It's My Birthday!!! (Ellwood's 1st birthday)

Today is my 1st birthday!!
Happy Birthday to meeee!
I am soo excited!! Look at what I got:

A new big ball (partially deflated so that I may better get the bitey on it)...
just call me Ellwood Beckham!

I brought the ball to Mom and put it between her feet then she locked me into what she calls a monkey trap...I could NOT get that ball back and there was NO WAY I was going to let it go...so I was there like this for a LONG time!!

And a new blanket!

I love it - I love to roll around on it and snuggle on it!!
Woo hoo!!

Apparently there is one more present, but since Dad is away right now, Mom said that we have to wait for him to return before I get it. Mom said that she is sure I will like it and that it is very special....I just don't know what it could be!!! Any ideas???? I don't know if I can wait another week for it.
I am not known for being patient!!

I don't have cake, but Mom has also been giving me lots of treats!

P.S. Remember that cool new rope toy I got as part of Paw it Forward? Well, I won't be playing with it for a while...Mom accidentally threw it way up in the air and it got stuck in a tree...we're waiting for a strong wind to knock it out of the branches. Grrrr...I am NOT pleased.

Love the "monkey trap!" Great name for it.

And we have no idea what your special present is...not a woofie sibling??
