My 1st Birthday

I’ve never had a birthday before today so when I realized the big day was coming up, I thought I better research what this whole birthday thing is about. From what I could tell it meant getting dressed up, partying with friends, eating lots of food and getting presents. What more could a girl want? First things first, I needed to decide what to wear.
The perfect birthday outfit.

Next I called up some of my Sausage Dog pals and invited them to come pawty with me. We really painted the town red! We hit up the beach, the park and probably went a bit too hard on the treats. Don’t worry though, I made sure to save some room in my belly for my birthday cake.

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, out came the presents. Have you ever tried unwrapping gifts without opposable thumbs? Let me tell you it is not an easy task but where there’s a will there’s a way and I got there in the end.

This seems like a good place.

It had all been so much fun, I’d partied with my friends and gotten some great presents but I’m a girl with a sweet tooth and I couldn’t stop thinking about the birthday cake. When was it coming? What was it going to taste like? Would I have to share it with the others? Finally, the moment I had been waiting for, out came my cake. It was everything I had dreamed it would be.  I was about to dive in when the humans said, “Wait! We have to sing the birthday song first.”

This is my “let me eat the cake” face.
I tried to be polite while they sang but it smelled so good and I was so hungry from all of my hard work unwrapping presents. So I said, “It’s my party and I’ll eat cake if I want to!” It tasted just as good as it looked, I don’t know how I’ll ever go back to that dry food they give me.

Last but certainly not least, I have to send out a huge round of licks and sniffs to my fabulous furiends from Instagram who cyber celebrated with me. Having you party with me was the cherry on top of my birthday cake.  Make sure your volume is turned up for this one!

I’m heading off to sleep now. All this partying really made me tired and I don’t function well when I don’t get my 15 hours of sleep in.
Licks and Sniffs,
