Cass's Sweet 16 Birthday Pawty - 28 Nov 2017

Yesterday was The Princess~Queen's 16th birthday. Of course, such a momentous occasion deserved a special celebration!

It started with yogurt and leftover turkey schnibbles with breakfast, special treats, and, of course, a Pawty!

Here are some pictures of the outdoor festivities. (I have video, too, which I may add a link for if I can ever get signal enough to upload it )

Cass loves the Buster Cube (or the Kibble Kube, as the Pack refers to it ) and is our best roller:

Everyone follows Cass, cuz she's where the kibble is!

Cass will roll that thing forever if you let her....or unless she gets distracted by her favorite toy. Decisions, decisions. Ball or Kibble Kube, ball or Kibble Kube...

While Cass is deciding, Brier has located a Dangerous Denizen in the Big Yard and springs into action.

"It's a Snake!! I'll get it!"

"Throw the ball, Ma! Throw it, please!"


Finally, after the festivities die down, the Pack pauses for a Pawty Portrait to mark the occasion:

Great looking photos - everybody seems to be having fun- especially Brier playing with the "snake".. I'm with Barkingdog, I thought it was a real one too.

The funny thing is that I found it kind of hard to believe that there was a snake around at this time of the year. It's a bit chilly for them now.

All the "family" looks really good.

Thanks, guys.

Yep--way too cold for real snakes, but English setters are known for their grasp of drama. If they can't find something exciting, then they make it up! Hence, Dangerous Butterflies and Villainous Vipers (garter snakes )....not to mention Dastardly Red Squirrels! They like the toys, though, because they can actually catch those and rip 'em up!
