Mo's Adoption Day Party ~ 4 Years

Hi! Some pics from Mo's party this weekend. He was a very good boy and we all had fun. The birthday box from Chewy.com was great, fun and a good value.

Mo's birthday is actually in March, and of course he got prezzies then too, but we make a big deal of our pets' adoption days always. Mo's arrival was especially exciting because we had looked for a reputable breeder of quality pugs for more than a year, after trying for years to  find a rescue pug. Mo was purchased before he was born; we then had the fun of waiting for his birth. We had the pick of the litter, though of course they were all adorable. Mo was finally chosen! The breeder taught him his name and gave him his own little bed so he'd feel safe once separated from the other puppies and his mommy. We had to wait 10 weeks til Mo was old enough to travel from California to New York. He arrived via a special flight to JFK on June 8, 2014. He peeked out of his travel crate and we all fell in love. He only weighed seven pounds!

Now he rules the house, aka, Mo World.

Mo loves these Meatballs!

New vestie in tie dye aqua and lime green.

 Toy cake, great squeaker!

Vestie is an XL, sigh. He no longer weighs just seven pounds.


 Party hat!

 Maybe Mo got a little overexcited?

 We had fun!

  3. So cute! I've used Chewy for a while now, since you mentioned it to me, but I've never gotten a birthday box. Is that something you have to order?

    Glad Mo enjoyed his celebration day!

    1. You do have to order the boxes, they are 19.95 but seem worth it, lots of fun and a good value. Here is the kitty one:https://www.chewy.com/goody-box-happy-birthday-cats/dp/167997 They also have other version, like not birthday, made in USA etc. Mo liked everything was okay with the hat...the toys were too big tho.

      And he's afraid of the ball toy , I put it away to share w another doggy friend. But it was fun and silly , I loved it.

  4. Thanks for inviting us to the party! (You party animals, you!)

    It looks like a good time was had by all and sundry!

    He was cute once upon a time, now he's the epitome of handsome (and looks so dapper in his hats and vests)!

    Such fun photos and an awesome celebration!

    1. [WE think he is still pretty cute!]...The link for the doggy treat boxes is Here in case you want to get one sometime. It's plenty for two doggs to share, tho one will be hatless. Will your doggies wear hats etc? There are five versions of goody boxes.

  5. Such festive fun. What a blast. That is one party pug - I can't stop smiling! Penny

  6. What a wonderful way to celebrate!

  7. A party animal in a good way! A bundle of love arrived to you four years ago. Blessings.

  8. Oh....he is just so adorable!

  9. Happy Mo-naversary! What a great story. I am glad you got him, he is such a part of your life. I love the birthday box. So cool! :) Kit

  10. OMG! He literally could not be cuter! Love the pics of him with his party hat.

    You're all very fortunate to have each other :)
