Your dog is part of the family so it goes without saying; you want to celebrate each year it fills your life with joy. It is not uncommon for most pet parents to acknowledge the pet’s birthday in one way or another. Families with children may elaborate on the celebrations with party hats, doggy treats and a special birthday cake. However you choose to commemorate the birth of your canine family member is a personal choice. You can visit your local Rockford-area Petsmart or Petco as listed below or one closest to your home, taking the birthday pup with to pick out its own birthday gift.
If you adopted your pet or happened to find it without knowing the exact date of birth, celebrate the day your dog joined the family unit. Years ago, pets were not considered such close family members, mostly residing outdoors, subjecting them to the elements, disease and other animals. In recent years, our dogs have such a strong bond with the owners and fill such a void within the home and family. Why not acknowledge that special creature by celebrating its birthday with love, attention and special treats.
Dogs indeed show more enthusiasm and excitement than the average cat during such a special occasion. However, it does not mean your cat will still appreciate the extra fuss you make, extra treats, toys and a special dinner when celebrating their birthday. When rejoicing the life of your canine, remember that a traditional birthday cake may not suit the digestive system. There are recipes that you can use to make a dog approved celebration treat.
The recipes are good enough for all to eat and you can make your own. Check out -- http://www.dog-treat-recipe-exchange.com/dog-birthday-cake-recipes. Aside from the special cake, be sure you plan a special dinner for your pup – something extraordinary that your dog absolutely loves (but is, of course, safe for your dog to eat). You can try puppy paws ice cream treat as their dessert for their special day or something else more suitable and puppy-safe. Actually a new special toy your pet can pick out will provide joy along with hours of fun for physical and mental stimulation.
To show your appreciation for your dog on its birthday and every day, it is not all about the treats and cake but the love and attention. Express to your dog the unconditional love that it gives you on a daily basis by spending time with him/her, go on walks, play ball or any other favorite game plus cuddle and snuggle together. This I the best way to show your appreciation for the canine (or feline) in your family and life, not only on its birthday but every day of the year.
