About My Birthday - by Hailey

Thank you all for your birthday wishes. It made me feel extra special (I always feel a little special, cause that is how I roll!)

I actually got my birthday gift a few days before my birthday. I got the Slo-Bowl flower because I tend to eat too fast. Lady was gonna make me wait til my birthday but one night I ate so fast I vomited and then ate my vomit, which grossed my Lady out and she gave me it early. I have been testing it out, and it does make me eat slower. I find it slightly annoying, but am adjusting to the change.

The new bowl


My Aunt C, Uncle D and cousin cats Panda and Lupul sent me this in an email:
"For your birthday a Thundershirt has been donated to one of the dogs at the Catahoula rescue so that a dog like you can get a hug when it needs it while it waits for it's forever home!!!"

Catahoula is the rescue that saved me (and Phod too), so I am happy to be helping other dogs who don't have forever homes.

On my birthday my Lady took me for a special walk through the woods behind our house. We didn't go very far because even though we are having a January thaw, Lady still sinks up to above her knees when she was walking . . . which made it hard for her. I was light enough to not to sink as much as Lady and Phod. I managed to pull Lady over 4 times in the snow. Fortunately when the snow was up past her knees she didn't have far to fall so she didn't get hurt and she laughed a lot. What was neat about our walk is that in our side yard we can see where the deer have been sleeping. We got to have a really good sniff of the deer dents in the snow. It was fun. Phody and I both enjoyed the deer poop as a treat. [Note from Lady - Phod never eats poop etc, so it was shocking that he wanted deer poop!]

Even though we didn't go far, having to pull Lady through the snow was hard work and I had a great nap after. I also got lots of extra treats. Overall, turning 4 was great. The only downfall to it, is Lady keeps saying I am all grown up now and I need to be good . . . . I just give her a look! I am gonna be who I am gonna be!

Thanks again for all your birthday wishes!

Hailey

  4. I've got such a bowl too (imagine, a red torture tool with hearts!) and first I totally disliked it, but it really helps me to eat more slowly and not to swallow too much air while eating. But with deer-poop inside I would like even the torture-bowl.

  6. Hailey, I am SO GLAD you had a pawesome birthday! But what is with that bowl? I guess it makes you slow down because all the food gets stuck in between all those swirly things, eh? I hope you adjust to it and that it helps you.
    *high paws* for turning 4!

  15. is the bowl made out of plastic? If it is, then I wouldn't want it because it causes problems with cats and dogs, but if it is made out of ceramic or glass or something that is a great bowl. Dakota could use a bowl to slow down his eating

  16. That's some deep snow!!! Pulled her over four times....that's a record, isn't it? We're not sure about that bowl. If you eat quickly, you can sometimes sneak someone else's food.

    Bet those deer smells and poo were absolute heaven.

  17. Love that bowl! We had to get "slow down you're eating too fast" bowls too because both Boomer and Dottie would vomit if they ate too fast. But, yours is way cuter than ours!

  18. Sounds like fun! Your bowl looks pretty cool too. Nice that you got it early after the throw up thing. I guess it would be wasteful to just throw all that dinner you slurped down away. Maybe you should tell the lady you are just being resourceful! LOL

  19. I used to have a bowl like that, really worked:-)
    Love the sound of your snowy walk too, what a fab time you had!

  20. It sounds like you had a wonderful birfday! And that walk among the deer poops would be heavenly!

    Your Pals,

  23. Sounds like a perfect way to spend your birthday. Walter could use one of those bowls.

  24. oOoo I received a similar bowl in green and rectangular shape. Currently using it for my meals. Does it work to slow your feed?

  25. Sounds like a brilliant birthday and I love the idea of donating a gift to a rescue to celebrate you! The walk sounds like the most fun, and you keep being you - you rock!

  26. Sounds like you had a great birthday! The Slo-bowl must help you a lot to eat slowly and not throw up.
    The walk in the snow must have been fun. And good work-out to pull Lady through the snow :-)
    Have a happy weekend xoxo

  27. A very happy belated birthday Hailey! I'm glad that you had such a great day! Love your new bowl, I have a slow eating bowl too, since I tend to "wolf" my food down, BOL! Yours is very pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a great birthday. The walk sounds like tons of fun, with not too far to fall! I've read that carnivores (like you) eat deer poop so that they can ingest the right enzymes for digesting plant material (like grass and stuff).

  29. Sounds like you had a fun birthday. Your aunt and uncle were very kind to donate a Thundershirt to your rescue.

    I bet Beamer would love deer poop, too!
