Well, my birthday never did happen yesterday. That's right. I went to bed sad and with a belly full of dogfood. But not because my human forgot about or doesn't love me. At least I don't think that's why.
Because according to my human, the reason my birthday never came is because Monday is a really bad day to have a birthday. At least if you want to eat cupcakes to celebrate it.

Apparently cupcake stores are closed on Monday. Yeah, I know. It sounded like a pretty lame excuse to me too until she showed me pictures of the CLOSED signs on not one but TWO cupcake stores.
Then she told me some story about the time she rescheduled her 30th birthday because her dog Moby had cancer and needed help going to sleep that day. Of course she totally forgot about moving the Big Day and was supersurprised when all her friends celebrated her Big 3-0 a few months later.

Best birthday ever, she says.

So even though I was kinda really mad about not having any birthday yesterday, I'm pretty sure good things are on the way soon. Like, TODAY. I mean, it makes total sense. Why settle for a Monday birthday with no cupcake when you can just wait until Tuesday?

I'll keep you posted on whatever goodness happens. It seriously better be awesome.

The cupcakes have landed. At least I think they have. My human said I'm not allowed to eat whatever's in this box until later.


Isn't it already late enough??

Ugh. More soon.... I hope.

Oh. My. Bacon. Some serious birthday goodness just happened.  

Serious goodness.

You might have to wait til tomorrow to read about it though - I'm kinda full and really need to sleep some of it off. Must make room for whatever's in that Noe Valley Bakery box.

I will give you a hint though: starts with bacon and ends with... BACON!

How crappy that the bakeries have conspired to ruin your birthday. I just know your human is going to put something nice together for you.

The very bestest things are always worth the wait and remember too, the longer it takes before you celebrate, the longer it'll be before you have to wear the dreaded cone party hat.....

Happy **BIG 4** Birthday, Puglet.

Ahhh, that explains it! It's hard to go out to eat here (or anywhere, probably) on a Monday , unless it's a chain restaurant. I guess people & pugs don't need dinner or cupcakes on Mondays =/ Still, you're a blessed pug; you went to BED with a FULL belly. Lots of pugs don't have beds or bellies full of dogfood. I hope to adopt one someday & show him how good life can be =) In the meantime, I can't wait to see what your human has in store for you! Lots of love from me & the 'boys' Bruno & Diesel ♥♥♥

I firmly believe a birthday should last for a week or more.
Take my birthday - it is July 4. Just TRY to arrange a birthday party on July 4! It ain't gonna happen.
I am glad your big day can happen today.
Love Noodles

Oh man...I just know it's going to be awesome! It has to be cuz you've waited so long now...and been so patient about it...I can't wait to hear all the good stuff that goes on today!

Birthdays last at least a month, so not to worry Pug. We know your human has something planned. How couldn't she, right?

Have the best birthday week ever Puglet! Yes, we think one day is too short so me and mom believe you should have at least a week for everyone to wish you a happy birthday. Much love from your Chicago pal ~ Jaco

Darling Puglet,

HAPPY 4th Birthday. Yes! You should have an entire week for your birthday with BACON every day and cupcakes, too. Make trips to as many cupcake stores as you can. Maybe you can find bacon cupcakes.

My hooman says that when she was little she used to eat hotdogs with bacon wrapped around them. Sounds like birthday food to me.


Pearl and Tessa said...

So glad you scored, can't wait to hear the details. Our human is on her way to buy us a maple bacon donut at Icing on the cupcake...in honor of your birthday.

Brutus, Ellie, Pippa and Otto said...

Mmmmm - BACON!!! Sounds like your having a great post birthday celebration :)

Pugs & Kisses,

Brutus & Ellie
