Domo, the Halloween baby turned 4 on 31st October. The sister and I decided to pack the family and the dogs to Botanic Gardens for a picnic and little ‘celebration’. We were really worried that a thunderstorm, as reported by the weather forecast, would rain on our parade, but we did a little ‘raindance’ or should I say, ‘anti-raindance’ and all was fine.
I don’t think Domo understood what all that fuss around him was about, but here’s a lovely cake, just for you! It’s lamb, cream cheese and carob cookies. Absolutely divine in the doggie world. I placed an order for a slightly larger cake so that Domo could share it with his doggie friends, Moon and Toto. It was a pity that Toto was busy that day and could not make the party.
Domo even got a birthday present from the sister! What a lovely personalised bandana. 🙂
We found that this was the only way to take a decent, non blurry shots of the two dogs – wave a treat in front of them and have them ‘stay’.
And then it was time for the birthday boy to pose for pictures with his cake. I must say that he was pretty good at that too! He didn’t try and attack the cake at all. Maybe all that training school did pay off after all.
He even let me put a little party hat on him. Haha.
My camera-sensitive dog. Notice that no one else is looking into the camera?
He got really bored waiting.
My mum insisted that he ‘cut’ his own cake. I found that pretty much ridiculous and was really tickled by the thought. We did it to humour her anyway.
Being the gentleman that he is, Domo let his guest, Moon have her slice of cake first.
Finally! He lapped it up in an instant.
Here’s the both of them looking happy and satisfied:
Happy duo. Happy birthday Domo!! Live long and prosper!!
Here’s an old picture to reminisce. He was a tiny pup!
