I say I will but I don't. I write my pet a little card and then let them do whatever for the rest of the day. I wish, one time I did take my dog to the dog park on his birthday, but he doesn't like touching the ground. Spoiled animal.

I said yes but I don't know if celebrate is the right word. There's no cake or party but I do tell people it's her birthday if they see her and sometimes I remember and get her a new little cat toy.

All my pets have been rescue pets and we don't know their birthdays. When I have a Golden Retriever that we bought from a breeder, though, we celebrated all 14 of his birthdays before he passed away.

I know the month I adopted my dog and I might get her a rawhide or beef knuckle but there are no hats balloons singing or commas.

I might give the cat some extra treats and stuff, but we don't even know when her birthday is. She was a rescue kitten.

Happy Birthday to Beau! My cat just turned 6. I usually say Happy Birthday & give him a new treat or toy. He promptly replies by going back to cleaning himself. :c)

Both my pets just had their 3rd birthday! I would have celebrated if I'd had time.

Sort of..his adoption/rescue day, but nothing huge, just a special treat & a heart to heart.

When my pup turned one, we had a party with his parents and his litter at the dog park. The dogs got new toys and shared a carob cake. Every year since, I got him a new toy or some treats. He's gone now, but he was a special one.

Mr.Fishy may have been dead for years but I still celebrate with a round of Vodka in honor of his...gills... or something. It may just be an excuse to drink...

Yep! We get her a new bag of those chewy sticks. They usually last her the year. She's special to us, so why wouldn't we celebrate it?

We have shelter pets whose birthdays (and age) are unknown. They just get spoiled on a daily basis instead.

My dog's birthday is like a week before my dad's. We just celebrate them both on his bday. Get her a new toy or collar, some special treats, etc. We show her how much we love her.

I grew up in a family that had pets and we understood that they were pets not people. I loved them all dearly but we never saw the need to celebrate their birthdays. Even now my pets don't get frivolous presents.

Kinda. We give her a new bone in January for her "birthday". We know she was born in January that's it.

You gotta atheist get them a big bone or something. Pets are only pets if included with Family. Each dog usually gets a small steak or bone for Christmas too.

My dog has the same birthday as me, so it's a dual celebration. I just give him an extra treat or a new ball or something.

Yes! I rented out a ball-field and a pavilion, made invitations, and we had about 50 friends and their dogs show up for my Old English Sheepdog's 1st Bday party last summer. It was a lot of fun. Her 2nd is on 8/1, just a small celebration this year.

Sort of. Since we don't know when their real birthdays are, we set them all as May 1st (it's easy to remember). We acknowledge it, and we might get them a present, but we don't throw any parties.

My dog's birthday is May 23, and she accepts anything edible, tennis balls, squeaky toys etc. Just in case y'all were wondering. ;)
For her 3rd/21st birthday, we took her to the bar for a beer float.

Wouldn't you have to celebrate every 52 days, as dogs age 7 years to one human year??? Just wondering...

Yes! We get kid-size plain cheeseburgers for them on their birthday. It's for *us*, not them, to celebrate the joy they bring to our life everyday of the year.

Our 2 Pomeranians are rescues that we brought home on same day. We celebrate the day we brought them into our lives the same way.
