I have the best dog in the world, but today he decided to be very, very naughty.
This morning my BFF amiga and fellow shiksa Sandra came over to wish me a happy birthday. She brought this beautiful cake and decorated the kitchen table just for me. The whole thing was so cute that I had to take a picture:
And boy, am I glad I did. Sandra and I made some tea, then went into the living room to chat. When I walked back into the kitchen, this is what I found:
Apparently somebody was hungry!! Yes, folks, it’s true. Marley ate my birthday cake.
We got our dog Marley a couple of years ago after reading the book “Marley and Me.” My stepdaughter insisted that we get a labrador and name him Marley. After a lot of searching we found our perfect baby labrador and brought him home. He’s been part of the family ever since.
Perhaps naming Marley after a notoriously naughty dog was mistake number one. But honestly, our Marley is generally very well behaved. This is the first time he’s ever done anything like this. And I think he feels really guilty judging by the look on his face. What do you think?
He’s lucky I love him so much. I had to forgive him. After all, he gave me one of the most awesome birthday memories ever!
New recipe posting on Wednesday. Have a great week everybody!
