My First Ever Birthday Cake!!!

I turned five years old two months ago in February. As usual, I spent the day at boarding because Dad, Mom and Ashley had to spend Chinese New Year with their family in Singapore. This time, I spent my birthday at DB Dog Dayz. The owner of the DB Dog Dayz sent Mom some photos on my birthday, you can see me busy making new friends.

When I returned from boarding, I was thrilled to see a package waiting for me! It was from Augie and Ti!!!! A stuffed bunny and a cute sweet pea baby for my sister, Ashley!!! Valentine's Day was around the corner and they sent me a big red heart and cute little Valentine cards too! Thank you guys for your wonderful presents!!!

Another package arrived! Lamb, carrots, apples and treats from Auntie Felicia! I had birthday feasts four times in total with all that food! Thank you very much, Auntie Feli for all the yummy goodies!

I also received three e-greetings!

Thank you, Kimba!

Thank you, Parker and Daisy!!!

Thank you, Augie and Ti!!!

Augie and Ti asked me "Where's the cake?". Sadly, I never had a birthday cake for my past birthdays, the closest to it was the "Little Cakes" that Mom baked for my fourth birthday.

So for my fifth birthday, it was decided that I should finally have a real birthday cake! We asked our pals, Augie and Ti for a recipe and they happily shared with us here: Let's make doggy cakes!

Big thank you to Auntie Ellen for baking the cake for me. I am happy to report that it turned out perfect! Thank you so much Augie and Ti for the fail proof recipe!!! It is super yummy and I enjoyed it very much!

Grandma Connie came to visit and so all of us went to Penfold Park for a belated celebration.

The weather was very good and I had a fabulous time! Check out my birthday video below:

Happy Birthday, sweet Dino! You look like you had a marvelous day, and what a great doggie day care - they sent your Mom photos! We are going to borrow the cake recipe and try it for Monty's Gotcha Day which is coming up!

Augie and Ti's mom said...

Happy birthday sweet Dino! We remember when you were a tiny pup on Youtube--now look at you! Glad you had such a great day! Many more! XOXO

Hi Dino! Sorry this is so late but belated Happy Birthday! Looks like you had a great time and what an awesome looking cake!

Oh - and I can't believe how big Ashley has grown! Such a little lady now! :-)

By the way, I just noticed that my blog alert in your sidebar seems to be stuck on an old post from several months ago! I changed over from Wordpress to a self-hosted site then and although my URL has stayed the same, maybe it didn't go through in your blog software? Anyway, maybe you need to take me off the list & then put me on again, so that it shows the correct latest update? My blog URl is still:

Hey! And I'm having an exciting new contest! Come over to my blog to check it out! I remember you having some great dance moves - I remember that video of you dancing with your human long before in Taiwan (before Ashley arrived) - so I hope you might think of entering! I'm sure lots of doggie would love to see you in action - and maybe Ashley would like to take part in your routine too! :-)

Such a nice birthday you have celebrated Dino, may you have many more like this. I have to celebrate one for my little cat in coming Saturday. I will adopt the same plan, celebrate it in a park with delicious cake.
