Behind the Scenes at a Basset Birthday Party

   “I, Bentley Basset Hound celebrated my 9th birthday on Saturday, December 3rd. My mom, dad, and Pierre gave me a party. What you might not realize is there ain’t no party like a Basset Hound party! Let me take you behind the scenes at my big bash.
Baked burger with Dr. Harvey's Veg-to-Bowl with bananas are party perfect.
   We started with a delicious dinner of baked hamburger surrounded by Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl with a few bananas added for flair. It was the perfect beginning to the evening. It looked better than what Mom and Dad ate.

   I had to make sure the presents and cookies were all in order. I still acted surprised when I got to the table for the gift-giving excitement. Those cookies had my name written all over them...Birthday Boy!

   It is important to strike a pose while perusing your gifts and birthday cookies so you know exactly what to grab first. Can I reach the cookies?

Security Mom had to stop us from rushing for the toys and treats.
   I may or may not have snatched one entire birthday cookie bone while Mom’s attention was diverted. Good job, Pierre! Note to self: If you find yourself caught with the evidence do not, I repeat, do not release your grip. #NoShame

   After you have wolfed down the majority of the cookie, you’ll need to apologize to your guest. Pierre thought it was funny and made sure to get his fair share of the second cookie.

   I was serenaded with a rousing chorus of ♫ Happy Birthday ♪ from my family. It was a perfect beginning to another fun Basset Hound year!
   I know that I’m a very lucky hound. Not every dog gets to enjoy a birthday party. But, every dog DOES have a chance to win my wooftastic BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY thanks to our awesome sponsors! One lucky reader will be selected to receive prizes from all of these fabulous sponsors. Visit
