Happy Birthday DH...and Amber (the dog)

Today is my DH's birthday. It is also our dog, Ambers, birthday too!

Lucky Amber gets to hang around the house. Lay (or is that lie) in the sun. Run around outside and bark at squirrels and other dogs. Go in the car. Go for a walk in the park. I think that Amber will have a wonderful day.

DH, on the other hand, had to go to work today. What's with that? I think that no matter what you do, you should be given your birthday off...with pay. Unfortunately his employer has other ideas.

I need to go pick up a special 'treat' for Amber...and Elle and I will go and get DH his gifts this afternoon (I would have gotten them this weekend, but 'stuff' with my mom, got in the way).

To my DH, and my doggie...Happy, Happy December 12th birthday to you both:~)

Happy Birthday, DH and Amber!
So, you almost had Sport on his dad's birthday.

I'm partial to December birthdays, for some reason.

Maybe DH would like a lay in the sun too.

Jodi said...

my husband's birthday was the 10th....

my boss gives me my birthday off WITH PAY. I'll remember that next time I am complaining about my job.

I am so happy that DH is feeling better and that life seems to be returning to normal at your house.

I wish I could lie in the sun and lick my....wait a minute, Amber isn't properly equipped...Hope everyone enjoys a nice stress-free day..BTW, if I were his boss, I'd totally give him the day off with pay. Amber too, for that matter.

Patti - DH really didn't want Sport born on his birthday...something about each person should have their own.

Meno - I think you might be right.

Jodi - When I was in college, I worked at a store that gave you your birthday off with pay. It was a nice gesture, and one I certainly appreciated at the time.

The Moose Buyer - Not as happy as I am:~)

Patches - Well, Amber can't lick her...oh wait actually she can, and if she had...um, well I know that is a touchy subject with you, but suffice it to say, Amber can be in the sun and lick whatever she wants...lucky dog! If you were DH's boss he would appreciate it.

Happy Birthday to your DH & poochie. I guess having them both on the same day keeps you from forgetting your dog's birthday like I do all the time. Oops! I don't think that she minds though.

Sorry your DH had to work on his birthday...maybe someone brought him a cake.

Happy Birthday DH and Amber. I hope it was a good one. :)

Happy Birthday to DH and Amber. Is it my imagination or are all the birthday's in your family in the fall? It feels like it has been one right after the other? Growing up it was that way in my family, only ours are spring birthdays.

Lynn said...

Renee - Having them on the same day is certainly convienent. The people at work bought him a chocolate cake:~)

Michele - I think they both enjoyed their day.

Marsha - It is not your imagination. Our birthdays start the beginning of October and end Dec 12. Whew.

Any chance you will post photos of the lovely Amber?? Nothing against DH, but yellow Labs are so photogenic!

Joan said...

I know it's a little late but please wish your DH and your lovely Amber very happy birthdays from me!

Patti said...

I had Kid One on my birthday, that's why I said that.
;-)

Lynanne said...

Happy belated birthday! Hope they didn't have to share a cake? :)

Lynn said...

Ralph - A photo of the lovely Amber is forthcoming:~)

Joan - Already done.

Patti - Now I understand. The truth is that DH really didn't want to have to share his birthday...the universe had other ideas...hence he ended up sharing his birthday with the dog:~D

Lynanne - No cake sharing for them.
