It's My Birthday!


That's right! Today is my birthday! I am five whole years old!

Can you believe that I was ever this small?



But now I am a most mature and handsome fully grown doggie. Hooray for ME!




Despite momma's many admirable qualities, using kitchen appliances and following recipes do not rank very high in her skill set. So it was with some trepidation that I accepted her offer to bake me a birthday cake.


As regards her kitchen impairments she did not disappoint. After a cursory glance at the cookbook she proceeded to put the livers into the blender for liquefaction, neglecting to add the milk.

The result was smoke billowing out of the contraption making a most horrible and not nommy smell. Note to humans - blenders are not for liquefying livers in the absence of other softening materials.

Subsequently, the batter for my livers cake was a bit, er, lumpy.

That is her excuse this time for producing a rather discouraging looking yet still yummy smelling birthday cake for ME.






I don't really think that it would be possible to combine livers, eggs, flour, oil, and cream cheese in a way that doesn't taste good, so bring it on!






Yummy! Just one piece? I was hoping she would put the whole thing in my bowl.





Yes, I let PeeWee have some too. I am not a brute.




Did you notice the writing on the cake? It was made with one of my new favorite foodables... cheese in a can! I was most keen to sample that directly.




Lucky for me, stupid PeeWee, still recovering from the trauma of the evil Vaseline, was wary of any new items that momma produced for us.




Thereby leaving the nommy cheese food ALL FOR ME!




Momma was a bit parsimonious with her dispensing of the cheese food and required encouragements from my large and need to consume the entire can self.






I thoughtfully provided an ample target for the meting out.






Gooberlishioush!






That's right, apply directly to tongue.







Check out this action packed cheese eating movie!





I give this stuff four paws up!

I also got an intriguing new toy for my birthday, but that will have to wait for another post.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Some of you might have heard about the big water pipe bust which has cut off clean water to 29 towns and cities in Master Chew Sits. Fear not! Our estate water is still potable given that my town has it's own private water supply which we do not share with anybody. But some of my pals have to bath in stinky duck poop water and drink bottled water only so it is most serious. Especially since the Dunkin Donuts cannot serve coffee. I expect mayhem if this does not get fixed with great haste.

Happy 5th Barkday, Mango!... and many more to come. It was nice of momma to bake you a cake or at least tried to, well it's the thought that counts. Love the suspicious look on PeeWee face with the cheese spray thingy... BOL. Have a great one, big guy!

Licks, hero

Oh, Happy, happy birthday, dear Mango. I wish I'd known so I could have baked a cake. Your Mom does have that well covered, though. Liver, eggs and cheese? Who cares what it looks like? It sounds like a gourmet masterpiece to moi! Have a wonderful day!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

OMD, Mango, we had no idea it was your birthday!!! Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Birthday to Mango Man. Pawesome cake - we wouldn't mind if it were lumpy - liver is good in any form. And the cheese in a can - we need some NOW. We can't wait to see your new toy.

We hear the water ban has been lifted, bet the DD line will be very long.

Have a great day and a wonderful year, Mango.

Jake of Florida said...

Happy Happy Barkday, Oh Relentlessly Hooge One -- It's hard to believe yo are only five years old, with all the meditative wisdom and insights you so generously share with us.

We're not so sure our mom will let us have that cheese in a can stuff -- but we'll make sure she sees how much fun it is and how easy to write messages.

Happy Barkday again,

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Twix said...

OMD! Squirtable cheese? Where do I get some of that stuff? Why has my mom been hiding it from me? That looks like the yummiest thing on the planet!
Oh my! Where are my manners? I just went into chow hound mode. Sorry.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY MANGO MAN!
I hope you get cheese in a can all day long!
Snuggles,

Busby and Raymond said...

Mango McDude! Happy birthday! Wow, liver cake, cheese in a can? Looks like an awesome celebration of your Mangoness. Nice of you to share with the paranoid (of cheese in cans) Pee Wee. We're the same age as you. (until October at least)

Hope the rest of your day is great too. (people in Master Chew Sits sure love their Dunkin' Doughnut coffee. Our sister in law in Barnstable is constantly yapping about it.) xoxo

Happy Birthday, Mango!

I heard about the water pipe bust. I'm glad you have clean water to drink. It is amazing how we take something like that for granted.

I can't wait to see your present! Yay!

XOXO

mayziegal said...

Happy, happy birthday, Mango! It looks like you're having the bestest birthday ever. I'm kinda jealous that your mom even ATTEMPTS to make you a cake cuz, well, mine prolly never will. (So deprived.)

I'm SO HAPPY you like cheese in a can! Isn't it the best? And wow - how lucky are you that Dexter is skeered of it? That leaves more for the Mango! My mom laughed and laughed at your video. I just drooled.

Oh Boy! Birthday Pawty in Mastif-chew-sits (she made me leave out the h in the last syllable...said something about family ratings). Cheese, glorius cheese! I love cheese too. Cheese icing...who knew? I hope you have a wonderful day and get lots of pressies and scritches. If I was there, I'd give you sweet Bonnie kisses all over yer snooter....while I helped clean off the cheese drippings.

Happy Birthday zoomies!

Petey said...

Happy barkday, Old Boy, you don't look a day over 4! That cake looks delish, lumps and all. Guess what? I met a 9-week old Mastiff puppy named Titus who just moved into our building. He already weighs 20 pounds, same as me. But he is not a Relentlessly Huge Mastiff--only supposed to top off at around 160lbs. His paws are ginormous big teacups. Make mine look like a chichuahua!

Your pal,

Petey

Happy Birthday Mango!! Looks like quite the celebration is going on at your house with a most yummy cake and cheese.

Gus said...

Happy Barkday Mango Man! We think the cake looks nummy, and we like the cheese idea. We get the whipped cream stuff squirted, but not much, and only when the can is almost empty. Pawsonally, I think we should get that every day, with maybe the cheesy stuff for variety.

Hey guess what... I have that same chesse squirter stuff at my house. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. My mom decorates my evening Milkbone snack with it. Then she lets some of it come out right in my mouth EXACTLY LIKE YOU TAUGHT YOUR MOM TO DO!! It is grrrreat.
Your cake was just BE U TEEE FUL. I wish I could have been there for your pawty. Thanks for sharing your mostest special day with us!!!
Glad you have waters. My mom saw that stuff on the TV and wondered about you.

Tucker said...

Happy Birthday Mango!!!! That cheese is super yummy, you should also get your momma to get the whipped cream in a can for you. Momma gets it and Dad steals it from the fridge and squirts it in his mouth. Momma yells at him. But when dad squirts it in my mouth Momma thinks it's cute.

woof - Tucker

Happy 5th B-Day to Mango-Man! Hope you have a great day and get to have the whole can of cheese. We hope our Mom sees this post and tries a liver cake for us. (Note to self, add Milk first). She makes us some yummy peanut butter treats but she says "liver" is sort of nasty looking. Again, hope you have a great B-Day Mango! Sniffers, The Hounddogs

Before finding this post, Mango, my Momma had taken my advice and posted a happy birthday wish to you on our blog. Happy 5th, young guy, and wishes for many more liver cakes!

Drools,

Samantha said...

Happy 5th Barkday, Mango! I think your Mama did a pawsome job with your cake - sounded and looked yumzers - besides... I saw you eat it with great gusto! But the soft stringy cheesables from a can ... well... I'm drooling all over the screen here and giving Ma begging looks heheh! Have a happy day and we hopes much of your state's water issues are almost if not totally fixed!

BRUTUS said...

Happy birthday, biggest buddy! Wow, 5 years old, eh? No wonder you are so wise. That cheese looked so good I was drooling. Speaking of which, I bet your momma had to do some serious mopping after that little video. Between cheese and drool falling on the tiles, I hope there was one of those yellow cone thingys with the stick figure of a slipping human to alert any random passers-by of the potential cheese-drool slick!

Enjoy your big day!

My dear Mango, you are for me the king of the dogs. I am pleased much to be able to rank you among my friends. I hope, you had a great day. I see the Liver cake...Hmmmmmmm and by the video I was very much amused. Unfortunately there is no cheese in a can in Germany. But if my mummy drives again into the USA, it will bring along that for me.

Looks like you had a great day - and FH says she thinks you haven't lost any of your cuteness - we told her us blokes don't always want to be told that, we'd rather be told we're butch and manly, but she said she's sure you wouldn't mind just this once....!

Happy Happy Barkday! Your cake looks amazing, and the cheese wow. I was a bit afraid of you in some of the still pictures because you kinda looked like Kudjo. I been told that Kudjo was only a character, but he was really nasty and scary. I know you are not Kudjo like, and you are sweet and nice.

Happy Birthday, Mango!!!!!

I can't believe you've only just reached 5 years (why did I think you were older?) - huh! You're still a baby compared to me - I'm going to be 7yrs old in a few months! :-)

That looks like the most delicious cake. You should count yourself lucky that you don't live with MY human who can't bake to save her life...anything she tries usually comes out as a black lump and the kitchen smells of burning for days afterwards...

And wow - cheese in a can? I've never seen that before! I must get my human to hunt in the supermarkets here to see if they have that too!

First time commenter-I love your blog. Just wanted to wish Mango a happy birthday! He is one handsome man! I might use the canned cheese as a training tool. I'm sure my dog would be all over that.

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Mango, a very Happy Birthday to you.
We did come by yesterday but were unable to comment!
We loved the pic of you with your party hat - you are looking so handsome and mature.
Cool cake. We never heard of cheese that comes out of a spray can!
We have seen cream like that - we do hope you enjoyed your day - it looked great fun to us.
We are now arguing about which of us would be able to date you - Martha will be four in the summer - not sure exactly when and Bailey was six sometime in January!
What are your views on dating older doggies?
love and kisses

Happy Burpday Mango (did you burp a lot after ingesting that entire can of cheese?)!!!!

You were so adorable, and now, you are hooooge and handsomelicious!! Your cake looked most nommy too, I wouldn't mind trying it!

Thank you for the "get your hearing back" wishes...... I'm doing fine, but I hope my hearing does come back for mum's sake. She's not doing as well as me. Your point regarding no STINKY noise is an excellent point, mind you, he's not nearly as "talkative" as me.

Love nibbles,

We need to talk to Grammy about finding some of that cheese in a can stuff too, cause that really looked like you were enjoying it... Fun and Yummies at the same time sounds great! BG

Oh Mango! My mum was sooooooo busy lately that she wouldn't help me to write a brithday message on your barkday, later she said and now we are late :( the latest by the looks of it :(
Anyway - it looks like you had a pawesome day and that cake looks fantastic. Happy belated 5th Barkday big guy!!!
