BBQ at Raul's

Mum took me and only ME (STINKY was home being calm) to Raul's birfday BBQ this afternoon. Look at the brand new cooking machine bought just for the BBQ!!!!

Here are the things I did as soon as I got to Raul's house:

1. I found a tennis ball using my almighty juicy nosey,

2. I wasted no time,

And put my great landscaping ability to work,

But EVIL mum told me NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Made me come out, said it was not MY yard so I couldn't help landscaping it. So ungrateful that woman.

3. I helped Raul inspect the un-cooked food to make sure everything was kept fresh,

4. I watched and wondered why those silly hoomans put nacho chips in a pot, and proceeded to trying to pick up those chips with skewer sticks,

5. I went and got my PINK piggie from the livingroom,

This is my piggie specially for me to play with whenever I go to Raul's house. It's PINK!!

I took a break from playing with my piggie to check out the progress on the cooking machine.

6. I kept hoomans focused.

Take Dave here for example, he was forgetting the important task at hand here,

So I had to give him a gentle reminder, (told you I like un-neutered males!!)

Dave took off his jacket, and got ready to play. HOWEVER, he grabbed a frisbee and got down to position. Now seriously........

Did he really expect me to do what my handsome S'pore fling Kingley can do?

Or what the ever so talented Chester does day after day??

Seriously, I probably carry 20 extra pounds and am much straighter (hence not as fast, not as agile, not as flexible) than those handsome BOYZ, and he expected me to jump like them??

But Dave insisted.....

So I came up with a plan......


Dave gave up long ago but got his buddies to come after me because he knew you would never be able to take the frisbee away from the SuperDALE unless you CHEAT!!!

But sometimes, CHEATING still DOESN'T WORK because a SuperDALE is just way too smart!!!

(mum: she hid under the patio with the frisbee LOL)

7. I made sure cooking was on schedule,

We had shrimp, salmon, chicken wings, pork, short ribs, and some veggies,

8. I made sure nobody forgot about my existence,

9. I made sure the table was set correctly - with MY piggie, MY water, and MY bowl of course!

10. I voiced my concern over the freshness of the food being left on the table,

11. Being the selfless girl that I am, I volunteered

to sacrifice myself as the food tester, (see, it was because of me non of you hoomans got upset tummies!!)

12. I put on my most effective begging faces,

13. I did some much needed catching up with my old classmate, Dave.

Dave and mum went to University together. Since I went to most of mum's lectures, Dave and I were practically classmates.

I told my old friend I would always be there for him if he needed support or comfort,

(mum: Sunshade, I think we all know what you were REALLY doing there with Dave!)

I was just being a good friend mum, you know me.... (mum: uh huh..)

Now look at what that mean Dave gave me after our heart to heart comfort talk.....

ZUCCHINI slices!!!!



Poor me only got a very very few bites because EVIL mum said the marinating sauce was not good for me................

14. Lastly, I watched an inexplainable event unfold,

Why would anybody waste a perfectly edible mouth watering cup cake on their forehead??

BTW, just so you know, I did NOT get any cup cakes because EVIL mum said they have wheat in them... I was totally starved!

I dogsonally believe, hoomans nowadays are unwell. They cheat (frisbee), they lack compassion (zucchini slices), and they do things they can't even explain themselves (nacho chips in pot & skewer sticks, smashed cupcake).

Why didn't you offer to help that nice hooman clean the cupcake off his forehead? I'm sure he would have been most appreciative!
I put my paw on laps when I beg too! It's gets the point across so much better! Maybe if you would have used two paws, you would have scored chicken or pork!

Love ya lots,

Miss Sunshade,
You look so concerned in your last photo. I understand your worries. Someone needs to take care of these humans. What a waste of a good cupcake!!


Snowball said...

Sunshade, I think you should train your mum to eat food that is also good enough for you. I dun think its right for a SuperDale to be left out on the eating when she had helped to make sure that everything is in order.


Texas's Mum said...

Sunshade i totally
agree with you i think that
we doggies need to step up the
training of our hoomans as i think
some are in need of it.

Love and Licks
Texas (and his humans).

Murphey said...

Zucchini!? ZUCCHINI!? That is just wrong.


Stanley said...

Sunshade!! Good thing you were there, girl. Imagine how inept they would have been at even *having* a pawty if you had not been there. I'm surprised they can feed themselves.

I think they could learn a few things (or 15) from you about BBQ, friendship, reunions, and proper cupcake respect.

Goober love & sympathy,

Luckie Girl said...

That was some pawty I say. :) Yum Yum Yum..they should have shared more goodies.
