Stanley Turns 14

Despite a few recent health scares, Stanley has managed to reach his 14th birthday. 
He no longer stands at his bowl to eat. We feed him wherever he is laying down. Usually in our bed. And though a bit wobbly, he can still go out to the yard by himself. He is still a Master Roacher. Beatrice is doing her impression.
On a sad note, on the same day as Stan's bday, Lynne let Dip go. She was only a few months younger than Stan. I will miss hearing about her ruling with an Iron Paw.


  1. Happy Birthday Stanley from one 14 year old to another!!

    PeeEss - We will miss Dip so very much...

  2. Happy Happy Birthday darling Stan!
    Look forward to seeing you celebrate your 15th too.
    Thank you so much for remembering Dip, she was a little dog with a giant personality and she has left a huge hole in our life.
    Actually, she was quite a bit older than Stan, she was 3 months away from her 15th birthday and I was so hoping she would live to celebrate it.

  3. Happy Birthday Stanley. Hope you see many more.

    It's always so sad when we have to let one go. Every time I read of one going to The Bridge, it reminds of the sadness when mine have gone. Hope Lynne can soon remember her fur baby with a smile at all the happy memories. Sue

  4. Crikey Stanley ... Happy birthday, mate. Hope you had a great day. Did you get any ICECREAM. ICECREAM is compulsory on birthdays. ICECREAM in bed ... Wow .... Sounds like a dream to me. I didn't know Dip. I'm sorry you lost your friend.
