Happy 11th Birthday to me!

I know there has been a lot of stuff put on here about my birthday and Mom made me do it. You see, last year she was sick and I didn't get anything. Yep, that's right, nothing. What an awful Mom, right? The only mention of my birthday on my blog is here. So, she promised me that she would make it up to me this year and talk about it on my blog. At least she kept her promise!
You guys remember those 2 boxes from Amazon that came and Mom wouldn't let me open them? Well, she wouldn't let me open them because they were for my birthday today. And this is what was in the first one:

Teeth cleaning stuff?
I was hoping for something a little more uh, less torturous.
Mom says she got this because I won't let her brush my teeth so she wanted to try something else. She didn't realize that the dental chews were rawhide so she says she is gonna ask the V.E.T. to see if it is okay for me to have them frequently.
The second one had these:

A new collar and leash.
It's about time, I was about to wear the other one out!
I got two more packages in the mail this week too.
One from my Hero with a wonderful card inside.,,,

....and this beautiful collar and leash.
I am one lucky girl to have such a fashion conscious guy!
And he is so sweet too!

I'm so excited!
I've never had 2 sets of collars and leashes to switch back and forth. This is gonna be fun!
Thank you so much, Hero (and Cheche and Koko)!
I love it!
I've been wearing it all day.
Well, except for when Mom made me take it off so I could try the other one on.
Don't tell her, but I like yours better ;o)

The other package had some wonderful foodables in it!
Not too long ago the DWB blog had posted about Fresh Pet wanting dog bloggers to try out their food and write a review. This was before Mom knew I had thyroid trouble and she emailed and told them about my hair loss issues. We found out that I was picked as one of the ones to review Fresh Pet food. So, honestly, this wasn't a birthday present but since it came a couple days before my birthday I'm including it.
Mom decided to save it all til today and use the slice and serve as my birthday cake. So, she opened it last night and cut out a couple pieces and then stuck them in the freezer, thinking it would be a great treat after a walk.
We walked over to Grandma and Grandpa's house. On the way back my friend, Baxter, was out and I stopped and visited with him and his mom.

When we got home, Mom got my 'birthday cake' out of the freezer. Then she had to tell me something about this is supposed to look like an 11.....blah, blah.....

I don't care what it looks like!
Just give it to me already and stop flapping your lips!
(Notice how great my fabulous new collar
from Hero looks with my furs!)

I'm thinking I like it.

Although, I'm not quite sure.
Better try this other piece too.

Is that all there is?

Well, I have one thing to say....MORE!

I want to try all the wonderful things I got from Fresh Pet before writing a review so look for that in a couple weeks.
Look at all this stuff I got today!

And look at me with all this stuff I got today!

Yes, I did go to the V.E.T. yesterday in case you were wondering. They weren't able to do any tests because my mom, aka Dufus, forgot I had to take my pill 4-6 hours before the appointment. So, I will be going back next week.

Please cross your paws for my daddy. You may have noticed he isn't in any of my pictures today. He got bitten by the stomach flu bug in the middle of the night last night. Good thing it wasn't a flea or Momma woulda kicked him outta bed like she does me!

What a PAWsome birthday! So many pressies and your 11 cakes looks devine!!

My mom is a doofus too... she did that once and we live 90 minutes from our vet! Yipes! Lucky she was off that day and just hung out at a park for awhile and then went back to test. She felt so silly. And Ginger had been on soloxine for YEARS so she couldn't even blame not being familiar.

Sending get well wishes to your dad. That flu bug is nasty! Has your company left?

I already wished you a Happy Birthday, Twix, but I had to come here and make it official. I must say your orange collar and leash are spectacular on you. What a fun birthday and all the presents and treats! Sorry to hear about the papa. The stomach flu is the worst! I sure hope he's already recovered.
