My 8th B-Day Celebration

I turned 8 today!!

It's MY 8th B-Day today, today is the 8th year I've been born, I am 2920 days old, I am 70070 hours old (+/- a few)!!

And I was reaaaaaaally hungry!! Mum wouldn't stop taking pictures, and I wanted to EEEEEEEAT! So I told her so!

But EVIL mum said NOT YET! Because... this year is a little different...

You see, I used to celebrate my birfdays this way

With all my Aire-Stuffies, and nodoggie else!

I like it this way because I don't have to worry about somedoggie else eating my food, I don't have to share, and I won't try to EAT somedoggie else.

But I guess..... all good things must come to an end......

And I guess....... I'm stuck with a STINKY from now on.... for like... ever and EVER!

(mum: I took Jaffa off his IV for a bit so he could join in on the fun. He was looking a little worried because I made him sit in the "danger zone"..LOL if you know what I mean.)


We were set free to eeeeeeeat!

Mum took STINKY's big plate away because he couldn't have those just yet. He is still on a special kind of food and meds for his gastric ulcers that he got from eating those AdEvil pills. He is also only allowed to eat a little bit of food every 3 hours. Boy I felt bad for him! So mum gave him the special one she made with his canned food inside as filling.

He INHALED it in less than 3 seconds. I am NOT joking!! (mum: my shutter speed was apparently too slow!)

It was sooooo good, and there was SOOOOOOO much! It makes me happy to see lots of food you know what I mean??

The yam and salmon patties were good too,

I took a moment to admire the bootifully made patties,

Aren't they bootiful??? (mum: You usually do that BEFORE you start eating....hehe)

I kept eating, and eating, you know, just the usual,

OH, and did I mention? It was sooooooooo super duper GOOOOOOOOOD!

I kept my eyes on a certain shark that was hovering around MY birfday food,


You just never know when he's gonna.......

Slowly...... moving.......

And before you know it.........

(mum: Jaffa was HILARIOUS!!!! He kept his eyes on Sunshade while he was making his move. He was using me as a shield LOL. As soon as he saw Sunshade bending down after a piece she had dropped on the floor, he took full advantage!!)


See, that's all there was left.......... poor me.... poor birfday gurl.....

(mum: SUNSHADE!!!! I have evidence here why that was all that's left! OH, and everydoggie/body, watch Miss Sunshade's facial expression, especially around the muzzle region. If she weren't so hairy, you would have seen her beautiful Aire-teeth!)

Mum... you need your OWN BLOG, I swear.

(mum: Jaffa really shouldn't have been eating those because of his tummy, but I didn't have the heart to stop him, especially he worked hard to get that close!!)

After MY plate of food was finished, I had a little "chat" with STINKY about his unspeakable, indescribable behaviour around MY plate of MY birfday fooooood.

I know it might appear as tho I was smooching him and stuff, but really, I wasn't! I don't do smooches! (mum: but Sunshade.... I swear I saw you sniffing him while wagging your tail.... as if you were *ahem*.. flirting....HEHEHE!)


After our little chat, I went to clean my face. I'm a clean gurrrrl you know? I always clean my face after I eat!

I was feeling a little full, a little heavy (in the stomach that is), so I decided to exercise a little before opening my pressies. I demanded STINKY's humpy toy that was put up high (he used to hump this one, and then he started humping STINKY #2, so mum put it away),

Now look at that STINKY..... does he look sick to you AT ALL????? He said he was doing a birfday dance for me .... I guess land sharking here and there was part of the routine.....

(mum: I think Sunshade was too full to move LOL. If I didn't know better, I would have almost believed that Jaffa's blood result was that of another dog, much sicker. His physical appearance does NOT correspond to his blood results.)

I have a question for all my friends out there. Do you guys agree or disagree that we should be able to have *all* the stuffies we want, ESPECIALLY ones that look like us??

Mum lets me have any stuffy I want EXCEPT those Aire-stuffies. That is just sooooooo unfair don't you think?? They are made looking like us because they are obviously meant for US!!

Then, the UNTHINKABLE happened...... (from dancing too hard??)


Seriously, who pees at birfday pawties?????

(mum: his first accident since 4 months old.. I think because he was on IV all day until just before the celebration, he was having to go quite frequent. Plus all the running around probably didn't help either.)

OMG!! Do you know how absolutely terrifying and petrifying pee and poop (mum: the dog kind that is....) are to me??????? See, I ran to the furthest end of the room to get away...

(mum: she was pawing the door, trying to get out LOL!)

Thank doG mum cleaned it up fast.

I decided to go down to see if MY Georgie came back. Since it's my birfday you know??

Hmmmm..... he wasn't there.

I don't know where Georgie went, he's been missing for a while now. I hope he comes back because I miss him.

(mum: sigh...... yea... we'll post about that later.... She still goes down there everyday to see if he's come back.....)

Even tho I didn't get to go for a birfday romp today, I guess all that food kind of made it up. I'm SOOOO full....

My lovely pressies will come in another post! Stay tuned!

Happy Birthday Sunshade!!!!!!

So sorry about Stinky stealing your yummies.. if i were there... i'd make sure that you get to eat all of it!

They do look yummy though.. i'm sure that you wouldn't mind sharing a teeny bit with me right?



Peanut said...

I can't beleive that stinky took your food and then peed on the floor. The things you have to put up with. Poor you.

Mojo, Digger and family said...

Happy Birthday Sunshade! I loved your twitchy-lip snarl when Stinky was trying to steal your birthday cake. Gotta put a boy in his place, right?

Is it my fertile imagination, or have you turned into a koala in that third photo?

Amazing to see Jaffa bouncing around. He really doesn't know how sick he is, does he? Let's hope he continues to feel this perky and begins to recover.

Big love to you Sunshade for being such a patient and good sister.

Feliz CumpleaƱos - Happy Birthday
You were too excited that's why you pee...but don't worry it's your barkday!!!
omg, stinky have to show some respect at least on your barkday.

Harry said...

I wipe my face just like you, except I prefer the corner of the wall or the rug!

Your cakes look jolly tasty I must say, I totally understand why you weren't keen to share.

I'm glad you and mum managed to have some time out from taking care of dear Jaffa to celebrate. Shame he had to pee, but we forgive him don't we, poor sweet boy.

Toodle pip,
Harry x

jaffeboy said...

Wow... what fancy cake you had! Poor Jaffa couldn't have any yet.

See, once Jaffa gets better he will get his share & I'm sure you can show him "your stuff" & get most it from the plate! cool!

Duke said...

We can't believe you ate ALL those little cakes in one sitting! And we also can't believe that those birthday hats stayed on for the whole time! OOPS! Sorry Jaffa peed at your pawty, Sunshade. It was an accident!
BTW, our mom has Airedale stuffies and she doesn't let us play with them either! How come moms are so stingy with stuff we want?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Asta said...

Happy Belated Birfday, Sunshade.

That is quite a lot of food for your special day so I guess its ok for Jaffa to have some since he is currently on controled diet.

Poor Jaffa, he muct be having lots of liquid in him that he couldn't control his bladder but it really not very gentleman like to have accident on a birfday pawty.

Your mum is really creative and your birfday cake looks really pretty.


Lenny said...

Hey Miss Sunshade the Superdale! I'm glad you got to celebrate some, and I'm sure you'll get to even more once Stinky is feeling better.

My mom lets me play with my WFT stuffies, but only because I'm an old dog and I don't chew toys apart any more. I used to though!

Your friend, Lenny

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hey Superdale a feast....Stinky's portion did look a lot smaller than yours...but, it was YOUR day.

Happy happy barkday, Sunshade.
You and ur Mumsie have had a tough week....I think you've been a solid dale girl for her to lean on with stinky's adevil problem.

We love you!

Scruffy and Lacie

wally said...

I completely agree with you on the stuffie question. As many as we want. And of whatever kind we want, too.

I think of you and your George every time I see a rabbit. He was lucky to have such a good friend like you.


Lady Kaos said...

Did you really get your own personal containter of icecream? That's what I want for my next birthday!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Oh. Jaffa must be very excited about your birthday pawty that's why he had the accident.
Your mom sure spend alot of time to make your birthday special. :)

Happy Birthday to you again Sunshade

Kirby said...

Hi Sunshade,

What a birthday celebration. All that food and good times. You were so nice to share your goodies with stinky. He was hilarious, he's so scared of you, it made me giggle. He certainly looks good, land sharking around and all that. Can't wait to see all your prezzies. So glad you had such a nice birthday!

Your pal,

T-man Angel said...

Yum, you ate the WHOLE thing!! I'm so mom usually buys herself a cake and eats it on my birthday in front of me. The nerve!!

Joe Stains said...

Stanley said...


I knew you'd get your celebration eventually, girlie! That birfday food looked so yummy, I wanted to jump through the pooter to help you out (though I would NEVER do that since you are like me when it comes to yummies).

Goober love & birfday smooches,

Bogart H. Devil said...


You look awfully pretty with your birthday hat on...


Jemma Chihuahua said...

Happy Birthday, Sunshade!
Wowee, your mummy's super creative!

Mom has some Chihuahua stuffies and she WON'T let me touch 'em either! They're the ONLY toys I want to play with! Humans are so weird - what good are they to just sit around and collect dust?? We could put it to GOOOOOD use.


Unknown said...

OH my goodness what a wonderful birhday party! I am happy your stinky could join in with you and have a good time...That made me happy to see!

Did you eat all those treats? You lucky dog you!
