It’s not quite Wordless Wednesday. There are some big deals going on today that need to be celebrated. The French-born Chinese-American musical giant, Yo-Yo Ma turns 60 years old. Hard to believe the remarkably youthful and talented looking cellist is actually 60!
But then there’s another big birthday celebration happening today. ‘Supermodel Yosemite Sam’ turns 10 years old today. Sam was born on the Great Plains in Eastern Colorado but moved to the Mile High City nearly 8 years ago. He’s been with me making wonderful music ever since. Here’s wishing the music continues for a long time from both of today’s birthday boys. 🎼🎶🎵 Happy birthday, Sam! You sweet, goofball. We love you.
Live, love, bark! <3

Happy Happy Birthday sweetest Sam. Wishing you a great year ahead. Do I get an invite to the party? 🎂🎈🎈🎈🎈🎉🎊
Reblogged this on A Nibble – A Bite – or a Meal!.
Happy birthday Sam!!! Sorry we’re running late over here, the famous Japanese wind kicked up and sent our internet connection somewhere into Siberia! (it happens much more than I’d like) Hope it was a fabulous birthday, you still look (and act) like a pup so you’re doing something right. What’s your secret? Big birthday hugs from all of us over here on fantasy island.
No worries, Sam has no sense of time anyway especially judging by the amount of time it takes to walk this mutt as he’s on is sniff-fest! Hope the wind has calmed down. You only need a headwind when you’re coming home. <3
Happy belated birthday Handsome!! I’m sure mom made it special.
Thanks! You know very well, every day with these fur-kids is special. I’d love to come back from this life as a dog with a mom like me! 😉
Happy Birthday to you Sam! You look absolutely marvelous for your age; for any age actually. Coincidentally I saw Yo-Yo sitting with the Tonight Show Band recently. What a jovial and good natured guy he is for a long hair… 🙂 Have a great birthday week!
Thanks, Michael, we saw him too. Great sense of humor and quite charming! and then there’s that talent thing. Whoa. 😉
Sam we missed your Birthday 🙁 sorry sweetie…but you know you can celebrate as often as you like..Happy Birthday big guy..all our love and hugs Fozziemum and the gang xxx <3 <3

Aloha Sam and hauoli la hanau! That’s Hawaiian for today is “all the treats you can eat” day. Here, have a great, big virtual scruff and ear scratch from me and Max.
Many thanks for the Hawaiian birthday greeting. The virtual scruff and ear scratch was a bonus. Right back atcha on the ear scratch, Max. 😉
Are you throwing a pawty to celebrate??
Murphy & Stanley
Guys, everyday is a pawty around here! 😉
Happy birthday, Sam! Best wishes from two 8-year old cats who were born in Africa, now living in Australia. Neither of them has a definite birthday because they were both rescue cats, so their South African vet and I decided on the closest approximate dates. He wrote those onto their vaccination records, and I wrote them on my birthday calendar. Hope Sam has a fabulous week – birthdays should always last at least a week!
Wait, what…only a week? Doesn’t sound especially festive. We’re all in favor of birthday month! 😉
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday, Sam! I gave you the Blogger Recognition Award just in time it seems. Come look: https://noodle4president.wordpress.com/2015/10/07/blogger-recognition-award/ *ear licks* Noodle
Happy Birthday Sam! Sadly Benji does not have a birthday. I have no idea when he was born – or where, I’ll just have to create one for him.
You could do a “when we gotcha” day for Benji! 😉
Yes, that’s what I was thinking. Set aside the day we got him and that will be his birthday.
That’s exactly what we did with our 2 Old English Sheepdogs that we rescued. We called it their birthday and that was that. The dogs didn’t care one whit though but they appreciated the extra attention and treats that day. Then they expected it EVERY day for which we happily supplied it. <3
Oh! Yay! Happy birthday, buddy! May this be your best year ever. And may every year after be better and better!
Love and licks,
Thanks, Cupcake. Every day is a good day…some are just better than others. 😉
Happy birthday from four dogs whose human never remembers their birthday.
Thank you, we feel especially honored. But I know what you mean…now when are my kids’ birthdays again? 😉
Still has those puppy eyes and that puppy smile. Sam’s aged like a fine red wine – happy double digits!
Thanks for the well wishes. And he’s still got the devilish puppy antics to go with those eyes and that smile! 😉
What is this? You talk about one Yo-Yo and have a picture of another yo-yo 🙂
BOL! Couldn’t forget my fur Yo-Yo today.
You’re right but we’re not happy that Sam’s reached double digits.
I hear that, hopefully it’s ‘just’ a number and he’ll be around for a long time. <3
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday, Sam!!! Shadow, Ducky and I all hope you have a super, fabulous day; and that your Mom gives you LOTS of wonderful, special treats!
Woof, woof…thanks so much for the kind wishes. Every day is a treat day for Sam but today they will be extra special. 🙂
Happy birthday Sam!! You look SO handsome (and very happy!)! 😀
Thank you, he is a handsome and decidedly happy boy. 😉
Happy Birthday, Sam!
aaww Happy Birthday Sam!!! XOXO – Bacon
Woof (that means thanks), Bacon!
Wow, Happy 10th Sam! I hope you get some special treats today!
Everyday is treat day in Sam’s universe. 😉
oh Sam! You don’t look a day over one! Here’s to many many happy years, treats for everyone! Love, LeeAnna and Cole, your elder you young whippersnapper
Woof…Cole! (with thanks and respect for my elder-brethren) 🙂
Happy Happy Birthday beautiful Sam! Have the bestest day with a giant cake and hugs and kisses!
The treats will be flowing today, Easy. Thanks ever so, Sam sends woofing thanks himself. 😉
