As pretty much any pet parent knows, there comes a moment when we start to dread our furkids’ birthdays. Me, well, I’ve been mourning Lola Pug’s advancing age ever since she got out of her crazy puppy stage, so when her ninth birthday hit this week, I was all dread and gloom in my heart…
But that’s no way to live life, is it?
Celebrations must be had, so I brought out Lola’s “Special Occasion” porcelain Imari bowl, and a celebration dinner was presented.
But what’s a proper birthday without guests?
We were SO lucky to have Roxy back at Casa Lola with us, and she even brought a gift with her…
Always eager to help out her little cousin, Roxy showed Lola the gift, and tried to explain how to open it…
…but Lola didn’t seem to be too impressed, so Roxy took matters into her own hands…paws…face….
While Roxy played with her birthday gift to Lola Pug (Squirrel Log joy!), Lola told me exactly what she thought of her birthday so far….
But don’t despair, Pug! With the food eaten, and the gifts opened, there was only one thing left to do.
Well. I can see that Lola was totally enjoying herself.
What’s up, Roxy? You don’t like your party hat?
I clearly can’t pretend that it’s very dignified, but if anyone can pull this off, it’s you, little bird.
That’s a bit better.
…perhaps I shouldn’t have been laughing so much.
Happy Birthday, my little Pug Overlord. And thank you for sharing it with your cousin and me.
