Scooter's Birthday happened during the redesign so I'm playing a little bit of catch-up on this one, but the pup only turns 12 once! Besides, a light puppy post (he'll always be a puppy to me) is totally acceptable for a Monday right?! Scooter says yes ;-)
This little guy couldn't have had a better birthday celebration out of the city on Long Island! While we certainly got lucky with some outdoor space at our current apartment, he doesn't exactly get to have free-range of a backyard all that often so he's pretty excited when he does.
He got a lot of quality outdoor time in making laps around the pool and yard and rolling around in the grass!
We were also planning on going to a BBQ with Chris' family so Chris had the idea of making a birthday cake for Scooter since we needed to bring something and it was his birthday. Plus, he's been talking about this cake frosting that his grandma used to make for the whole time I've known him but so he kind of tied all those ideas into one.
Scoots was less excited about the pics than the actual cake, but let's just say the little guy got his fair share of table-scraps over the weekend.
Especially at the BBQ! He was on the hunt for anything anyone dropped or that he could put his cute face on and convince someone into giving him something. Who can say no to his little face though? Not me clearly.
It was such a fun weekend and I think Scootie had a really fun time too! He didn't want to come back!
Here's to hopefully many more birthdays with this little guy! :) He's going to keep up with his Scootie sprints so he can try and go for the oldest weenie dog record!
