Birthday Bash - Part 1

Turning 4 sure was GREAT!  I got a birthday cake for the very first time!  Yes, I always get lots of yummy food on my birthday, but I have never had an actual cake until this year.  Mom made one using a recipe from the Three Dog Bakery cookbook that her friend, Katy, gave to her.  Thank you Katy!  Mom changed it a bit though by personalizing it with my name. :)  All I can say is CREAM CHEESE FROSTING...YUM!!!  We shared with all of my furiends at the pawty.  Hank and Ozzie gulped their piece down in one bite, I wasn't far behind them, Sierra took hers off to the side to eat it in a safe place, and Marlin took his sweet time and savored every bite. :)  It was quite funny how we all ate it so differently.

The weather turned out to be PAWtastic!  Mom's cheeks even got a little rosy...she should have put some sunscreen on.  It was also the first time that there was NO wind on my pawty day!  It's usually very windy here in spring and the non-windy days are treasured. 

We even attempted a couple of group shots!  Dad was in this one...he was the only boy there. (human boy that is)  What a good sport he is.  I love my Dad! 

This was the best one we got...hard to get a bunch of doggies and humans to look at the camera at the same time. :)  It was fun and entertaining trying though.

That's it for now, next post I will tell you about the games we played and show you the special pressies I got from two of my furiends!

Happy Birthday, again Nala! I KNEW you would have a pawsome party - you always do! :-) Wish I could be there to join in the celebrations with you but will just have to enjoy it through your posts!

Yes - I also thought it was funny how all the different doggies ate my cake differently at my birthday party last year...although the winner had to be Cinnamon the Beagle - for her size, she was practically JAWS!! HA! HA! HA!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

WooWoo!! Happy, happy Barkday Nala!

Mommy said to tell you to go light on the cream cheese cause the fat can cause problems with us poochies livers. She gave me too much of my (BabyRD)B-day cake and my liver enzymes shot up!!

Sorry we're late...you know the story. We made it to our cabin on Wednesday. (you asked where we live:We are near Sandpoint,in farrr N.Idaho...& you are in Eastern Washington??) Our sissy (hooman) lives in Seattle.Maybe some day we can get together!

Looks like a ton of fun. Wish I could have made it over. Drat! Mom hopes to have a little gathering for my 1st B-day...and we'll probably have the same cake, since I liked it so much at Darwin's bday. Hope you got lots of goodies and such for your bday!
