Our dear Broozi has turned 6. This year, we celebrated in style – banners, dog balloons cut out decorations and even a party with humans, who so willingly indulged my insanities. We missed his old friends from Vizag – Simba, Ginger, Casper and Luka…
I’m not the arts and crafts type person – although I so wish I was. But judging by the party I put on for Broozi, you’d never know it!! Here’s some pictures of yesterday’s madness. I just wish we had some dog friends over but our new apartment is so tiny, that it would have been chaos. I completely squandered my chances of a dog party when I had a nice big garden in Vizag…live and learn I guess.
The pennant banner template is from Sweet Beanz WordPress site You don’t even need to measure the triangles – just print and cut out!
She even has printable Pdfs of letters and numbers you can print out. I thought it was easier to just write the letters (but i used her hearts for the ‘Os’) and the circle templates. So easy!
And of course…the doggie balloons…this idea from Martha Stewart. You can download the Pdf and print out the ears, the nose and mouth. We added the line down from the nose, the spots and whiskers ( cos martha didn’t think of that).
Then we wheeled in the cake…As he’s allergic to gluten (which would include things you’d make a cake with), his cake was baked chicken with egg and hung curd was used for the ‘icing’. Dried fish treats formed the ‘6’. Gone in 1 min 13 secs.
He then spent the rest of the evening being brushed and petted by each of the children
The party is over…Broozi is now 6 years old. We got him five months after getting married. We even bought his bowl three months before he was even born! I have changed so much since getting a dog – i’m kinder towards animals and more gentle, caring and patient. Broozi is our resident ‘Happiness Officer’ and he’s doing a fantastic job! (I’m Galley in-charge and external affairs; DH is maintenance, security, and science & technology). As all dog owners will tell you, they are so much more to us than just dogs. Our lives would not be the happy existence it is without him.
