Celebrate Your Pet
Is it your pet's birthday? Maybe its their “Got ya day” (day you became their pet parent). Maybe you just picked out a random date that you designated to celebrate your favorite cuddly buddy. Whether your pet has a special day or not, take some time to think about ways to celebrate it. Mark the day with something different a new toy or a fun event. You will not regret it.
So today was our dog Jack Oliver’s 12th birthday. We adopted him from our local shelter when he was 7. I always write their birthdays or “Got Ya days” on my Calendar, but I never quite knew what to do to actually celebrate them. Because of the Holiday Chicks project, and my friend Barbara, who loves to celebrate everything, especially her dogs' special days. I jumped on the bandwagon. It was so much fun. The dogs had a great time and so did my husband and I.
It was an all out pizza party with doggie ice cream for dessert. Costumes included. Jack was decked out for a Fiesta, and looked adorable in his sombrero. My Pooh Bear, that’s my husband, made the pizza to a dazzled audience. We grabbed a movie and chowed down with the pooches in attendance. Didn’t want the birthday boy or his sibs to get a stomach ache because of their sensitive stomachs, so the pups got the crusts. They didn't mind one bit as they happily gobbled them up.
After noshing on pizza the Dogster ice creams came out. They loved it! Especially our little Jackie. He got his Jack Russell jaws around that cheese flavored ice cream and chomped. Miss Phebes took delicate bites (she is a lady) and Dusty just licked and licked. Fun was had by all. It really was such a memorable night. We have started a new tradition in our household. When its your special day around here you get pizza and ice cream and you have to wear the special Fiesta hat. Ole!!!
