eight is great.

hey, guys! hope you had a super fun fourth of july and hopefully many of you have a long weekend. 

i am popping in today to wish a very special guy a happy birthday. today, randy is EIGHT! cannot even believe it, he still acts like a two year old.


he had a party at his daycare on wednesday with all of his furry friends. (i LOVE desert dog daycare–we have been taking our kids there for a year and a half and are pleased as punch with how great they are with penny and randy.)



penny always makes sure to be in the middle of the action.. she’s kind of a brat like that. 


they definitely enjoyed every bite, lick, and taste of the special birthday cake. 



happy birthday, randy pants. we LOVE you!


we are taking this guy camping! we were supposed to be leaving tonight, but marshall is stuck on a really hard job (boooo) so we will be leaving tomorrow morning for some camping adventures in the uintas. both of our pups love to camp (so do we!) so it should be the perfect celebration for randy.

have a wonderful weekend! chat soon.

Happy Birthday Randy. He is so cute with so much personality. I love that you share their stories here and the birthdays. They are some of my favorite posts. So funny. Enjoy camping, I love camping.

HB Randy, ha ha he looks so confused with that hat :)

cheers, Sara

Happy Birthday, Randy!!!! Love Sara and Guinness :)

Oh good lord, that last picture of the birthday boy is priceless. Although I’m sure all he wanted for his big day was whatever food he shouldn’t have and possibly his balls back, it looks like the party was a huge hit with kanine and humans alike. I also totally want that little Chihuahua in the red bandana for myself.

Have a great weekend camping! I don’t camp, but I’ll throw dirt in my food and hover over the toilet this weekend to recreate the experience at home. Have fun! :)

Love all of the dogs’ tongues sticking out! Happy birthday, Randy!

Presley @ Run Pretty July 6, 2013 at 12:34 pm

I think you are a better mom to your fur-children than I am to my actual child. haha He’s the cutest dog ever.

Dawn July 6, 2013 at 5:13 pm

Happy Birthday to Randy! I wish we had a doggie daycare that I felt comfortable with to leave my Chihuahua. We don’t go many places because of that reason.

Anna July 6, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Happy Birthday to Randy :”) My dog turns 12 in a month and it’s amazing how time flies. Many more birthdays to him!

andrea July 6, 2013 at 8:29 pm

Happy Birthday Randy!!! This was too cute! What type of dog is Randy?

Janetha July 7, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Basset Hound :)

Kay Lynn July 6, 2013 at 9:52 pm

I have a 6 year old male basset and they’re the best dogs. Congratulations on keeping him trim and happy birthday to Randy!

Janetha July 7, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Thanks! I actually love when people notice how lean he is :)

Nicole @ FruitnFitness July 7, 2013 at 6:06 am

Happy Birthday to Mr. Randy! I hope you guys have a great time camping this weekend!

AHhhhhhh this is so cute!!!!! I LOVE IT!!! Your doggie daycare is so cool! It looks like my Jackson is there too. :)

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish July 9, 2013 at 12:44 am

Randy’s doggy party at Desert Dog Daycare is too stinking cute – especially the hats…and the lei’s…and that paw cake! Adorable. So glad the pups had a ruff-roaring (heh, couldn’t help it) good time! xoxo

ali moll July 9, 2013 at 10:31 am

I love this! And I love the pic of Randy with his tongue out! :)
