I knew we shouldn't have slept in today! It took Mommy so long to get her day going that we didn't get to the mall till 4:00 pm! That meant I only had half-an-hour to get attention and pick out my birthday gift! Since it is my 1st birthday, Mommy thought we'd go to the mall where I could walk around and get some exercise where I wouldn't be too cold.
We went to Moochie & CO., a pet boutique in the mall, where I was lavished with attention by everyone in the store. I only had to demand attention from only a few people, but once they were aware of my presence it didn't take too much persuading.
We were on a mission to find a new toy or outfit for my birthday. I found a fuzzy stuffed duck that quacked when you bit into it. I told Mommy that I really wanted it, but she said I'd just pull all the fuzz off of it. Duh! Oh well. Mommy found a coat she really wanted me to have, but it was kind of expensive.
Instead, I got a Chuckit football player and a Happy Birthday cookie bone! I couldn't wait to go home and eat my bone! I hunted all over the house looking for my bone when we got back, but Mommy had to dampen my fun by waiting till after dinner. boooo. Oh, and Mommy also bought materials to knit a sweater for me.....uhhmm....we'll see how that goes....
Here are pictures of my fun day:
I was not too thrilled about having to wait to eat my cookie while Mommy took pictures. I kept looking at Daddy for help, but he was no use.
I was also not too happy about being given only a portion of the cookie!
Still, it was really, really good!
I really wish I didn't have to wear this silly hat!
Finally, I can play with this strange looking specimen!
