H is for Happy Birthday! Today's my 5th! But it's more than that. Now that I am a maturing pup, I guess I can tell you my real name. It's Stamper H. Clemmer. You can scroll down for today's card or you can read on. 🙂
Why the H? Many wouldn't understand. It stands for Howard – Ann's Dad's name. He's been gone a long time, but when he was alive, he'd come here to Northern California to visit. He was a fun, funny guy & everyone loved him – much like me.
He used to tell my predecessor, a West Highland White Terrier named Johnny Walker, that when he died, he wanted to come back as Ann's dog. I would think it's because Ann treats me pretty good & Howard thought that he'd get treated pretty good too. Maybe that's why Cecil made Ann wait 5 years before replacing Johnny.
Ann thinks that my personality is a lot like her dad, Howard. Even before Ann realized this, she named me Stamper Howard out of respect & admiration for her dad. I have a pretty big rep to live up to even though there's one major difference between me & her dad. I'm less humble. Most Jack Russells don't even know what that means so that should tell you how smart I am.
Here's my birthday card from Lynda. I really like her focal point, don't you? I think she should sell cards just like this. It would put Hallmark out of business!
I'm off to sing myself into nap time. Go ahead & call me. I can always sing myself to sleep again but I can't always talk to YOU!
