Bentley's Bayou Birthday Bash

"A group shot with some awesome friends from left to right; Bailie, Ruby, Chewy, Me, Emma, Mika, Pierre, and Koda."

Bentley: “Wow!  Thank y’all sooo much for all of the birthday wishes.  I had so many visitors and it was so much fun.  I’m going to have to rest my tail from all the wagging.  I have lots of party pictures, so I’m going to try to not talk too much.  *snicker  I was answering the comments that you left, but Mom said it was time to write our post.  I’ll get back to everyone as soon as possible.  I want to give a special thanks to Ruby for her Ruby~rita truck.  It was definitely a hit.  I could tell some stories, but what happens on the Bayou, stays on the Bayou!  A big hug to our pals at Love is being owned by a Husky for their beautiful sparkling card.  My sweetie Emma gave me a very special card.  I may or may not have gotten a hug and kiss.  Bassets do not kiss and tell.”
"Yummers, Pumpkin Pupcakes!"
Pierre: “Are there any pupcakes left over?  Gramma did a great job on those.  I didn’t know that she could make them for real.  I was so full after the party.  I was only going to rest my eyes for a minute.  Dude, it was squirrel-thirty before I woke up.”
Me: “Both of you fell asleep until your dinner bowls clanked on the counter!  It was nice that everyone helped clean up from the party.  We really have some terrific friends.  Our little family celebration was much quieter.  I served y’all canned stew with mashed potatoes for dinner.”
Bentley: “Then, it was time for PRESENTS!  Woo Hoo!  I got a spiffy new collar,
a squeaky stuffless alligator, a treat jar, a ‘green’ poop bag canister, and an edible Basset birthday card.  Now, for reasons that I can’t explain, Mom and Dad bought me a bowl from Martha Stewart that is supposed to make me eat slower!  I will let you know how I feel about it after a couple of meals.  The most exciting thing that I got was a PrideBites disc with my face on it!  It was like looking in the mirror.”  *mind blown!
"I sat like a gentleman while they sang Happy Birthday."
Pierre: “I can’t wait to sink my teeth into to your face!  ROFL!  Sorry, I couldn’t resist.  It is really cool, but I am going to stick with my PrideBites squirrel.  I don’t want you staring at me when I’m busy in attack mode.  That doesn’t mean that I won’t snatch your gator toy.  Gramma, may I have another cookie?  You really outdid yourself.”  *Wide-eyed innocent look with rapid tail wags
Me: “Sure, go ahead.  They were super easy to make.  I used to make a gazillion gingerbread people and houses.  They are the
"These will turn anyone into a cookie  monster!"



same texture and easy to pipe with plain yogurt icing.  I’ll post a how-to one day soon.”
Bentley: “Did y’all enter my Favorite Things giveaway?  Believe me, you do not want miss your chance for this prize package.  Beginning tomorrow, we will tell you each and every gift that you can win.  It’s over $100 in prizes.  Just sayin’…Thanks again for all of the love and friendship for my special birthday.  I truly am the luckiest Basset Hound in the world!”


We are thankful to be co-hosts of Thoughtless Thursday’s Blog Hop with our friends Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a Husky.  Hop on for the fun.
