Happy birthday to Abby!
You are definitely not the only one who goes all out on your dog's birthday. We not only celebrate the actual birthday but we also celebrate their "gotcha day" as well. That's the day they were adopted and came to live in their "forever home."
Daisy's birthday is Jan. 13 and her gotcha day is August 8th. Charlie's birthday is March 26th and his gotcha day is August 13th. And we don't know little Heidi's birthday but her gotcha day is April 2 and she got a wonderful new pink bed and a new pink collar with her name in rhinestones and lots of treats.
If you check out the picture of Daisy that I use as my profile picture you will notice that she is wearing a daisy headband. That was for her 6th birthday and we had a big party for her. She is very special to me (as they all are but she had the worst life before we adopted her and I pamper her a little more than I do the other dogs to make up for her horrible past).
I have two gotcha days coming up in August and I've already stashed away toys for Charlie who just loves anything that squeeks and special treats for Daisy who could care less about toys. I love celebrating their special days.
