My Upcoming Biwfday

Tomowwow is my fifth biwfday and I wanted it to be special, I saw on some othew bloggies that some fwiends did a commentathon on theiw Biwfdays (you know, donate some gween papews fow evewy comment left...well, my piggy bank is not soopew full, but I can give $.50 fow each comment, but whewe to donate????? )

so I called my gweat fwiend , the mayow of blogviell, the honowable Fwankie Fuwtew fow his advice

hewe's what he said:

Dearest  YOUNG Furend,
      Five is a grrrreat age to turn..  I know beclaws I did it back in May.  hehehe
      I had to give this a little bit of thought... butt I was thinkin that you could...   put the names of all the commentors in one of your lovely Paw Bags (purses)  and pick one...  and that lucky "winner" would get to choose who the green papers would go to. 
    You are soooooo right... there are so many who Deserve help. 
  THIS is a very VERY much generous thingy that you are plannin.  I am like YOU.. it is better to give than to receive.
Hope this helps a bit.
Hugs from my hill to YOU...  Birfday Girrrrrrl. "

speaking of phones, 
my fuwwiends fwom the Woad Dog Tales called me eawliew this week to intewview me about mommi's paintings
I was sooo honowed, 
they awe feetoowing the intewview on theiw Awtsy Fawtsy Fwiday today pleeez go visit them and wead all the clevew things they ask!

Now that I had a plan, I decided to celebwate.
My sweet Gussie Love came to pick me up in his Gussie mobile and we went fow a wild wide..he said I could wide wif him any time...sighhhhhhhhhhhh 
he also vewy thoughtfully awwanged fow me to have an aftewnoon wif my giwlfwiends getting pampewed at a spa (my BFF Lacie said i weally needed it now that I am OLD)

I even got a pedicoowe

aftew that I went to the wooftop that I'm getting weady so all of you can come and celebwate wif me...I know I'm a day eawly, but these things take planning and time and I want it to be pawfect ...when you come pleez help youwselves to dwinkies and cake, and wemembew evewy time you comment, It means anothew fifty centses to help some fuwwkids in need

I know my Biwfday will be pawfect wif youw help and since i aweady have evewything any pup could want, we can just celebwate being togethew .
Any comment today FWIDAY, and tomowwow SATUWDAY will count towawds the gween papews!!!!! so come and join the fun!!!

(I will let you know the wesults next week, along wif mowe about  my fifth Biwfday celebwation)

SMOOCHIE KISSES fwom an almost five yeaw old

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

The night has passed. Asta, with Lacie by her side, is looking worse for wear. The intital piece of Birthday Cake is still intact and glued to her black skirt. Lacie, while flirting with another guest, bumped Asta's paw sending a shower of orange smoothies all over her blouse. Asta, after dancing with Gussie, was enjoying some CRUDE I TIES with dip. Lacie begged for a bit and a large blob of sour cream landed on Asta's shoe. She stepped quickly, trying to avoid the splatter which was a mistake. Scruffy, not really understanding the difference between NYC curb and roof laws had made a grievous error which Asta most unfortuneately stepped in.

Lacie asks Stanley to get a napkin, but the big Dale has just filled his tummy from the extensive number of water bowls thoughtfully provided. His juicy beard drips on Asta's gloves.

Lacie, never good in these types of delicate situations requiring tact, tosses her red curls back and begins to giggle...and giggle.

Asta, by this time has reached the end of her dental floss, much less her leash. She looks into the face of her BFF and notes that Lacie's couture outfit (borrowed from Asta's closet) remains pristine and looks as fresh as when Lacie absconded with it.

Asta erupts. Her paws reach for something...anything...which happens to be a new large gooey birthday cake which has just arrived to replace the one which Lacie has already demolished.

Forgetting her gloves, she rips off hooge chunks of cake and tosses them at Lacie's back...hitting her squarely on her widest angle. Lacie gasps and turns quickly....mouth still open...it is quickly filled with lemon raspberry cake which Asta tosses with abandon, making Lacie look like she was attacked by an enthusiastic groom at a wedding.

Lacie grabs a hooge chunk of cake and hurls it at Asta's jacket...



Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

The cake hits Asta's Burberry jacket with a sickening S P L A T. Asta looks up startled as the rest of her guest proceed to grap chunks of cake and hurl them at each other. Scruffy picks up an entire round layer and drops it off the roof, landing with a thud on top of some dog running down the street towards Asta's building...he looks up startled...it's Gooberstan. Hoo boy...this party gets more and more interesting.

As the food fight escalates into chaos, Lacie suddenly screeches for QUIET. She wants to present Asta with her birthday pressie.

With cake covered gloves, Asta opens the large box wrapped in orange paper. It's a new invention and beginning of a new BIZNESS for Lacie. It's a small fan...a dog walks in front of it...turns in a 360 circle...and instantly their outfit and furs are drycleaned. The guests and Lacie all stream by the fan. Stains dissappear like magic. Shoes are cleaned...the fan is pointed to dirty plates,floors and tables...POOOOOF....clean...!!!

Lacie hugs Asta and screeches...


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanny!!

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...
