A Furry Birthday

Yesterday we celebrated Charlie’s 7th birthday! Gosh, how time flies! It seems like it was just yesterday that we threw his 6th Birthday Pawty {post here}.


After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans during Matt’s final year of law school in New Orleans, Charlie’s parents were rescued from St. Charles Avenue. Soon thereafter, Charlie was born on Mardi Gras and he has been partying ever since.

So to spoil our fur baby on his birthday, we started off the day with a custom peanut butter banana cake from Canine Café.

 It only took him 25 seconds to devour his cake…

Afterwards we went for a 2 hour birthday walk with Charlie’s fur friend Abigail.



Happy Birthday Charlie!

    Happy birthday Charlie!! That cake sounds SO good (even though it's made for a dog ha). And I love that he went on a birthday walk with a hat – too cute!

    The cake looks awesome! He's lucky to have such cool parents! I wonder how many beads he gave out this year for Mardi Gras, Charlie's a stud so I'm sure wayyyyy too many!

    Haha so cute! Don't show my cat or she will be real pissed. I think I gave her like a piece of turkey or something for her birthday.
