Mom AND Dad Day!

Today is a special day! If it wasn't for today, I probably wouldn't be here blogging right now. How scary is that? Today is mom and dad's Anna-versary!

Mom and dad have been together forever, especially in dog years. They started dating 13 years ago today. Then 10 years ago today dad gave mom something shiney and they were "engaged". Then NINE years ago today they said "I do!!"

The only thing older than mom and dad's anna-versary is Simon. He was around before dad. Dude he's old!

Their tale of their beginning isn't too romantic. Apparently, they dated in high school, then dad dumped mom!! Bad! Bad Dad! Mom went off to college in Auburn, and she came home one summer, saw dad at the firestation, she stopped, he asked her out and mom thought " noms for the summer, I'm in!" (Mom is wise beyond her years, free noms rule! I know where I get my nom love from now.)

Thirteen years later here they are! Sadly, dad has to work today, but that's okay. I'll keep mom company on her anna-versary.

Last night we got some MAJOR rains! Yay!! It even knocked the power out for an hour. I laid on the loveseat, Duncan nomed a bully stick and mom and dad talked about their last nine years by candle light. So I guess it was pretty romantic. But we were all glad when the air came back on!!

PS. I'm having trouble leaving comments on some of your blogs. I leave one, then it makes me sign in, then does it over and over again. What the crap?!?!


  1. What an interesting story about your mom & dad. Well, Happy Anna-versary to them both! And I hope Blogger will stop being a big pain in the tush!

  5. Happy Anniversary to your mom and dad! June must have been a popular month for humans to get hitched, because my mom and dad celebrated their anniversary this month, too. The best part was that we dogs all got to go with them for their romantic picnic!

    Blogger had some kind of melt down a month or so ago and since them, some pups have been having that same problem. Sometimes clearing your browser cache will help, sometimes logging out of blogger and then logging back in helps (although we got locked out one day doing that) and sometimes it's related to how the comments are set up on the blog you're trying to comment on. If our blog (which isn't on Blogger) gives you trouble, be sure to let us know so we can try to figure out what's wrong!


  6. Happy Anna-versary Anna Banana's paw-rents :)

  7. Yup, while you woz MIA (Mom In Argentina, or wherefur) Blogger woz being a DOODYHED fur real. Then it got fixed and now it sometimes be a doodyhed whenefur it feels like being one.

(And I has gonna copy this commenty in case Blogger noms it so I dussn't has to think it up all ofur again.)

  8. Happy Anna-versary to your mom and dad!!! That is so great!!! We hope they do something really special when he is off from work!!

    We had lots of problems signing in about a month ago and had to download firefox before we could get anything to work right. It was really aggravating...we would sign in and then have to sign in and then it would say we were not allowed! Hope you find a solution to the blog blah problems as I called them! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  9. Bunny gave you a good summary of blogger woes - hope they get it all sorted out soon.

    Happy, happy anniversary to your Mom and Pop - they make a beautiful couple.

    Happy Anniversary to your dad and mom!

    It seems this is a popular wedding month as my pawrents have been attending a few wedding this month, and there is another one coming soon.

  11. It's always fun to hear how people find each other - especially a 2nd time around. Congrats on the rain. We had some a few days ago and it was pretty violent, too!

  12. Happy Anniversary to your special humans!! Great story, and kinda romantic to be having a candle-light memory session...even when storming out :)

    Sweet hugs,
