Today is a super-duper day, as it is Rocket's 9th Birthday! This little guy makes my world so wonderful. He truly is my best friend and companion. He has the biggest heart inside his 12-pound body and makes sure to show us that we are loved every day. We love celebrating his Birthday so I thought I would share some photos with you.
Instead of his normal kibble for breakfast, I added some home-made chicken broth and veggies to his food. I made chicken noodle soup from scratch the other day because I have been under the weather with a bad cold. Rocket loved the unexpected treat when he ran into the kitchen. My husband and I took him to his favorite pet store and he had a blast meeting other dogs, smelling ALL the smells and running up and down the aisles.
When we got home, I made a watermelon Birthday cake. I have been making this for him for the past 4 years. It's watermelon, cantaloupe, apple, strawberries and blueberries. I use a mini star cookie cutter to create the shapes. It's a great cake to make because the whole family (humans and pets) can enjoy it!
We went on a nice walk and now Rocket is sound asleep. Tonight, we are all going to curl up on the couch and watch a movie. Really, a great day. Happy Birthday, Rocket!
