It's on a daily basis that my little French bulldog Cash puts a big smile on my face, and warms my heart. Ever since my husband and I brought him home to join our little family he has been such a joy to have around, and I couldn't imagine what it would be like not to! So it makes me feel just a tad guilty, when this morning while going through his little vet book to see when he was due for his next shots, I saw that I missed his birthday this month! I know... what kind of mommy am I? It was on the 2nd of September, so I am officially really, REALLY late.
Since he is on a raw food diet (which has done wonders for his coat- he doesn't shed at all! And not to mention, it has put a stop to all, ahem, gas... which Frenchies are known for letting out on a regular basis!) I am thinking rather than a birthday cake (who does that anymore) I'm gonna get him a big juicy steak to knaw on tonight...I might just stick a candle in it to make it extra special. In case you were wondering, me being a vegetarian and all- yes, it is VERY hard to bring myself to buy meat for my dog, and even more to watch him eat it (and sometimes regurgitate...yuck.) but it is a far better feeling knowing that the little guy is getting raw, healthy foods rather than the processed dry kibbles that are full of grains, and things that really aren't necessary for a dogs health. You may or may not disagree with me, but if you are an animal lover yourself (a raw food diet does wonders for cats, AND dogs) I'd highly recommend you checking out this website...it won me over! http://www.barfworld.com
Anyways, I didn't mean to turn Cash's birthday announcement into a raw food diet FAQ, so I'll share a few pictures I took this week of the birthday boy himself.
I have to mention, this beautiful woolen jumper is hand-crafted in Wellington New Zealand by the very talented Rachael. Her Etsy store is called "Mr Soft Top" and is full of beautiful hand-knit dog jerseys.
Well, that's all for now...I'm off to give little Cash another cuddle before I head to the office. Happy birthday Cashie!!!
