Sweet 16 Opus and Sweet Pea

Today is Opus' 16th birthday. Since he's been under the weather a bit lately, it's going to be a low key party, held at Gracie's blog instead of Opus & Ollie's.

Opus & Ollie popped in for a short time yesterday and almost spoiled the surprise but quick thinking Gracie convinced him we're preparing for Socks' birthday. We hope Opus doesn't think we've all forgotten about his special day.

Because of Opus’ recent health, special attention has been paid to the food prepared for the party. Olive (left) is overseeing the cooks: Gracie, Karl, & our own Samaritan.

Surprise, Opus! Happy Birthday!  We're taking him a present, a warm blankie for the coming winter cold, but we couldn't wrap it because Percy and Cameron got into a shredding contest and we didn't have any extra wrapping paper on hand.   

Since you've all been given an invitation, go on over to help Opus celebrate his special day. This is the address where the party is being held - Gracie's blog.

Sweet Pea over at Mr. Pip's was very sick and had to be helped to the bridge yesterday, so we made a badge for him.. They lost Buddy less than a week ago, so this is a very sad time for them.


  1. Happy birthday. We do love parties and great graphics like these.

    Sorry about Sweet Pea. He was very pretty.

  2. Happy Birthday! Your so blessed to have another year to celebrate! :)

    So sorry to hear about Sweet Pea. We will give a toast her memory and share stories about Sweet Pea while all together today.

  9. That is quite the Opus pawty, I've been there and back a couple of times!

    That was so sad about Buddy, then Sweet Pip. Such a rough week for our pals.

  10. I was thinking the same thing as Momo! If that party was low key, then I'm a dog's uncle! ;) We dropped by and it was a lot of fun. xx

    We're so sad about Sweet Pea. :( It's terrible to lose two pets, one so soon after the other...

  11. Happy birthday Opus. Rest in Peace Sweet Pea. A day of memories and of celebrations to remind us that nothing is forever.

  12. Great pawty going on for Opus who is having a good purrday even though he hasn't been feeling tip top.
    It was really sad to see Sweet Pea go sad. We know that they are missing her like crazy.

  13. We went ta both the pawty and the sadness... Ying and Yang. Today an yessrday.

  14. Wow, what I see here does not look like a low key party, so glad it is at someone else's house. Happy Birthday to Opus you deserve a party but sorry you can't enjoy it like you should.

    Rest in Peace SweetPea. It's hard to loose furbabies in one year let alone in one month. Purrs and Prayers to the family.

    Casper, Cleo and Mom
