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!

    That special apple looks amazing! You are so lucky that you got the whole thing! Did you make a wish before you chowed down? I’d probably be too distracted by the yumminess of it all to remember. And to think that your ‘rents would take it away for a break? The nerve! (Alright, mine would have done the same thing.) Good call on the sad puggy dog face though…works every time!

    Your new flat toy looks like those Skinneez that I like so much…but I think you got a raccoon with those black circles around his eyes. You look so cute and happy attacking it! Since this toy is so cool, I can’t even imagine what the special one is!!

    I’m glad you had a wonderful birthday! Wish I could have been there to celebrate (and get a piece of that apple)! Oh, and that shark hoodie is awesome!!


    PS. I’ll be voting for your calendar picture tomorrow, but when I checked out the months yesterday, I just saw you for OCT…what happen to AUG?

    Thank you all for the Birthday wishes! I had a great day. I wouldn’t mind eating a cake like that everyday (thanks, Mom and Dad!)

    Payton – You were right, I got so excited while dad was preparing the cake that I totally forgot to make a wish! I guess you could consider the cake a wish-come-true though. Also you were right about my new flat toy – it is a raccoon! My dad was half-working half-writing the post yesterday which is why he got confused. About the calendar – they narrowed it down to the top 3 for each month. I didn’t have enough votes for Aug, so we are concentrating the efforts on October. Thank you for your votes!

    Noodles & Meredith – I love my shark hoodie, too! I got it at a pet boutique in San Francisco, but I’m sure you could order them online. The company that makes it is called “Dogo” and they have tons of other clothes that look really interesting (

    Malcolm – I’m sorry your dad didn’t get you anything for your birthday. I know he’s a busy guy, but I think you might need to start protesting. If that doesn’t work, my parents said the next time they watch you, they’ll bring you something special!

    -Love, Sid

    Happy Barkday Sid! Oh man, we will have to steal that “cake” idea. Mom bakes us a cake, but yours sounds better. (droool, slobbers…) PEANUT BUTTERS……
