On Tuesday, October 14, Mika celebrated her 4th birthday! The celebrations started after I came home from school. We put on birthday hats for the photos, though Mika didn't enjoy that too much, so I took hers off right after the photos.
Mika then received a delicious-looking birthday "cake" (it was actually half a can of Innova wet dog food) with four candles on top. The cake was also on an exquisite plate! I put the cake on a small table and blew out the candles for her. and then Mika dug in, putting her front paws on the table while she scarfed down the food. Man, she really LOVED that cake!! Of course, her beard did get all gross so we had to wash it in the bathtub afterward, but I'm sure Mika thought it was worth it!
After the plate was licked completely clean, Mika got her present -- a new collar. Her old pink collar had faded and dirtied, so it really was time to get a new one. Her new collar is nylon and rainbow-striped! I do think Mika liked the cake better :) but the collar looks great on her!
I had a looot of schoolwork to do that afternoon and also the next couple of days, so sadly I couldn't spend much time with Mika on her birthday, but I'll definitely spend the rest of the day with her today after I get home from school, and tomorrow as well.
Happy B-Day Mika!
Also, we have a trial tomorrow! Woot!
