Puppy love, plus the GRAND Social No. 146 link party for grandparents

Puppy love

I must share a secret. See, I have a little competition for Jim's affection:

Yep, they're best buds, Jim and Mickey.

Mickey doesn't typically pose for pictures. In honor of his best buddy's birthday, though, he was happy to.

Yes, today is Jim's birthday.

Happy birthday, Jim!

Here's a smooching pooch pic to underscore their puppy love (they didn't touch lips, I promise):

(Jim's gonna kill me for this. Not for the photos, but for revealing it's his birthday. He likes to keep his birthday a secret. He should know that's yet another secret that's simply impossible for me to keep.)

Cheers to puppy love and to birthdays!

GRAND Social No. 146 link party for grandparents

Cheers to the GRAND Social link party for grandparents, too. Let's celebrate!

Woot, hurray, yeah!

And thank you for joining me!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
