Princess~Queen Cass still rocks at 7!

Princess~Queen Cass woke up and found that she'd turned seven!

44776
"Well, this deserves a party! A girl doesn't turn seven EVERY day, y'know!"

But before the party could start, the Hazel Run Mama made the Hazel Run Pack take their after-breakfast naps.

"Don't want any upset tummies, so I want you all to rest!"
44778
"Okay, Mom!"

That didn't keep the Princess-Queen from opening her card while she waited:
44777

Finally it was time for the festivities to begin.

The Pack ran out on the deck and waited patiently at the gate...
44779
...and then thundered down the steps and across the yard to kick up clouds of dust under the Pines where the grass doesn't grow...
44780

44781
"Pffoooey! All that dust makes my ears itch!" complained the Princess~Queen.

First off was a perilous but oh-so-exciting hunt!

44782
"There's a Villainous Mouse in the garden!!"

44783
"Your Majesty, come help me look for the little Varmint!"

The Hazel Run Mama came out on deck bearing Kongs.

"Anyone want to play a Kong game?"

Villainous Mouse was forgotten...

"First the Birthday Girl gets to play," smiled the HRM.

44784
"Throw it for me, please, Mom..."
44785
"...so I can retrieve it, over and over..."
44786
"...and over till we're both exhausted!!" :cloud9:

Finally, though, Her Royal Majesty took pity on her loyal subjects and allowed them to play a little, too.

44788
"Aw, c'mon, Princess~Queen! Won't you share?!"

44789
"Okay, King Ember, you can play, too..."
44787
"...and anyone else who wants to can join in."

As Princess~Queen Cass watched her subjects enjoying themselves in the yard she was distracted by a rattling sound behind her. The HRM had brought out the Bestest Birthday Toy Ever--the Kibble Kube! Roll it around and it drops delectable kibble here and there along the way.

The Princess~Queen is the best Kibble Kube Roller in the Pack!

44790
"I command you to roll it into the yard!"

The HRM makes the first toss...
44791
...and the Princess~Queen begins rolling Kibble Kube down the hill with the rest of the Pack following along, hunting for treats in the grass.

Eventually, Sheriff Cole tries his paw at Kibble Kubing.
44792
"No, no, Sheriff! You can't chew on it. You have to roll it! Let me show you!"

Out of curiosity, what do people say when they've come over to your house to the first time? When I tell people how many cats I have they are like holy %^#$^#%@#$ but it's easier to hide kitties then doggies :laughing:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your doggy then! looks very good for her age ;)

hazelrunpack
November 28th, 2008, 09:22 PM
A quick explanation and short demonstration later, and Sheriff Cole found himself rolling Kube along almost as quickly as the Princess~Queen could.

44793
"Thanks, Your Majesty! You're a great teacher! This is easy!"

The Sheriff shared a little kibble with Princess Lil Belle.
44794

Even after Kube was empty, the fun didn't end. The HRM tossed a handful of kibble out into the grass.

"Okay, everyone! Time for a Treasure Hunt!"

44795

It was a yummy morning!

hazelrunpack
November 28th, 2008, 09:27 PM
After the Hunt was over, it was time for some rough-housing in the Side Yard.

44796
"Think ya can take me, Punk!?"

In the free-for-all that ensued, even the Sheriff got rolled a few times.
44797

And after a good chase-and-roll, there's nothing quite like nibbling on the juniper...:rolleyes:

44798

"What the heck are you guys doing?" asked the HRM. :confused:

"Making our breath piney-fresh," barked Princess~Queen Cass.

hazelrunpack
November 28th, 2008, 09:34 PM
The sound of a diesel engine echoed across the yard. The cabin owner to the west was pulling out on his easement road.

"Is that Mr Raymond? Gotta go say 'hi' to Raymond!!"
44799
The Thundering Herd headed for the deck.

"Mr Raymond! Mr Raymond! Where are you going? It's okay--we'll make sure everyone knows you're leaving!!" barked the overenthusiastic Pack.
44800

Mr Raymond honked, waved, and drove off down the road. The Pack gradually fell silent.

Such an exciting day! So many suddenly tired dogs!

"Time to come in for naps," called the Hazel Run Mama.

hazelrunpack
November 28th, 2008, 09:42 PM
Not a moment too soon, either.

Warm sunlight and comfy beds in the living room beckoned. Pack members sprawled out, curled up, and snuggled in, each to his or her preference, and were soon snoozing. Gentle snores filled the air.
44801

"Did you have a good party, Princess~Queen?" asked the HRM.

The Princess~Queen didn't answer. She was sound asleep, chasing Kibble Kubes in her birthday dreams...

44802

the end

happy birthday, Princess~Queen Cass!

We don't have a lot of company! :laughing:

But the people that do come are always warned first. The Pack can be...well...let's say "overwhelming" when people first arrive. :rolleyes: Thankfully, though, they settle down pretty quickly.

hazelrunpack
November 28th, 2008, 09:48 PM
Thanks, aslan! They're all sleeping pretty good right now. :D

Jennie, it brings tears to my eyes, too... Once they settle down, I have to do housework... :yuck: That's enough to make anyone cry! :laughing:

And there's always a little something for them in the cards, too. :cloud9: Cass is feeling rich cuz she could go out and buy half a bag of dog food right now if she wanted to...and it would be hers...all hers!! :dog:

They love barking at Mr Raymond. Not sure what Raymond thinks about it, though... :o

Thanks for the birthday wishes, Auntie Frenchy. Cass sends a slobbery snuffly kiss...

:laughing: same here , last week , I went to a small store we have here , all products from our area. Mostly cheese. There was just one customer and myself. The owner made us taste jam .... and I used the same spoon to taste the second sample .... the other lady customer saw me do it and laugh while she said : omg she used the same spoon.

I went :o :sorry:

I think I hang out too much with my fuzzbutts :laughing:

hazelrunpack
November 28th, 2008, 11:09 PM
Aha!! The Double-Dipper strikes again! :laughing:

If it had been madame hazel, most, if not all, of the jam would have ended up on my shirt before it reached her mouth! :o

The story of Cass's bday party was GREAT!! You guys are adorable!!
For the record ladies, my hubby won't take me out either cause no matter what I do I always end up with Mastiff drool on my leg befor I go out the door. lol:laughing::D

hazelrunpack
November 28th, 2008, 11:31 PM

Aw, thanks, Auntie LP! :dog:

If you come, you get your own kibble and Kong. :D Auntie Frenchy will have to share with everyone else, though, because I understand she's a double-dipper anyway and won't mind. :laughing:

Frenchy
November 29th, 2008, 12:00 AM

But yes , I would probably be comfier eating my meal in the pack's company , they won't judge me :laughing:

Thanks, diandpat. I love birthdays around here, too...which is a good thing considering there are nine of them to keep track of in the house! :D

All of them snore now and then, but the littlest one is the loudest snorer! :laughing:

Cass's birthday is the last one of the year. :sad: Our next one isn't until May 22. That will be Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie's birthday, and she's hoping that it's really muddy that day! :cloud9: The Hazel Run Mama, on the other hand, is hoping that Mud Season will be over by then. :o

Belated Birthday Greetings :lovestruck: Beautiful Cass :lovestruck:


I loved the rough housing and free-for-all pics :thumbs up and, of course, the snoozing pics :cloud9: but my fave was saying goodbye to Mr. Raymond .....too cute. :lovestruck:

I was also amazed at how well all eight of your fuzzbutts play with a kibble roller......no way will my TWO share one. :frustrated:

November 29th, 2008, 03:20 PM
You'll notice Brier is not in the toy or Kibble Kube pics. :frustrated: He's fine until someone gets in his personal space...found it out the hard way. So now when the toys and the kibble come out, he gets a Kong and a lonely stay in the Side Yard, watching all the action from the gate (and barking his head off... :rolleyes:) The others get along great, though--never a growl or an argument (knock on wood, :fingerscr, :goodvibes:, kiss a toad...oh, wait, they're all hibernating now! :eek: Uh-oh...I can't complete my anti-jinx ritual! Now hazel is in trouble! :o)
