiece that night because what transpired a few days later could NEVER have been imagined by us 😉

***************************************************************

Stephen stopped home for lunch on Tuesday…..opened the front door & saw a gingerbread masacre all over the entryway. O.M.G.!!

You see, we had to move our loveseat couch in order to put up the Christmas tree, and so it ended up underneath the bar {as you can see below}. When we came home with the gingerbread house on Saturday night, I put it on a glass plate and placed it on the corner of the bar {for decoration}. It honestly never, ever crossed my mind that our little stinker of a fur baby would literally walk up from the arm of the loveseat and PULL THE GINGERBREAD OFF THE BAR!! hahahahahahaha! I am sorry, but when Stephen texted me these pictures, I laughed so hard, I cried. I guess it just smelled too good to resist for him. Too much temptation for the little guy.

Miraculously, the plate did NOT fall off the couch. Also, let me just tell you that Timber is FINE ….he had an upset belly and went potty A LOT that night but I am sure he thought it was totes worth it 😉

This pic below is lovely candy cane stuck to my couch. Gotta luv it!

Stephen’s observations reported that a good majority of a wall of the house was gone. We had also put a ton of frosting on the roof and covered that with shredded coconut to make it look like snow….Timber did a number to that 😉 ….we think he also ate a half a candy cane.

The sweetest part of the story is that Liam wasn’t even mad when he found out later that afternoon. For a very short time, we tried to not tell him, but he’s too smart { and observant} for that. He quickly asked, “and, where is my gingerbread house” ….so, we were honest and told him the truth. He was more concerned about Timber having an upset belly and wanted to give him a hug. Such a sweet boy ❤

Oh, gingerbread house…..you were cute while you lasted!! I am sure Timber enjoyed how you tasted, though! Never a dull moment in Casademurphy, folks! We are definitely feeling the Christmas spirit around here 😉

Until next time, friends!

Happy Birthday, Timber!

Today, we celebrate the 12th birthday of our fur baby, Timber ❤

2011-07-13

It’s honestly hard to believe we have shared so many smiles, laughter & love with this awesome little guy. We are definitely looking forward to several more years to come of the same! To see a brief account of his story with us, you can check out his page on the blog HERE.

This picture below is from several years ago. His hair is much longer than what we keep it now, but he still LOVES to play outside like that on any given day. He is an avid chaser of lizards & squirrels 🙂

Although, he spent 9 years as an only child,  he has been the best big brother  we could ask for. These two really love one another….cutest.thing.ever!

And, he is one dog that is NOT afraid to get comfy. Hahaha! Most nights, you find him asleep on the couch like this before any of us have even sat down yet 😉
