Updated: Zaphod's No Fooling 5th Birthday Bash!

The big day is here! 
Happy Birthday to Zaphod!

Happy Birthday to those who share this special day with Phod, including Auntie K, and Cody.

For each individual fur pal who participated, Lady is donating $1 to the Ontario SPCA. For every comment made in the next 48 hours, Lady is giving 50 cents. 

Want to help more? Go over to Abby's site today and buy one of her mom's wonderful books. Her mom said she would donate royalties from today to our cause. 

Now sit back, get comfortable (because there are a lot!) and enjoy our pals, fooling' around!

Up first, your hosts, Zaphod and Hailey:

Next we have Sammy. In his youth a hobby was flying up and down the stairs as fast as he could. He would suddenly stop by hooking his claws in the stair and let his body swing to the step below. 

His mom says he has "the devil in his eyes" when he is fooling around! 

Showing off her bat ears is Daisy.

Madi is showing she can walk the walk and

scratch what needs to be scratched!

Becket and Keltic join us for both winter and summer fun (as good fellow Canadian dogs do):

The Blue Canoe Restaurant, Oromocto, NB
Swinging around is  Cupcake.

Our dignified pal Sully joins us in his chariot.

No foolin' the whole gang from have joined us!

Scylla is playing hiding and seek

Tiny Chimera with her toys

Fenris with a great stick (watch out, Phod may want to steal that!)

Socks is nipping out

Tuiren is enjoying a toy

and the yoga kittens, Yang is hunting crickets (Hailey says that is her kind of fooling around!)

And Yin is enjoying the jungle gym.

Christmas shared a picture from the first day he met his Lady:

Even making faces, it was love at first sight!

No foolin' around party would be complete without Frankie and Ernie in their tighty whities:

Bringing the Sheltie Smack Down are Lassie and Benji:

Lee's bestest boyfriend Easy shows off he pawsome destruction skills:

Lee can't help love such a destructive boy!

Ready to fool around with the ball by  pushing, body slamming and occasionally humping  is Sweet William the Scot:

There are no fools at the Idaho Ranch with Mr. Bailey, Hazel and Mabel in charge:

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

We hope Blogville's Mayorz, Murphy and Stanley, don't get people germs when they are fooling around:



All the way from Down Under we have Bella in her beloved river and

Phod can't wait for the ice to leave the lake so he can swim

a great game of chase with Roxy and Dui. 

Stopping to catch their breaths are Millie and Walter:

We think someone has had too many Margaritas! Our master bar tender Ruby joins the fun. 

The gang from Dory's Backyard are ready to fool around:

Strolling by to join the fun is Casey and 

and Jesse.
Jesse is doing a super job at tormenting Casey

Making sure cats are represented are our pals from 15 and Meowing:

Serious Snowball,

Chil-ax Joanie,

Millie, who seems to be miming something out,

Content Phoebe, 

Prancie (who this party may have woken up) and

Spooky, who looks like is ready for a game of musical mats.

Making a splash is Whitley:

Move over Beethoven - Princess Leah is rocking it out:

Two handsome devils join us Reilly and Denny

Ready to make a mess in the mud are Stella Rose, Maggie Mae and Gussie:

Going toy crazy as only a lady can is Lady Shasta:

Singing it from the top of the presents is Sully:

Best view of all the fooling around!

Dakota is ready to celebrate:

Happy from all the festivities are Ciara and Lightning:

Rita clearly has taken a page out of Ruby's playbook:

No dogs were drunk or hungover in this picture:)


Lady is embarrassed that she misfiled this picture. Sorry dear friend Bertie. Thanks for pointing this out!

So, from the submissions alone, you have helped raise $57  $58! Let's see how much more money we can raise with your comments:)
