We Celebrated Mom's Birthday

We started the day by warning Mom and Dad of dangerous thunderstorms around 4AM. Since it was Mom's birthday, Dad took us downstairs and put our favorite CD, Through a Dog's Ear: Music to Calm Your Canine Companion, Volume 1 and we all fell asleep on the couch. Mom woke up around seven just in time for the second storm and Dad gave her birthday presents before going back to bed. I thought he got a pretty good night’s sleep with us on the couch.

Since it was rainy, Mom and Dad decided to spend the day doing some shopping and spending the rest of it with us. We got to play with our Nina Ottosson Dog Brick Interactive Dog Toy. Mom and Dad seem to have as much fun setting it up and watching us play as we do finding the treats. They even brought it out when Grandma and Grandpa came to visit on Sunday. As shy as Katy was, she refused to miss her chance to play and boldly walked into the room to take her place in the game. Mom and Dad were not sure if she would even play with Grandma and Grandpa in the room.

As part of Mama's birthday weekend we did get to see Grandma and Grandpa and that was fun. Katy was shy, but she spent dinner wrapped around Grandpa's chair much to everyone's surprise. She even touched Grandma's foot before she left which seems to be her new sign of acceptance into the tribe.

Grandma and Grandpa are going to be coming up for the concerts on the common. Dad always takes me, but he was worried about Katy. Mom thinks she and Katy might stay home together. It is going to be a fun summer.

  1. Happy Birthday to your mom!

    Katy was very brave. She will soon learn the grandparents are very good people!

  2. Happy Birthday! It was our Dad's birthday too, and Norbert's as well!

  3. Happy Birthday! Sounds like Katy is coming out of her shell a little bit, but the thunderstorm sounds scary.

  4. Happy Birthday to your Mom!!!!!

    My brother is going to be reviewing that toy very soon!

  5. Look like you are staying Pat on you blanket. Thunderstorms don't bother me to much.

    Hope your Mom had a pawsome Barkday.


  6. It's a busy birthday month! Being from a different area, I can't say I am a fan of that *Patriots* blanket, but you're lookin' good on it!

  7. Our mom's birthday is around the corner, too! But she's keeping it low key (typical woman!). Happy Birthday - and we'll bet your mom was so happy that you helped her celebrate!

  8. Happy Birthday to your mom! Wow I clicked on the link and that puzzle game looks exciting. No wonder Katy liked to join in the fun too with that puzzle game. Oh how I do love my treats! I think I would tear that puzzle game apart if I couldn't get my treat out of there.

  9. hope your mom had a great birthday!
