Yes, I am that girl. I am the dog-mom who spoils her fur babies and gives them their own little piece of Christmas morning and who throws them a birthday party. And as our black lab/border collie Princeton is getting to be an old man, I only increase the awesomeness he receives every year.
Our poor little guy has arthritis and isn't SO much a fan of having a new fur baby around, so I wanted to make today special for him. I headed to Party City while Mr. Charming was on his way home from work and made the kitchen Princeton's extra-special party zone. This was Charlie's first year seeing a Pimental puppy birthday and he was more excited than any of us. Which isn't saying much, he's a 6 month old spaz of a Schnauzer and is always excited. So. The boys enjoyed a special dinner of rice with new york strip steak cubes, Puppy Ice Cream with a frosted donut dog cookie and gluten-free/grain-free dog cookie party favors for a later time. My carpet by the way is now covered in rainbow sprinkles. Something about that makes me so happy. They so enjoyed the day.
Princeton was even an awesome sport and let mommy put a Birthday Pin on his collar while daddy put him in his birthday hat to take photos. This is what we do with our weeknights folks. I love these little nuggets though and they deserve all the love. All the love.
