Two years ago today I signed the paperwork to make Bilbo mine all mine! Unfortunately, as I just arrived back from my trip yesterday afternoon, I didn't really have time to prepare a proper celebration for the little man.
We did have a lovely walk in the park which was full of wonderful autumn colors in the sunshine.
One of Bilbo's favorite water fountains was broken and he couldn't quite decide whether he was thirsty enough to overcome his dread of getting wet!
Being the terrible dogmom that I am, I didn't even remember to bring some birthday treats in my pocket for the walk. Luckily Billy never forgets that he is a star and is always happy to pose for the puperazzi.
I did manage to pop to Soggy Paws on my way back from running errands so he received plenty of yummy adoptaversary gifts.
I was a bit sad that I didn't manage to get a fancy pup cake but I suppose that's more exciting for the humans than the pups. From Bilbo's point of view a cow trachea, desiccated pigs heart, chunk of antler and shriveled duck necks constitute a fairly impressive spread.
Still, it did make me think that I should separate his adoptaversary from his birthday and give him another date to celebrate. So Billy's official birthday (kinda like the queen really) is going to be six months from now on April 6. Hopefully I'll be able to pull together a proper pooch party for the boy complete with pupcakes - and now I don't have to say that he's FIVE for a few months yet!
In the meantime, I did whip up a dapper hat for him from some fabric I had lying around in the house.
Now he's ready to party! Not to mention being suitably attired to wish Skye a happy birthday. I think he's rather pleased to share his adoptaversary date with a pretty pitty girl. What a flirt.
And while we're talking milestones, my last blog post was my 100th! So I decided to set up a facebook page for the blog where I can post lots more photos of the handsome guy. Like us!
happy adoptaversary (or happy "gotcha day" as Bad Rap says) to you dapper gentleman, Billy! and both I personally and "Maisie and Me" have liked your FB page! :)ReplyDelete

How cute is that mini hat??? I think our Mr. B needs a mini-hat. Is that Humboldt Park? It looks like it's going to be beautiful in the fall.ReplyDelete
Happy Gotcha Day Bilbo! I hope you made a great speech (like your namesake) in that dapper hat! Skye thinks she's never seen a more handsome bully boy- what a flirt. Hope you enjoyed all those tasty treats, and thanks for the birthday wishes on our end!ReplyDelete
