I know this weekend is all about the fourth but today we’ve been celebrating a very special fifth! It’s Sullie’s FIFTH birthday! I bet you’re thinking, “another birthday!?” Brandon, Sullie and I have birthdays within three weeks of each other!
If you’re a regular reader PBR, you know that Sullie is basically our dog child. We got her when we had just moved to Birmingham for Brandon to attend law school. We planned on waiting until second semester so that Brandon could get settled into school but then we made the mistake of starting to look “just to see what was out there.” The next thing we knew, we were coming home with a 10-week old golden retriever puppy!
We feel so lucky to have such an amazing pup. Seriously, we ask each other all the time if she could possibly be any sweeter. Sullie is so affectionate, obedient, tolerant, friendly, loyal and just ridiculously cute. I could go on and on but instead I’ll just share some pictures from birthdays over the year since I’m an
insane loving dog mom and have pretty much documented her whole life.
First birthday – complete with hats and a cake.
Clearly, she’s thrilled to wear this hat! 😉
Second birthday, a little unsure of the cake this year!
(Third birthday – I can’t find a photo. I fail.
We were in the middle of moving from Birmingham to Charlotte and life was crazy!)
And finally, five years old today!
Begging for the peanut butter banana Kong that I made for her!
Am I the only crazy pet parent out there? Please tell me that someone else bakes for their dog and makes them wear birthday hats! 😉
