Hey everyone! Do I look any older?? I turned TWO today! Kinda snuck up on me too! Mom had to work part of the day (some nerve, huh?), but she made good on her promise to do a few special things with me this afternoon.
How do you like my birthday bandanna? Much better than the stupid pointy hat, don't ya think?? I didn't even mind wearing it when we went out to do some birthday shopping.
First stop, PetSmart. Yeah, it's a big box store, but they DO have tons of cool stuff!!
Sporting my "Birthday boy" bandanna while picking out some new toys. Decisions, decisions....
Here's where we stopped next. Is this like PetSmart for humans or something??
I've always heard about this place, never been. We stopped because mom had to pick something up here for me, and I actually got to go inside!
What on earth could I want from this place? Hmmm.....
When we got home, mom let me have all my pressies. Wow - look at all this stuff! I must have been a better boy that I thought!
A few (allegedly indestructible) stuffies (we'll see about that...) and some practical things too. That little gray pail is a thermos so that I always have fresh, cold water when we train or go to shows. Pretty nice, eh?
And will you look at this baby? My very own "fan club" BOL! So that's what she was getting at Home Depot! It has a big rechargeable battery (like the one you use for power tools), so we can take it anywhere to help keep me cool!
Oh, will you look at that. Carmen ended up being the one in the silly pointed hat this year! Not sure how happy she is about that. You should have seen how many tries it took mom to get this one mediocre picture. Ha! Still, how nice of Carmen to let mom embarrass her to help me celebrate!
I was so touched by her thoughtfulness that I let Carmen play with my new Kong snake. I mean you can't play tug-o-war by yourself anyways, so why not indulge her?
It was a fun afternoon, and the surprises kept coming! Next mom got all this stuff out and said she was making a special treat for me and all my classmates at agility tonight.
You'll have to tune in tomorrow to see more about what she made. All I'll say for now is that there is going to be a whole lot of this going on when you see the yummy things Mom whipped up:
Gotta go - someone needs to wipe up this big drool puddle on the floor before someone slips in it! Thanks for sharing my birthday with me - too bad they only come once a year, huh??
