It’s Oli’s 11th birthday today! Hooray! That’s cause for celebration indeed. Our senior spotty partied in style this year. Take a peek at Oli’s 11th birthday party with homemade dog-friendly birthday cake, treats, toys, and more.
Celebrating the Big 1-1
We celebrated Oli’s birthday yesterday with the full family, as Easter Monday is a statutory holiday here. We usually have a big birthday bash full week of posts, but with Oli’s birthday this year falling between Easter, Earth Day, and ANZAC Day it’s a pretty packed schedule, both on the blog and in real life. Don’t worry, Oli’s barkday pawty was still as special as ever. Even a little more so with every year that passes. He and Humphrey got to have leftover birthday cake with breakfast this morning. Can’t beat that as a pawesome start to a very special birthday day!
Cake, Toys, and Other Doggone Great Birthday Fun
Oli’s birthday cake this year was a layered pumpkin and beef cake with potato frosting. We had a little creative fun with treat dough and some natural colourings and created some marbled rainbow unicorn bone treats, too. As a very special birthday gift, Oli also received a giant homemade stuffed birthday present dog toy. Paws and fangs off, Humphrey! This one’s Oli’s. DIY details on how to make a wrapped present stuffed toy as well as the recipe and instructions for our layered dog birthday cake will follow in our upcoming posts. Other doggy snacks on the pawty table with be shared over time in our usual recipe posts. Stay tuned for more soon.
Birthday Love and Wishes
Thank you for all of the love you’ve shared with both our boys since we started this blog, for being party of Oli’s world this past year. We love receiving birthday wishes for Oli (I read your messages out loud to the dogs), so please say hello. Love and licks from our furfamily to yours!
