Cleaning, Shmeaning

Mom, I know you are trying to clean the house, but it's time for my nap.
You don't mind cleaning around me, do you?

Pictures with Santa!!!!

It seems a little early in the season, but . . .

Santa is coming to town!
!
Again!


I'm still not sure who this "Santa" guy is, but he can't be all that bad. I mean, he dropped off all sorts of goodies for me last year. Anyone who brings me a Chuck-it flying squirrel and Kong frisbee is a friend to me!

Anyway, this "Santa" guy is going to be at both Federal Hill Park and the Canton Dog Park tomorrow morning from 10am to noon for "Pet Photos with Santa." Now, how he can be at two places at once is weird, but hey!: if he can pop down my chimney with a bag full of gifts, I guess he can do anything.

Last year, our holiday card (featuring me!) was a big hit, so my mom wants to take another Santa-tastic picture this year.
It is kind of fun meeting the "Mr. Santa" himself. But hopefully my Mom doesn't make me wear antlers again. I sort-of looked like Max from The Grinch Stole Christmas last year.

Chapter Three: Getting Pretty

So, before my party, my mom made me super-pretty. I got a bath and a pedicure.
I put on a pretty pink bow.
I put together the party favors for my puppy friends: a vanilla rawhide retriever from White Dog Bone.
And since it was such a beautiful day outside, I got a quick suntan by the window.

Chapter Two: Birthday Cake!!!

What is a birthday without cake, right?
Doggie birthday cakes are expensive, so my mom decided to try her hand at making a homemade Peanut Butter Carrot cake for my birthday this year.

And I got to help!
I cleaned up the mixer after shredding the carrots.
And then cleaned up the mixer bowl.
We popped it in the oven.
And then, there was cake!

Some of the humans wanted to try my cake. I didn't want to share at first, but since it was such a big cake, I figured that it was ok if they had a little taste.
John said it tasted like a peanut butter cookie, only drier.

I thought it tasted like heaven. I finished it in under 12 seconds. Yum, yum, yum!!!!

My birthday: Chapter One

Happy Birthday to me!
I had a fantastic birthday!
It all started with a yummy, yummy biscuit doughnut from Doggie Style!

I had to run upstairs to my favorite step to enjoy my tasty treat.

Only 3 days until my birthday!

I will officially be two years old (whoa, that's old) in three days, and my mom said I could have a birthday paw-ty!!
Invitations are out.

Now, I just have to figure out what kind of cake I want . . .

Babies in strollers

I met a lot of "kidlets" and babies at BARCS-toberfest last weekend. I especially loved the babies riding in strollers.

They were perfectly at eye-level and usually had yummy treats to share, like lollipops and juice cups.
That's weird. Do you see what I see?

Does that baby have floppy ears? Oh My Dog! That's not a baby at all!

Hello, Mr. Dachshund. How did you convince your mom to push you around in a stroller?
