Dog Training

The only thing we can train our basset hounds to do is to run outside when they somehow secure some unauthorized food.

"Please let me out! You'll never know I had it!" Those eyes just beg for more food.

And to whet all your tastebuds. Something Tank didn't get hold of, Middle Child's birthday cake. I frosted it with the NieNie Mudcake recipe as found here at the bottom of the page. Needless to say, it was delicious.

He turned 12! I'm not quite sure where the time has gone but he sure has grown up lately. He can sleep in like a teenager. He can pull attitude like a teenager. He can shirk chores and homework like a teenager. But, thank goodness, he's still sweet like a little boy and loves to give hugs. He's got more love to spread than the rest of us combined. He makes up for our lack.

Happy 12th Birthday Middle Child!!!

Tank's eyes are so pleading. The eyes say it all.
The cake was so, so good. Loved it. Loved being with the family and getting lots of hugs. Plus, I love the feel of newly cut hair.

That cake looks SOOOOO good! I made one for Sydney today, but not nearly as yummy I'm afraid!
