I double checked to make sure that it was actually my birthday and that's what the calendar on my mom's iPhone said, so I didn't understand why the party wasn't starting. I thought that maybe one too many screws got loose in my mom's mind or she was having one of her (albeit dark) blonde moments, so I decided to start playing. Maybe she would get the hint? I think I went through all of my toys until it was time for lunch. And then it happened! I guess all of your comments guilted her into making my food! I had my suspicions earlier in the week when mom was in the kitchen cooking AFTER dinner, so I stayed close to examine and supervise, but when I didn't get anything right away I had lost hope.

|I think this is my food.|
Mom packaged up 1/3 protein to 2/3 potato and veggies into 1/2 cup servings. I eat 3 meals a day so she'll cook this about once a week, I guess. I also still get a tablespoon of the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Salmon kibble each meal. YUMMY! Ok, looks like this birthday is turning around. Next up I got to open all of the other mail that was for me!
I received such great cards from Meredith/Scarlet (The Scarlet Sutras), Tiffy (It's Tiffy Time!), Zoe/Webster/Peyton/Liberty (A Day in the Life of Pugs), Fred/Pucia/Zuzia (Notes from the Bowl), and Sammy/Neko (Sammy and Neko), who also got mom that cool car magnet you see in the photo above AND this awesome ice cream cone for me!!
So now I was hopeful that there would be more great things in store. And before I knew it mom was stuffing blue berries in my mouth to calm me because Gammy and Gampy had arrived!
The treats worked great. I did get excited to see them and was a bit out of breath but nothing serious or scary for the peeps to deal with. Whew! That means I get to see them again soon. It was time for dinner. Everyone was hungry. I ate first (as it should be) and then everyone sat around the table enjoying fillet of beef sandwiches. I couldn't believe it when mom gave me a few nibbles of her beef. Talk about nom-able! Now she is getting the hang of this birthday thing. Then it was time for dessert, and it got even better! A trio of grain free cupcakes made just for me.
Three different flavors too. Apple, carrot, and carob...all with peanut butter frosting. I got a little antsy and jumped the gun during the picture taking. Yeah, I know you guys don't blame me one bit!
So after that little "incident", mom cut up pieces from each one and dad served it to me on a plate.
A fitting birthday treat! Now on to more presents! Of course, my attention went straight to Gampy. He better have remembered to bring the jet. Well, at least the keys! That's when Gampy pulled something out of his pocket.
|I look thrilled, don't I?|
Not funny, Gampy!! Not funny. It may say "Hawaiian Excursion", but there is just no way that thing is going to get us there. Sheesh! Guess mom was right about not trusting Gampy's wild promises. But if you ask me, I think he better go and buy a winning lottery ticket soon!
Well, that was my birthday. I had a ton of fun! Maybe by this time next year I'll have that jet and can fly all of my friends in for a party, pug style! Hehee! Have a great weekend!
PS. I almost forgot! Thanks to all of your kind birthday wishes on my post from Wednesday, my first Comment-a-thon was a huge success! We purchased a big bag of dog food for Wilma's "Stuff My Doghouse" project!
