Jeffie's Birthday Party

April 2013 - a month long gala celebration of Jeffie's 7th birthday!

A party this big takes a lot of planning.  Rosie was in charge of invitations.
Rudy and Skeeter kept an eye out for guests.

 The guests began arriving and Jeffie was thrilled!

To get things started, Jeffie hosted a giveaway: Skinneeez Big Bite dog toy plus Monkey Earrings from For Love of a Dog!  Jodi and her fur babies, Sampson and Delilah, of Heart Like a Dog, were the lucky winners.

We celebrated with some Jeffie puppy pictures, a Shelter Dog Song music video and some homeless dogs from Dogwood, the same shelter where Jeffie used to live during the first week of Jeffie's party.  Plus, we explained why Jeffie was a Cush Dog.

Rudy may have had a bit too much punch at the party.  Jeffie swears the punch was not spiked!  However, Rita was there, so... I bet it was spiked!

The party continued with more dog treats!  This time the giveaway for for some KONG Jerky Treats.  Yum!  The lucky winners were Gizmo, Penelope, and Crystal Rose.

After we sang along to The Animal Rescue Song, and shared tripawd Mandela's story, the adoptable dog from Stray Rescue, we had to have another giveaway!  After all, what's a party without lots of treats!  The Good Dog Take Outs giveaway was really yummy since there were 6 winners:  Bren, Kate, Dogmama, Shelbie, Jackie and Sharon.  The lucky dogs:  Bella, Skipper, Schooner, Rita, HufflePup, Titan!

The Talking Dogs were in full party mode by now ...

And ready for another giveaway!  This time it was a Dog Mom bracelet from For Love of a Dog!  Rafflecopter chose the winner at random and Theresa S won.  Congratulations, Theresa!

Next up was a party game!  The answers to the All About Jeffie Quiz were hilarious!  The winner of the random drawing won some For Love of a Dog earrings!  Congratulations go to Ann at Pawsitively Pets!   Since Chris at Saved By Dogs had the most answers correct, Jeffie insisted that she receive some dog lover earrings, too!

You should have entered Jeffie's Birthday Party Photo Contest!  As you can see below, it was a lot of fun.  The winner of the random drawing for a $25 gift card was Jodi at Heart Like a Dog.  However, Jodi declined the prize, noting that she'd already won the monkey giveaway and wanted to pay it forward.  So, thanks to Jodi's generosity, congratulations go to Christine and Granite!

Look who's at Jeffie's party!

 Gracie and Cider came to the party from Kelly's Pet Salon in Michigan.

Oz the Terrier

Happy Birthday to Jeffie the Retriever mix!
He turned seven this month, not six.
Though he hates change of any kind,
being one year older he doesn't mind
as he knows an old dog can still learn new tricks.
