Happy Birthday Mamma Biscuit!

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Mamma Biscuit
Happy Birthday to you!


Exactly three years ago on this very day, Tommy and I ventured down to the East Village to pick up our little pug waiting for us at Curly Tail Pug Rescue. Back then, she was marked as eight years old without a confirmed Birthday—and no one had any idea when she could have been born. How sad is that? Can you imagine a life without knowing when you were born, or worse, without any acknowledgment, love or care for it? Now I know Mamma is an animal and she wouldn’t know the difference between a Birthday or any old regular day but she sure knows the difference between life at a puppy mill and life here with us. Also, as you can see through this blog, we treat Mamma Biscuit as if every day were her Birthday! The fact that she’s still kicking around after eight years of indoor crate life and being forced to have litter after litter of puppies proves that animals are really resilient and they can thrive wonderfully with a whole lot of love and care—and quite frankly, no other dog deserves it more than she does.

So we did what any logical dog owner would do three years ago, we made Mamma Biscuit’s arrival date home at the Pug Palace her official Birthday—and today is the big day! So get out a pen and mark this damn day down on your calendar and then go outside and spend some quality time with your pets, children, friends or spouse! Today is not only a day we celebrate Mamma Biscuit but a day to remember and appreciate the important people or animals in our lives and to never take them for granted! Mamma’s freedom and finding a loving home was really her rebirth into the happy life she was meant to have!

I’m sure by now, you all know that our little gremlin beast is the daintiest of dogs and she loves being pampered like the New York City pooch that she is. No other activity gets Mamma Biscuit more excited than a visit to the local doggy grooming spa for a little Birthday beautification. So here is our glowing Biscuit Lady after a visit to Alberto’s Pet Shop and Grooming in our neighborhood where she got a much needed bath, some claw clipping and her anal glands were expressed. I know, I know, too much information but you have to understand, when she gets this total European spa treatment, she comes home smelling like the inside of a brand new car—and her disposition is just as shiny and brand new!

From Albertos, we took Mamma on a walk through the park for some much needed fresh air and exercise. We made our usual stop at our spot in Fort Tryon Park for a Birthday photoshoot before heading home for some Birthday treats. We decked Mamma Biscuit out in a new Laura Ashley inspired summer frock and a set of giant pearls that would make Laura Bush green with envy! Our Little Gremlin is giving her best day in the garden at the White House with the First Lady in these photographs. Now Laura Bush may no longer be our First Lady (thank goodness) but I’d like to think that Michelle Obama would approve of this look too—after all, Mamma is showing off her shoulders and sleeves—if you can call it that!

After entertaining the local children (and ourselves) with Mamma’s Birthday photoshoot in the park, we headed back to the Pug Palace for some Sweet Semosh baked treats! Tommy made Mamma her favorite vegan peanut butter carrot muffins with the letters M and B spelled out in pale yellow icing on top! Mamma was so uncontrollable, running back and forth on our sofa as we were bringing out all of the baked goods for her party. The aroma wafting through our living room must have sent her nose and her little brain into over drive but like the well-mannered little girl that she is, she waited patiently to be fed despite her excitement!

Another interesting fact about Mamma Biscuit is that although she may be seventy-seven years old in dog years, she’s practically reverted back to being a puppy! As of lately, she’s been chasing her tail around as if she were a two year old dog—and every day, she seems to gain more and more of a youthful, energetic spirit. It’s like living with the curious case of Mamma Biscuit at our household as she reverts back to being young again rather than growing old. Now although I love the idea of Mamma being a cougar (which she is from time to time) she can also run with the young crowd and blend seamlessly without any problems! Simply put, our bitch is forever timeless!

Happy Birthday Mamma Biscuit! Today we celebrate you and your life and the joy and happiness you bring to our lives!

    Really sweet post about giving lots of love to our pets (aka children), family, and friends! Mamma looks beautiful after her trip to the beauty parlor and all decked out in that flirty frock and serious pearls — and she clearly knows she looks good. (I did think that the 1st Mrs. Bush/first lady, Barbara, was the one who was more large pearl choker-crazy than Laura Bush was. I agree with you though on the “thank goodness”.)

    The miniature pug scaling the tree root table to get near the birthday goodies totally cracked me up! Beautiful looking food there; Mamma showed a lot of restraint.

      LOLOL Barbara Bush was totes more of a fan of teh giant pearls than Luara, so thanks for pointing that out LOL
      Mamma loves getting dressed up in her little doggy frocks and it was double the pleasure because she had just gotten a total pampering treatment at the doggy spa!
      We put out quite the sweet spread for the Biscuit Lady, and that includes all of the decor, I’m just so thankful that Mamma was so patient and waited for her cake! Like Courtney Love, Mamma is totally the girl with the most cake!

        LOL yourselves — I certainly hope Mamma Biscuit won’t be taking any styling tips from Courtney Love (a hilarious thought really). Staid as those poor ladies are, better to emulate the Bush wives.

        • The Biscuits says:

          LOL I like to think that Mamma is versatile, she can go from a punk Courtney Love to a staid and upper crust Laura Bush, and any style in between but I must agree, I do share your cautious concerns! xo

  4. Happy Birthday Mamma!! Wishing you an amazing year ahead! Lots of love and kisses, Serena and Soda xxxxx

    Oh Mamma! We spelled your name wrong earlier! Please accept our apologies. We are usually such sticklers about that! We are so happy to see what an amazing family you have now and how loved you are. Here’s to many more birthdays!

    • The Biscuits says:

      No problems Cheryl LOL Everyone always spells Mamma’s name wrong, it’s that extra M that people forget to put in when typing out her name! Thanks so much for the lovely Birthday wishes! Our Biscuit Lady is sending you pug hugs and kisses!
      The Biscuits!

    Happy birthday (and Gotcha Day) Mamma Biscuit! You don’t look a day older than 3! Your dads are so amazing for celebrating your day with style and baked goods! And I bet you’re acting younger and younger because each day you’re happier and happier!

    • The Biscuits says:

      Aww, thanks for the Birthday wishes! Mamma is sending you pug hugs and kisses! I can’t even begin to tell you how adorable your drawings are of pugs! I love that pugs passing in the night drawing, but really, they are all so damn cute!!!
      Pug life for ever!

    Oh, Mamma, happy birthday girlfriend!

    I love this happy story. You’re so right… No one deserves a loving home more than she does. I wish everyone would follow your lead and adopt a pup who needs a home. Oh, and Michelle would TOTALLY approve of Mamma’s fab birthday style ;-)

    • The Biscuits says:

      AWWW, thanks for stopping by and leaving this lovely birthday wish for Mamma Biscuit! I agree, Michelle Obama would not only approve of Mamma’s birthday style, she would force her husband to propose a new bill in congress that would instate mandetory taxes to pay for the upkeap of Mamma’s wardrobe moving forward LOL could you imagine? Congratulations on your adoption of Norman! He’s such a handsome frenchie!
