7th Blogoversary.

It was 7 years ago today that mum helped me and Eric start our own blog. You can see our first ever post here,  and here are the first photos we posted the next day. We never for one minute imagined the blog would still be going 7 years later. I am sitting here thinking of all our happy and exciting adventures we have had together and all the wonderful friends we have made. We all miss Eric terribly and wish he were here to enjoy our Blogoversary, but we have to look to the future, and now I share my adventures with my mum and dad.
On a lighter note, some trivia.
We have published 1,903 posts.
Had 58,814 comments.
199,823 page views.
Here are a few more of our favourite photos.
Thank you everyone for coming to visit us.

We love the photos and the first post, and we hope you are blogging for many more years to come. Of course, we miss Eric big time, and we love the way you have a regular tribute to him.

HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY, Flynn. It was such fun reading all about how you started the blog with sweet Eric in 2006. The human says that 2006 was the last time we had a heatwave! Of course I don't remember that being a young whippersnapper! Keep cool, buddy xx

Seven years, eh? How time flies. And it was because of Fat Eric that you started blogging, eh? I haven't followed you from the beginning, but I check your blog every day now - and will continue to do so!

Kjelle Bus said...

HAPPY HAPPY 7th Blogoversary !
Me and mom are glad you are around :)

P.S It´s of course my mom´s fault that I´m late for your blogoversary.
Like it´s any excuse that she was in Gothenburg all caturday and went to Robbie Wiliams consert *sigh*

Kitties Blue said...

That photo from the back is so, so precious and adorable. Mommy and we have to say a GIANT "We'e sorry" for missing your blogoversary. Our 1st was on the 21st, and we got so wrapped up in that we missed yours. We are really embarrassed 'cause we love Flynn, loved Eric and love your blog. So, with no more blathering, HAPPY BELATED SEVENTH BLOGOVERSARY!
Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo and scritches from Mom.
