A reader brought this article to my attention: Pet owners fete dogs with lavish birthday parties. It described one party where Lexi, the Daschund, “munched on dog-friendly cakes made of peanut butter, yogurt and carob, sipped Prosecco and nibbled on miniature cocktail hot dogs with her 15 canine guests.” It also introduced Ernie, a Manhattan Bichon Frise who celebrated his “Bark Mitzvah” when he was three (or thirteen in dog years).
Well, at least this article makes me feel a little more normal. I had considered throwing Toki a birthday party at the Zoom Room, complete with treats, a cake, balloons, and a mini-agility lesson for the guests, but then I thought that maybe it was a little over the top . . . .
After all, my birthday is in a few weeks, so we’ll just have a joint birthday party.
See I’m not crazy, I’m just on top of the latest trends.
