Happy 3rd Birthday Doc!

Today is Doc's 3rd birthday and of course he needed special birthday treats.

Today is Doc’s 3rd birthday and of course he needed special birthday treats.

We decided one of his special birthday treats would be a Cake Pup from Dogg Candy by Wet Noses.  We forced Doc to wait as we make him get a couple birthday pictures.

Once we opened Doc's Cake Pups he was STOKED!

One big bite and he had it off the stick.  We quickly learned that this is a treat to be eaten outside as when he dropped it on the floor we had a mess, so we quickly took the treat away and made him enjoy it outside.

Doc's favorite toy has always been the little orange and blue Chuck-its.  We decided to get him a giant one.  Oh, the excitement.

Another one of Doc's birthday gifts was a very cute & frightened looking stuffed carrot.

We are glad the carrot started out with the terrified look because less than 5 minutes later Doc had taken it's leaves off...but surprisingly enough he did not wreck it, rip it, or shred it.  Doc seems to LOVE it.
