5 Ways to Celebrate a Puppy's First Birthday | Photo Canvas Giveaway

I received a free photo canvas from my friends at Canvas Factory. All opinions are mine.

We're over the moon at the first anniversary of our sweet Rosie's year on earth. Of course, we only met when she was 8 weeks old, but the last 10 months have been heavenly! As a family that never lets a celebration slip our grip, we've been planning a few ways to commemorate Rosie's first year. 

Here are my top 5 ways to celebrate a puppy's first birthday. I'm also thrilled to be partnering with Canvas Factory, which makes creating photo canvases a breeze. It took me all of 5 minutes to create the canvas of Rosie you'll see below. The photo canvas shipped within a day and was in hand at the end of the week.

All of these smooth steps really help make the celebration fun and stress-free! I'm excited to give this photo canvas to my daughter as a gift for taking such good care of her pup. I have been so happy with the responsibilities that our kids have taken on to help our family thrive with a pet. Are you considering getting a family dog? Here's some data to help you decide. It's from the team at Working Mother who know a thing or three about optimizing family life!

Commemorate the Year In Pictures 

Schedule a mini photo session with a family and animal photographer. Most mini sessions are quite affordable. Turn those one of a kind photos into a wall canvas to enjoy all year.

Do like I did and present the photo canvas to your family and place it in a common area of the home for all to enjoy.

Send Birthday Wishes

No matter how your puppy arrived in your life, there's someone you can thank for the introduction. Whether an animal shelter, breeder, or good friend, find a way to send your gratitude. Create a photo card of your one year old pup to send in the mail or email an animated card. 

Make Sweet Treats

Give your pup the gift of delicious food when you make a homemade gluten free treat that's good for her tummy. Try my peanut butter pumpkin dog treats or mix up your own.

There are so many easy ways to treat pup! Try a scoop of peanut butter on a spoon and let him enjoy that challenge.

Life of Adventure

Enjoy the great outdoors and let your pup feel the wind in her fur. Take the birthday pup on a hike in the woods, dog park or a long walk in your neighborhood. There's no substitute for the nap that follows a good bit of exercise with her best friend - you!

Host a Puppy Party

Invite a few of your friends and neighbors over with their four-legged friend and let the gang romp in the back yard. If you don't have puppy friends, invite these little inflatable fellows over for a fiesta!

You'll follow the prompts in the bottom right to continue. Next, you'll select your wrap style. Because I wanted to coordinate my photo canvas with my daughter's bedroom where this print will hang, I chose the colored wrap option.

I chose a bright pink to coordinate with my daughter's typically girls room full of pink, purple and aqua hues.
