Harpo turns 4!

harpo's four
We celebrated Harpo's birthday this week, he turned 4 years old on Tuesday, October 26th! (that's 29 in dog years! The formula is: 10.5 dog years per human year for the first 2 years, then 4 dog years per human year for each year after.) I can't believe we've had this little furball for almost 4 years (we got him mid-December the year he was born).

Every year we celebrate by getting him a new collar and doing something special. It was the windiest day EVER on Tuesday so going to a park was pretty much out of the question. We had winds up to 50 mph! Many trees in our neighborhood blown over and lots of wind damage all over the twin cities. SOOO since we couldn't go outside, we decided to take Harpo on a car ride (which he loves!) to Petsmart! He was very excited!

We bought him his new collar and some liver treats. In years past I was ambitious enough to bake him doggie treats, but this year I just didn't make the time.

We put on his new doggie collar

Kyle picked this years collar out. He likes the plain, masculine colored one... where as I prefer the printed, cute ones. (I'll get to pick next year) This year it's black leather with little imprints on it, which you can't really tell. I am having to get used to is as it kinda looks like a shock collar, lol. Very grown up for him :-)

And of course we took some pictures of him in his birthday hat!!!

Although I only have numbers up to 5, so after next year I'm going to have to make the numbers, lol.

Here are posts from his birthday's past:
