Turning a year older never seems to get easier, but we have the ultimutt solution for those feelings of dread: pictures of dogs celebrating their birthdays. Dogs don’t care if the party means they’re getting older because they’re just excited for cake, treats, and belly rubs! Plus, they realize they’re just getting more fetching with age, which is true for all of us. Whether it’s your special day or you’re celebrating a fellow dog-lover, share one of these wagtastic “Happy Birthday” dog images with a fun message to let the birthday person know age is nothing but a ruff estimate.
