This past week was my dog’s sixth birthday – or really, the third anniversary of the day I adopted her. Call me a big ol’ anthropomorphizing birthday-loving dork, but it was a special milestone for me – I’ve now had Charlotte for half her life. I’ve officially had her the longest of anyone (though I’ve always been the person who’s loved her most). : )

I wanted to honor Charlotte’s big day a little, so here are my favorite choices for a pup-tacular birthday:

1. Bronze dog tag by The Copper Poppy – Charlotte’s ID tag came from this shop. It’s lovely!

2. Squirrel toy by Scrivener’s Retreat

3. Doggie donuts by Shorty’s Gourmet Treats

4. Sparkle collar by r.e. stowe – The only place where I buy collars, on Etsy or off. And this sparkly one is extra-fabulous!

Stay tuned for tomorrow, because Charlotte has a birthday surprise for all of you (she’s really quite good in Illustrator). ; )
