"It's a dog party! A big dog party!" I always liked reading Dr. Seuss', Go Dog Go to my boys. Hermes isn't a big dog, and he didn't have a party, but I did make him his first ever birthday cake. I asked my son to help me get some pictures because with Hermes' reputation around food we knew we had only one chance at documenting it.
In true form, just like any two year old, Hermes didn't react like we thought he would. Was he nervous because we were all watching? Well, picture this . . . My son is leaning against the counter discussing the day's events with me while he is eating a slice of pizza. In an instant that pizza is snatched from his hand by a flash of white who is now behind the couch trying to swallow the thing whole. No, I don't think he care's who is watching.
Was it because it was unfamiliar? No, I don't think that's it either. One of the first things Hermes burgled when he was a puppy was a corn dog, and he tried to gulp it down, resembling an amazon python stick and all! So, I don't think that was it either. Maybe he was just trying to mind his manners. Ok, we'll go with that . . . for now . . . as a gift . . . because it's his birthday . . . (right, sure, ok) Ha!
Turns out, it was nothing unusual at all. . . My son had put a treat behind the candle and after looking at the images that popped up on my computer screen, it was obvious. . . it was all about the treat. Keep your eye on the prize, Hermes. :O)
