Well, would you look at that: looks like I DIDN’T find anything other than my birthday surprises to write about this week after all! Let’s just pretend I did, OK? I won’t tell if you don’t…

Anyway, as I mentioned last week, I was a little apprehensive about what “Rubin’s Surprise” was going to turn out to be because… well, he likes to pee recently. Mostly in places he shouldn’t, and by “places he shouldn’t” I mean “on the radiator in the office”.  When I turned around from my busy, important work today, though, and saw this:


I relaxed a little. I mean, I don’t think even Rubin would gift-wrap pee, although you never really know with him. As you can see, though, he’d gone to a not inconsiderable amount of effort here:


So I decided to risk unwrapping it, and here’s what I found:


Aww, books about doggies! He must have had to save up his pocket money for ages to buy those! And now I need to go and finish my work so I can read them…

  1. Awwww thats lovely!! I cried so much at Marley and Me in the cinema, as did EVERYONE else I know who has seen it, man or woman! Be warned, thats one for a warm bed with a box of tissues!

  2. love your blog! Rubin astounds and amazes again…at least this time it was in a good way. hope you enjoy the books.

  3. Our border collie saves up his bone money to give me gifts too. I always tell him that a card with his paw print would have been plenty. Posting under modified name so this won't be confused with your hubby, unless he loves shoes too!. Saw your Tweet about leaving comments under diff names so just thought I'd clarify. Cute pix!

  4. Ok, am about 10 years (read: a whole week) late because, well, suffice to say Virgin Media GAH! but happy birthday! Am super-impressed with Terry's surprises – genius!

    And is it me, or was Rubin extra-especially cute for your birthday week?
