I had no idea so many exciting events occurred on August 1st.

It's still July 31st here, so I've been busy celebrating Harry Potter Day. Well not really busy, but I did remember it's his birthday.

My cat, Shaggy looks about as excited as Charlie sleeping next to me on the love seat.

Now Charlie we do NOT want you getting so excited about all those birthdays and anniversaries. Congrats to Jenn on her seven months. Well done. And we know Charlie, you were a huge help and that is why you have to take so many naps, cause you are just exhausted.
Have a great Sunday.

Congratulations on your 7th month of blogging anniverary to Jenn and Charlie - we like your blog very much. Is this the anniversary where you have to have a glass or two of wine Jenn??
Didn't know Battersea had been open as long as that - wonder how many dogs and cats have been through their gates.
We're pleased Charlie is managing a snooze again today.

7 months of blogging Happy Birthday-what a great way to celebrate and recognize the cat and dog home.

I am always sad when I am reading a good book and do not want it to end. I slow down my reading to make it last longer.
