Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!

Our pals the Zoolatry girls and Amber daWeenie have given us a challenge for today:


Dr Seuss is one-hundred and eight
and Amber said, "that's really great",
and Zoey replied, "if truth be told,
I purrsonally think that's awfully old!"
Won't you join all us cats 'n' dogs on
Friday, March 2
to remember the wit and fun of Dr Seuss!
Post your funny picture ~ write a silly rhyme,
whatever you do ~ will be just fine!
Grab a badge,
they're right below,
then get ready, get set
and go!

We're happy to take the Challenge!  Happy Birthday Dr Seuss from the Florida Furkids and Cousin Trooper

Happy Birthday Dr Seuss

Here's Dr Seuss's own Birthday poem!  We're not sure what book it was in, but we found it and thought it was purrfect for today.

Happy Birthday To You!
“If we didn’t have birthdays,
you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you do?
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
hard green tomatoes.”
“Or worse than all that…Why,
you might be a WASN’T!
A Wasn’t has no fun at all.
No, he doesn’t.
A Wasn’t just isn’t.
He just isn’t present.
But you…You ARE YOU!
And, now isn’t that pleasant!”
“Today you are you!
That is truer than true!
There is no one alive…
…who is you-er than you!
Shout loud, “I am lucky
to be what I am!
Thank goodness I’m not
just a clam or a ham
Or a dusty old jar of
sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am! That’s a
great thing to be!
If I say so myself,
