Birthday Bash - Part 2

To wrap up the "tail" of my birthday, I will tell you about the games we played.  After all the doggies ran around and played, Mom called everyone together for games.  First, we did an egg relay race.  Mom has done this before with kids and a similar thing with me when I was a puppy at Puppy Kindergarten class, but we used a glass of water then.  Anyway, she also remembered that my pal Honey did it for her birthday pawty and she thought it would be so much fun, and that we should give it a go.  The humans had to hold a hard boiled egg on a spoon in the same hand that they had the leash to their dog and race to Mom.  If they dropped it they could pick it up, but they were disqualified if their dog ate it or it didn't resemble an egg when they got to the end due to it being squashed or something.  The second game was like Simon Says where we were all walking with our humans and then Mom gave the command to sit.  The last human to get their dog to sit was out and on the final two teams, the dog had to perform a down.  Congrats to my pal Hank and his Mom Christina, for winning the egg relay and to my pal Sierra and her Mom Colleen, for winning the Simon Says game!  They each got a very yummy bully stick as their prize.  The humans got peanut butter cookies. :)

Some highlights from the egg relay....check out Sierra totally eyeballing the egg...hehehe!

And she goes in for it, but luckily she didn't know what to think of a hard boiled egg.  She attempted to eat it, but decided she wasn't sure so Colleen was able to grab it.

Meanwhile, Dad and I were racing right beside of them.  Dad knew he better go fast with me, and we quickly took the lead, and Dad started celebrating!  Me, I was definitely checking out the egg...I know what those babies taste like, and they are GOOD!!

Here we are right as we crossed the finish line in first place in our heat.  However, I am ashamed to say that we did not win!  Do you know why?  Right as we crossed the finish line and were feeling quite good about ourselves, the egg dropped and what do you think I did.  That's right, I gobbled it up in 2 seconds flat!  What can I say, it was worth it....hehehe!  So, we were disqualified and Sierra and Colleen advanced to the final round where they put in an amazing effort against Hank and Christina.

After all the fun and games, it was cake time.  Mom had pre-cut the cake and just plated it up there.  Of course, I supervised and told her which piece I wanted. ;)  After all, I was the birthday girl, so I got to choose my piece.  Each of our humans spread us out and then gave us the yummy cake at the same time!  Delicious!  I'm already dreaming of what is to come next year!  I'm so happy I have a Mom and Dad who throw birthday parties for me!

Due to all the birthday fun, I didn't get a chance to tell you about playing with my brother Remi at Easter time!  We met up for a quick play date, and we even had an Easter egg hunt.  Mom and Dad do this for me every year.  Mom boils some eggs and then cuts them into 4 pieces and I get to hunt them.  This time Remi got to join in, and my Nanny was the one who boiled the eggs this year...thanks Nanny!  Remi didn't quite know what to do at first, but he ended up getting the idea and snagging a couple pieces of egg.  In this picture though, Mom was distracting him and he walked right over the egg without seeing it....silly Remi.  I think he is sticking his tongue out at my Mom and telling her to quit being the PUPparrazzi so he can hunt some eggs. ;)

He also gave me some really fun birthday/Easter gifts!  I got a spiral chew which I devoured, 2 kinds of treats, and this super cool yellow fuzzy guy!  Mom forgot him at my Nanny's though, so I have been lonely without him.  I will get him back soon!  Thanks Remi for my wonderful gifts...I LOVE them!

Also, I got a great gift in the mail from Darwin....some more pawtastic treats (which I tried to eat the whole bag) and a neato new toy!  Mom hasn't downloaded those pictures yet though, so I will have to show them to you later.  Thanks Darwin....I have been playing with my toy and enjoying my snacks...they are pawesome!!  :)  What a wonderful birthday...a girl can never be too spoiled, right!?! :)

Hi Nala,

Wonderful, wonderful post! Your birthday party looked like a blast - gosh, we enjoyed reading about it so much we felt like we'd been there. And we're going to pinch a few of your game ideas for our birthday we think, he he he! We had to giggle about your egg and spoon race - well, we bet that egg was super-yummy! Your dad looks competative though judging by that photo so we hope he didn't mind too much, he he!

What a great day you had. And we adore your new stuffie - we hope you get him back soon!
