I just realized that yesterday's post was our official 100th post. That is a lot of doxie goodness! In honor of this most momentous occasion I have decided to post the most adorable/hilarious pictures of our family reunion.
Many people might not be aware of the fact that all three of our dogs have birthday's in February. Well, technically we don't know Flash's exact birthday month since we got him from the Orlando SPCA and he had just arrived there that day from Alabama and didn't have a detailed history. But, we did adopt him in the beginning of February so we made that his birthday month since it's his adoption month anyway. When we adopted Dottie and took her to the vet the doctor was pretty certain that she was four months old making her a February pup. I thought that was a good sign we belonged together since she would have a matching birthday month with Flash. Then came Alven. Alven is a pure breed pup with papers so when we adopted him after his original family who purchased him turned out to be a bunch of LOSERS (yes I still hold a grudge against them on behalf of Alven) the man who first rescued Alven was able to tell us his exact age. Sure enough another February puppy. At first we weren't sure if we could handle a third dog, but when they told me his age I knew that he had to join the February dog pack.
I had decided when we got Dottie and Alven that we would have a joint birthday party for all three dogs on February 1st in order to make things simpler. However, when my sister and mom decided to come visit me in January they wanted to have a little pre-birthday bash so that they could be included in the festivities. As I am always up for a doggy party I thought it was a great idea. The day after they arrived birthday cupcakes were obtained from the dog bakery and quick party hats were put together by yours truly (please be kind and not comment on the blue tape on the back of the hats. I put them together in a rush and didn't have time to let glue dry.)
Here are the pictures from our doggy birthday party:
This is my birthday boy Flash who is turning nine. And yes I am wearing my Flash T-shirt my mom made me last year. Represent!
Here is Alven who will be turning two. Officially entering those teen years...yay. Also, he is impossible to hold still when there is any type of food nearby so all his pictures were blurry, but I still think his ears look hilarious with the hat on.
This is my baby girl Dottie who is turning one. Oh how quickly they grow up...
I know the first picture is super blurry, but it so perfectly captures how Dottie felt about my hat and photo shoot idea that I just have to put it up.
And last, but certainly never least, is Maria! Our one and only pup party guest who came all the way from VA for the festivities and also got a party hat (hers came out looking more like a bonnet, but whatever).
Good times were certainly had by all! The cupcakes were delicious I'm sure since they were gone in less that 0.000001 seconds.
Well it's getting late now so I will be shuffling off to bed, but I wanted to say thanks to everyone who follows our little corner of the internet. It is fun sharing our doxie stories and getting to know others out there who are just as in love with their pups as we are with ours. Woohoo!
