It’s hard to believe but Little Man Houdini is officially ONE YEAR OLD today!! Can you believe that? Mom/dad brought him here to the Hotel Thompson to his forever home 9 months ago – he was a mere three months and only weighed 3 pounds. This past weekend, mom/dad threw him a surprise birthday party with his doggy friends up at Nana’s. We will be having a party for him here at the Hotel Thompson with all of us tonight.
When he first got to Nana’s, mom changed him into his outfit to the left – isn’t it adorable? Oh my goodness – squeals. You see on Saturday, mom/dad went birthday shopping for the little guy at our local pet store. Houdini usually goes but couldn’t go this time so I went. Mom/dad didn’t want him to see all of his gifts for his birthday. And hey, I was in the car when they were doing their test on Albert vs Tank. I love the pet store – so many friendly peeps. Now I know why Houdini likes to go! So mom got Houdini all dressed up and then dressed up Tinkerbell and Dingo for the birthday bash.
Aren’t these two just the cutest? Dingo is on the left. He tolerated his hat only because he kept saying, “There will be ice cream, right?” Snorts – smart dog isn’t he?
Tinkerbell is on the right. She really liked her hat. She just pranced around the house wearing it… and looking for ice cream too. But you gotta admit, for 14 years old Tinkerbell looks like 4, doesn’t she? So cute and adorable.
And you are probably asking about the ice cream. Did you know that there is an ice cream made specifically for dogs called Frosty Paws? There is and you can buy it at your local grocery store. It doesn’t have any added sugar and this particular box had peanut butter flavor.
And it’s good. How do I know? Snorts – good question. You see Nana told me. When she served the ice cream, it was really hard. Nana put it in the microwave for a few minutes to soften it. Without thinking about it, she put her finger in it and tasted it to see if it was too warm. Doh! That’s when she realized she was eating doggy ice cream – snorts with piggy laughter. That’s our Nana. But she said it was delicious. How delicious? Let me show you some pics of the great ice cream eating fest.
This is Houdini blowing out his candle to the right. He was making a wish first – for lots and LOTS of toys and food.
Then the picture to the left is Houdini being spoon fed by Nana. Rolls piggy eyes. Can you imagine that? The little guy is getting SPOON FED for his birthday.
Of course, Nana put some on a plate too and he did eat some off of a plate with Dingo and Tinkerbell.
And don’t worry – Nana fixed Houdini a cake of sorts too. This is it in the picture to the right – cute huh? It had lots of food – Houdini got the pot of gold and got an entire box of Ceasar wet food. He eats a little of that every morning with his dry food. Talk about rotten huh? Well you haven’t seen anything. Look at all of the toys he got in his toy chest of a box.
He got a rope for tug a war from me. See I was thinking about the little guy 🙂 The cats gave him the cow looking thing in the middle. You stick an empty water bottle up it for the crunchy crinkly sound that Houdini loves. And Tinkerbell and Dingo got him the ball inside of a ball on the far left. So cool!
As you can see, Houdini had a great party at Nana’s. Tonight we are having a quite dinner and fun time with him here at the Hotel Thompson. But all of us anipals here have to tell the little guy –
And a special thank you to my brother Easy for sending the little guy his first birthday card. Thanks brother – he loved it!
