How Old Ladies Celebrate

Well, you all might be wondering how a Greyhound celebrates the event of her fifteenth birthday.  I was a little stumped about it myself when I started thinking on it.  Fortunately, I think she had a pretty good time. 

She got special dinner -- Blue Buffalo Blue's Chicken Stew.

There were a few presents.

We had some birthday cookies.

She had homemade carrot cake with bacon in it.

Then, the party was over.

We are so happy that she has had such a good fifteen years and that her day was a happy one!

  9. What a grand party for a grand dame! May she have many more!

  10. Looks like a great birthday at any age. I'm just glad you didn't get her stationery and stamps. Ann Landers always used to advise getting those for elderly lady relatives. Never sounded like much fun to us.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  11. From the looks of the last few pictures, you gave just the right gifts to your dear 15 year old girl and I'm sure the party was a success!

  13. Happy Birthday Blue!!!! Aren't you glad those staying up all night to party days are behind you?? :p

  14. You all be some wild and crazee pawty animals! Morgan be looking at that cookie like it be a bug. Mebbe she had too much Blue's Stew and be seeing things wot is not there.

  15. It looks like everyone had a greyt time!

    We have one of those water dishes. Mama put Velcro on the bottom of it so that it sticks to the carpet in our Jeep and it doesn't move when we are traveling.

  16. Awww.... a beauty of a day, wonderful! Hope there are many more to come for her and everyone there!

  17. Home made carrot cake with bacon in it ! Sometimes I'm so glad that dogs can't read - you'd be hearing the door bell ringing round about now.

  18. That cake does sound like a dog's dream. Based on their happy snoozing faces, I'd say that all your dogs had a wonderful time.

    As for sweet Lilac, she looks angelic.

  19. Ooops! When my momma furst saw da title of your post, her thought it was gonna have some helpful tips on how to celebrates her own birthday. bummer.

    Butt, after seeing it, we were smiling and smiling at da most Regal Queen Lilac enjoying HER day with her faithful subjects.

    and judging by everybuddy's post pawty relaxations, da day was a success!!!

    (I still thinking my momma may need some of da Blue Buffalo stew fur her birthday, though)

  20. I feel just like I was there with LILAC... beclaws... you will not believe it butt I had Blue Buffalo chicken Stew for MY supper last night too!!!
    That was a fantastical pawty you had for her. I think you should give us the Recipe for the Carrot and Bacon Cake. That was beeeeeutiful with the pretty "L" in Lilac. What kind of icing was that??? YUMMMMMMMM
    I want to thank you for sharing this wonderful celebration with us. I hope we have another 15 of them with Lilac.
    Happy Birthday... again Lovely Lilac.

  25. Whoa! What a super terrific pawty Lilac had! But she deserved every single bit of it, that's for sure! (My mom thinks carrot cake with bacon sounds pretty darn good to her, too!)

    My mom's granddad always used to say, "And a good time was had by all!" I think that most definitely applies here!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  26. So glad Lilac enjoyed her day. Judging from the sleeping pictures, it looks like you all had fun! I just LOVE carrot cake with bacon and I am only a few hours a way! Say the word and I will have Josie Posie drive me down to see you in her new wheels.
