Birthday Dog

Dooley’s birthday is today! (4th of July) To honor such an occasion we decided that ridicule would be the best present we could give Dooley. So we dressed her up in a pink birthday girl outfit that is way to small for her and put a birthday hat on her as well.

Birthday Outfit, Dooley the Bulldog
Please don't think differently of Courtney and I for doing this to our dog.

To be honest, I don’t think she really minded wearing the outfit, but we did not leave it on her for long. The real present came later in the form of a tasty treat made out of organic plain yogurt, strawberries, and blueberries in the shape of an American flag.

Dooley is now 1 year old. I think we are going to have to start calling her a dog instead of a puppy. They grow up fast. Does anyone else think its a little strange that we are doing more to celebrate the birth of our dog than the birth of our nation? Happy 4th of July!
