A SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY

Well folks, as of November 26th we’re another year older! Harley is 6 years old! He had a great celebration – we threw him a surprise birthday party! #yeswedid

Harley has hosted and attended a few birthday celebrations with his four legged furrends at Olde Towne Pet Resort in the past. This year, I wanted to do something a little bit different 🙂

Since his birthday was the day before Thanksgiving, and his family and “two legged” furrends would already be together for the big turkey day holiday feast – why not celebrate him on Thanksgiving day?

As the gifts kept crowding the coffee table, Mr. Smarty Doodle began to suspect something was “up.” Therefore I wasn’t at all surprised when I saw him “slither” like an anaconda around a gift bag and behind the flower vase reaching for an unwrapped birthday item…

He was after this one particular tug toy. Happy when he got it – he even removed the tag himself…

After dinner, the few of us who hadn’t fallen into a food induced coma – gathered around the birthday doodle, and “yes” – we sang the birthday song as he preceded to open his gifts all by himself…

At one point he went in deep searching for goodies…

Very methodical and ever so patient, Harley has this knack of being able to remove all labels, tags, and packaging, never tearing or ripping the toy itself #amazing

He played, he ran, he chased, he tugged until he could do no more…

It was one fine Doodle infused double holiday celebration.

And how was your holiday?

    Happy Birthday, my friend! Sounds like a great time and you got lots of good stuff! Enjoy being six! By the way, when I read your blog the related post photos are just blanks, it was the same way the other day, but I thought it was a fluke. Not sure if I’m the only one with the issue or if it is on your end, but I see related posts on other blogs. Thought you might want to know. Enjoy the weekend!

      Hi Emma – The pawty was a great hit. I’m working on the related post photo slots. Trying to get it only on the related boxes and not in the post again (which is what it has been doing – ugh!) If you know how to help – please dm me. Thanks – have fun in FL.

      Thanks! lazy penguins! I wanted to do something different, and since the family was together for the holiday, it made for a “ready to go” party! Worked out great – I even loved the fact that the gifts came wrapped BOL Take care, and do stop back by again soon!
