Party Animal!

Dignan turned 7 and we celebrated him!

He is truly the sweetest most laid back dog ever.

This was a VERY last minute party. As we were eating dinner a few nights ago, Ella randomly asked us how old Dignan was. I said 8 but Bob said 7. I knew his birthday was either in June or July but couldn't remember. Bob went and found his papers so we could figure it out. Turns out his birthday was July 22nd! It was 4 days before his actual birthday when we found this out. Ella's first reaction was, lets throw him a party! Duh.
I made the invite first thing and we went and put it in Finley's mailbox. (our new neighbors Andy and Jackie's dog)

We really didn't do anything else for the party until the day of so it was full on party planning mode all day and it was so fun! We had a very successful Dollar Tree run. We stocked up on dog bowls, treats and toys. I made a dog house out of a cardboard box and we are still playing in it.

I tried to set up a mini obstacle course for the dogs but it wasn't a huge hit. I had some sticks that the dogs were supposed to go in and out of. Finely won hands down. Then we attempted to have them jump through the hulu hoop. Andy won that one.

After dinner, the adults and kids played a game. It was hilarious. I'm embarrassed to say that we have owned this game for years. You put some gak in the dog's mouth and then roll the dice. Whatever number you land on is how many times you pump the dog leash. I can't explain the horrible and hysterical sound that comes when you pump the leash. If the dog doesn't poop the gak out on your turn, then it's the next players roll. You want the dog to poop on your turn so you can scoop it up with your shovel. Whoever collets 3 poops first, wins.

After Jackie won the game, we sang Happy Birthday to Dignan and let the dogs eat some cake. I found this recipe for an actual dog cake. It was basically peanut butter, pumpkin and oats. I did try it. It tasted just like I would imagine a dog treat to taste like. Very bland and blah. Turns out Dignan and Finely LOVED it though.

We ended the night by showering Dignan with gifts, kisses from Finley and goodie bags for the birthday boy and guest to take home.
