Sookie’s birthday is a big deal for me and we have our own little tradition. Every year, I do the following:
- I get Sookie a special treat.
- We take a bunch of photos to find the perfect one for that Insta post. (You all know how it goes.)
- And last but not least, I sing Happy Birthday to her, unable to finish because my sobbing gets in the way. 😭
Yesterday was Sookie’s birthday; she turned 9 years young. Sadly, this mom right here wasn’t her fully prepared self. You know that saying “Life Happens”…well, life is definitely happening. I’m not going to bore you with all the details because that’s not the main point of this story, but the truth is I felt very disappointed with myself.
I had a really busy day at work, with no time to sneak out for a second and get Sookie her special treat. That’s when I remembered there’s a company in Austin that delivers dog treats! 💖(Gotta love Austin!) I immediately got to their website and started looking for the perfect gift for my baby. And there it was… the “MY.DOG.IS.MAJESTIC.AF” box. C’mon! Are you kidding me?! This was definitely made for Sookie!!! So I added it to my cart, got my credit card ready, and that’s when I found out the earliest delivery was the next day 🥺 [Insert lame Darth Vader “Nooooo” here]
So what did I do, you may ask? I did what any frantic parent will do. I sent a message on the website begging for help 🙏🏼 I also sent a message to their Facebook page. You know, just in case they missed the other message. I also thought it was a good idea to call their phone number and leave a voicemail. (At this point, I can feel all of you judging me. Flash news! I don’t care. 😝)
One of the messages got through, and I got a call from the wonderful owner of Pawsome Dog Treats. She was so kind and understanding and was able to help me regain my status of Best Dog Mom™⭐️.
Later that day the most magical box of dog treats was delivered to my workplace — unicorn horn included! 🦄 She even added a super sweet handwritten note wishing Sookie a Happy Birthday! 🎈
I want to make this very clear—this is not a sponsored post. I paid for the treats myself. But good friends tell each other when they find something amazing, right? Sharing is carying! 💝 So I felt compelled to share with all my Dog512 Fam, because businesses like this one deserve recognition. Pawsome Dog Treats is not only a local business (support local!), but is one of those businesses that go the extra mile to make their customers feel special and appreciated it.
Oh! and if you’re curious how tasty the treats are, I will let these photos of Sookie and her sister Angel speak from themselves.
Thank you so so much Pawsome Dog Treats for saving the day and making Sookie’s birthday super special and magical 🦄✨⭐️
