Can you keep a secret?
While Duke is sleeping I want to tell you about a little surprise I have planned for him. July 30th is Duke's 3rd birthday so I'm throwing a little surprise party for him and you're all invited. If you would like to come to Duke's party here's what you have to do:
  • Add your link below
  • On July 29th show up on your blog with a post about Duke's birthday and link back to THIS post
  • You can do whatever you want such as showing a picture of the fabulous gift you got him. Show a picture of yourself, dog or cat all dressed up for Duke's party or maybe you want to bake him a special treat. The sky is the limit just make it about Duke.
  • On the 29th I'll post a reminder about the party with a link to this post so that you can mingle with all the other guests
(feel free to grab any picture I have of Duke on my blog if you want to use it for your post)
I do hope you can all make it, we'll have loads of fun.


  1. Can't add my link yet - linky's not open :)
    Will try to remember to drop by later! Sounds like a great party!

  2. I leave for the boat that day but I can do a post prior to leaving. So I'm in. I won't be able to give you a link to the post until it posts. Blogger is just that way. So I'll get a post done before next Friday. It should be fun indeed.

    Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

  3. Awesome idea Annie. I'll make sure to be in attendance!!

  4. How fun! How much are you going to pay me not to tell Duke?

  5. LOL Betty! I'm not sure how to link up things yet, guess I'd better get busy and figure it out. If I can't I'll still drop the cute little fella a fitting "present." :D

  6. Sounds like fun! I can not wait to see what everyone comes up with!

  7. Sounds like a fun pawty! We'll try and figure out something and we'll certainly come visit!

  8. This sounds like a lot of fun. I'll try and come up with something fun for him...maybe a play date with Koko and Yum Yum :)

  9. PAwwwwwwwttyyy :) shhhhh! not too loud.. Duke might sniff it out :D

  10. And while I'm thinking of it, you can get rid of that slide show. It's almost never there, I haven't use photobucket in FOREVER. I much prefer tinypic.
    It won't hurt my feeling one tiny little bit.

  11. Sounds like fun!!! Mom and I will be there with bells on!!!


  12. I have never understood back links, front links, linky dinks or whatever. As long as there are doggy treats and a nice swim in the pool, I'm Duke will have a great time.

    That's a marvelous picture BTW - his fur is so shiny and looks so soft makes you want to just reach out and pet him...marvelous!

  13. Duke party! So fun! Count me in!

    Now I need to find sexy female dog in bikini to jump out from the Birthday Cake...

  14. I hope to be around to attend Dukes party...just have to work out all the nitty gritty stuff!!

  15. Awww...Duke looks totally adorable in the photo ♥
    Only three? Awww...he's still a baby :)
    I'll be sure to visit him on his surprise birthday party!!

  16. Well aren't you the clever girl? *Laugh*. Sounds like fun - we love parties! :o)

  17. Audrey hmm I hope I did it right

    Sandee you don't have to link to the post, just link to your blog and then put a post up on the 29th

    Roschelle Duke will be so glad

    out on the prairie I've been looking at recipes for something special

    bossy betty how much will it take?

    Char linking up is really easy just click on add your link and follow the directions.

    Tanyia well I hope you're going to be there, Duke would miss his Aunt Tanyia

    Beaded tail Duke would love to see Angel, Isabella and Sadie

    Tahtimbo oh I'm sure Duke would enjoy that

    Anny it's ok I don't think you woke him :)

  21. What a great idea. I have to check my calendar I hope I can make it.

  22. WEll we certainly will be there. And we will do a post on that day. We will try to do all the linking up. We don't have the software to do any dressing up but we will figure something out. We will leave the cats at home and just bring the doggies.
    This will be great fun. Love the idea of the sexy dog jumping out of the cake.

  23. I don't usually participate in this kind of thing (I get confused easily) but I love Duke so much I have to celebrate his birthday! I didn't see a place to add my link, but you know where I live.

  24. What a fun idea!! Louis most definitely would like to R.S.V.P. :)
