Often, people don’t truly know their dog’s actual birthday. Whether you rescue or adopt, your pet is most likely your fur baby regardless of where he/she came from. Like you, Joshua John Russel (JJR) and I adore our pets and had to throw a dog party. Completely normal. A while back a friend of mine asked me to make a “gotcha day” banner for her rescue. When I asked her what it meant, she told me it was the celebration of the day she adopted him into her life. I mean, come on… that’s adorable.
