Yesterday was Pierre 3rd birthday and we had a great time. The boys were itching to tell y’all about it.
Pierre: “We partied down with our bad selves yesterday, didn’t we Bentley? Whew, that was so much fun. I don’t know why grown-ups dread their birthdays. I want another one again today!”
Bentley: “I have to admit, it was a good time. I got kinda suspicious when Mom cleaned
and they loaded us in the car. I just
knew that we were gonna end up at the vet.
My nose went into overdrive when we got out at the park. I love the park. It was a great idea to have our cookies at
the park. Of course, if we had a dog
park in our area, it would be better, but I didn’t mind sharing the place with
those little humans. At least none of
them tried to grab me with sticky candy hands.” *Shudder*
|"Climb up here and slide down Bentley!"|
Pierre: “Why didn’t you swing? Gramma picked me up and set me inside one of the baby swings. It was so fun. I really liked the playhouse thing, too. You looked like a worker at a drive-thru window when your head stuck out. I cracked up laughing at you.”
|"Just a swingin'.."|
|"Would you like fries with that ma'am?"|
Bentley: “Hee hee, I tried to get that little girl to order fries. It’s a shame she didn’t speak dog. That would have been a hoot! It was fun climbing those stairs. We don’t ever climb stairs. I felt just like Rocky when we got to the top. It’s where our cookies were and I liked them best of all.”
|"Please pull around to the second window."|
Pierre: “Yeah, that was obvious! You ate yours in like two seconds, and then tried to snatch some of mine. Seriously, I was the birthday boy. Why would you want to eat my happy birthday cookie too?
Bentley: “Because it was there my friend, simply because it was there…and you eat soooo slow. Did you see those giant ducks swimming in the bayou? They could have come bit your tail and swiped your cookie. See, I was trying to save your life. My eating part of your cookie was pretty much heroic. Just sayin…and you’re welcome.”
Pierre: :Wow, thanks Bentley. I guess I never looked at it that way before. Some of those ducks looked pretty mean.”
Bentley: “It’s all good. That’s what I’m here for, to protect you and eat your treats. It is in the Official Dog Big Brother/Uncle Handbook, but you don’t qualify to read it. Just trust me on this one. I’ll look to see what it says about your new toys.”
|"I got lots of goodies!"|
Pierre: “Aw man, I hope it doesn’t say that you get to play with my toys. Did you see all of the cool presents that Papaw and Gramma gave me? I got two of everything, so I suppose that I’m supposed to share all of the treats. We each have a Jones Natural Chew rib. You know Miss Flea from JNC reads our blog and I want to tell her how much I love her ribs. She does visit people and bring treats for their pets. Maybe she can come see us some time. Of course, you’d probably pull out your stupid handbook and claim all of the treats for yourself.”
Bentley: “They aren’t actually Miss Flea’s ribs. She works for the JNC company, but
visit people and always has treats. I
hope that she comes to the Bayou.”
|"Happy Birthday to yooooou!"|
Pierre: “Of course, if Miss Flea did come to visit, you’d probably pull out your stupid handbook and claim all of the treats for yourself. Anyway, there’s a lot of goodies that I’m willing to share. I got more Louisiana Alligator treats, some Greenies, a fun Jolly Tug toy from JollyPets, and some Zuke’s Berry treats. Gramma said that she’d read a bunch of reviews about Zuke’s and everyone loves them.”
|"Wow, these ribs looks fabulous! I am|
definitely going to have to increase my
Bentley: “Well, clearly there is only one way to tell if any of these are good. Let’s taste one of each. Wait…wait…Mom! What are you doing? Why are you putting all of the treats up? Those are Pierre’s birthday treats. How can we tell whether we want to endorse these products? Think about the blog Mom! Our poor readers are desperate to know if we give these goodies our prestigious 5 paws. Come on; give us at least a couple of those berry treats.”
Me: “Bentley, you have eaten way too many treats for one day. Y’all can have a bedtime treat but that’s all. If you want to tell everyone about which treats that you like best then well do a review another day. Pierre, you need to thank Jenna and her Huskies from Love is being owned by a Husky for your beautiful
|"Let's Paw~ty! Woo Hoo!"|
Pierre: “Of course, I thank them very much. Can we put it on the page for everyone to see? I want to show them all of my birthday party pictures too. I appreciate all of my friends wishing me a great day. It was so much fun and I’m gonna go mark my calendar for next year’s birthday.”
Me: “Don’t forget to enter for your chance to win Indigo Fresh Dental Bones, Sticks, and Dental Sauce for your pup! Just click the icon on my right sidebar! Good luck!
