Well this weekend is Father’s Day, which also means Charlie is 2! Since I can’t remember the exact date my dog was born – I just remember it was around father’s day, so this weekend is his birthday, either day will do….
I took Charlie and Phoebe (a dog we were babysitting for the weekend) into the studio – that’s right Chasing Charlie now has an official place to meet you all at! – for a few shots of them looking particularly pathetic in birthday hats. Charlie always looks pathetic when dressed up, mostly because I am pretty sure he hates every moment of it. I am also not sure that wearing a party hat was the activity he would have planned to commemorate his birthday, but he had a fun filled weekend with Phoebe, so it wasn’t all torture. I further tortured Charlie with an enticing cupcake that he was not allowed to eat ….. I am really failing at this dog birthday thing……
Phoebe also just turned 1 (I think it was last week) so I took some of her too. Though she was a bit more opinionated about wearing a hat and didn’t just suffer through it, she actively fought against it and then started eating her hat (no hat was actually ingested).
The one trick that my dog does know for birthdays is how to sing happy birthday. The video of us singing to him is coming soon, but until then enjoy this video of him singing happy birthday to Kevin with me.
