Happy Birthday Rocco – Let’s Party!

April 25, 2016

Happy Birthday Rocco. We had his party on Saturday and it was a great success. We did not invite any dogs, all the guests were the humans he loves most! My husband and I, our kids and their significant others and my mom. It was the perfect group. Rocco was so happy!

Happy Birthday Rocco. Peanut Butter Treats

Before the party I went running around trying to find doggie ice cream. I thought for sure that Petsmart would have it – NO. Target – NO. Finally found it at Albertsons. But while at Petsmart I found these little peanut butter cup looking treats. Grabbed a box for Rocco. When I got home I gave him one. He was a little unsure what to do with it. He was droooling! He knew he wanted to eat it. LOL So anyway, took him a minute but he figured it out. He loved it!

The party was fun. We all really did whatever Rocco wanted to do. My daughter and her boyfriend brought bubbles for him. He is afraid of toys now, and I completely forgot about how much he loves bubbles. He was in heaven. They played for a long time! Rocco came in and was exhausted. We had a bbq and of course Rocco got his very own burger. He scarfed it down! I gave him his normal dinner first because I knew he wouldn’t want to eat THAT after having a yummy burger.

For dessert he got to have some doggie ice cream. It was so cute, he ate it very carefully and deliberately. Didnt want to miss a drop! My daughter put a candle on for him.

We obviously didn’t make him blow it out. But it made for a cute photo.  I got him two boxes of the little ice cream cups. Frozen Paws I think it was called. Its easy for him to eat and something cold might make his jaw feel better.

After all that we put on the animal channel so he could watch some tv. We wanted My Cat from Hell. It kept his attention for a little, but then he fell asleep! He had a very full day. Full of fun and love from all his favorite people. I think he had a great birthday party!

I hope that we can celebrate with him again next year!! Miracles happen all the time 🙂

Planning a dog birthday party

April 21, 2016 – Party weekend coming!

Rocco, our cute little boxer pup. He is turning 6!

This weekend is Rocco’s birthday party. I have never planned a dog’s birthday party before. It’s not as easy as one might think. I am NOT inviting any dogs. He doesn’t play well with others. Haha. He plays like a boxer and other dogs seem to get kind of freaked out. Rocco is not mean at all, he just wants to knock the dogs to the ground. Then chase them and knock them back down. Anyway, we are not inviting any dogs. But I am thinking I should invite some people for him to play with. People he loves!

So of course I will invite the kids and their significant others, my mom, but who else?? Should I invite friends? All these decisions.

I know for sure that I am going to have my husband bbq and I am going to have him make a steak for Rocco. I dont want him to get a tummy ache, so it will be a small steak 🙂 I am going to get doggie ice cream and I will make him an ice cream sandwich with the pumpkin oatmeal cookies I recently made for him and the ice cream. Hey, if you havent seen my recipe – dogs LOVE it – I mean devour it – they drool when they see the cookies! Here is the recipe.  Oh, I didn’t mention. That recipe is gluten-free!

Anyway, back to the party. I was trying to think of games/activities that Rocco might enjoy. Activity 1. Have everyone lay down on the floor and let him run around to each of us giving kisses? Activity 2. Run up and down the hill with him.  Activity 3. Go for a walk. Activity 4. Cuddle on the couch – but everyone must allow him to sit on their lap if he wants.

How does that sound? Do you think it will be an amazing birthday party for Rocco?
