Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday to you...

Happy Birthday dear KLAUS...

Happy Birthday to you.

The family is all here - just like we should be - and Klaus we MISS YOU.

The little stuffed Airedale was from Klaus' ICU nurse Margie, who took such good care of him, Bogart, and I.

Bogart was entranced by the cake. And of course the candles.

Luckily he's not a counter surfer - so no worries about him jumping up and causing a ruckus.

Klaus and I, Klaus' parents, Bogart, mini-Bogart, and cake. All sitting with Klaus (cats hiding as usual). I think he'd like this - and I know he would love sitting on this fancy schmancy oven (so wasted on me with my lousy cooking skills).

Yes I did sing Happy Birthday to Klaus, and Bogart and I made a big wish. Actually we made two - one for something that while it could never come true it's worth wishing for, and one for a blessing from the big guy for our future. Blow out the candles, and then there was cake.

Bogart got a special slice with - of course - a B on it.

Bogart has never had regular birthday cake - and while I know it's not the healthiest thing in the world for him, it was important that he had a piece. And yes, he agreed.

RIP handsome husband-o...

We are feel that this was a lovely gesture and are sure that Klaus was there with all of you. The cake looked delicious. We are sure that Bogart enjoyed his special piece. The crazy old bat was surprised to see that she and Klaus share the same birthday. (6/4)


Happy Birthday Klaus!
I'm sure you are looking down from heaven, smiling because Bogart had a big piece of cake in your honor.

Hi Bogart - What a beautiful way to remember and celebrate your dad's birthday. I'm sorry he wasn't there to celebrate it with you. But then, maybe he was. I wish your wishes could all come true.

See ya!

Well we are glad you blew out the candles and made two wishes - you know really you can only have one..but there is no harm in wishing - what does the song say "if wishes were fishes we would all throw our nets in the sea!"

Happy Birthday Klaus. and Hugs and purrrss to you Lulu and Bogart!

I'm sure Klaus was there with you. He always is, even when sometimes he feels far away.

Stanley said...

Aw, Bogart!

Of COURSE you had a piece of your daddy-o's cake. As it should be.

Two goobs, one cat, and our girl are toasting Klaus in GooberStan. Incidentally, he shares his birthday with our girl's sissy, who is VERY cool. It must be a day reserved for peeps of the cool persuasion.

Goob love & smooches for you and your mama,

Such a bittersweet moment - but I'm glad that you celebrated Klaus... and let Bogart have some big-boy cake! Thank you for sharing the celebration with us.

Even though we haven't been around much, y'all are in our thoughts and hearts and prayers aqll the time.
Happy B day to Klaus.
When my Dad got killed, I also started wishing him Happy B Day on the date of his passing on to heaven and his new perfect life with no pain. In time, it made anniversaries of his death into a happier day to look at it in that way.
But it took some time, as it will with Mom's. And hopefully in time will help you with Klaus.
God Bless you, hon. And Bogey too!!!
Hugs Jamie(the mom) Sunny&Scooter
pee ess-I agree "{let them eat cake" sometimes!!!!!

Bless you, Lulu and Bogart.

Sorry we have been remiss with our blogging just lately.

You are in our thoughts nevertheless.

Sad times. Wish I could magic myself over and cook you something real nice on your fancy stove!
