My Birthday Celebration!

Hey everybody!! Thank you very much for all the Happy Birthday wishes! It was a great day and a great weekend. I'm going to show you it, but first I need to ask if any of you hear of a job my Mom can have PLEASE e-mail her. I don't really care what the job is. She can do it from home as long as she sits at the table or a desk to do it!!! She is driving me nuts!! I thought I was going to love having her around those 2 hours in the morning, but I miss my nap time. Sasha and I usually have to kick her off the couch so we can get on with our day. This morning she didn't go to work until 11:00 because the other girl who had her hours cut and shares the duty of answering the phones with Mom needed to leave at noon so instead of Mom going in at 10:00, working an hour and taking lunch she just went in at 11:00. You're probably thinking that's cool! IT'S NOT!!! With that extra hour in the morning she did some extra housecleaning which meant she had time to VACUUM!!! Sasha, Gunnar and I were rudely woken by the stupid vacuum running when all 3 of us should have been napping!! So if any of you hear about a job my Mom can do for those 2 hours in the morning or one she can switch to permanently, I would greatly appreciate it and so would Gunnar and Sasha.
Okay, now about my birthday celebration! I told Mom and Dad not to buy me any new toys because I know we have to be careful with money right now in case Mom looses more hours or completely. Mom made us some pupcakes and Mom and Dad played lots and lots of fetch with me all weekend so I was very happy even without new toys.
Mom let us help make the pupcakes by licking the beaters and the spoons. Licking the beaters was much cuter, but Mom says it's hard to hold 2 beaters for us and a camera at the same time so she didn't get a picture of us licking the beaters. I'm going to add comments to my pictures. My words will be in green and Sasha's will be in red.

mmmm, Mom you have to share this recipe with all my friends. These are way better than last year's pupcakes!!!!!

Make fun of my crazy eyes all you want! I don't care because this stuff is AWESOME!!!!!

Are you sure they're still too warm to eat?

I am guarding the pupcakes so nothing happens to them.
Note from Mom: Kaos sat there the entire time watching the pupcakes after they came out of the oven. Her Grandma kept asking how she knew they were for her. The answer is, because she's a smart puppy!

These are what the pupcakes looked like. See how Mom made some tiny ones for Sasha and some big ones for me. The small ones are great for a quick snack for me, too. Mom says next time she'll probably make them all small. For the frosting I chose peanut butter. Notice there's no sprinkles or fancy decoration. That's because I didn't want to wait that long for them!!! It was torture enough waiting for them to cool. I'm going to make Mom post the recipe for all of you to try soon. The modifications she made to them this year will make you all drool a lot!!

I hate this stupid stay crap you guys always make us do before we get treats.
What do you mean you don't want peanut butter all over the carpet in the kitchen? Who cares! Mom, hurry up and get our food dishes or Dad looses a leg!!!

It's about time!!!!
Yur grawt tha mrighphmmm!!!
You can see in the above picture that I like to lick the frosting off the pupcake first, Sasha digs right in and takes it out of her bowl and eats off the floor. Mom says Sasha has always done that since she was a little puppy and nobody knows why.

Dang! I gowt peamutbutter snuck on the rwoof of my mowf!
Hurry up and eat that. I heard Dad tell Mom as soon as we finish this one, we get another one!!

hehe, That's not really what I was saying. I was actually trying to get that dang peanut butter off the roof of my mouth. Dad did try a pupcake and said it tasted pretty good. I wasn't happy he ate one of my pupcakes, but since it was my birthday I let him join the celebration. Mom said there was no way she was going to eat one after smelling the batter. She said she remembered why she only makes them once a year.

You can have my crumbs Sasha, I'm saving room for the second pupcake!!!

Mom told Dad if he gave us the second pupcake and she had to smell our gas all night long, Dad and I had to go sleep in the shop. I held all my gas in until the next morning after Dad left for work and I was curled up on the couch watching Turbo Dogs with Mom (we love watching that cartoon!!!). When Dad got home and laughed because I had such bad gas, he didn't make the situation any better when he revealed to Mom he had given me one for breakfast, too. I was sure Dad and I were going to have to sleep in the shop Saturday night, but by bedtime Mom had forgiven or forgotten about it so we slept in our beds.
On Sunday afternoon, Mom and Dad went fishing without me which was kind of upsetting, but when they came home I forgave them because Mom said they went to the ponds to go fishing this time and after walking around and surveying everything they decided once it gets warmer, I can go play in the ponds!!!!!!!! I'm so excited!! I'm not allowed to go fishing with them because I try to retrieve the lures, baits and bobbers after they throw them out, but Mom said they'll make a special trip to the ponds a few times this summer without their fishing poles so I can go along!!! I'm very excited!!
This is a picture for my buddy Dannan the Little Brown Dog and his Girl. How do you like my Elvis lip, Dannan? Your Elvis impersonation is way better, but I've been practicing just for you!

Moco said...

It looks like you had a great birthday. We are looking forward to the recipe for those pupcakes. We got peanut butter the other day and it was pretty funny to watch.

The Daily Echo said...

They look so yummy! You're lucky Mom made them for you. Try to be patient with her. Give her extra slurps. Dad could use a new receptionist but I don't think she'd like the commute. We live in Pencilvanya.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Dannan and The Girl said...

Wroooooo, Kaos! Happy bee-late birthday! Those pupcakes look delish-us!

You do a pretty good Elvis lip! Just keep practicing, and you'll be giving me a run for my money!

Brown dog kisses,

Happy belated Birthday Kaos. Sorry we are late. The Mommy cried when she read the story of how you got adopted. She just loved the way your Mommy talked about how excited she was to get you. You know I was adopted too.

Sasha is so pretty. The Mommy said could you show us some more pictures of her.

Ya gotta get your mom to share that pupcake receipe with us.

Love you all...Mona

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh you surely had a grrrrrreat day!

We were a bit puzzled about your "gas" then we realised what you meant!

We don't call it gas here, more like "wind" .............

Once we got the sense (or even the scents!) of it, we understood.

Very funny! lotsaluv, and wish your Mum luck with her job stuff.

BenTheRotti said...

Happy Belated Birthday beautiful!

So sorry I missed it. My Mum's birthday is the 19th.. I asked if that made you almost twins but Mum gave me *the look* so I'm guessing thats a no!

Those pupcakes look yummylicious.

We hope you Momma gets sorted out with a new job soon, I wish I was closer I would come and have the meanies at her job for breakfast then throw the scraps to the birdies.. grrrrrrr

love and kisses,

Ben xxxx

Hi Kaos,
What a grat barkday celebration you had! Those pupcakes look delicious and I am sure they tasted yummy! Your mom is so sweet to bake you some love-filled pupcakes.. our LAZY mom only buys them from the shop. Phooooey..

Sorry to hear about your disrupted schedule now that you mom is going to work later. We kinda enjoy having our mom home cos we get to snuggle with her and make her scratch our ears, rub our tummies.. Heeeheee..

Glad you girls liked the pressies we sent you! Now Kaos and Hershey will have matching collars, how cool!

Hana said...

Did I miss it in your blog? What was the alteration your Mom made to your pupcakes that caused all the gas? Did she lessen the oil or butter, too? My pupcakes were swimming in oil after they were baked! She forgot to put less oil in.

I am so sorry I missed your birthday. I am an awful boyfriend.
