Monday Mischief-Norbert's Tenth B-Day Blast

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
   and mom says I am getting a tag to go with my new collar from Fetching Tags but it hasn't arrived yet.   I also got a giant bone cookie from Zoomies NYC.

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!


  1. Oh NOrbert, what a beautiful birthday weekend you've had, you deserve to be spoilt, you really do, but so kind of you too to share your goodies too.
    We like the look of that delicious cake, we'll be following this we think for Susie-Belle's first year anniversary coming up in August. And cheesey bagels, yummy yum, SusieB is salivating at those, I'll have to see if we can rustle up something similar for her to enjoy, thanks for the inspiration :)

  2. Norbert we are so glad you had a good weekend. Have a happy Monday!
    Best wishes Molly
