Guess who had a birthday today??

You get one guess, so make it a good one!

I’ll give you a little hint:

That’s right!  My boy Tweed celebrated the big One Four today.

He wanted a pawty, and because he is 14 and gets whatever he wants, that’s what he got!

A whole bunch of his friends came to help celebrate.

But only Tweed got to eat the cake.

Just kidding.  He was very generous and shared his cake not only with his doggie friends, but also with the shelter dogs.

And what a freakin’ AMAZING cake it was!  I mean how many dogs can boast a truly personalized cake?  I almost called this entry “Tweed on his 14th birthday” because he really IS on his 14th birthday (cake)!

Tweed’s friend Mia made this cake because my cake decorating skills are on par with my rocket building and alligator wrestling skills (ie, skillz – i don’t has them).  Mia has all kinds of talents (except baseball) and because she loves Tweed, she wanted to make him a special gift.  She could also make YOUR dog a special gift on his birthday or special day – if you want to know more, contact us so we can tell you more!

It was crazy amazing.  It looked just like him!

Tweed and I are amazingly blessed … we have had 14 wonderful years together and doG willing, many more left.  I work with a fabulous group of people and a boss who let us have a party for Tweed at work.  We have fun and wonderful friends who helped us celebrate.

And we have a beautiful family to share our lives with.

Happy Birthday Tweed, handsome boy!  You’re the icing on my cake, Tweedles!

    Happy Birthday, Tweed! I can’t believe your “mom” tortured you so much with that beautiful cake right in front of you while she took pictures – hope it didn’t smell as good as it looked. Glad to see you finally got to put your face and teeth into it. Many returns of the day, Tweed!

  9. Happy birthday Tweed! That cake is amazing…what a special gift. Love all the photos…especially the family shot. I can’t believe they all stayed still long enough.

  10. Happy birthday Tweed! from Amelia basenji, who did not get a cake with bacon rosettes on HER 14th birthday!

    Gawd, Tweed in that family photo. “Yep, you’re not counting wrong. Don’t trust any of them.” Love that face!! Happy Birthday, Tweed, you handsome devil!

  16. Tweed, I love you, may you have many many more birthdays! Thank you FL for sharing such a wonderful family with us!

  17. Happy belated, Tweed! I can’t believe it’s been that long. I fondly remember him has a mere youngster more commonly known as Tweird. Haha!

    I also can’t believe his lack of grey. Bella is totes jeally!

    Happy birthday, lovely boy, Tweed. He has become more and more magnificent with age. He really is something and living the life of a retired athlete hunk.

    Happy belated birthday, Tweed! Leave it to you to make a face smeared with frosting look almost dignified.
