First, thanks for all the wonderful birthday wishes from everyone! I was so thrilled every time Mom would read me new comments on my birthday post
! Thanks everyone!
Since Mom has been 'busy working' (something about 'consenting patients' - whatever THAT means - some times I think she makes this stuff up; she says it has to do with getting permission to access patient data, so maybe she's not making it up, but you never know...
) she wanted to wait until the weekend so my birthday could be more properly celebrated. If waiting a bit means more goodies for me, then it's all good!
We started off the morning with a walkie. (No photos, as Mom "didn't have her act together"...)
Then we headed off to doggie class for funballs times!
|Check out my awesome 'down and stay'!|
|Silly young pups!|
Abby spent a fair amount of time socializing with the spectators...
|"Hi! My name is Abby. Do you have any treats?"|
|Why does Abby look so much bigger than me in this photo?|
|See what a good dog I am, while my sister tries to escape?|
After doggie class we stopped by the Magic Cheeseburger Window!!! (Alas, no photos of the actual Magic Cheeseburger Window, as it was raining quite hard, and Mom didn't want the camera to get wet. But trust me, even with the rain, it smelled great!)
And when we got home it was time to have the Birthday Cheeseburger!
|Nom! Nom! Nom!|
And being the Great Sister than I am, I (of course) shared the cheeseburger with my sister!
|Watch your fingers, Mom! (Just kidding! Neither of us takes off fingers when we get treats!)|
After the cheeseburger (and the appropriate amount of rest time so we didn't have digestion issues), we went out for some Frisbee Time!
Mom was trying to get some 'discus' photos for the Blogville Olympics
but the sky was getting cloudy and rainy again, so we'll have try again, tomorrow. Still, we had fun frisbee times, and I got to play tug-o-war with Dad!
Abby and I also engaged in some bitey-face (as is the custom after Frisbee Time).
After a much-needed nap, Mom made 'birthday bones' - sort of mini birthday cakes in a muffin tray. (Peanut butter-carrot cake, if you are curious, and fit for human and doggie consumption.)
And then Mom frosted them (with cream cheese and peanut butter), and put on my birthday candle!
|Mom blew out the candle for me, but I wished for world peace and bully sticks for all!|
And then, of course, we had to have some birthday cake!
And, of course, Abby got some, too!
You might think these photos look an awful lot like the cheeseburger-eating photos, and you would be right, except here we are eating birthday cake!
Then, finally, Mom broke out the
birthday hat. You would think that as a present to the birthday girl, the non-birthday girl would have to suffer the humiliation of wearing the hat, thereby making the birthday girl (me) not feel like a fool with this silly hat on my heat. But apparently Mom doesn't agree with me. And if I used that logic, I'd have to wear it for Abby's birthday, so nevermind. Besides, Mom did buy us a cheeseburger and make me bone-shaped muffin cakes!
|There, I've got it on. Are you happy now?|
|Okay, fine. Another one for posterity!|
Heehee! Mom was happy that I wore the hat, so I guess it was wasn't too awful! It was a Most Excellent Birthday, and well worth waiting a few extra days for the big celebration! (Although I am looking forward to Abby's birthday when I will get my part of a cheeseburger and cake without having to wear the birthday hat! Heehee!
