I Finally Get My Birthday Ice Cream

After several days delay I finally got to celebrate my 6th birthday with a trip to Maple View Farm to eat ice cream. We stopped on the way to pick up my boyfriend Trotter and his person. Trotter had to ride in Ambrose's kennel in the dog-crate-on-wheels. I hope he didn't get any Ambrose cooties.

We left Ambrose and Trotter's little sister Scout at home. I don't even want to think about the havoc they would have created if we brought them along. Maple View Farm would never have been the same.

We waited on the porch with Trotter's person while Barbara went in us our ice cream. It was pretty hot but we knew the ice cream would cool us off.

Barbara bought us each a cup of Honey Toasted Almond ice cream which was so delicious I can not even describe it. It was so creamy and sweet.

Look how nicely Trotter ate his ice cream. He is a very polite guy.

Here is a close-up of me making sure that I lick every delicious drop off of the spoon.

Barbara let me lick the cup when it got down to the end. I can barely get my muzzle in the little cup but don't worry, having a long tongue is very useful. I didn't leave anything in there.

You can see that I have a little bit of ice cream on my chin.

Even though it was a belated celebration it was still a great treat for my birthday. I am so glad that Trotter came with us.

Barbara says that now that I am 6, I am middle aged!! Very rude of her especially when you consider how decrepit she is!!!!

I Am Six Today

Today is my birthday! I am six years old. I was supposed to celebrate by going to Maple View Farms and getting some ice cream. My boyfriend Trotter was going to come along. Unfortunately we had torrential rains all afternoon and really bad thunder and lightning so the outing was cancelled! I am so disappointed.

I don't like the rain. I don't like to get my feet wet and the rain makes my fur all frizzy. Instead of a fun outing Barbara sang "Happy Birthday" to me. You can see what I thought of that!

I hope the weather clears up so we can reschedule the birthday ice cream trip.

Yappy Hour

Can you believe it has been over 5 weeks since I have blogged?? It is disgraceful! My person has been very slack and I think that I am going to advertise her in the paper "Free to a good home". Of course she has her excuses about work and her modem issues blah, blah, blah, blah. I have been doing many interesting things, training and playing and I wanted you to know about them and find out what you are doing too.

This week we went to a very fun event called "Yappy Hour". It is a fund raiser for Chatham Animal Rescue and Education. Dogs are allowed to eat and socialize on the patio at the Carolina Brewery in Pittsboro. When I say we, I mean me and Barbara. We left Ambrose at home since we didn't want to create a commotion. Of course he cried his eyes out when we went without him.

Here I am at the entrance to Yappy Hour. Barbara paid $10 and I got a big biscuit, she got a drink and chips and a Tshirt.

I sat politely next to our table waiting for some food.

She ordered a barbeque sandwich. It smelled great but Barbara wouldn't give me any because she said it was too spicy for me. I don't believe that - I think she just did not want to share. I did get most of the french fries though.

There were about 15 other dogs there, most of them very well behaved.

Look at this cute little guy under the chair.

Of course many people admired me because I was so well behaved and I did hear a couple of people refer to me as "gorgeous". I got lots of petting. One of the waitresses gave me a good ear rub.

I had a great time at Yappy Hour and of course was glad they raised money for the dogs and cats that CARE fosters. The next Yappy Hour is Monday, June 20th from 5:30-7:30. I plan to be there and if you are in the area, you should come too.

AMBROSE HERE. Yes, I was highly insulted to be left out of Yappy Hour especially when I smelled all those french fries on Niamh's breath when she got home! However I have been busy taking a tricks class and playing with my girl friend Scout.

After chasing around we always wrestle and play bitey face.

I hope Barbara will take some pictures of me doing my tricks. I have learned to beg, spin in both directions, circle around her, crawl and roll a log. It is a lot of work but I don't mind since I get bits of hot dog for doing the tricks.

Glad to be back blogging and we will check in with all of you this evening.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose
