It’s my dog’s fourth birthday!
I can’t believe my little angel has been in my life for almost four years. I got Chips when I was just 20 years old – a sophomore in college, right before summer break.
My friends and family advised me against getting a pup while being a full-time student. They were worried that I was too young to take care of another being. They said that my schedule would be too much on top of caring for a pup.
It turns out, getting a dog while in school was a great decision. I lived near campus and was able to come home in between classes to take her out for walks. She was never left alone for more than a couple hours, and once summer break hit, I Doordashed part time and was able to create my schedule around her needs. I now have friends that really wish they could get a pup, but don’t have time with their full-time work schedule to train it.
Every year since bringing Chips into my life, I’ve celebrated her birthday and done something special for her. I look forward to giving her a special treat.
This year, we took a trip to our favorite neighborhood pet store, Pet Supplies Plus. If you’re a pet parent and you haven’t been yet, I would highly recommend it. They have hundreds of locations throughout the country and we got so many goodies for Chips’ birthday!
For just a few dollars, we were able to grab her some bagel shaped biscuits, a couple Pigs’ Ears, and a huge bone. She was happy as a clam when we got home.
The staff was so attentive and helpful in answering any questions we had, and they were totally accommodating during our little photoshoot.
If you’re a pet parent and want convenience and a huge selection at great prices, this is the place to go!
Happy Birthday, Chips!
