I'm 7!

As of yesterday, I'm officially 7! Firstly I would like to thank EVERYONE for your kind wishes. It was truly a wonderful day with loads and loads of food. I started off with a mutton bone...

chomp chomp

Then my M started preparing the food for my bday. She spent the whole day in the kitchen chopping, cooking, mixing stuff, and of course I helped as well.

Firstly, it's dessert for the humans. I had to constantly make sure everything was done perfectly.

Kitchen inspector at work!

My M made some peach cream thingy but she forgot to take a picture of the end product. And she also made a boo boo. We had a can of sliced peaces in our cupboard but as it was not enough, my M bought another can the other day. Spot any difference?

Spot the difference

Yeah, instead of peach slices, she ended up with apricot halves. Can't blame her, the photo looks so identical. So in the end she had to make a trip to the supermarket just to get another can of peaches.

Then it's off to make chicken broth for the rice. Aunty G asked my M if she used those prepacked chicken broth and I would like to assure her that it was made with real chicken, because I saw it, and I even ate the necks.

Made with real chicken!

The neck...

The broth...

And we had lamb patties....

And shepard's pie...

The making of.... shepard's pie

And this is what the completed bento set looks like. The humans were all asking my M if it's dog or human food coz it looks so edible.

Bento set... chicken rice, shepard's pie and lamb pattie

Of course I had to make sure again that everything is up to standard.

Darn, it's covered up!

Well, I did something bad as well. Remember the chicken bones used to cook the broth? I stole and ate two carcasses. You can't really blame a dog if the food is dog height, can you!

(M: The food is dog height because the kitchen counter ran out of space!

Anyway, my M complained to Aunty V on MSN about me stealing but Aunty V was away from her computer. When she saw the message, she called my M to tell her not to punish me since it's my birthday and I can do anything I want on that day. Unfortunately, her call came too late to save me from a few koks on my head. But it was still very gallent of Aunty V to try to save me, thank you Aunty V!

And she and Aunty S even baked my birthday cake, with my name on it!

Say... Herbie

As usual, the birthday dog gets the first bite. I started with my name...

H is yummy.... chomp

... while Scuba looked on, wondering when he can get to eat...

Scuba: Hurry up, Herbie

And my friends loved the cake as well.

Too busy to talk...

I would like to thank everyone who came, and for the nice humans who brought my friends to the park, and for ther nice presents.
