If you read my last post you know my people forgot my birthday this year. My mom person says she accidentally wrote it in on July 28th, instead of June 28th. I don’t see her forgetting either of my boy’s birthdays!
I had hoped that as a couple of you suggested, there was a surprise party planned. I woke up eagerly and hoped to see all of my friends, but alas, no party.
I decided to use the guilt method of people reinforcement with my people. This can be very a very effective way to train forgetful people. You just have to stay consistent.
First my guilting brought about a meager offering. A lowly piece of bologna. Hmm.
My next attempt was met with a little more success, some popcorn shrimp.
Tasty, but I could have used a little cocktail sauce. Then I got to help my boy John plant another tree. Since I was working so hard supervising, John picked me up & let me just observe.
Playing had not been done, so I brought my trust octopus, and let them know what should come next. I even stood it up nicely all by myself.
Then today when my dad broke down some chicken breasts, he made me a plate of chicken bits. Delightful.
I got to go to the pet supply store today, but was not allowed to pick out a belated squeaky toy! Some nonsense about me always tearing the stuffin’s out of my stuffies. Is it my fault is my toys need surgery!!!
I guess I’m pretty spoiled every day, so birthday’s aren’t that important, but next year I am hoping for a little more effort from my people!
