Today is this one’s birthday.
We love our Loco-bear. He gives the best snuggles.
Loco is a champion. When we adopted him, he had heartworms, and we couldn’t afford the surgery, so we had to put him on Heartguard and hope for the best. This is a very risky way to treat heartworms, but he managed to beat heartworms last July!
Also, he is a boxer. Well, a boxer mix, but that breed has a life expectancy of at most 12. He turned 13 today! He beat another set of odds in his life! We celebrate every day that we get to spend with this pup, but this day is super special. I can’t wait to spend some time with him after work!
How do you celebrate doggie birthdays?
Have you ever had a dog that beat the odds in something?
So, this week we celebrated this precious pup.
She is eleven years old! Can you believe it? She was my Christmas present nine years ago. We went to a local humane society to adopt her. Michael paid the adoption fee as my gift, and this was before he proposed! That guy knew the way to my heart!
So every year, on our pup’s birthday, we take her to Petco to pick out a toy and get a treat. It includes most of her favorite things – a walk, car ride, toy, and cookie. Of course her other favorite thing is to snuggle, which we did the rest of the evening. Here’s our trip to Petco!
All ready to go!
Sniffing around before we go into the store.
Looking at all the toys. She especially likes the squeaky ones.
Headed home with our choice. I know this toy won’t last long, but she just got a new kong toy for Christmas from my parents, so we didn’t spend big money on this trip.
The cashier asked to give her the cookie. At Petco, the dogs can get one free cookie from the front bins. Jerzee ate it pretty quickly. We had a great time! I love celebrating this amazingly sweet and adorable dog!
