Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy’s Two Year Birthday

Twiggy and Lucy

“Hey, Twiggy. I hear Mom coming in from outside.”

“What’s the big deal? She does that all the time.”

Twiggy and Lucy

“Since it’s your birthday, I think she has a surprise.”

“A surprise? What kind of surprise?”

“Go to the dining room and take a look.”

“I certainly smell something up there. I can’t reach it, though.”

“What does it smell like?”

“Offhand, I would say yogurt and peanut butter.”

“Yeah,Β from here, I think that’s a good guess. Oh, here comes mom with a car seat.”

“Now we’re talking. I can jump right up here.”

“Hold on, Little Potato. I think mom and the boss want to sing Happy Birthday.”

“I forget how it goes.”

🎢 Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Twiggy. Happy Birthday to youuuuuuuuuu.🎢

Twiggy and Lucy

“Oh, I’m so happy. When can we dig in?”

“Go for it,Β Little One. The singing is over, and now the eating should start.

    1. She did. These treats were made for dogs and neither thought they were all that good. They each got a share though.

    1. The hat was put on by the producer electronically. Twiggy wouldn’t keep a hat on. Thanks, Dan. Didn’t mean to pop the bubble.

      1. Ha. It’s OK, John. We have one picture, from 36 years of having Irish Setters, of a setter wearing a green hat on St. Patrick’s Day. I think it took forever for my wife to manage. It was before photo-editing was available to us.

  19. Don’t worry about the hat. I put a set of antlers on Dixie Rose the same way. Just so you know, you’re not the only ones who celebrate with great panache. I know a woman in Kansas who makes her dog an elk birthday cake every year, with mashed potato frosting. (She shoots the elk, too.)

    1. Oh my goodness. An Elk cake seems a little extreme for me. Thanks, Linda.

      1. That’s disappointing. Dog bakery treats never come cheap. The least they could do is make them taste good.
