King Ember and Princess Lil Belle's 6th birthday party!

Time to party! :pawprint:

Princess Lil Belle and King Ember of Hazel Run turned 6 on 27 August. And, since such a momentous occasion could not go uncelebrated, the royal siblings hosted a birthday bash.

41229
The Princess and the King received their guests on the deck.

41230
Princess Lil Belle rolled out the first Kong and the festivities began!

Tap, tap, tap ..... anxiously awaiting more pics and hoping HRP line connections hold up :D.

The Hazel Run Mama was kept busy throwing the Kongs.

Grace tried her paw at retrieving one...

41235

...and then waited patiently for the Hazel Run Mama to come get it and throw it again!

41236

Brier pointed out that perhaps Grace should bring the Kong closer to the HRM.

"Pshaw!" whuffed Grace. "She needs the exercise!"

hazelrunpack
September 7th, 2008, 11:13 PM
Brier thought to himself that those Kongs looked quite chewable...

41237
So he stole Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie's and lay in the grass testing his theory.

"Hrumph!" barked Ms Macie. "What a brat you are, Brier!"

41238
But having just spotted a Dangerous Butterfly wafting her way on the other side of the fence, she left Kong to the mercy of Brier and headed off on Butterfly Patrol. Keeping the grounds safe from Dangerous Butterflies was more fun...er...um...an absolutely necessary duty, anyway...

Bumblebees are fun...urm...dangerous, too....

After the Kongs were tired and the Winged Varmints were vanquished, it was time for a little sustenance. The Hazel Run Mama filled Kibble Cube, the bestest Birthday Toy ever, and Princess-Queen Cass carried it out into the yard.

41243

The Princess-Queen is the most talented Kibble Cube roller the Pack has ever seen.

41244
"Well, Your Majesty? Aren't you gonna roll it for us?"

Being a good Princess-Queen, Cass is more than willing to oblige her subjects.

41245
The whole Pack enjoyed snarfing up the tidbits liberated as their gracious Princess-Queen rolled Cube about the yard.

September 7th, 2008, 11:35 PM
But alas, even the bestest Brithday Toy ever eventually is emptied of goodies. The Pack had time to sniff Cube disconsolately for only a few seconds before the Royal Birthday Siblings announced the next entertainment.

"Gather 'round for a special treat!" woofed King Ember.

"Put your paws together for the Hazel Run Dancers!" yapped Princess Lil Belle.

Amazing Grace and Deputy Brier got up bashfully and took center stage and the dance began.

41248
Bow to your partner...

41249
Promenade!

41250
Meet in the middle and do-si-do...

hazelrunpack
September 7th, 2008, 11:40 PM
The Pack began to thump their tails as the pace of the dancing quickened.

41251
Twirl your partner!

41252
Take him down and trounce his tail!

41253
"Hey, Grace! That's not part of the dance!!!!"

"Hee hee heee", laughed Grace dancing away with Brier in hot pursuit.

The Pack barked with laughter.

hazelrunpack
September 7th, 2008, 11:54 PM
Alas! As is the case with most things, the fun can't last forever.

41254
"Sorry, Brier," panted Grace. "I'm pooped."

"You sure?"

"I'm sure."

The pair stood up and made their bows to the watching Pack. The Pack thumped their tails in appreciation.

Grace and Brier then turned and made their bows to the Royal Birthday Siblings. The King and Princess bowed regally back and turned to the Pack.

41255
"Thank you all!" barked King Ember.

"Yes, thank you all for coming," yipped Princess Lil Belle.

"Time to rest up for dinner!" called the Hazel Run Mama, and the birthday party
came
to
a
close.

happy birthday, king ember and princess lil belle!

The End

Beautiful pictures. Your dogs are so pretty. I love setters. I must admit the English are the ones I've always liked the most. The variety in yours shows how different they can be.

hazelrunpack
September 18th, 2008, 09:37 PM
But you know, rainbow, we really can't blame her too much. She's been postin' her lil fingers to the bone--not just this thread, but the fashion show thread! :D So madame hazel's done good this month. :thumbs up

There. Do you think that will assuage her? :eek: She's a real b**** when she gets mad! :crazy:
