Why would a dog need a birthday party?
They don’t know the significance of the day, and it’s not like they can communicate who they want on the guest list. They’re just dogs, right?
Not to me. They are so much more than just a domesticated animal. They’re your constant companion, faithful friend, listening ear, snuggle buddy, protector (some better than others here), entertainment, and comforter. I can’t imagine a world without dogs, and I wouldn’t want to.
So when I get the chance to express my love to my fur baby, I do so. Every chance I get. After all, our time with these pups is limited, and the years go by faster than you think.
Bella turned 10 last week. Ten! That’s huge for a giant breed dog with a short life expectancy, especially given her particularly dramatic puppyhood.
I could have gone to a dog park, but we’ve been there and done that. So I rented out an agility center that also hosts dog birthday parties. You gotta love Seattle! Think Ninja Warrior for dogs. They only allowed a small number of dogs, but it still turned out big in fun.

I got the dog cakes at Scrapps Bakery (for pets) in Seattle. No corn or soy, it was a big hit!
There were doggy bags for the party guests, and I think everyone was sufficiently pooped after this day. I know Bella had a gleam in her eye for quite a while. And while I can’t prove it, I bet you she’ll remember this for quite some time.
