Happy Birthday Dad Dad!!!

My dad dad had a birthday yesterday. I wanted to go shopping a get him something, but they don't let doggies into the shopping centres here. You gotta be an "assistance dog" to get away with it. I posed an argument that I am an excellent "assister" - but centre management didn't buy it. Poop!

Anywho - I gave specific instruction to my mum for the perfect gift:

First we had to get the perfect gift wrapping - one with doggies on it of course - then mum helped with the card.

Before dad dad could go off to the gym, I insisted he receive and open his gift. Here's me handing it over.

A big bag of choccy Bullets - choc covered liquorice bits - he loves em! But I'm not allowed to help him with the QA of these!

Mum also gave him a card and gift.

What's in there??????

Oh yea - he's wanted a new DAB+ digital clock radio for a while now.

Mum did some baking for his Birthday too. (*aroma sniffs*)

And she also made a frosting in the saucepan. (*licks chops*)

And all that turned into a cake! But because it is a Nigella Lawson "Devils Food Cake" it has LOTS of dark chocolate in it. You know what that means furends......... an unhappy QA pupster  :-(

I got a consolation prise of a dehydrated chicken foot. Not for the squeemish I know...... but it was YUMMERS and I nommed it all up.

Changing subject - my dear mini schnauzer mates from England, Dexter and Louis, are having a fun event over on their blog. They want pet bloggers to send a photo of themselves having a fun time in the Summertime. Click HERE to go to all the instructions. My mum downloaded the button but not the magic link (she's not that clever). I made it into week one's photos - but you still have lots of time to enter - all of JULY.
