I am Four!

Today is my birthday and I turned four! The day started out as usual but when Barbara came home from her lessons she had a bag from Phydeaux, my favorite store.

I got two new stuffies for my birthday! The yellow one is a great tug toy.



You may wonder why I don't look terribly excited about my new stuffies. It is because Barbara is singing "Happy Birthday" to me and it sounds ghastly. I tried to hide my head and pretend I didn't hear it.



These are great stuffies though (even if I did have to endure her singing to get them). Now I just have to keep Ambrose from getting his puppy cooties on them or farting anywhere near them.

After I got my presents Barbara took me to the park for a walk and then a drive out in the country to a most wonderful place.



The cows at Maple View Farm make delicious ice cream and the store is filled with it.



Of course I couldn't go inside but Barbara went in and bought me a dish of Butter Pecan ice cream!



She fed it to me on the spoon because she was afraid if she gave me the dish I would eat the whole thing in one gulp!



It was delicious and when I was almost through she let me lick the cup to get every creamy, yummy drop.





What a great birthday treat! More please?



I am one lucky Gordon Setter.

Happy Barkay, Niamh! I've never tried butter pecan ice cream before. From the look of your face it must be delicious! I'm glad to see that you had a great day and that goofy little Ambrose didn't spoil anything for you.

Ayla said...

Hi Niamh,
Happy Birthday! Wow - you are four! The toys and the ice cream were great presents.

Sorry to hear about Ambrose's 'problem.' I think it must be because he is a boy. It's a real bummer when they do it in the car. At least it's summer and you can put the windows down without freezing.

Your friend, Ayla

Happy Happy Barkday!

Wow! Stuffies and treats! Life is grand! Sorry you had to suffer so much with the human "singing" - I know that can be just awful!

I hope you can keep the little farter away from your brand new, stink-free stuffies! I would hide them if I were you!

Barks!

Happy Belated Birthday!! So sorry that we missed it, as you may have seen from our bloggie, things have been a bit tough round here. I had a birthday just two days after you but didn't manage to celebrate cos of what happened.
Your toys look great, and that ice cream looks yum!!! :)
