Today is our sweet Carrleigh's
3rd birthday.

We told Mom we thought
she should have a cake.
But you have read some of Mom's
cake making stories
and you know we really
don't want her to make one.

So we looked on the internet
and found this cake.
Don't you think she would like it?

Or this one?
She has been playing
with a rabbit that lives in our granary.
But so far she hasn't caught it.
It would be pure magic
if she did!! BOL!!

But Mom had a different idea
on how to help Carrleigh.
Since the puppies are
over 3 weeks old now,
she decided it was time
for them to have a bit of puppy food.

She softened some puppy chow
in warm water,
added a bit of milk replacer to it
and mixed it all together
with her emulsion blender.

And the puppies loved it.
Hamish acted like he'd been
just waiting for Mom to bring it on.

After they ate
they had a bit of dessert,
then a sip of water.

Mom washed their feet and hands
and put them in their basket.
They were very patient
while their bed was being changed.

And now Carrleigh and the pups
are all resting.
So are we.

And guess what?
Angus is the largest puppy
and they all weigh over 2 pounds now -
they came into the world
weighing an average of 8 ounces.

Happy Birthday Dear Carrleigh
from you pack.

Happy Birthday Carrliegh! Glad those pups have finally given you a break with the foodables schedule.

My breeder mom says that I was the runt of the litter and got left out at the foodables tray sometimes and that is why I am a greedy piggy now.
