Goro's 8th Birthday

My boss went to Japan for a business trip
and brought this snack for me.

At home, it got full attention from Goro.

They are not real shrimps, Goro.

No, no. You won't!
But Mommy is gonna have some :-)

Yum yum.


I felt bad for not sharing.
But there is a solution for that!

Happy snacking :-)

On May 30, Goro turns 8.
He is a furry & funny sunshine who
brightens up our home ever day

We love you, Goro. Happy birthday!!

  24. Feliz aniversário,Goro!!
    Cafunés para você,menino bonito!

  25. Happy Birthday, Goro! We can only imagine the tasty treats your mom is going to cook up for you. We know she is quite the chef! We hope you enjoy your big day - it is tomorrow, wow!
    Also, we saw your comment on our post asking about the stroller. I ordered it from Amazon. It is a Vivo brand stroller. It seems to be pretty good, though I think I'll wait to use it for a while longer before I give my final opinion. I like that there is room in it for 3 kitties, and there is also a little shelf below the kitty space to hold other things, like treats, camera, purse, etc. It also has cup holders. It is definitely not made to be pushed very fast though, because the wheels started going crazy when I tried to run with it for a second. Overall, so far so good, so far!

  26. Happy 8th Birthday Goro! You are a wonderful fellow and we always smile when we visit. It is great to watch all the fun you and brofur Niko have.
    We made you a card.

  39. Dearest Tamago,
    Oh, what a lovely gift from your birth country; it makes one happy!
    Don't we all feel guilty for eating in front of our babies?! At times it is not good to share though... But you solved it in a very good way. Congrats on Goro's 8th Birthday! Sorry for being late... got a bit down after receiving my report from the nephrologist about both my kidneys having gone from 40% function in November, to 34% on May 19 when I had the lab work done. That hit me really hard... Well, I picked myself up again and will try to do my utmost for not eating any sodium rich food and drinking even more water!
    Sending you hugs,

  40. Happy belated birthday, Goro. Now dad says to send him some of that shrimp! Happy weekend to y'all.

  41. Happy belated Birthday Goro! You may be 8 years old but you still have the looks of a teenager!

  42. Goro want a share . Happy Birthday Goro
