Birthday Girls

Sophie and Lola birthdays | © #dog #bichonfrise

Happy Monday! I’ve had some comments and requests recently for “more Lola and Sophie” so I’m sharing some puppy love today. They’re sporting new haircuts, happy that their groomer is able to go back to work again. 🐾🐾

Lola and Sophie both have May birthdays.

Lola turned 2 on May 29th and Sophie turned 1 on May 17th.

They celebrated with some favorite Sweet Potato Treats! These one-ingredient treats are made in the USA and are simply dehydrated sweet potato~ no artificial ingredients, fillers, or preservatives. They come in different sizes or “cuts”, but I’ve found they’re easy to cut into smaller pieces with kitchen shears if you want to portion out your dog’s treats throughout the day. . .

Or if you’re bribing your pups to pose for photos. 🐾🐾 :)

If you’re looking for grain-free treats for your dog that are healthy too, Lola and Sophie give them 4 paws (8 paws?) up!

I found this pet birthday crown last year for Lola. It came with numbers to celebrate each birthday . . .

 So I got one for Sophie this year. 🐾🐾🎉

Sophie is high energy and still very much a puppy so I have to photograph her when she’s tired and its nap time.

She says she’s had her treats so she’s ready to take her crown off and nap now. . .

Lola is always alert and hopeful another treat will come her way. ;)

It’s dog gone hot here and definitely feels like summer with the humidity on the rise. Hope you’re finding ways to beat the heat and if you’re in the path of Tropical Storm Cristobal, stay safe. ♥

    You K9 kids are absolutely adorable! I would love to support your birthday efforts with our NEW PetCakes birthday box as my gift to you. The only thing I love more than our fur babies are pet parents that treat their animals like K9 kids! Thank you for sharing your pictures! Yes, more Lola and Sophie.

    Happy birthday to your darling girls, they are adorable in their crowns! It is hot and humid here with possible rain from the tropical depression. Happy Monday Mary♥️

    Happy Birthday to your beautiful girls Mary! I have spent part of each week for the last two months in a hunt for a black/brindle Scottie boy. Right now I’m on about 8 wait lists. But, looks like an expected litter in Ohio, due by July 4th, will bring me a bouncing baby. I’m soooo excited, even though I miss my Fibber McGee each and everyday. And, I’ll have to wait until September to bring him home.

    The quilt the girls are on is cute too. What can you tell us about the quilt?

    • June 8, 2020 at 1:20 pm

      Hi Linda, The quilt I’ve had for about 6 years. It came from Bed, Bath & Beyond. You can see it on a table with Teapot Bouquets here and used for a Vintage Tea Party here.

    My goldendoodle just got a haircut last Thursday so I understand how your dogs probably each needed one also.

    Great post! Happy Birthday to Lola and Sophie! Their crowns are so cute.
    Glad they were able to get haircuts.
    We are still having rain several times a day at home. We were at St. George Island during the approach of the storm. Lots of strong wind and waves but no damage and we had no problems getting home thankfully.
