(Updated Post 2) The Golden Girls 4th of July and Birthdays Celebration


Recommended Posts

We are having our traditional 4th of July greyhound party but putting a new spin on it this year.  In the past, Rocket hosted this party for his friends and those friends who couldn't handle the noise of fireworks. With Rocket's passing in October and the arrival of Petunia this year, we are instead having a birthday party for the Golden Girls, all of whom have birthdays in July.  Our friends who usually come here to avoid fireworks can't be here today, but we are thinking about them and missing them, wishing they were able to be here too. (Conner and Val we miss you) 

So, the first picture is a teaser with more to come later. From left to right - Trolley who turned 12, Petunia who will be 11, and our friend Bella who will also be 11.

To quote Petunia - "I ain't wearing no stinking tiara......oh hell no...." 

More to come later tonight.

Warning - pic heavy. 

Last week Petunia got a box addressed to "Petunia and her guests."  Lexie sent a little peanut butter for the party girls. :chow  Thank you, Lexie!

Bella found the meatball treats

After lots of treats, the highlight of the party was served.  Each pup got a birthday sundae made of whippy cream, a swirl of peanut butter, a ginger snap and topped with a large blueberry. Our neighbor Pat stopped by to see the dogs and ended up being the sundae server.

Yes, you can tell that's exactly what she's thinking.  :lol   And so thoughtful of Lexie to send peanut butter ahead of time.
