As I mentioned yesterday, Phoebe’s party was a success. We didn’t do anything too fancy because I get it, she’s a dog, she really doesn’t know the difference one way or the other. Plus, we couldn’t do anything we couldn’t top when we have our first child. I can just imagine the therapy bills if our dog’s first birthday party was cooler than our child’s. For me, it was just an excuse to get family together, dress my dog in something cute and eat cake. Seriously, who’s going to pass up an excuse to eat cake?
Anyway, I made her a little party hat.
She looks pretty darn cute, huh?
We also ordered a dog cake from Happy Dog Barkery. They make super cute cakes for dogs and cats.
She didn’t want to look at the camera because she was very interested in the yummy cake in front of her.
Here’s the video of us singing to her and her enjoying her cake.
The cake was peanut butter flavored. Phoebe thought it was delicious, so did my parents’ Labrador Madison. Joel and I…. not so much. It wasn’t awful but I certainly wouldn’t eat more than a little bite. Guess that’s why it was the dog cake not the people cake.
Jordan didn’t quite understand the concept of there being two separate cakes and when Phoebe got to this point,
Jordan got really upset
Once we cut the people cake and gave him a piece he perked right back up.
It was a lot of fun for a dog’s birthday party. By the end Phoebe was worn out.
Tummy full of cake = happy, sleepy puppy
I can’t believe she’s a year old already. She grown into a really wonderful, sweet dog and I can’t imagine not having her around. Maybe it’s time to give her a puppy sibling…
