It was Millie’s first birthday on Monday (July 9th) and I still can’t believe how this year has sped by already, of course it means she has only been with us for around ten months but it still seems like yesterday when I fetched her through the door for the first time *sigh*. Anyway, unfortunately she wasn’t able to celebrate on the actual day as she was feeling a little poorly. She looked under the weather all morning and then decided to lunch on some grass, and we all know what that means! So the party was postponed.
Yes, party! In Millie’s case a tea party, with a pink Hello Kitty theme. Parties for the pups have become a bit of a tradition. In fact I’m guilty of making more of a fuss of their birthdays than my own. But why not? truth is it’s fun for all four of us (even better if Nanna and Grandad join in!). We don’t invite any other pups along, at the minute three is a party anyway but in the future who knows?
Anyway by Monday evening Millie was back to her usual tearaway-self so we were all good to go for Tuesday. We began the day with an extra long mid-morning walk that the pups followed with a lengthy nap when we got back home. While they were napping I got things set up; I iced and decorated the Pupcakes I had previously baked (if you are interested in the recipe please say, I’ll be happy to share), laid the Hello Kitty table cloth on the floor and blew up lots of pink and white heart shaped balloons. Ellie and Myfie are a fan of party clothes and hats for their birthdays, but Millie isn’t so keen on either and it’s much hotter at this time of year so we gave those bits a miss. The cakes went down well as usual and in record time, they all three know the drill so excitement levels were high! then they were washed down with a small amount of decaffeinated tea. Only the best for my pampered pooches don’t you know! Finally, to burn off those extra calories the girls and I played Keepy-ups with the balloons (Myfie hid behind the sofa … wimp) until they were all burst, the tongues were all out and the pups (and me) were ready for another nap!
Happy Birthday Millie, till next year! x
