Remembering Sumo

Hi everybody. Paris Rain here!!

Today would have been the 15th birthday of my Unkkie Mo. He was mom's dog before I was even born. His mom was a purebred buff cocker spaniel like me and his dad - well we can only guess!

His birth name is GC Sumo Mutley. Or just Sumo. Mom had all kinds of nicknames for him: MoSu, Mo, Mosuvious, MoMan; the list goes on and on. Dad had a bunch of nicknames too, none of which I can say here.

Anyway, here is a pic of the MoMan one Christmas:

His hobbies included chewing on the antique dining room table, destuffing every toy and bed he ever had, chewing on mom's tennis shoes, and totally destroying our living room wall. Yes, I know he is an inspiration for all! Mom said he was the sweetest dog ever (hey mom!) and she still misses the Mo Man.

Today is also our GwamPa's birthday!

Hi Beautiful Paris,

Happy Birthday to your Gwampa, hope he has a day full of wishes fulfilled!

MoMan was one handsome pup.. in fact he reminds me of someone.. those handsome looks, striking colours, smiley face and pearly whites..

oooohh he looks a bit like ME!!!

I'm sure you Mom must miss him heaps, so please go leap on her and cover her in slobbery kisses and sugary love from me.. oh and rub her nose with your nose (make sure your nose is good and drippy first) thats what I do to Mum when she is sad.. always gets a laugh.. or she is so busy wiping off the nose juice she forgets to be sad.. either way it works!

luff n snuffs,

Ben xxxxx

Happy birthday Grandpa and Sumo. Mack I'm sure your mum truly thinks your the sweetest dog ever.


Stanislaw said...

What a smile that guy has! I'd recognize that cocker spaniel grin anywhere. Your folks certainly keep very handsome and beautiful pups in their company. They must have good taste... just as I do in girlfriends.

Happy Birthday to your GwamPa!

Mo sure sounded like a great dog. No wonder your mom misses him because he'll always be close to her heart.

Moman was a very wootiful pooch. I can't wait to meet santapaws this year, my ma says I will.

Thank you for pawing around my blog. I certainly like yours, and will add you to my list of fur friends. There are not many Aussies on DWB, but I don't see many of woo Bostons either!

My ma says she lurves Bostons, and also French Bulldogs, she thinks you and the Frenchies are 'so darn adorable', so she's just as excited as I am that you stopped by!

Tail Wags,
