Abandoned Shelter Dog Refused to Give Up Hope and Is Loving His New Forever Home

Would You Feel Guilty Leaving a Pet on His Birthday?

North celebrated his very special day on Saturday without one very special guest: me. Even though I whipped up that seven layer snack to honor his seventh birthday early, I still felt guilty leaving my number one (and only) pooch behind! Granted I did so in order to see my own dad for Father's Day — and picked up an amazing number of pressies for my pup in NYC — has anyone else left a pet on his birthday, either just for a couple hours or the entire day?

Well, we took Basil in for major abdominal surgery on his 2nd birthday, and I felt really guilty about that. :(

That is a really cute picture! ... since all of our cats are rescues, we don't know what their birthdays are. Plus, they are happier when we're not home and they can sleep all day... it's a good life !

Last year I was at a conference out of town on Robbie's birthday, but I left her with my mom along with specific instructions to give her as many treats as she wanted :) I still felt terrible though!
