    Oberon's 18th Birthday

    Today my beautiful Shih Tzu Oberon of Midsummer's Night is eighteen years old. I honestly never thought he'd make it. On both his sixteenth and seventeenth birthdays I was sure we were celebrating for the final time, but today he proved me wrong!

    Although he's very frail, you'd never know it from the sound of his bark when he's demanding something from me! He's still mentally with it, and also (thankfully) accident free.

    This morning, he woke me up at 5:30 to tell me it was time to go out. We took our walk, I brushed him and took his birthday pictures, then he had his breakfast and went back to bed. (I think he's still mad at me for giving him a bath last night so he'd be fresh for his big day.)

    I'll upload some pictures if I can figure out how to put them into a thread. Now to go bake his cake!

    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!


    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    He's thought he could vote for years, he always thinks he gets to call all the shots around here.

    I haven't had time to try to upload pictures, and I have to go out tonight, I'll try to upload some pictures in the morning!

    And thanks for all the good wishes, it's been quite a journey the past three years as age began catching up with him.

    Hopefully I'm getting this right - here are Oberon's birthday pictures ...

    The first is Oberon two days before his actual birthday; we're at my parents' house; mom made a cake with 18 strawberries instead of 18 candles. The next two are taken at about 6:00 am on his birthday. The next is Oberon at six weeks old, and the last is of Oberon chilling with 13, my other Shih Tzu. They get along fine now but Oberon wasn't so happy when 13 first arrived two years ago!

    What a handsome boy you are, Oberon - and of course 13 too. I don't know how your Dad keeps up with maintaining your long hair - it's quite a chore - and I can tell that he is doing a great job. I elected to keep Sparky's short!

    Hope you enjoyed your birthday - and that yummy looking cake. Do you like strawberries?
