Jessie & Jake Wish Memphis A Happy 1st Birthday With The Help Of SendOutCards

As is indicated in my "about me" paragraph at the top of my blog page, my husband Peter and I have two puppy dogs - Jessie and Jake who are Kelpie/Cattle Crosses. We love our puppies a whole lot and they are, in essence, our 4 legged children. Peter has a gorgeous daughter, my step-daughter; but we do not have any children of our own (not by choice per se); however, I do not want to get off topic.  I have written about the puppies in the past and some of the challenges we have had; e.g. neighbours complaining about them barking and finding rental properties that are pet friendly and adjusting to our dogs being outdoor pets.

Although my puppies will always be my favourites, I love most any dog and a lot of animals; e.g. cats and horses and I came across a couple who live in Michigan, USA who have Siberian Huskies and they share their lives with their puppies via various social media networks - YouTube and Facebook just to list a couple.

I started to follow them over a year ago I believe and they lost their eldest puppy Shiloh in Jan 2013. Shiloh was gorgeous and she was the eldest in their pack of 3. Last year Jessica and Jamie decided to increase their pack size to 3 again and acquired an adorable girl Memphis who just turned 1 on the 4th of April. Because I appreciate the time and effort and smiles and laughter the whole pack bring to me (& even Peter sometimes), Jessie and Jake and I decided to create a special birthday card and video for Memphis's 1st Birthday and used the helpful online service of SendOutCards to make it happen, complete with a tasty gift of dog treats for Memphis to share with her siblings, Shelby and Oakley.

The Siberian Huskies are called Gone To The Snow Dogs and you can view them on their YouTube channel and in the about section when watching a video, click more and it lists all of the other websites they have up and running, too; including a channel Without The Snow Dogs.

They posted a video of Memphis opening up her presents on her birthday and Jessie and Jake's gift arrived in time to make the video and if you do not wish to view the whole video, you can go directly to 3 minutes 10 seconds that shows the card and gift.

Happy watching and Gone To The Snow Dogs were pretty happy to have reached 50,000 subscribers on YouTube just  prior to Memphis's 1st Birthday - How cool is that?

If you are a pet owner and reading this blog article, make sure that you give your pets an extra hug today and let them know how much you appreciate them; after all, they give their unconditional love to us daily, an analogy of God's love to us!
