Chow Chow's 2nd Birthday

I turned two on Monday! Actually it was just another ordinary day. Mummy and Daddy left me home alone all morning and afternoon. No special trip to the dog park or the beach. But at least Mummy brought me a birthday cake and we took a long walk to Grandpa's house (I love the 45-min walk)! Initially, she was feeling ambitious and wanted to bake me a birthday cake using the recipe from her friend. However she was busy that day and had no time to do any grocery shopping, let alone bake me a cake! In order to feel less guilty, Mummy went to buy me a blueberry cake from US Dog Bakery instead!

I also wore a glittery red bow so as to look more dressy for my birthday! Don't I look sexy?!

To be honest, I hated it when my pawrents lighted the candles on the cake. The flame is just terrifying. Why do humans like to burn the perfectly normal food? I mean I am so beautifully fluffy. What if my luscious mane caught fire?! I'm not so stupid as to go near the dangerous cake!

After some coaxing from Mummy and with the promise of some treats, I relunctantly posed with Mummy and the dangerous cake. Mummy, the cake is too near for comfort!

Finally, my pawrents decided to sing me a birthday song, wished me a lifetime of good health and blew out the candles on my behalf. Phew! I sniffed at the cake suspiciously. Never had cake in my two years of living so I gotta check if it is safe to eat. Mummy was very eager to feed me a piece of the cake. Hmmmm...normally my pawrents will never offer me the good stuff (like the yummy cakes and snacks and fried chicken that they eat) so I should really be wary of this creamy cake that Mummy is coaxing me to eat!

After some probing here and licking there, I ate the cake eventually. It's not bad but I would want second helpings if there are some bacon strips or barbequed pork in it!

My baby sister woke up from her nap in time for the celebration and we finally took our very first family picture!

Aw...that family picture is just gorgeous!! What a lovely family! You must take more!

And wow - what a beautiful cake!! How lucky are you to get a cake from a dog bakery!! But I agree - I would be suspicious of a cake too if it had a fire on top! Still, it looked really delicious and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

And yes - you look so handsome in your bow-tie! (*swooooooon!)
