On Saturday daddy brought home a huge box. It smelled really good. Daddy said I couldn't have it and put it in the refrigerator. Then mom and dad spent a lot of time cleaning the house. I knew that people were going to come over. Mom even washed both my dog beds. She wouldn't let me eat my cookies in my bed! I must admit there were lots of crumbs in it. Mom said I had 5 cookies worth of crumbs! On Sunday morning the door bell rang. A man delivered another box! This one smelled even better than the first one! Mom and dad left for a little while and came back with balloons. They always smell kind of funny. Then mom and dad did even more house cleaning. After lunch they started making their lasagna. They made 2 of them! Now I really knew that people were coming! I just hung out in my bed and watched. It was a little after 4 when the door bell rang again. It was Julie. She is a friend of ours. She had a bag with her. Mom put it on the glass table that Ben likes to roll around on. A few minutes later, Aunt Carla came with Gil! She had a bag with her too. I was happy to see Gil. He was my boyfriend for a while, but now we are just good friends. Later more people started coming over- and more dogs! Mom's friend, Jen came with her daughter, Anna and their corgi, Willy. This was the first time I had met Willy. He had very short legs! He was cute though. No one made fun of him even though everyone else had long legs. Next Mark came with his new friend, Catherine and her greyhound Roscoe. This was the first time I had met Roscoe too! he looked a lot like Gil. He was very nice and I liked him. Everyone who came brought begs for Ben's table. Some of the bags smelled really good. We sat and socialized for awhile and then the humans all ate food. I never think it is quite fair that the humans get food and we don't! Roscoe feels the same way. He was trying to tell everyone that we wanted food too! We had to wait. Finally daddy got the boxes out from the refrigerator. Everyone sang "Happy Birthday to YOOOOUUU" I started to roo. Daddy made a movie of it. I will put it on Dogster soon. Everyone laughed and then we got to eat! The cake was yummy. It had beef, peanut butter, carrots and liver. The humans had a chocolate cake. Us dogs also got milk bones. It was worth the wait. Next mom opened up the bags. Everything in the bags was for me! I got a lot of toys! Mom put them all in my bed. I didn't have much room left for me! My friend Skylar came late with his dad, Jeff. I got to go out to the yard and run and play with Skylar for a few minutes. That was fun. We all had a great time. I was sad when everyone left. It was a nice birthday celebration.
