They Say It’s Your Birthday!
Today is Sid’s big day and we kicked off the celebration with a pug cake. Well, it wasn’t technically a cake but rather a combination of some of his favorite treats.
We started with one de-cored apple, slathered on some chunky all-natural peanut butter, and topped the whole thing with carrot slivers to serve as the candles (he’s six this year). We set up a towel for him to eat this goopy mega-treat on but he immediately plucked it up and toted it over to his bed where he started going to town.
In order to try and encourage him to slow down a little and savor the experience, we took the cake away for a moment…
…and of course his little pug face immediately dropped. It’s Okay, buddy, you can have the cake back now.
Timothy Buttons, who was over for the party, made sure no peanut butter drippings got left behind. She’s a smart girl and knew better than to get between an obsessive Birthday Pug and his cake!
In addition to the cake and Sid’s Secret Toy (which we’ll reveal tomorrow) he also got a flat plush
rabbit raccoon (You were right, Payton!).
Like the Secret Toy, the flat
rabbit raccoon also brought out the wild animal in him!
Sid, let’s calm down a little. We don’t want that cake to come back up!
All in all it was one excellent Birthday. Sid is one happy (and spoiled) 6-year-old!
