Sissy Burpday! (Observed)
It's my sissy's burpday! Since her real burpday is on a Monday and Mondays stink because for some reason our burpdays are not yet national holidays so the slave apes apes have to work we are celebrating this weekend! I adopted my sissy two years ago from a shelter in Maryland where they were suspiciously enthusiastic about unloading her (she had been returned from an adoption once before so I think they were worried). So we have to celebrate in style.
Yesterday I had to put together a list of things for the apes to get for my sissy for her burpday. Top of the list, of course, is my grinning mug! She should probably have a big framed picture of me she can gaze at whenever she wants.
And I told them to get some gift wrap to wrap her not so secret admirer MaxyV.
And then I told them to get her a whole bag of her favorite thing--tennis balls!
And then they went to Happy Dog, Healthy Dog, the fancy shmancy doggie store and got us loads of treats like liver pate, and liver snackies, and mumpkin flax cookies and.....
RABBIT! Mmmmm...Aunt Jeni's rabbit! Not food FOR rabbits but food OF rabbits. It comes highly recommended from my friends Buko, Narra and Jacks. Here's what it looks like!
It's green because they mix it with the fruits and vegetables and parsley and whatnot (so dogs like my picky sissy won't notice they're eating their veggies).
It may not look good but it smelled and tasted FAN-TAS-TIC. It was so good we BOTH begged for it. Even my sissy who is nonchalant about food. This is what we did as soon as the ma ape opened the container. There is a video of me making some embarassing sounds. I'm in negotiations for rights so it won't get posted on the Internets. We'll see. We couldn't wait until today to eat it so we had a rabbit dinner last night.
Today my sissy gets to open her tennis balls and we go to the park to play and we get MORE SNACKS! I saw the ma ape making Nanook Paws for us to have later when it is HOT. Just to clarify, Nanook Paws are doggie ice cream using Nanook's recipe. We're not actually eating Nanook, though we wish he was here to celebrate with us! We could compare fluffy butts! And I could share some tips on how to be the Perfect Big Brother. (The key--burpday presents you can share!)
