Not even their 'Gotcha Days'.
considering we are the type of people who do things like this.
At first it was more about making time stand still.
Time is so short with dogs, and I really feared our pooches aging. Especially since we adopted Mr. B when he was already 5 years old. I felt like if we didn't acknowledge our dogs' birthdays, they really wouldn't age.
For a long time, when people would ask, we would say our dogs were 4 and 5 years old.
And we really believed it.
Until we did the math and figured out we were still living circa 2008.
Our friend Silly Buddy generously donates a percentage in sales for Buddy's birthday month. And we've seen a lot of great dog-snack ideas. Just like elementary school, some of our Chicago SociaBulls members have even brought treats for the group. Most recently was pretty Derby's birthday and her mom cooked homemade treats for all of the dogs in the group.
Of course, Miss M pushed her way to be the first in line and she ate her treat in a single gulp.
