Want to do something special for your dog’s birthday this year?
For both of our dogs’ birthdays, we always take them to the local Dairy Queen.
When you tell them at the drive-thru that you want a doggy treat, they give you a small cup of ice cream with a dog treat on top.
We order our ice cream, pay for it, and get our doggy ice creams at the same time.
Our Dairy Queen doesn’t charge extra for the doggy treats — just as long as you are ordering something for yourself. (They need to be able to see that your dog is in the car.)
We don’t make a habit of taking them to Dairy Queen, but for special occasions it’s worth the trip!
Another popular idea is to make a special dog-friendly birthday cake for your dog…
