We decided to skip the birthday hats for our birthday pawty this year – the girls aren’t too nuts about having hats put on them. I wanted to dress the dogs up a bit though, and luckily I had recently won a collar/tie/leash set from B.W. Barkery on Sugar the Golden Retriever’s blog! I picked out something in Luke’s best colors – red and blue.
However, I forgot that even at one year old, Luke is still a puppy, and he still loves to chew on things. He just loved that tie, but I had trouble getting it out of his mouth long enough to get some photos! They also have bow ties so I probably should have gotten one of those. He’ll grow up someday, and in the meantime he still has the matching collar and leash. Thank you to Sugar and B.W. Barkery for helping Luke dress up for his birthday!
In this photo, I thought he looked kind of like a drunk guy at a bar with his tie on sideways!
The girls put on coordinating red bandanas for their dress up:
Cricket is helping her siblings with their gifts…..(come back Friday to see what they got!)
Luke is such a helpful brother…..
We also wanted to share the great birthday cards we received from our friend Jenna at Love is Being Owned By a Husky.
Aren’t those awesome? Thank you, Jenna!!

You all look great in your birthday best. I think Luke is having a sneaky chew on that bandana!
Good eye, Clowie, he sure was!
Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
PS. I’m glad y’all had an awesome birthday weekend! The neckwear is awesome!!
Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
Callie & Shadow have never been fond of hats, either; so after their first birthdays, I didn’t put one on them any more. I’ve never put a hat on Ducky; but after seeing the anxiety in her eyes in the picture from last year’s daycare Halloween costume party, I swore I would never subject her to it again. She’s not going to the party tomorrow for that very reason.
You would think they’d be a little more aware of the dogs’ reactions there? I did elf hats on the dogs one Xmas, and took photos, and then looking at them afterwards felt bad I’d put them through it!
Sorry we missed the party – hope it was a blast!
We’re sorry you did too, it was lots of fun!
Oh I hope he had a marvelous birthday!!! I can’t believe he’s a year old already.
We can’t believe it either. I think the celebration turned out pretty well!
Ann Staub says
I love that tie Luke! It looks great on you! Shiner doesn’t care much for hats either. Neckwear is so much better 😉
It is much easier, and looks just as cute, I think!

A heart breaker in the making…LOL.
So handsome in the tie!
He is our good looking guy! 🙂
Jackie Bouchard says
Cute pics! Love the “drunk” one! I wanna party with that dude! Looks like a fun time was had by all!
It sure was….Luke is definitely a “party animal” – hee hee.
The Island Cats says
Oh Luke! We love your tie!
2 brown dawgs says
LOL the tie was too tempting for Luke! Looks like they had fun!
Everything is potentially a toy when you’re a puppy….even an older puppy!
Luke looks very handsome and mature in his tie!
Thank you! At least he looks mature, it’s not like he acts it very often! BOL
Pamela | Something Wagging This Way Comes says
Does Luke chew on a leash like he chewed on his tie?
Looks like a fun birthday surprise.
Yes, he does chew on the leash, as well as on his harnesses sometimes. But I can at least distract him from that once we get walking! When he was younger, he chewed right through one leash and also a harness. Thicker leashes do OK though, and he’s getting better about it.
Aw! Happy birthday Luke!
Thank you, Kari!
Talent Hounds says
