Despite Mother Nature’s best attempts to put a damper on Sheba and Luke’s birthday week, I think they had a good time. You’ve seen some of the birthday highlights over the last few days, but not that it has been cold, windy, dreary, and rainy here ever since Sheba’s birthday on Tuesday! Spending time outdoors is important to us all the time, and especially for birthdays. Mother Nature is not invited to any more birthdays unless she promises to bring some sunshine next time.
We tried not to let it slow us down though. We still got some walks in, and play time in the yard in between showers. Sheba had an especially nice walk on her birthday. We met one of our neighbors and he gave her lots of praise and attention which she loves. I was bundled up like it was the middle of winter, and we got snowed and sleeted on when headed back home. I didn’t love any of that, but the birthday girl didn’t mind.
On Luke’s birthday it was dry in the morning so we got out in the yard for play time. Cricket even joined us for just a little ball play! We spent the afternoon working on our photos for the Pet Treater review, which meant lots of treats and toys, so that was enjoyed as well.
Luke got the toys from the Pet Treater box, but that was not enough for him, so I also had to get out the toys I had bought for him! He was wound up like any child on their birthday, and was going strong right into the late evening. It’s been a while since he’s really worn me out, but I think that’s because up until this last week we’ve had so much nice weather. He definitely has extra energy when we’re stuck inside more.

Then of course there were special meals for each birthday with special kibble toppers – Beef Stew from Wellness* and Oracle from Dr. Harvey’s*. You saw the cheesecakes I made in our review post, but you didn’t see the final product:
So, to recap…..walks, play time, toys, special meals and desserts……and of course, we can’t forget the Bowser Beer*, which was a big hit!
I think we succeeded in making this year’s birthdays very happy, even without Mother Nature’s help!
