Yesterday, Daisy reached the geriatric age of 14 – an achievement for any larger sized dog. We of course celebrated with a doggy birthday cake, which was a wheat-free apple and banana cake with a low fat cream cheese frosting.
I decorated the cake with a vintage Disney carousel ornament – the heat from the candles makes the carousel turn.
(Excuse the singing – it was the best I could do with a cold and sore throat)

Sunday is Mother’s Day. The Best Friends Animal Society have put out this lovely video to celebrate all mothers – four-legged ones too!
Daisy is a mother; I’m Daisy’s Mum. We have yet to decide how we will mark the occasion but we will pause (paws) to celebrate.
Happy Mother’s Day!
It’s Mother’s Day and we shouldn’t forget that many of our dogs have been mums too (whether planned or unplanned).
In my case, Daisy has been a mum – it happened before I adopted her. Although I don’t know any of her puppies, I think it is fitting that we celebrate her motherhood status, particularly as she is a senior dog of almost 13.
Happy Mother’s Day Daisy! Your Mum loves you!!!
I’m a caterer – but of the doggy kind. I took an order a few weeks ago from the Herne Bay Local Eatery and Bar for a special Dog and Grog event (these events are held the last Sunday of every month when patrons and their dogs are all welcome to attend).
The special event was Dexter’s first birthday.
Anna is the manager of the restaurant and also Dexter’s mother. From the photos she’s sent in, all had a wonderful time. Thanks for your support of Canine Catering, Anna!
Does your dog celebrate St Patrick’s Day (a.k.a. St Pawtrick’s Day)?
Most dogs don’t really enjoy being dressed in costume. However, there are breeds that have Irish roots. Let’s honor these breeds on St Patrick’s Day and simply include our dogs in the celebrations rather than dressing them up!
Grab a Guinness and let’s toast:
Happy Valentine’s Day! Have you hugged your dog today? If not, now would be a good time.
And good luck to all animals up for adoption this weekend at My Furry Valentine 2013, an adoption event across Greater Cincinnati.
Tonight’s the night in Birmingham, Alabama for a holiday ballet with a new twist. 21 dogs will be performing alongside ballerinas in the Birmingham Ballet’s Mutt-cracker.
Proceeds from the performance go to the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.
Dogs had to audition for roles in the ballet with a dog trainer observing. A few of the dogs are rescues.
Here’s a few photos of preparations for the big night, courtesy of Tamika Moore, photographer for Al.com:
