Celebrating Jeffie | Throwback Thursday

Jeffie at 9 weeks old

Since I've been taking a trip down memory lane lately, I thought I should definitely join the Throwback Thursday blog hop today.  However, when I looked to link up, it seems that blog hop is no longer happening!   Timing is everything and mine has been off lately.

I'd originally planned to link up with the Barks and Bytes hop and announce my April For Love of a Dog giveaway.  Just didn't get that blog post written or the rafflecopter set up.   Dog gone it!  Like I said, timing is everything.

So, I'm sticking to memory lane.  Take a short walk with me and enjoy my birthday boy, Jeffie.

Jeffie's first toy of his very own.

My sweet Jeffie is celebrating his 8th birthday this week and the time has gone by in the blink of an eye.

Jeffie's first visit to my studio.
Jeffie loved tennis balls!
You can read about how Jeffie was a Cush Dog, how we adopted him and how he and I enjoyed many sunrises together here.  You'll also finds lots more Jeffie puppy photos there, too. 

Last year, Jeffie inspired a special birthday limerick from the great and power poet, Oz!  Change the birthday years and it still rings true.

Happy Birthday to Jeffie the Retriever mix!
He turned seven this month, not six.
Though he hates change of any kind,
being one year older he doesn't mind
as he knows an old dog can still learn new tricks.
Jeffie is all smiles about his birthday this year.

Be sure to stop by on Monday to enter to win a piece of For Love of a Dog jewelry!

Talking Dogs is the official blog of For Love of a Dog Jewelry.

I'm joining the Barks and Bytes blog hop today hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Heart Like a Dog  Grab the badge and join in the fun!


  1. Thanks so much for joining the hop! Jeffie was such a cute puppy. 8 is a milestone birthday as Thunder knows

  2. The one downside to digital is it is easier to lose photographs. We ended up losing some of Bailey's baby photographs and I miss going back and seeing those early stages.

  3. Happy birthday, Jeffie!
    What a cute pup you were!

  4. Aww! Such adorable puppy photos! Happy Birthday, Jeffie!

  5. Glad you stuck to memory lane and we get to enjoy those puppy pictures of Jeffie...what a little bundle of fluff.

  6. I am totally LOVING this celebration of Jeffie's birthday!!! Fabulous!

  7. Oh I can't stand the fuzziness!! What a cutie Jeffie is and such an adorable puppy. I think it's good to visit memory lane now and again. My mom had a photo of Sampson as a puppy and just looking at it and it all came flooding back.

    Thanks for joining the blog hop!!

  8. Happy Birthday, Jeffie! I will be eight in the fall, let me know how it is being eight! I bet it will be even better than seven! What a cute pup you were!

  9. Oh Happy Birthday Jeffie!!!!!! Celebrations all around today!!!!!! Have a great day!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  10. OMD - he was SO cute!! Love that first toy pic where you can see his "heart" starting to come in! Happy happy birthday, you handsome boy!!!

  11. Happy Birthday, Jeffie! Oh, he was so adorable. He looked just like a golden retriever when he was a puppy (he's a mix, right?).
    That Throwback Thursday hop has been kind of hit or miss lately, on some weeks but not others I think.

  12. Jeffie you were a cute little guy and now you are a handsome man. I hope you have had a fun Birthday celebration with many more to come.

  13. Jeffie looks dashing all grown up ;)

  14. Sorry about the #TBT blog hop! We haven't been having it every week so it makes it hard for others to join! Jeffie is adorable happy birthday belated!


Go ahead... bark at us!
