Nine Years Old Today

Dear folks,

I have an announcement to make. Today is my BARKDAY! I am officially NINE years old! Hip! Hip! Hooray!

Over the past 9 years, the Missus has always taken photos of me posing with my birthday cakes. As you know, I am a very good boy and I have always obliged her during her crazy and demanding photo-shoots.

But this year was different and I don’t know why (maybe it comes with age?). I have had enough of waiting and posing next to my cake. So, while she was busy sorting out the camera settings, I seized the opportunity to dive into my cake there and then.

Here’s Yours Truly gobbling up the cakes. Unfortunately, this left the Missus no time to capture her stage-managed shots. Instead, she had to grab her camera hastily and just hit the shutter button continuously.

Mmmmm...Cake!

In the past, the Missus would bake my Barkday cakes for me. But this year, as most of her baking stuff is still in storage, she had to go out and buy these mini-cakes from a dog bakery in Bangkok. They came in different flavours – pumpkin, chicken liver, salmon, beef…gee I cannot remember what else but I know they all tasted YUMMY!

Oh my dog! They tasted so good! Excuse my manners while I enjoy my cake!

The Missus finally managed to rescue a few morsels for a photo-shot before I could finish them off!

She then made me take a short ‘break’ from my ‘scoffing’ so that she could take a few more photos.

When she was done, I finished-off the rest within seconds. I hope I won’t get tummy upset! Yikes!

All that remained were the candle and the plastic wrapper!

PS: I was actually burping in this photo and the Missus managed to capture it!

With all my love,
Homer

We think by the time you hit the mature (but not old!) age of 9, your Mom should have learned to be a little faster on the draw with the camera! We don't blame you for gobbling down the goodies - they sound yummy! Happy Bark Day!

Happy Bark-day Homer,

You waited 365 days for cake, so when it is finally put in front of you why there is no reason to wait a moment longer for the one who is slow with the camera!

Love and woofs,
Riley

Hi Homer!

Thanks for stopping by our blog. We're sorry that our Happy Birthday is belated. But looks like you had a Fangtastic one!

We just don't get that official photo thing where you are supposed to WAIT before you can dive into YOUR cake. Just crazy.
