Ecstasy

Bloggie friends!

Now I could wax lyrical about how much I’m looking forward to the weekend BEFORE my birthday week (yay!) but hey, this is Blogger so here’s a visual showing just how it feels like to look forward to something so much. In writerly terms - I am showing not telling! LOL!



Charlie says: My birthday was on the 4th of July. I turned 9. Yes, the human forgot.


Have a brilliant weekend everyone!

Hi there,
When I returned after being away in British Columbia for five weeks, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star, acted just about the same as that dog in the video. I was really pleased that she recognised me and then she 'piddled' on my shoes LOL
Penny and shy and humble Gary, wish Charlie, a belated happy birthday. I note the Americans celebrate your birthday Charlie. What do you think about that, Charlie?
Take care and enjoy your weekend, eh :)

That's one happy puppy!
Your birthday is next weekend? We'll have to celebrate! And poor Charlie. Give him an extra mousie.

The human often forgets, right? Loved the video. Is it odd that I teared up a little? I'm such a baby.

RaShelle said...

Charlie, you gorgeous cat - Happy Birthday. And as for your human, well Happy birthday to you, too. =D

Repositório said...

Have a great weekend you too!

Tucker The Crestie said...

Happy birthday to both of you!

Ann Best said...

If you're like Jen, you'll be celebrating your birthday before, on the day, and for weeks later! Dear Charlie: We humans can be awfully forgetful. You have to forgive us!

Both of YOU have a brilliant weekend!!

I'm not sure if it is your birthday or Charlies that you are celebrating, but either way Happy birthday to both of you!!

Summer Ross said...

That video was way too cute! Thanks for sharing. Forgot Charlies birthday! Happy birthday Charlie- belated of course.

Brian said...

Happy Belated Birthday Charlie!!! Happy Early Birthday Mom!!! Love the woofie video!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

A birthday week is something wonderful to look forward to! I hope you have lots of happy celebration plans.
Was Charlie's birthday really the 4th? He doesn't look a day over 8! :)

Shawn said...

Thanks for sharing the video, the love of a pet is so amazing. As you title says, this was pure Ecstasy!

Lynda R Young said...

Charlie looks so impressed...
And that video was awesome! Happy Happy!

you're 9 years young Charlie!!!! yay

Rosalind Adam said...

Happy birthday. I do hope you didn't roll on your back in front of the house and show your stomach in your excitement too!

I also have an apology to make. I blogged about our cats last week. The youngest is called Charlie and I did the 'Charlie says:' bit but it was a take off of a children's TV programme and not a copy of your blog so please accept my apologies. Charlie says sorry too!

Everycat said...

Oh Charlie fella, that's not good is it. These humans, they are a bit like dogs and get so excited they forget where their tails are.

Thank you for your kind words and love for Whicky. We miss him very much

Shirley Wells said...

Love the video. Thanks for sharing!

Belated happy birthday to Charlie and early birthday wishes to you!

Have a great weekend!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Awww, that video was just so sweet. She certainly loves her human daddy.

Hey, we wished Charlie a happy birthday, didn't we? If we didn't, belated happy birthday, handsome Charlie! Your human had better make this oversight up to you.

Happy pre-birthday weekend, Jennifer! Are you taking next week off work? A friend in Montreal takes her entire birthday week off and treats herself to something every day (shopping, spa, etc.).

Clarissa Draper said...

Nine! Wow. You don't look a day over eight, Charlie.

That video almost made me cry!

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh Charlie and she forgot thats awful I hope you let her know. MOL I wish you a belated birthday my friend. we have a grandson bean that had a birthdday on the 4th too he was 18. Hugs GJ xx

KarenMcG said...

What a homecoming for them...love the way the dog jumps into the man's lap at the end!

Hmmm, happy birthday early, Old Kitty.

And Charlie, we're sorry you got neglected on your 9th birthday. On the 4th, too? Seems to us like there ought to be some really good "make-up treats" coming along.

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

awwwwwwwwww, Charlie, darlin' Charlie, we are soooooooo sorry we missed your actual birthday....but hey, better late than never.

Happy, Happy, HAPPY 9th Birthday, sweet and handsome Charlie......we love you bunches and are so thankful to have you and OK as friends.

Theresa Milstein said...

... A cat would never react like that. My cat is as dog-like as they get, but the best I'd receive is a few meows and brushes against my leg. And then she'd dash to the kitchen begging for food.

Happy birthday, Old Kitty! I hope it's wonderful, filled with love and presents and fun. xo : )

And happy birthday, Charlie. I hope you get a few stretches in the sunshine.

Hannah and Lucy said...

What a wonderful video of the soldier's return - his dog was so full of love for him. Happy belated birthday for the 4th Charlie we would have sent treats if we'd known. We hope you have a lovely Birthday Jenn and mum says have a few bevvies!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Manzanita said...

Oh, Happy Birthday to you both. You can have Charlies celebration with yours. I forgot Cody's this year too. That video is soooo precious. The camera voice said, she was about to cry. Me. too. That was so cute. Don't you wonder what the dog thought all that time he was waiting for him to return.?
Have that beautiful weekend.

Simon Kewin said...

Heh. That's a pleased dog.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

That was a wonderful video, Jennifer! Thanks for sharing it. :)

I remember your birthday last year. I hope you are going out for a posh tea this year too.

Happy Birthday to you and a late wish for Charlie!

notesfromnadir said...

Y'know, that dog kinda liked that guy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHARLIE! :) :) :) :)

notesfromnadir said...

Oh, & an early Happy Birthday to you, O.K.! :)

Madeleine said...

Birthday wishes for special you next week and Happy Birthday Charlie.
Great video :O)

Jemi Fraser said...

Happy late birthday to Charlie and early birthday to you!! :)

Charlie doesn't look too impressed with the dog's antics!!

Deborah said...

AWWW Charlie, I knew us Americans were celebrating the 4th of July for something big, YOUR BIRTHDAY!! LOL
Happy Birthday week to your MOM too! Have a great birthday and celebrate all week long OK?
xxoo

I forgot my dog's birthday this year and felt terrible for weeks. You and Charlie have a great weekend!

Life 101 said...

LOVED the video. And happy birthday to you!

Stephen Tremp said...

I don't like that look in Charlie's eyes. He may try to give you a gift for your birthday like a mouse or bird that he caught.

Talei said...

Oh, Hope you had a lovely birthday!! ;-)

Esme said...

Happy Birthday-July is a great month for a birthday.
