Victory: A Birthday Celebration — 6 years!
On October 12 it marked four years since we adopted our dear little Victory! We decided to make October 12 Victory’s birthday — the day we went to Michigan and adopted our sweet fur girl.
We recently celebrated Victory’s birthday marking her four years with us since her adoption! This year, for Victory’s birthday, we did a gold, white/ivory, with a splash of champagne in honor of Victory’s beautiful fur coat! (As shown below, last year, we did a light pink and gold themed birthday; two years ago we did a pink themed birthday; and three years ago, we did rainbow themed birthday for Victory!) We purchased some fun gold and white/ivory themed decorations, balloons, confetti, party hat, and new ivory sweater for Victory in honor of her birthday! Victory also enjoyed prime rib and smoked turkey in lieu of birthday cake, which she gobbled down in no time flat! Victory looked absolutely adorable on her birthday, as always, shown below! (She is always so cooperative with my ideas, and Doug blew up every single balloon and helped to keep Victory’s attention during the photos!) She had a fun birthday and she enjoyed being over fed along with a trip to the Eastern Shore for crabs! We are the lucky ones to share our lives with this wonderful, loyal, and loving being.
For Victory’s birthday, we gave her a new: ivory sweater; a custom, handmade ceramic dog water bowl; an Orvis embroidered name blanket; a Jax and Bones rope toy; and a Ware of the Dog toy! Victory also received, for her birthday, a water rover and a gift card from her Grandma and Grandpa Carver! We all had a great day together!

A look back at Victory’s birthday time over the years…
If you are considering getting a dog, I hope that you consider adopting a rescue dog. There are so many dogs in need of a good, loving home. As shown below, Victory, a rescue, has changed so much physically and emotionally over the years since we adopted her, pictured on the left (image from Victory’s foster mom via the Michigan Sheltie Rescue). You really can save a dog’s life, while simultaneously enriching your own life/lives.
