Celebrating My Birthday

This morning--the day AFTER my real birthday, we went to the Devil's Elbow to play with our friends.
SHE didn't take any photos because SHE says you've seen heaps already.
 We stayed for an hour and a half and ran around like crazy dogs.
Afterward there were NO BATHS!
(Of course, we weren't allowed inside.)
We were surprised when we were loaded back in the car later and went to Sandy Beach, which is my (Bella's) favourite place.
 I swam, Roxy annoyed me, and Daisy  investigated stuff.
Can you see me out here?  Roxy doesn't come out this far.
 Then I dug a  hole in the sand, while Roxy annoyed me.
 And got covered in sand!
 We  stopped by the Sports Grounds on the way home
 to run and dry off.
This picture was taken two days ago.  We haven't seen these things in a while.
 It was BATHS when we got home, naturally and naps.



That's supposed to be a 4 because I'm 4 now.
 I could hardly wait for the photo shoot to be over!
 It was made of minced (ground) beef with cottage cheese icing and decorated with pureed vegetables.  (Baby Food)
 It was absolutely fabulous.  There was nothing left over.
 There are fresh bones in the fridge, but SHE said we'd already had too many snacks today.

As if....
We've NEVER had too many snacks in our opinion.
It was MY kind of Special Day!


  1. That certainly was a special celebration!
    Your cake looked delicious.

  2. Oh Bella you truly did have a fabulous day.
    Still drooling over the cake...
    Toodle pip!
    PS How did this ridiculous concept of "too many snacks" originate anyway?

  3. A special day for a very special 4 year old. What a cake !

  4. Ha ha look at all that sand in your furs. Wow that cake was just brill. Glad you had a special day. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. OMD what a wonderful birfday you had!!! Even though my mum is over heres sayin' her knows all bouts a devil's elbow...just ignore her.
    Did SHE make your cake? It looks absolutely scrumptious.

    Hey, I was wonderin' if Roxy was annoyin' you? BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!


  6. OMD OMD Bella We think that you should just declare it your BIRFDAY WEEK... and celebrate it like THIS every day!! OMD your CAKE. YOUR CAKE is GORGEOUS. SHE did a super job with it. Cottage Cheese Icing and decorated with that pretty yellow 4 is BRILLIANT. We were Drooling ALL over the Keyboard. So Sorry that Roxy kept gettin into your stuffs. She is SO much like Ernie. No Wonder they Love each other so much. Like two Pea Brains in a pod.
    You enjoy the REST of your Birfday WEEK Bella.
    PeeS... Ernie can't talk to Roxy today... beclaws he is OUTSIDE. BaaaWaaah.

  7. I could make a HUGE DENT in that cake but I sense I'm a little late. Oh well!

    Grand time for ALL.....even if Roxy annoyed you some!!

    CHeers on your 4th!!


  8. OMD, that last shot of you is just great !!! Too bad about the baths, but that cake would have made us endure the agony of baths too. It sure looks delish, and so easy to make too:)

    Happy #4, Bella!!!

  20. Bella, you do know we have heard of snow dogs, but sand dogs, now that's new, and our answer to that is, WHAT A MESS, but we bet you had a ton-o-fun getting to look like that!

  24. happy birthday Bella!! That sure was a fun day and I am that cake!!

    Jazzi and Addi

  25. Sounds like it would be a great day for most of us. Though I have to confess despite living close to the beach, it is not my favourite place. I do not like sand between my toes and I hate water - other than that it's great!

  26. Yay, Happy Birthday! What a wonderful day. You had non-stop fun and then you had the most incredible cake that I've ever heard of!

  27. That looked like a wonderful day and wowza on that cake. I love your new header picture. I bet Roxy just wanted to play, it looks like she is biting your tail in one of the pictures(snickers)

    Loveys Sasha

  28. What a fantastic way to celebrate your birthday, even with a bath.


  29. WOW WOW WOOOOOOOOW!! What a PAWSOME day Bella - you're mom REALLY knows how to make a birthday special. And the cake!! O...M...D we literally dragged mom over by the sleeve to take a look at it - it's Sammy's barkday next month and he would LOVE a cake like that.

    We are so glad to see you had a wonderful birthday.

    Wally & Sammy

  30. Bella we send you a wonderful and loving happy belated 4th barkday wish!!
    What a scrumptious cake you had too. OMDs did your mom make it?
    We also love your new header...seems fall is arriving Down Under.
    Hugs all around

  31. OMD, happy barkday Bella! That looks like such a fun day, and my what a lovely photo at the top of your dogblog, you all posing so nicely under that tree! That cake looks amazing; Mama no even goes through that much effort for our peoples!


  32. What a special, fun day that really did check all the boxes! As you know Todd's birthday was this week, and he just got a cookie--But don't say anything, he was happy with that! :-)

  33. Woof! Woof! WOW! What a celebration. Oh MY! What a CAKE! DELISH and TASTY! and you guys shared. Happy Celebration ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  34. Looks like you had a great day, I LOVE your cake I am so going to get Her to make me one next year.

    Also, She lied to you. There is no such thing as too many snacks...

  35. Wow, what a great birthday except for the bath part. But it does look like you sort of needed a bath. Sand and dirt in the bed makes for an itchy night's sleep. The cake look wonderful. We want our mom to make one for our next party. That would be Sebastian's gotcha day in July. Maybe if she starts now....
