We’ve just kind of laid low this weekend.
But there was one party that I wasn’t missing for the world. Best party I’ve been to in quite a while. 🙂
My sweet Hardy turned three today. I wasn’t about to let everything that’s going on right now make me miss celebrating this guy’s birthday. He has been so, so sweet over the past few days (and really his whole life, for that matter)…he’s just the best dog in the whole world. The least he deserved was a fun birthday.
Hardy got two presents for his birthday…
…a new, bigger (since he’s gained weight recently), Alabama collar…
…and a new raccoon. He loves all of his animal toys, and this one can be stuffed with an empty water bottle to make a crunching sound. He is obsessed with what’s in his toys/getting whatever is in the toys out, so this should be fun for him. 🙂
He wasn’t too sure after the initial newness wore off, but he’s back to playing with it now.
Here’s a video of him getting the toys (excuse my super raspy voice – the breathing tube wrecked my throat, so I’m still nursing that…and my house is a wreck from getting satellite installed and just general craziness. So just look at the dog basically. :)):
He also got a doggy doughnut…
(which was super messy)
…and a doggy birthday cake, made especially by his Mom. 🙂
I make him a birthday cake every year, but I used a new recipe this year. You can see it here (it’s the one at the top). I think he liked it a lot more!
(he licked all of the icing off first)
The aftermath…don’t worry, he finished this off shortly after I took this picture.
I think he had an awesome birthday. And believe me, he deserved it more than ever.
Happy birthday sweet Hardy puppy! Mom and Dad love you!
