Happy Birthday Dog!

My dog’s birthday is Saturday. He turns 2! Last year, for the big 0-1, I bought him his favorite treat and took him on a special outing to the park. This year (since he is so grown up) I have invited some friends to go to a dog friendly brunch. I think it’s fun to do something special to celebrate your dog. Of course I realize that my dog isn’t aware it’s his birthday, but I do think all dogs appreciate having a day that they get extra-special attention even if they don’t understand what it’s all about.
If you’re looking for something to do for your dog’s birthday, Dogster posted this article recently with some fun ideas for your dog’s big day. It even has a recipe for a dog-friendly cake.
If you’re not really the dog-cake baking type, don’t worry, you can get one from a local dog bakery! Grateful Dog Bakery in North Ridgeville bakes up all kinds of special treats for dogs. In addition to cookies and donuts, they bake dog birthday cakes. Grateful Dog also offer catering services, and you can rent their “Paw”ty Room for a 2-hour celebration, which includes a 6” birthday cake.

One Lucky Dog in Medina also bakes dog cakes and cookies, and has a great selection of dog gifts and cards to make the day extra special. You can even order online, but still support a local business, which is kinda great.
