Ranger's Birthday

Do you celebrate your pet's birthday?

We do.  Yeah, we're that kind of people.

Ranger turned 4.  As far as we know.  We got him from the pet shelter and they guessed on his age.  At least everyone still thinks he's a puppy.  And yep, we made up a birthday for him based on the shelter's guess. September 1.

Do you do anything special for your pet on their birthday?

We make something yummy to eat.  Last year was the first birthday we had Ranger for and celebrated with pumpkin pie.  This year it was carrot cake.  The kids decorated it.

And yes, Ranger got a piece.  He must have thought we were going to take it away because he scarfed it down in less than 10 seconds.  I didn't even have time to take a movie. 

Ad yes, he got a present.  I made him a new doggie bed.

I used the old curtain from our bathroom door and the stuffing from Ranger's old dog bed and made him a brand new one.  It's a bonus that the color matches his hair.  And the couches.  What a color coordinated dog we have.

He just might have to fight the rest of us for it.  Or maybe I need to make some more floor pillows for the rest of us to sit on.  It's kinda comfy.  And I'm rather impressed with myself that I managed to sew one.  It's really not too hard.  I didn't use a pattern or directions.  I just modeled it after Scooter's floor pillow and I somehow made it work.  We'll see how long it lasts.  At least it wasn't expensive to make.  I only bought $6 of stuff (button kits and piping) and used what I had to make it. 

How do you celebrate a pet's birthday?
