Momo's barkday fun!!!
My barkday was 2nd but mom nad dad weren't feeling well on that day so there was no
barkday cake... not even some doggie treats.
Meantime we happily received this lovely card from our sissy Asta on my barkday.
Thank you Asta!! This is so sweet!!!
We were impressed by many details on this card
including our requests to our pawrents. :) You can also see Toronto's landmark CN Tower behind us.
...and guess what??
Asta's card worked!!!!! :)
Next day, we smelled something yummy in the kitchen.

Ohhhhhh..... these were what we couldn't take a peak but smelled!

First dad prepared our dinner with beef chops adding this yummy

'Pinot Leasheo' sauce made by Birk Vineyards.

Shortly after our dinner, dad prepared beacon wrapped sea scallops and

3 different kinds of shrimp skewers.

Mom enjoyed using dad's heavy camera.

Since she was the dad's assistant she wanted some good shots.

Mom didn't do much except taking some pictures and looking after James on this night.

Dad returned to the balcony to check our food in the avocado.

The surface of the avocado got really hot so we weren't allowed to enter the balcony.

" I can smell something!!!! I can hardly wait!! I am gonna lick this door!!!"

This is what we were waiting for!!!

"Dad, stop teasing us!!" We were danc'n'eat some pieces of fillet Mignon. :)

Next was our cake time which was the (mom's) highlight of the night.

Last year dad baked two cakes for me, Momo but this year

he didn't get a chance. (pls click here!)

"Dad, you own us something!!"

"Can we eat now??"

(Pinot) "I have to dig in!"

(Momo) "I am THE barkday girl!!! I was gonna have a bit first."

Mom was still playing with dad's camera after he prepared our portions (can you see them??

They were tiny!) and theirs (huge!).

We were very patient... (Momo) "Thank you dad to celebrate my barkday!"

OmD! What a great card and what a deeeeee-licious dinner and dessert!! I bet your pawrents would have cooked you something special in the avocado anyway but it sure was nice of Asta to provide a HINT!

I hope you felt very special with your lovely dinner because you are BOTH so special!

Sweet Momo!

I'm so glad you got such a FABulous birthday dinner and a gorgeously delicious cake! I think Asta sent some very strong birthday vibes toward your dad and he couldn't help BUT make you that good stuff. I wish I could have been there to give you your birthday smooch in person.

Stella & I were so sad to hear about sweet Roscoe. We know he was a special friend to you and Asta, and we are thinking of his family during this hard time.

We hope Roscoe is running like the WIND at the Rainbow Bridge!

Goober love & smooches,
