Today is Bitsy’s Birthday!

I’m never too busy to say

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Bitsy!  She’s 15 today!

Oh my goodness I love her so much!

She’s gray, deaf, and has a few more scars, but someday we’ll  be just like her.


We won’t have a button on our backs!

Happy Birthday Bitsy Button Sutton!

Go ahead stand in the grass and bark to have me carry you inside.  I don’t mind at all!

You’ve earned it!

XXX OOO  from your mom!

  • Nancy C. in Utah - Bless her little heart and cute buttoned bottom. Happy Birthday Bitsy. Like your mom says, it is perfectly okay to make her carry you…after all, if she were YOUR age (105 in doggie years) you would probably be pushing her around in a wheel chair, shouting at the top of your lungs so she could hear you barking. Anne, your a very good mom!!! Hugs to you and Bitsy both, plus a birthday scratch for Bitsy. Ummmm, about the ‘deaf’ thing though…my Friskie is deaf as a stump, but it’s the strangest thing…she can hear a single cheerio hit the kitchen floor from the other end of the house when she is sound asleep. So watch for those tale, tale signs that some selective hearing could possibly be involved here, LOL.ReplyCancel

  • AnnieO - Wow, that’s a senior doggie! Does she get discounts at the pet store, LOL? How lovely she’s been your beloved companion for such a long time. Happy Birthday, girl!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy C. in Utah - Oh my goodness Anne, I’ve made a TERRIBLE mistake!!! I ordered 3 spools of the Cosmo Multi Work Embroidery Floss in Redwork Red to do my Snowbound blocks with…I received the thread today and have been sitting here stitching for about an hour and I already know I won’t want to stitch with any other floss ever again!!! It is like stitching with silk, my stitching has never looked so straight and even…I mean, seriously, what is a girl to do??? I have two baskets, yes I said baskets and they are not small either of DMC floss. My gosh, I don’t start drawing my retirement for 2 years so the entire collection is out of the question. ***sigh*** this was a serious mistake Anne…but I’m sooooooo glad I made it, LOL. It is heavenly to stitch with. Though I will still be using my DMC for the pastels I need for my Helen Stubbings “Nice People, Nice Things” stitcheries along with some others that aren’t redwork, until I can order more. BUT, when I can, probably after the holidays, I will be ordering at least a few pastels to work with. In the mean time I will be spreading the word to any of my friends that stitch…Cosmo is the only way to go! Hugs… OH, and thanks for the taffy, yum!!!ReplyCancel
