Happy Birthday Papa!

March 20/ 10
This was me last Thursday night:

It's true. They made a party at my cousin JoJo's house and they didn't even THINK of inviting me. Not so much as a courteous "we'd love to have you, Chef, but it's a people party."

All they said was, "Be a good boy tonight, Chef. Bye."

"Oh yeah?" I thought. "Well I'll think about it...maybe I'll be a good boy and maybe I won't. Maybe I'll just unravel some toilet paper and trail it all through the house."

But I ended up just laying there all night long in my big old pillow, sulking. Do you blame me?

All I had was a couple of rawhides to chew on while the rest of the family ...

... ate this ...

... and this - that's my brother Daniel doing the cooking ....

... and this ...

... and they drank this ... OMG !!

And will you just look at the birthday cake they had??

So I lay there all night chewing and thinking. And instead of doing mischief I thought that I should just be happy I have such a fantastic Papa because he loves me so much and he takes such great care of me. And he lets me lick the bottom of his yogurt bowl and he swings the broom around so I can bark at it and have fun. Plus shabillions of other things he does for me day in and day out.

So ...

I'm very glad you enjoyed your party, and -



By the way, Papa has to have another operation in a couple of weeks to remove some more lymph nodes. The doctor found a teensy weensy bit of bad cells in his big lymph node so his surgeon is going to take a few more out. He's not looking forward to it at all so I've been doing a really good job of nuzzling him and giving him lots of loving, healing snorts.

Mama and I want to thank all of you again for your continuous good wishes and prayers for Papa. It's so good to know that we have so many good friends out there who we've never even met but who care so much. Big, big (((hugs))) to all of you.

Looks like your Papa had a super fun birthday party with yummy food. I'm sorry you got left out but am glad you were such a good boy while staying home alone. Sorry he has to have more surgery but that way they can get all of that nasty melanoma. He will be all better very soon. You are such a good boy!

Chef! I think that it was better that you were able to celebrate with Papa in private. Just you two guys, right? So no sulking.

Good luck to papa with his lymph nodes. We will keep him in our thoughts.

You have the right attitude! That's not to say you can't make them pay later though. ;)

Belated b-day wishes!
