Happy Birthday, Bitty and Bear
One year ago, two little creatures entered our lives. They terrorized our nights with banshee screams, peed on every inch of carpet and turned our organized home into slightly manageable chaos.
And I couldn't have been happier.
There was the first bath...
The night time snuggles...
The patter of little puppy paws behind me wherever I went...
And the sight of a little head trying to hide in our covers at night.
One year later, Bitty and Bear are even more fun than they were as little puppies that could fit in my palm.
To celebrate this grand occasion, we had all sorts of wondrous festivities planned in the Pond.
All sorts of friends attended,
including Bear's new friend the Moose.
Since Bitty had already ordered all her royal subjects to attend,
Her birthday activities included showing off her new gems.
The puppies and their guests (and ordered servants) then dined on chopped hot dog and nachos made from a corn tortilla and the finest shredded cheese.
For several moments, the only sounds in the Pond include polite snorting, wuffling with joy and slurping as hot dogs and nachos were dragged all over the kitchen floor. They were quite enthusiastic about their meal.
In fact, Bitty enjoyed her meal so much she stole the last nacho and retired to the kitchen rug, growling at all who stepped too close to her birthday treat.
Of course, there is more.
As no birthday in the Pond ever last one day (mine last a month), the Babies will also celebrate tomorrow evening with peanut butter puppy pies and chicken chew sticks provided by the Blond Duck's mom.
After such a wonderful birthday, Bear could only wuffle one last request.
Yo quiero peanut butter puppy pie, pronto.
Happy Birthday to the Pond's Babies!
Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! This weekend, we have the Rubber Chicken's gallant search for his fuzzy love and more whimsical fun! Next week, stay tuned for a new Twirl, Gift and tasty recipe (that for now, shall remain secret!)
