Last weekend our dad celebrated his birthday and mom decided to 'surprise' him with some pretty helium ballons. It did surprise him alright.. when she presented them to him just before they went to the dinner that mon arranged, he was stunned.. and shocked. He refused to hold onto the ballons(citing 'embarassment' as a reason) and poor mom had to hold onto them. I guess dad finds it a rather 'unmanly' thing to do.. LOL!!

When they got home late that night, they discovered that there is finally one thing that daredevil Hershey is afraid of - the helium balloons!!! She steered far away from the balloons and watched them warily from her 'safety spot' under the dining table. It took some cajoling from mom to make Hershey pose next to those balloons and although Hershey was a reluctant model, her favourite chicken jerky treats eventually did the magic.

The little bipeds here play with balloons all the time, so we aren't too fazed by them. But we would also do just about anything for duck or chicken jerky.

Nice pics, Hershey - hope you enjoyed the reward.

Happy Birthday to Dad from all of us!

I'm not fond of balloons either! They don't bother Mitch at all - he leaps at them and pops them!
Happy birthday to your dad, Huskee and Hershey!

Happy Belated Birthday to your dad! We think the chicken jerky treats worked like a charm - Hershey doesn't look scared in those pics at all.

Hmmm, perhaps your mom could have enticed your dad to carry the balloons with a few -- well, maybe not chicken jerky treats but something he likes?

Happy belated b-day to your Dad....we got a chuckle out of Dad not wanting to claim the balloons. Men are funny like that.

Hershey I don't blame you for being cautious arount the helium balloons. The ones mom brings home seem to have a life of their own actually moving around the room
Hugs madi

Nice Balloons! And Happy Barkday to your dad. Sounds like he had a great time even if he didn't carry his own balloons.
