Happy (belated) birthday to Murphy! Our little puglet turned 7 years old the other day and, of course, we needed to celebrate.
Before he even knew the plan, Murphy was already super pumped for a “ride in the car.”
We picked up Quinn early from daycare and then drove to Hingham.
We met Dada there and then walked over to Maggie’s Dog House for Murphy’s birthday surprise.
Remember Murphy’s Subaru adventure that was filmed at Maggie’s? If you haven’t watched this video yet, definitely check it out. It’s one of my favorite CNC projects to date. And, fun fact, Quinn was there for it too! I was nearly 3 months pregnant with him when it was filmed.
Back to our pug birthday adventures…
Q-Man was immediately drawn to the dog cookies at Maggie’s. They were so adorable and delicious-looking… even I wanted one!
I explained to Quinn that the cookies were dog cookies for Murphy, but I’m not sure he completely understood. Even still, he enjoyed selecting which cookies to buy. Donut cookie? Obviously.
Meanwhile, Murphy scoped out the other snack options in the store. Typical pug.
Once we purchased Murphy’s birthday treats, we headed home to give them to him.
At first, Quinn really liked telling Murphy to “sit” before giving him a cookie.
But when we went to feed Murphy a second cookie, Quinn really wanted to eat it himself. I tried to explain the difference between dog cookies and kid cookies, but he just didn’t get it and broke down crying huge alligator tears. Poor sweet boy. I felt so bad.
Thankfully, Grandma had given Quinn a couple of similar-looking owl sugar cookies for his pizza- and bird-themed party, so I gave him part of one to stop his tears.
All better. Grandma’s cookies save the day!
Happy birthday, Murphy!
