Happy RUFF-day!!!

Let me start by say… OH YES WE DID!

At the beginning of the week it was our dog’s ( Meatball) birthday he turned 4 and yes the kids and I consider him family. My husband just likes him as a pet, and another thing the word DOG is not allowed at home it’s furry baby to be correct.
Well like I said before it was his birthday!!! So the kids and I had originally planned to just make him a doggy safe cake and that’s all. But then Miss Daisy started going all out with inviting his little doggie friends and little party hats and then I of course the party planner in me loved it!
So we made him a PARTY!!!

I made some invitations all with a pup theme!

I added a dollop of Greek yogurt an a piece of bacon. Now tell me he doesn’t look like he’s going to enjoy that!

Once all the guests came we served and sang the birthday song, and they dug into it. Boy are they some party animals!
