  1. What a field day it is for pets. Haven’t a friggin’ clue what is going on but all the perks. We used to give our dog a hamburg patty cake with wiener candles.

    Never tried the party hats though. Next pet for sure.

    1. My dog is always in our way at Christmas, until we get to her presents. She’s learned that when we tell her ‘That one’s yours, Sophie!’ she gets to pull the tissue out of the bag and see what’s in there.
      Same thing with her birthday; she gets a little doggie cake and some kind of new toy usually.

      1. My dog does the same but even after we give him his toys/chews he still hangs around. I think he enjoys everyones excitement and the sound of warping paper ripping lol

  2. I love this one! We had a join birthday party for my cat and my parent’s dog this year and everyone made fun us :)

      1. i did see a small child at an antique store the other day with a spikey diamond studded collar…it was awkward,i felt like asking the mother what exactly goes on at home…. and Neil your reply made me laugh out loud at work.

  3. i love my dog. a little celebration of the day he was born seems appropriate. i don’t do birthday cake though…i make him a home made hamburger shaped like a bone and gently iced with a bit of peanut butter…this year instead we celebrated with a boston terrier get together (he played with about 30 other bt’s and then we went to the off leash for a friendly dog meetup where he played with his other friends. then home to his people and to sleep like a pampered pouch in a queen sized, pillow topped bed snuggled under a down filled duvet…lol

    gotta love a furkid…they are AWESOME!

  4. my pup (Captain Rockstar McScruffle-Muffins) doesn’t have a birthday, he was a stray so we don’t know when he was born. We use the day he was adopted as his ‘birthday’ and mark it with table-scraps, walkies, and wrestling with teddy bears (basically just like every other day)

    also, giving your pets ridiculous names should be an awesome thing

  5. I just wanted to say how I liked this! I was surfing on some different forums when I found this site. After spending some time on this weblog I’ve come up with some ideas for my website. I just thought I’d let you know

  6. Is it just my computer or does your website look a lot different in google chrome? I have just installed google chrome and all the webpages like youtube and google look the same but your site looks a little different. It looks like the font is a bit smaller and its different type of font.

    1. It’s all right. I use Google chrome too. And somethings changed, but one way to fix is Ctrl + or –
      to make it smaller of bigger. If you have a scroll mouse, use that while pressing Ctrl. THe font changes, but it’s all right.

  7. Bahaha.
    I laughed so hard at this when I saw it because that is such a thing that I would do.
    Even when it’s not their birthday, I throw them a party just to thank them for being them.
    My bunny loves all the extra attention :P

  8. haha, we had a party for our dog jack this year. Well we dont know when his actual birthday is, so we celebrate on the day we ‘inherited’ him. This year we wrapped up a big bone and he ripped the paper off it then took it to a corner in our back yard like he always does with his food. :D

  9. I’ve done this for my cat for every one of the fourteen birthdays that I was living at home for, and when she turned fifteen and I moved off to college, I made my parents do it for her anyway! I might just come home that weekend this year, her sixteenth, since we share a birthday anyway…

  10. my dog actually unwraps his. (well, i hold one end, say, “Come on Buddy, present time!” and he tears the wrapping paper into strips with his teeth, then proudly snags his present and trots off to the corner to guard it from my aunt’s wiener dog) and on his birthday we take him to McDonalds :P

  11. I’m pretty sure I’ve treated all my dog’s fairly well, but have not celebrated their birthday’s and now I hope they don’t feel less loved! That would not be good at all:(

  12. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

  13. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for
    your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
