    I don’t because I usually forget, but I do like to pet them and say happy brithday when I remember!  They don’t know why they are being pet, but they like attention.  I did when I was little however, throw my dog a birthday party…

    I think it is a little weird personally, I think that  birthdays are people things not dog things.

    I think it might be overkill.  We buy our puppy a special treat (a toy, bone, etc.) on his birthday, but that’s it.

    I know they don’t understand it but I try to do something nice for my cats anyway. I don’t schedule vet or grooming appts on that day, I sing them the birthday song and do an extra play session. I also commemerate the day my previous cat passed away, which incidentally happens to be Halloween 🙁 I bypass the parties and costumes and just stay at home and remember him.

    I usually celebrate my three cats birthdays which I guess (I adopted them w/o their actual birthdays known) with their favorite wet food and some treats!

    We celebrate our kittys bday by getting him some treats and a few new toys. I dont know that I would ever throw a party but if you want to, go for it. It’s certainly different!

    @beekiss2: I also made up a birthday for our shelter baby. We celebrate the day we adopted her.

    I like the idea of a little doggy birthday party with some treats and a play date with puppy friends!  But I’ve never done it.  We do get Daisy a special treat and we’ll take her out to Petco or something (one year they sent us a coupon for a free birthday treat and we took her).  She was born at the shelter when her momma dog was dumped there, so they knew her birthday luckily!

    We’re totally doing a party for our baby – there are several bakeries around here that do doggie cakes and we’ll get together with my boss and her dogs and let them have a silly play date with lots of treats.  We’ll probably only do this for her first birthday, but still, I’m so happy to have her here that I’m going all out for the first one!

    c’mon, how could you NOT throw a party for a furball this cute??

    Yep, I like to celebrate my pup’s b-day. We usually get him a toy or something.

    @meliss:  I guessed my babies’ birthdays based on the estimated age the vet gave me when I took them to their first appointments then subtracted it.  I try to make it the 5th of the Month so it’s easier for me to remember.  Cisco is cinco de mayo baby, Tux is August 5th (day after Fi’s birthday), and Firefox is September 5th.

    I confidentally say I would never throw a birthday party for an animal. Now, I am crazy in love with my cat and prance around on his birthday wishing him a “happy birthday”, but there is no party/treats/presents involved. Wink
