Throwing a Party for Your Pet

Throwing a Party for Your Pet

By Jaclyn Phillips

I had the total enjoyment of throwing two birthday parties for my dog, Bart.  His 10th and 11th Birthdays. 

The first year we had 7 of the neighbor`s dogs over for cake and games.  The dogs all got along and they absolutely loved the cake.  But Bart was showered with too many gifts, and he was already spoiled enough. 

So when I had his birthday party the next year, the neighbors were asked to contribute money to the Humane Society in Bart`s name in lieu of gifts.  That way, everyone got something good to remember from Bart`s birthday.
