Hershey's 1st Barkday --- Part 2

The very first present that Hershey received for her birthday this year is from our dear friends, The 4 Musketeers and their sissy! We received it 1 week before Hershey's barkday and mom kept it until the actual day for Hershey to open. The 4 Musketeers sent not one, but TWO pressies for Hershey and BOTH are beautiful...

Pressie #1
Pawtrait of Hershey... our Mom LOVES it so much and we will be framing it up

Pressie #2
A very pretty red leather collar from Coach!
Hershey insisted on putting it on the moment she saw it...

Pressie #3
From our long time friends, Jack and Joey!! (there are 2 toys inside)
Thank you very much J&J (and Aunty G)!

Pressie #4

A surprise package all the way from Malaysia from
It's a lovely handmade card and a bag of treats...
Thanks a million Happy.. you made Hershey very H.A.P.P.Y indeed!!

Additionally, Hershey also received 2 barkday cards...

From Mona

and Ludo!!

Message from Hershey: A great big gigantic THANKS to each and everypup for your beautiful pressies, cards and barkday wishes! You have all played a integral part in making my very 1st barkday so memorable and enjoyable. **sending puppy kisses to everyone**


Some of you asked for the receipe for the meatloaf that mom made for Hershey's barkday... so here it is! Actually the end result turned out better than mom expected (she's not a fantastic cook.. heehee..) and the most impartant thing is that Hershey and I are still alive and well after finishing both of them.. LOL!!

Some of the ingredients that we used.... Actually you can use basically anything you want (or have in the fridge). The ingredients that we used are:

  1. 500g of minced beef
  2. 500g of minced pork
  3. Canned Tuna
  4. Vegetables - we used potatoes, asparagus and carrots (**note: potatoes need to be cooked before you place it in the meat loaf)
  5. Lasagne pasta sheets
  6. Heinz baby puree - we used pumpkin and asparagus but you can use any flavour you want
  7. Rice
  8. Cheese


  1. Mix Heinz baby puree with minced beef and pork
  2. After this, there are no actual 'steps' to be honest... mom basically just layered all the ingredients on.. we started with a layer of the minced meat and topped it off with another layer of meat. All the other ingredients just goes in between.
  3. We baked it for around 20min at 150 (5 min before completion, we topped it off with another layer of cheese).

Some of the ingredients

This is layer #3.. Layer #1 is the minced meat, layer #2 is the pasta sheet and layer #3 is the potato

This is layer #6 (or so...).. carrots!!

Nearing completion... final layer of meat goes on top

Done!! Into the oven next...

Almost there...

Tah-Dahhhhh.... Completed!!!

Don't forget to ask your mom to try it out cos we are sure you'll love it!!

Hi Huskee and Hershey,

Mommy just loves the portrait of you Hershey. You are such a pretty girl and it looks like you had a great birthday.

Mommy wanted to let you know that we did our Spring Flower post last night and used very lovely picture. Mommy missed a few doggies so we are going to do an update post so if Mommy takes a picture of Huskee that would be wonderful. Thanks so much for being a part of my post. Come over when you cam and check it out.

Hi, Hershey -

Oh noooooooooooo! It was your birthday and we missed it?!? It looks like you had a great 1st birthday!

We agree with someone who wrote that your Mom is beautiful.

All of the pictures were great - we had a hard time choosing a favorite. But that portrait is really gorgeous.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

That's one amazing birthday!
Food looks so good!
Oh yea happy birthday!

Amber-Mae said...

Wow! What a recipe! We must ask Mommy to make one spectacular one like Hershey's next time. Ooo, my Mommy got worried for second there when she saw your Mom put the aluminum plates into the microwave oven. Did it spark? Because no metals can be put in a microwave oven. It can catch on fire! And it can also spoil the microwave. Unless that is not a microwave.
