Norbert here: Ten is a big mile stone worthy of a big fun filled weekend. However, I've always been a simple hound of simple tastes. My birthday weekend started with a nice grooming at Canis Minor Jersey City and a walk with mom and dad, this was early in the morning before it reached an infernal 99 degrees, requiring me to spend the rest of the day inside in the AC.
When it had cooled down a bit mom and dad brought me outside to investigate my birthday gifts.
This year my gifts seemed to have a sci-fi theme and they definitely met with my approval.
I got a knitted alien dog toy from the Kenana Knitters, these great knitted toys are made by women in Kenya who gain a lively hood, medical care, and education for themselves and their families through the sale of their merchandise. You can buy these knitted toys at my favorite online store Olive Green Dog.
Then I got a super cool space alien dog collar and leash from Day Dog Designs
Mom made me a special fruit and ice cream birthday cake:
most exciting of all the recipe is going to be featured on Tuesday, July 10 at Kol's Notes, one of the absolute coolest blogs out there. To quote our friend Kolchack it will be "woofing awesome."
Since my exact birth date is unknown my celebration continued on Sunday with a long walk in Hoboken, Weasley tagged along.
We stopped by the Bagel Smashery and mom and dad got me a smashed plain bagel with cheese. I was feeling so generous from all my birthday fun I even shared it with all of my canine siblings!
I would have shared it with the cats too but they don't seem to enjoy cheese bagels, so in honor of my big day I had mom slip them some extra freeze dried chicken bits.
Hope your weekend was as awesome as mine!
