Ben and Mouse have a birthday

Today Ben and Mouse celebrated their 5th birthday and we were invited.

We see Ben and Mouse at greyhound walks and we are lucky that we have developed friendships with their humans and other humans/greyhounds who were at the party.

In total, 7 hounds attended the party – with no incidents including feeding them their own doggy birthday cake.

Here are some photos of the day:

Daisy’s 14th birthday cake

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)

Happy birthday, Your Holiness

I like Pope Francis’ style.  Earlier this week, he invited four homeless men to join him for Mass and breakfast at the Vatican in celebration of his 77th birthday (that’s roughly 13 in dog years).

One of the men owned a dog, who was welcomed as part of the celebrations:

If the Vatican can embrace dog-friendly accommodation, why can’t we see more dog-friendly establishments elsewhere?

Daisy’s birthday weekend

This is it.  Daisy’s 13th birthday weekend.   The day started out the sad news that one of Daisy’s extended family, Icy, passed away yesterday at the age of 15 1/2.  It makes me realise that Daisy is definitely a senior dog and every day past 13 is a blessing.

We started this afternoon off with a visit to dog park on what is a warmer than usual winter’s day.  Daisy is proudly wearing her Birthday Dog scarf and is ready for action.

Tonight she had doggy meatloaf (a combination of kibble, beef, carrots, brown rice, beef broth and lots of love) for her dinner.

How do you celebrate your dog’s birthday?
