Charlie Turns Eight!

Over the weekend we celebrated Charlie’s 8th birthday! We had cake, pawty hats, presents and lots of outside play time. It was perfect.

Year after year we order Charlies birthday cake from the best little dog bakery – Canine Cafe. We went with his favorite flavor…peanut butter!

Since Charlie’s favorite toy is a tennis ball, we decided to load him up for his birthday.

He was in heaven!!!

You can read about his previous birthday pawties {here} and {here}!

    Happy Birthday Charlie! I love that he has pawties every year. When Dixie turned 1 we dressed her up in a pink dress and invited some other friends with dogs over. At the end of the night her dress was ruined- covered in mud. It was hilarious!

    Saturday was Lil's 4th birthday. Know what I did? I forgot until about 11:30pm and then sang her happy birthday and gave her a doggie ice cream cone. Maybe for her big 5th bday she will get a party as wonderful as Charlie 🙂 You are a good doggie mama!

    Aw! A birthday "pawty" for a dog is the cutest thing ever! We adopted our dog, Rory, so we don't know her actual birthday – but we might just have to pick a date and start doing this for her because she would absolutely love it!

    Happy birthday to your sweet and adorable pup! I need to remember to check out Canine Cafe in September when R turns two. I made her cake last year but it was a bit tedious and time consuming so I have a feeling I'll take the easy way this year. : )
