View Full Version : Happy 1st Birthday To My Darling Darby

29th March 2007, 12:02 AM
March 29th, 2006 brings back many many memories for me and most likely many of you with me driving you all mad. I will never forget that day as long as I live, my little Ruby Boy was born. :lotsaluv:

The anticipation waiting for that phone to ring :blabla: with any news from my breeder was overwhelming. I remember feeling like I was going to have a heart attack, one Ruby born in the litter and then the wait began is he mine or is she keeping him.

End Result
He is mine. :flwr: :flwr: :flwr: :flwr:

:hppybdy: to you
:hppybdy: to you
:hppybdy: Dear Darby
:hppybdy: to you.

Memory Lane this little boy has brought so much happiness into not only my life but my families. He has so much spunk for life and at the sametime can be as graceful as his brother. But I just love him, he follows me everywhere I go. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

What a fat little belly he had.

Brrrrrrrrrrr sure glad I got a coat, it is cold.


I love snow, but my mom hates it.

You should know her by now, I sure do she just can't take one.

Thank you for looking. :flwr: :flwr: :flwr: :flwr: :flwr:

Wishing you a wonderful birthday and another spectacular year sweet Darby! Linda, I can't believe it is a year already!!! Looking back over his first year pixs is such fun. He is just the most gorgeous ruby. Katie especially sends him big sloppy doggy kisses. She also wants him :drivecar: to NJ for a visit!

Darby says woof woof (Thank You) for all the Birthday Wishes. :l*v:

I went off to the Pet Store this morning, it just opened. As promised I plan on giving the wee fellow a few Chicken Necks for his dinner. :w**h**:

I am real curious to see how he will react, he has never had one before where as Dudley would devour them. Dudley also has not had one in way over a year. They come in a 3lb bag and the darn things are all frozen solid together, I will have to try and break them up somehow without them defrosting. :crash:

I remember when I gave them to Dudley I used to go right to the factory and they were fresh, so I never had this problem.

Wish me luck with these necks, they are so good for their teeth.
When I fed them to Dudley he had the cleanest teeth since I have stopped they are not as clean. I will see how they do and maybe I will start up again and just feed them outside due to the bacteria with the wee ones.

I ordered the wee fellow a nice new crate or should I say his human brothers ordered him a new crate for his birthday. Unfortunately it won't be in until tommorow I am sure Darby won't know the difference. icon_whistling icon_whistling

How quickly a year goes by, as I recall sitting at this computer last year posting with overwhelmed joy and tears. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I was a complete mess. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Hey Sara:

Maybe we can split a box of fresh necks from the Oshawa Factory. ;) ;) ;) ;)

I bet Kosmo would love them, and as for Faith she would devour them. :yikes :yikes :yikes

29th March 2007, 03:26 PM
Wow! I can't believe he's already a year old!! How fun!! He sure is a cutie! :D

29th March 2007, 03:47 PM
Happy Birthday Darby!!!!!

From one beautiful Ruby to another Happy, Happy Birthday. Our birthdays are so close together. I was born in January 2006 and just turned one just like you. There are so few of us rubies around, we must really stick together. Again, happy birthday. You are so very very cute.

Bark On!

Wishing you all the best, Birthday Boy, and many many more to come!

Don't let your Mom drive you nuts - she's just a little foolish right now. :D I don't blame her; she has every right to be proud.

Love from my gang to yours -

29th March 2007, 08:59 PM
Happy Birthday Darby! :pi*no:

Love from my gang to yours -

Okay you are just as nutty as me, could you resist this face.
Oooooh if you would of known me last year at this time, I had gone off the deep end. But it was worth it, I got an email from my breeder today this is what she said.

I can't believe it has been a year!! I do remember your exuberance (to put it mildly) and I was happy to finally have a ruby boy available.


The poor wee fellow is sitting patiently waiting for me to take him for a walk along with waiting for his neck.

He didn't know what it was at first. :roll: :roll: :roll:


He took off to the dirt with it and then to the sidegate once he got the taste of it . :shock: :shock: :shock:


Okay this is really tasty, I like this.
Oh boy I hope I am gonna get another one.


This is him coming back for his other neck.


Of course I couldn't leave my darling Dudley out, who has not had a neck in a very very lonnnnnnnnnng time.


Sara it looks like I am going to be making a trip to Oshawa, are you coming. :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

Excuse the mess in the backyard, remember we are just finishing winter. :D :D :D

I am definetely going to have to get some snoods, quickly.

I think Darby enjoyed his Chicken Neck much more than he would of cake or any pressies.
My human boys are buying him a new crate, and I think I am going to be getting them a carseat. We will be heading north soon, and I will feel better if they are buckled in properly. :D :D :D
I do have carseat harnesses but they love looking out the window. :D :D :D :D

30th March 2007, 01:55 PM
Looks like you had a great day Darby! :flwr:

30th March 2007, 05:01 PM
