Celebrating Francesca's Birthday!!!
Posted by Sharkey
Today is December 13th, which makes it Francesca’s birthday. Good thing I remembered because last year I forgot and I haven’t heard the end of it ever since! This year, I even got creative in the kitchen and made a special treat.
1 G.K.! Watch the door and tell me if Francesca is coming up the stairs! I told her to run outside after one of those pesky squirrels.
2 I needed some time to work on her birthday surprise. I'm making meatball cupcakes for our celebration! Our Franny turns 7 today!
3 Don't worry, Sharkey! I'll be your sentry. Wow, I can't believe Francesca is 7 years old!
4 Hmmm - I'll use some white rice as jimmies. Well, G.K., Franny is 7 in human years. Some would say she's 49 in 'dog years', but that count is not actually accurate!
5 It's because dogs reach maturity much faster than humans! By age 2, for example, no longer a puppy, I was considered an adult dog! Humans are still babies at 2. Hey G.K., how does my cupcake look?
6 It looks delish, Sharkey! Boy, Francesca is going to be so surprised! How very exciting!
7 I think I hear Franny coming! Quick, G.K., let's light these candles!
8 How pretty! And delicious looking! I don't really eat red meat - I'm more of a pescetarian lately, but I just might have to steal a bite!
9 Wow, is this for little old moi? I was afraid you two had forgotten my birthday again!
10 Sharkey, this cupcake is simply beautiful and I feel so honored! Now to blow out the candles and make a wish...
11 It's sure hard coming up with a wish when you already have everything a dog could want, and you two are at the top of that list! Thank you so much!
