My Second Birthday

Hi everybody! It's me, Mitch and today is my 2nd birthday and I've been getting birthday wishes all morning! Thank you so very much!
PoopsieBlue featured me in a posting on her blog and Mona and her mom send me a beautiful ecard! Mona wrote, "I was going to get you a bushel of apples but the Mommy don't know how to get it on the computer! Have a wonderful day!"

And a sweet card from Molly and Taffy!
I can't believe all the friends I have! I'm the luckiest boy in the whole wide world!
I couldn't wait to open my pressie from Maggie! OMG, apple treats! You couldn't have given me anything that I would have liked more, Maggie! Thank you so much!Pawty time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my birthday cake! It's made in layers! It's an apple for the base and then you scoop apple ice cream over the top of the apple and then you decorate with dried apple slices! YUMO!Can you see me in the corner! Mom wanted to take a picture of my "cake" before I ate it all in 5 seconds flat! I had a very hard time being patient!Told ya it would be gone fast! I think Maggie liked it as much as I did!

Yup, look at her smiling away! Wasn't it just the best, Maggie!I've got to get every single morsel! We don't want to miss a crumb! Mom wants to add that I weigh 66 pounds and she's hoping that's the limit for me now that I'm 2 and hopefully full- grown! Keep feeding me all of this good stuff and I doubt it, mom! And she also wants to add that I'm 26" to the withers, whatever that means! What a fun day I'm having! I hope it never ends! Thank you all for your birthday wishes! I love you all!

Yer friend,

Happy Barkday Mitch!

It looks like you had a fandabidozi time, I am still very envious of the ice cream you get to eat.

I am not sure I like the sound of "withers", it sounds quite painful!

Eduardo said...

Happy Birthday Mitch! That cake looks great! Y'all have never had R.C. Cola Ham?!?! OMD! Y'all are missing out! You get a ham & use toothpicks to pin pineapple slices & cherries on the ham & then you pour half a R.C. Cola over the ham & while it's baking pour the other half! Do y'all have R.C. Cola? You can use your favorite cola instead!

OOOOOOOOO! Happy Second Birthday Mitch! You look great with all those treats! I have the apple treats too! They are awesome! I also have the blueberry ones. The human was tempted to eat one herself because they smell so good, but I gave her the "you better not do it!!!" look...

I hope you had the best day ever...and I hope your third year is even better than the last!

Goober love & smooches,
