Birthday! Awards! Gifts! Pictures! ... FUN!

Well, most (if not all) of you guys know that today, yes TODAY, is my FIRST BIRTHDAY!!
"Happy Birthday to me..."

I had a busy birthday, starting off with a (long) Easter petting zoo/pony rides! (I even got to meet the Easter bunny!). My Raiser did pony rides - I was watching her the whole time, it sure looked like fun!

After the petting zoo, we drove over to puppy class (yes, with horse trailer & all!). And I got to do puppy class on my birthday, I had lots of fun. My Raiser did have to hand back the harness... but we enjoyed it while we had it!

All through out puppy class, I was handled by another lady (and My Raiser handled Duchess), I did MUCH better than last puppy meeting and my Raiser was proud.

After doing many distractions with treats/balls/flags/children/brooms/extra, my Raiser's dad got a horse & llama out for all the puppies to see! That was a big hit...

We then headed home after puppy class, I was quite tired, didn't even know I still had gifts waiting at home!

Later on, my Raiser let me open my gifts, then she took me into the kitchen to make DOG TREATS, homemade dog treats! (recipe came on my birthday card from SEGDI - my school). While they cooked, My Raiser took me outside in the 2+ acre fence (complete with the mud puddle...), I played with my new toy, old toy, and the people!

Coming back inside I got FRESH dog treats, then got a extra (not much) helping of supper. Now I plan on going to sleep...

Busy day, right?

The gifts I received are: A pawesome throw toy from my Raiser, a cool "spa" gift set from my Raiser, 2 really tasty gift bags from people in puppy class and a cupcake from another Raiser!

P.S. Lola & Booker Man (maybe others - I don't remember!) passed along these pawesome awards to me (thank you!) - I will hand them out to other people in another post - as my Raiser wants to go to bed soon! Thanks guys for the awards, I love receiving things!

(Note from Raiser - "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOBY - I LOVE YOU!")

Thanks "mom"!

All photos have been put in a smile box slide show (I will post a "making cookies" one later on) I would have posted all the photos, but that takes quite a while!

Hope everyone had a great Saturday,

Hi there Toby! This is my first time to visit your bloggie and I like it very much. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! It sounds like you had an oh-so-busy and happy day today. Guess what? We have something in common. Tomorrow is my Gotcha Day and also my birthday (cuz we don't know when my "real" birthday is so we just made my Gotcha Day my birthday too). If mine is half as good as yours, I can't wait!

Wiggles & Wags,
