The Birthday Party Planner

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about my busy day yesterday.

You see, there’s an important event happening this week at our house.  Tomorrow, Flattery will celebrate her birthday for the first time as a member of our family.  She’ll be three years old, but she hasn’t ever had a party or celebration, so of course, I felt that we should make it a really special day for her.

City Sidewalks -- Tales and TailsIf you’re going to have a birthday party, that means you have to do some shopping.

I made a list of the things we would need and told Mom and Dad that I needed a ride to town to get some special things.  Our first stop was the dog bakery, which is very important for a birthday party.  They have some delicious dog cakes there and I wanted Flattery to have the very best for her first official celebration.  As it turns out, they had one frosted in her favorite color, too.  So, I resisted picking out a pretty pink frosted one and got one with purple frosting.  I also made sure we had a can of Grammy’s Pot Pie so she can have a special dinner.

After our stop at the bakery, we headed to Petsmart.

The Milk-Bone jar was getting low and I needed to pick up a present for her, so our shopping still wasn’t done.  On our way inside, we saw a large Doberman who apparently had no manners.  He was more than a bit uncouth, unlike most of the Dobermans we meet.  He was jumping around and carrying on as soon as he saw us.  We stopped on the sidewalk and let him go inside with his human, thinking that would be the end of the spectacle, but we thought wrong.  As we went in, he’d dug his toes in to the rug and wasn’t moving until we came in.  I let him sniff my ear, but I really wasn’t impressed by his manners.  His human finally pulled him along into the store so we could get inside, too.

He wasn’t the only dog we saw, either.  One thing you can count on in Petsmart on the weekend is that you’ll see other dogs in there.  The rest of the dogs we met were quite well-mannered, which made me much happier.  Even Flattery behaved herself and didn’t even jump around when we saw some little dogs in there.  Fortunately, we didn’t meet any cats, or this might be a rather embarrassing story.

In between all that socializing, I did manage to pick out a toy that I think Flattery will love and some treats so that the cookie jar won’t be empty.  I have my paws crossed that she will like all her stuff and have a great third birthday.
