Rooney’s Birthday Wishes!

Rooney is 6 years old today!

I can’t believe it! When my husband and I adopted him 4.5 years ago, we had no idea time would move so quickly!

In the past, we have had giveaways and parties, but this year we just have a few wishes for Rooney’s birthday:

1. That All Pets are Adopted

This past weekend was Clear the Shelters! Which is a nationwide effort to find as many forever homes as possible for pets still in the shelter. This year, more than 700 shelters participated and over 45,000 pets found homes!

While Clear the Shelters is an excellent and effective initiative, the shelters aren’t quite empty and it would be great if they were! On behalf of Rooney’s birthday, we hope that all pets find a forever home, and soon! 

Here are some of our favorite rescues & shelters in California:

Muttville Senior Dog Rescue

Valley Humane Society

Queen’s Best Stumpy Dog Rescue

Golden Gate Pembroke Welsh Corgi Rescue 

If you have an awesome shelter that you think people should check out, leave their name or link in the comments below.

2. That I (Rooney) Get All the Cake

Let’s be real. It’s Rooney’s birthday, so cake was definitely going to make the list!

Last year, we wrote a post for called 5 Ways to Celebrate Your Dog’s “Gotcha Day” or Birthday, which includes a link to a DIY Dog Birthday Cake Pinterest board in case you are looking for some recipes!

3. That All Lost Dogs Are Found

Lost dogs are an all too common problem, especially in the aftermath of the Fourth of July, which is why July is Pet Loss Prevention Month.

There are things you can do as a pet parent to make sure your pet makes it home if they are lost, like microchipping. Additionally, there are things you can do if you find a stray dog.

Therefore, our wish is that everyone takes all the necessary steps to protect their pets and shares any information they have about getting pets home with their friends and family!

4. That I (Rooney) Continue to Get Daily Belly Rubs

Like most dogs, Rooney loves belly rubs, and I promise to not let a day go by without giving him some belly rubs.

5. That Each Dog Has a Plush Bed to Sleep On

No matter the kind, or shape, Rooney loves dog beds (and couches, and clean laundry, and human beds, but mostly dog beds)!

And he would love for every dog to have the best dog bed! Therefore, if you know a dog who needs a bed, like maybe one waiting for their forever home, don’t forget to donate your gently used dog beds to the rescues and shelters.

(Don’t tell Rooney, but we are getting him a new one for his birthday from Pridebites! and donating the existing ones to our local shelter)

What would your dog wish for on their birthday?

    I’ve seen some beautiful pet beds recently for my dog! I think it’s great too that there are more people adopting their pets and an initiative to get them into great homes.
