We have two big birthdays coming up this weekend, you can see the invitation to our big bash at the end of this post. However, it’s not just our current two that have October birthdays. October is a special month for us because three of our late dogs also had October birthdays. In fact, that is one of the big reasons we ended up adopting Luke. He shares a birthday with our special dog Maggie.
Kobi was also born in October, though we never knew the exact date. We would celebrate his birthday along with the others. When Sheba and Moses were born (their parents belonged to friends of ours) we really hoped they’d be born on Maggie’s birthday (we had just lost her earlier that year), but they came two days before. It was still special. On another note, Cricket came home with us two days after Sheba and Moses were born, so that means she came home on Maggie’s birthday!
Thus, with Luke’s 1st birthday and Sheba’s 10th, we thought it would be a good year for a big bash. I’ll also be sharing a little more about the other three over the weekend, happy memories mostly!
Maggie – 1999
Kobi – 2000
Sheba – 2004
Moses – 2004
Luke – 2013

Gosh October is a big month at your house. Cute baby pictures.
Thanks! Now it will be quiet until June when Samantha has her birthday!
What wonderful photos – and what a super month October is for you! Wow! How exciting to plan a special birthday bash for Luke & Sheba! Big early birthday wishes and woos for them! Thank you for joining in our Flashback Friday! We hope to see more pics of your beauties!
We are happy to join in the hop, and glad you enjoyed the pictures (more to come, yes!)
We don’t always do much for birthdays around here, but thought this was a good year to do something special.
Love those puppy pictures! Looking forward to the party 🙂
Thank you, Sue!!
I guessed the birthday years right! LOL! Indeed, such cute puppies, wow, and yes, October is a month full of memories. And so this begs the easier question-which of your pups does NOT have an October birthday?? Cricket only? And was Shelby’s a different month?
Ha ha, good job, Lynn! As I said in Sunday’s post, we didn’t know Shelby’s, but it could have been October! But right now, Cricket is the only one not in October, but her “gotcha day” was October so that kind of ties it all in.

I loved the puppy pics.
Sounds like October is a great month around your house. Lots of reasons to celebrate.
Thank you. It sure is a great month, and we’re trying to make the most of it this year!

What adorable puppies they all were. ♥ I feel a bad case of puppy fever coming on now! ☺ Happy birthday weekend!
I know, too many cute puppies, right? Who could resist? Thank you!
I thought we were going to have to guess their birth dates and then you told us! LOL Good thing too, my brain is in tired mode today.
You didn’t read the fine print under the photo, Jodi. 🙂 I wanted you to save your brain power for guessing Luke’s weight tomorrow.

That’s a lot of birthdays! Maybe it makes it easier to celebrate all at one time! Love Dolly
I think it does make it easier, Dolly! Although we’re going to have a very busy weekend!

First, thank you so much for joining in with Flashback Friday’s!
Holy October bdays!!! I think it’s wonderful that you still tribute your lost pets birthdays as well. That is just beautiful.
I’m glad I went back up to look at the guess the birth year photo, because at first, I missed where it said it was just for fun, and I was actually guessing them LOL!!! Ah well!

Well, I’m glad you were going to play along! I’m happy to join in your hop, and I’m sure I will do so again.
It is fun to include the other dogs, especially Maggie since she was the one that started the trend of dogs with October birthdays!
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says
Great! I do hope to see you link up again!
Yes, I agree adding the other dogs as well is special <3

Of course she does! Who can resist all that puppy cuteness? 🙂

What a great month for some super Birthdays, I think Lukes weight is 53#. Have a great weekend (opps I guess I have to come back tomorrow to say this, I don’t know what day it is when on vacation, lol).
Aw, yes, must be nice to be on vacation and not know what day it is! You definitely want to come back to make your guess….because there will be some hints in tomorrow’s post. But you’ll have a week to get your guess in anyway.
Wow! October is a big birthday month at your place. It sounds like a big party event coming right up!
It sure is…we’re excited about all the fun we have planned!
