On Sunday, we celebrated Peanut's 1st birthday. Peanut is so special to us and such a joy that we only feel it right that she get a celebration of her first year. Her actual birthday is December 1, 2006, but we celebrated on the 9th since that was the first date we were able to put it together.
Peanut had so much fun! Several of her doggy friends showed up: Spike, Tiger Bob, Gretchen, and of course her brothers, Chip and Norman. She had a fantastic time running around the yard with all her friends. She got lots of cute gifts from everyone including squeaky toys and treats. We had a doggy cake made out of Milk Bones and peanut butter for the four-legged guests and of course, a regular chocolate cake for the two-legged guests. All the four-legged guests got doggy bags with treats and a card filled with pictures of Peanut's first year. Everyone seemed to like that.
Peanut was so pooped at the end of the day that she took a nap in her little room (her crate in our bedroom) in the early evening, which she almost never does unless she's totally exhausted.
Here's to all the dogs, cats, and other animals that make our lives more joyful than they otherwise would be!
