On August 16th our little Runway celebrated his second birthday. As he does every day, our little man went to the office, and as they do for every employee at the pilot’s work, they had a little celebration for his big day. Aunt Jenny and Aunt Jessica, who work at the pilot’s work, made him a Happy Birthday hat that he proudly wore for at least 2 minutes. It helps that he got a toy from Grandma for encouragement. The toy is a kong, and while they say indestructible, they usually last him a week.
Two minutes were about all we got before he could not keep himself away from his cake. Once he noticed it, his attention was lost to eating it!
After the presents Runway got to have a little puppycake with his “shop family.” The puppy version of a cake is specifically made for dogs and is safe to eat. We weren’t sure if he would like it, but he had no trouble devouring it.
Runway would NOT have been happy to share his puppy treats, but we thought he (and all of his shop family) would be happier if he got his own and we had a few people cakes, with strawberry frosting, Runway’s favorite, of course for everyone else.
Our little man got a special treat: his own chair at the table to “blow out” his candle. The whole gang gathered around and even sang him happy birthday while he patiently waited to dig in.
As the song progressed he o0ched closer and closer and about the point when they were singing his name he just could not wait any longer. It is a good thing the pilot was paying attention because he dug in before the candle was blown out.
Our little man got to sit at the table with everyone else and eat all three of his little cakes. He even got to eat a little but of the strawberry icing he loves so much.
Our little man had a wonderful “big day.” Since he is our “child” we spoil him a little. We had one person mention one time that they wouldn’t mind coming back as one of our dogs one day.
