Mia is One (or Seven)

I know there are many (most) people that believe dogs are pets and nothing more.  I am not one of these people.  Mia is a dog, but she is also like my child, and I treat her as such.  Enter - Mia's first birthday extravaganza!!  We are very strict about never feeding her human food, so as a treat on her birthday I made her chicken and rice.  This was recommended by the vet when she was a puppy and had an upset stomach.  She really enjoyed it then, so I figured it would be a good treat.  She ate it all up pretty fast!
I also made her some homemade dog treats.  Recipe will be posted tomorrow!  And then might have gone a little too far and made dog friendly frosting and got a candle.  
It is really hard to take a picture of her because she hates the flash, but I snapped a few good ones of the exciting events.  Here she is about to blow out her candle.  She did it all by herself I swear! 
She really liked the dog treats too :)
Opening her gifts.  She really likes to tear paper up, so I had to wrap them for extra birthday fun.
She got some new toys and a new dog bone.
Which she ate in approximately two minutes.
Wrapping paper after the attack of Mia.
Here she is in, what I'm assuming, was a food coma.
Happy 1st (or 7th) birthday Mia!! 

Note: if you feel the need to make a "you need children" comment, please refrain.  My good friends have already let me in on that fact.  Thanks. 


  1. I think it is wonderful that you treat Mia as family. I am the same way. My 2 dogs are my babies and always will be. They love unconditionally.

    1. Such a gorgeous puppy.

      Happy Birthday Mia!

  2. I LOVE IT!!! You don't need kids now, but you'll be a great Mom some day. Mia is lucky!!!
