If you are reading this and are celebrating 4th of July, here’s wishing you a Happy Independence Day. While this is not a holiday that we celebrate but the day is special to us. For on this day, our little fur-kid was born.
Almost 2 months later, we went to view this special litter of puppies. The Man laid his eyes on this one and immediately knew this little fella was ours. Unfortunately, this little fella was pre-sold to someone else. We went home a little crushed but received a call from the breeder. He was willing to sell this little fella to us if we agreed to some of his conditions. We said yes as they didn’t seem unreasonable. Some two weeks later, we brought this little fella home and he’s now affectionately known as Sparky to us.
Like a kid, he used to be so small. I would cuddle and hold him. He could sit on my lap and not crush me with his weight. Fast forward three years on? He’s all of 30 odd kilos, he drags me when we go on walks and he sometimes steps on my toes if I get in his path. But who cares? He will always remain as our special little one in our eyes.
We missed his second birthday last year for we were in Geneva. So this year, we decided to make it up to him by getting him his very own barkday cake for doggies.
I searched and came upon The Barkery Singapore. Pics looked good but more importantly, the ingredients looked super good and healthy for doggies. So I went ahead to order the Standard Round Birthday Cake for Sparky. Ordering was relatively quick and pain-free but I had to change the date of picking up the cake for the Man wanted to hold the barkday celebration earlier. I sent emails and the changes were made but when the Man went to pick the cake up, it appeared that there was some miscommunication for the cake wasn’t ready at all.
Thankfully, the baker was super-duper nice and accommodating. She probably knew how much this little cake would mean to the fur-kid, so she rushed back to the store and whipped up a cake for our little one. She even made a special delivery to our place to bring the cake. This is truly going the extra mile for the customers!
And guess who couldn’t keep his nose off the cake the moment we took it out from the box? Why, this not-so-little fella of course!
He got superbly excited and couldn’t wait to sink his teeth into his super-sized annual treat!
We had plans to cut the cake into two and let him have it over the course of two meals. But seeing how much he was salivating over this cake, we decided to spoil him a little on his special day and let him devour the entire cake.
The look of a happy and satisfied barkday boy? Truly priceless!
Happy birthday our little precious one!
