Yes, today is Mandy's birthday (sometimes knows as "Moose"). She's aging nicely, I think. As of today, she is 9 years old.
She spent much of the day relaxing. Here we see her on her couch (also known as Bernice's couch)...
While Mandy relaxed, Marc baked a cake...
...and prepared icing...
Marc and the frosted cake
If you're wondering what kind of cake the kids like, well, just about any, but this is a doggy birthday party favorite. It's a peanut butter cake!
Cutting the cake
It wasn't a surprise party, so the kids knew to gather as the cake was being cut...
Dodger waits to help celebrate Mandy's birthday.
Bernice also waits to celebrate.
The birthday girl enters the kitchen.
Mandy gives the cake a sniff.
Looks like it's going to get her approval!
Note her dainty eating. She's always a lady!
Dodger grudgingly agrees to sample a piece.
As you can see, Mandy learned her fine eating habits from Bernice.
Apparently, the cake was acceptable, since Mandy went back for more, and she's a very picky eater!
