Like 10 million Americans, we are dog lovers that celebrate our dog’s birthday. Because of that, I’ve created a new business called Pawsome Doggie. It’s an online shop selling awesome dog party supplies.
Since adopting our first rescue dog in 2002, Buffy, a golden retriever-beagle-cocker spaniel mix (left), who joined our family when he was four years old, we looked forward to celebrating Buffy’s birthday every March 1st. Our daughters especially looked forward to wishing Buffy happy birthday and always made sure to give him extra treats on his special day.
We were lucky enough to celebrate Buffy’s birthday up through 2013. However, the whole time that Buffy was a part of our family, we never were able to find just the right way to celebrate our dog’s birthday.
Currently, we have two rescues–Oscar, a Catahoula Leopard Dog/shepherd mix, and Sadie, a coonhound/Pekingese mix (right). They joined our family when they were 3 and 1, respectively. Oscar and Sadie’s birthdays are in March and May. This will be the first year we’ll be celebrating their birthdays with both of them members of our family (long story short, Oscar joined our family less than a year ago whereas we’ve had Sadie since 2013).
Now that we’ve got two dog birthdays to plan each year, we didn’t want to face the same problem as with Buffy–finding the perfect dog party supplies. That’s why we started Pawsome Doggie. We wanted to share with other dog families these awesome supplies for making your dog a bone shaped cake, using a dog safe birthday cake recipe, and decorating that birthday cake with dog bone shaped candles, among other items to round out a dog party.
It is also our hope that as Pawsome Doggie gets off the ground, we’ll be able to partner with animal rescue organizations and share some of the profits with those good causes–without which we never would have been able to adopt Buffy, Oscar or Sadie. At the same time, we’ll be featuring those rescue groups right here. If you have a rescue to nominate, please use our contact form.
Because you’ve been a loyal Suddenly Frugal fan, I’ve created a special coupon code so that you can save 10% on your first order. Just used the code FRUGAL10.
I hope you enjoying shopping on Pawsome Doggie and will tell your dog-loving friends and family about us.
