Happy 3rd Birthday to Melvin!

…Yesterday was Melvin’s 3rd Birthday!

Usually I make Melvin a cake, but with our move coming up, I didn’t have all of my baking utensils readily available so we had to switch it up at bit!

I planned a little outing, just the two of us, to celebrate the little guy’s Birthday. It’s funny because dogs have no idea that it’s their Birthday, yet I still love doing a little special something for Mac and Melvin on their day. This year I took Melvin to Lofty Dog and a dog park about 15 min away from home.

Lofty Dog is a locally owned pet store for cats and dogs with unique goods, local treats, and specialty food. They also raise awareness and funding for animal shelters around Austin. When we went in they had a lot of homemade goodies for Melvin to pick from. Melvin chose 2 cupcake cookies, a three tier cake cookie and a fire hydrant cookie. They also have a scoop section where we picked out some homemade everyday treats and a rawhide bar. Melvin’s senses had to have been going crazy in there!

We ventured over to a dog park in Pflugerville called Harris Ridge. To our surprise there weren’t many dogs there. Melvin romped around a bit and waited for more pups to join him. Eventually a few more dogs make it out and moseyed on over to play.

After about an hour we made our way back home to celebrate with our other halves. We broke open the treats and Mac and Melvin went to town.

I’d say it was a pretty successful Birthday!

  1. I love that he picked out his birthday treats. :) When Brees goes to Tomlinsons, she straight up helps herself to the snack bar (whether I give her permission or not). Happy Bday Melvin!
