ROCKET'S SPOIL YOUR HOUND DAY

Recommended Posts

For those GT'rs that have been around a while you won't want to miss this Sunday the 24th. 

November 24 was Rocket's birthday. :confetti

Last year when he crossed over in October,  his birthday was changed to "Spoil Your Hound Day."   It was just a day to do something with your hounds like a special walk, or get them a special treat like ice cream or fries etc.  Rocket would be proud to give other hounds any excuse to have food that was no good for them. :lol

Rocket's French Fry Day in April is also National French Fry Day. 

We love you and your beautiful wife Lexie forever Rocket! Never forgotten. :beatheart:beatheart

November 24th is also my Jenny’s birthday! She’ll be 2 years old. I’ll be sure to spoil her extra special in honor of dear Rocket.

Grace and I will be going on a greyhound walk around Wollaton Park in Nottingham on that day with a lot of other greyhounds. I'm sure she could be persuaded to participate in the odd French Fry (chips in the UK :D) at the end of it in honour of Rocket.

It is only a couple of days after Val's dental and she will be losing a lot of teeth, so the special foods may have to wait, but we will think of something!

How can I spoil them more when they are already spoiled rotten?

Example: does anyone else give ice cream or egg nog (depending  on season) every single night?

I’m pretty sure Rocket got ice cream every night, I know it was in the instructions when he stayed with us :lol

Rocket let us know when it was 8:15 PM every evening.  That's when he had ice cream.  Not that he was spoiled. :rotfl

Rocket would be proud to know that other hounds are going to get to eat things they shouldn't have in his honor.

So far today Buddy has had the finished cream tub and the gravy from our lunch plates...if this seems a little mean on ‘Spoil your hound day’ it’s because he’s still on a diet from being spoilt too much in the last 18 months. Later I will be adding a little bit of salmon risotto to his tea, possibly delivered in an ice cream cone. We will probably end the day with a little light spooning with ear and tummy scritches on the living room floor. Is this adequate?

Val isn't much of a foodie, I might try some eggnog later. We will definitely be going on an extra long walk this morning.

Sounds like Buddy is celebrating Rocket's Birthday in style!

Sounds like a perfect plan. 

Trolley is here hanging out with the girls today, so a little later we will make a run for french fries.  There may also be some ice cream served a little later too.

Octane started the morning with 3 or 4 scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of bacon!, a human sized scoop of fresh fried hash browns, and a dab of pumpkin.  He just finished a Buddy Biscuit treat. Tonight he will have one of his favorites: raw beef kidney and raw ground turkey neck. That will be followed by some homemade pumpkin pie with a little milk for a chaser for his midnight snack before bedtime!

Octane is a foodie and loves the food but you know though this is still more fun for me I think.  It is wonderful to specifically take a day and spoil your hound! Heaven knows they deserve it. Thank you Rocket!!! And HAPPY !!!!!!!BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!! 

:beatheart:banana:kiss2:balloonparty:pepper:b-day Octane says he loves you Rocket-can't thank you enough :hehe

Cletus KLTO seems to excel at the French Fry game. 

We still miss Rocket every day.  Even with the girls here, there is just not the same level of chaos as having a big, goofy boy in the house. 

PeeS - Happy Birthday, Punkin!

Lawsy, MsJan - everyone is SO polite.  I could see that becoming a bloody brawl in certain groups.

Warm chikken broth toast - here's to you, Rocket,  miss you, buddy.


Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.

Vonnie is on a restricted diet, but was treated to tripe jello.  Mmmmmmmmmmmm.  Barney had some too. 

Mom's lunch included cheddar cheese, so we cheated and each of them got a little of that too.  Happy hounds!!
