Molly's 2nd Birthday

Back on St. Patrick's Day, our puppy Molly turned two years old! (I guess technically she's not a puppy anymore...but I have a feeling we will always call her that!) Bo was out of town for a bachelor party, so Molly and I had the whole weekend to hang out together. I took her over to the Piedmont Park dog park, but she really isn't a big fan of it. She gets really shy when there are more than 2-3 dogs around, so she mostly just stands there and stares at me. Which entirely defeats the purpose, so we don't go very often.






I think the main reason she doesn't like that dog park is because it doesn't have grass. And she's a pretty big grass snob - so we hung out in the regular park for a while, which she likes a lot better. Such a high maintenance dog. She definitely gets that from Bo ;)




When we got home, she waited ever so patiently to get all her gifts...



hmm what else ya got??





Just like last year, I baked her a birthday cake! I used Kristin's recipe again, but this time used frozen green beans to decorate. I still think it looks gross (mainly because I hate cottage cheese), but the batter is actually pretty good.




I even let her lick the spoon and the spatula for the occasion.





Lesson learned from last year...I sliced up the cake and gave her a piece every night, instead of letting her attack the whole thing at once :)  She loved it! Licked the plate clean. And the floors.




YUM


And then she promptly passed out. Birthday #2 was a success!


Happy Birthday, Molly - we love you!!

    1. Ugh, I know - definitely the grossest looking cake I've ever made. The things I do for that dog. haha

  4. Happy birthday, Molly! I love that second to last photo you got of her with her licking her lips :) You definitely spoiled her. We didn't actually do anything special for Louie for his birthday, but he gets spoiled regularly so I think it's okay.

    1. She is spoiled for sure - I definitely turned into the crazy dog mom I never thought I would be! :) Not that the pups know any different on their birthdays, I am just a total sucker for any reason to celebrate...anything!

  5. Happy Birthday, Molly! Such a cute puppy! Our puppy turned 1 last month. I should bake her a cake too. We love Piedmont Park. I've passed by the dog park, but have yet to bring my dogs there. I'm so afraid they wouldn't be on their best behavior!!

    1. Aww Happy Birthday to your pup! Dog owners are very understanding, don't be afraid I'm sure they would do great!! Though if you really are concerned I would say maybe not on a weekend the first time, it can get pretty crowded and overwhelming (at least for me and Molly!)

  6. Aw, your pup is adorable! I've not taken my pup to the dog park at Piedmont yet, but we sometimes go to Brook Run all the way up in Dunwoody. Nicely wooded so it never gets too hot, but no grass. My pup can certainly always find the one mud puddle though.

    1. I've never been there - thanks for the recommendation, we'll have to check it out! And hopefully stay away from that mud puddle :)
