How do you celebrate Birthdays?

How do you celebrate your B's Birthday? I try to ignore my own, but... I thought it might be fun to hear how we celebrate our dogs birthdays (or gotchya days).

@elbrant Depends when it is, most are born in winter so we have steak. My current B has a birthday in August, so we have “steak and shake” in the park (lol) it’s a tradition.

A nice walk in the sunny park followed by some fillet mignon, medium rare.

Although the dogs always look for the steak for the next two weeks walks lol.

Kembe’s birthday is January 4th - I grill her a small steak!

After the tasty steak - mine goes back to kibble/ dog food! Lol 😝

Whatever it is they're particularly fond of. Filet mignon and mashed potatoes usually work. So a second filet mignon vote! (I'm not a big fan of filet mignon -- never make it and can't remember ever ordering it when eating out -- but once my wife came home with a doggie box of filet mignon and the doggies went crazy. So we knew it would be a hit.)

I celebrate by telling them they can live here another year!


“I celebrate by telling them they can live here another year”


My wife tells me every day is their damn birthday lol. She has a point but they don’t get steak very often.

Lots of steak in this crowd! LOL I just love a good steak, but.... I always save a bit for doodle.

@elbrant Mine prefer the best but it is expensive. Having said that they have all had ribeye, t-bone, shaved steak, NY strip etc. One thing that’s important is that it must be slow cooked so they can absorb the smell for a while. Christmas turkey is always a challenge as it’s four hours of hell before we eat lol.

Usually the next day I get that look of disgust that says “ oh my god....he’s trying to feed me dog food!” When they get their regular food again.
