Molly Turns 7! (Warning: Picture Heavy b/c We're Crazy)

If you were ever wondering what types of people are crazy enough to 1) know their dog's birthday and 2) celebrate it, well...hi.  Actually Molly is the only dog that we've ever done anything special for birthday wise.  My two late dogs Wicket and Natasha were both born on the street and came to me later in life when they were older puppies, so we weren't sure of their exact age.  With Molly being a purebred and having registration papers, we know the exact day/year she was born, so we celebrate it and it's honestly kind of fun!  It's our silly thing we do.  Molly turned 7 today, which apparently is 47 in people years.

She started the day out on a healthy note by sharing some of my strawberry banana smoothie with me, then we went on a 1.5 mile walk.  Even birthday girls need to keep fit!


Then we gave her this obscenely long toy that has nine freaking squeakers in it!  Of course she loves it because it's obnoxious.


"Mooooom!  Gimmie!"
Note the "you will NEVER take this from me" paw slung over it
This year we made Molly some birthday meatballs from this mix my sister-in-law gave Molly for Christmas.  We've been saving it just for her birthday, and I made a tiered meatball "cake" for today and then a bunch of little meatballs that she can have throughout the week.


We all put on hats to take a family selfie, but we didn't sing Happy Birthday because you know...that makes us slightly less crazy.




Between the new toy, photo opportunities and not believing her good fortune at getting people quality meatballs all to herself, the birthday girl felt she needed to recover from the excitement with a little power nap.  But she's keeping her present close by just to make sure we don't take it.  ;)

    1. I'm about to sign the mortgage over in her name, since she runs this house! If only she'd chip in on the bills. ;)

  4. You are the best kind of crazy! Toys with nine squeakers and family birthday selfies are what every dog should get for their birthday.

  5. I love it! We celebrate birthdays for our dogs too. We even assigned our rescue dog a birthday that was an approximation of where his real birthday might be, just so he wouldn't feel left out when we celebrated our purebred's day. :)
