The Birthday Dog

by Melissa {The Dominion Project}

Let me first say – this post is not exactly house-related. But Ethan took some great pictures yesterday, and I just felt the need to share. Be warned though, they’re all of the dog…

Yesterday was Abby’s birthday. Maybe it’s a little crazy that we know the dog’s birthday  (it’s on her AKC paperwork…it’s not rocket science) or crazier that we actually remembered it. Or even crazier that we did something special for her. But it’s not like we threw a party, made a cake, invited her friends and put on party hats, so I’m thinking this ranks pretty low on the crazy scale.

Abby loves rawhide bones. So we bought her the biggest bone Petsmart sells…

She was not very patient as I tried to remove the shrink-wrap. Scratch that. She went absolutely nuts – uncontrolled barking and jumping around in circles. But rightfully so. That bone is huge!

Oh, and I was still covered in paint from some weekend projects. Lookie there – this post IS house-related! (Yeah…it’s a stretch.)

The only thing Abby loves more than rawhide bones, is trips to the park. So we took care of that too. After dark of course, so we have the place all to ourselves – she’s a rather social dog and not all park-goers are appreciative when she runs over for a “visit.”

When we get to the park, we always hit up the slides. Yes, slides. On the playground. Come on – how cool is it that our dog does slides?!? It makes me laugh. Every time.

{Trip One – Running}

{Trip Two – Belly Slide}

{Trip Three – Flying with Frog Legs}

{And her best Marmaduke impression}

So there you have it – a super exciting Saturday night. I promise the next post will be much more house related. Thanks for indulging me!
