Marvin, one of Waggit’s first dogs, celebrated his 1st birthday! So, does that make him 7 years or 1 year old? Tough call. Hmmmmm.
We’re not sure of the exact date when this Indian Mongral pup came into the world, but we know his birthday is around August of September. So, as an excuse to meet other cool dog folks that are interested in setting up play dates, we got a few Brooklynites to come out and give Marvin some birthday belly rubs.
During off-leash hours on a breezy Saturday morning, treats for humans and dogs were enjoyed by the Dog Beach at Prospect Park. While dogs were splashing in the water, new friends were able to get to know each other, dote on each others dogs and take in one of the last warm Saturdays of the year. We lucked out by ending the party right before a massive rainstorm! There was even a tornado touch down later that morning.
Towards the end of the party, it was hilarious to see Marvin’s birthday bone sneakily snatched right from under him by another dog.
The peanut butter based birthday bone was purchased from Zoomies in the West Village. With the exception of a few Canadian collars, this adorable pet store only carries products that were made in the U.S. (with the exception of a few collars that are from Canada). All their food is organic with ingredients grown in the U.S. The nice lady behind the counter, Nayah, was super friendly and totally sold me being a returning customer. Oh, and their resident Yorkie is friendly and very well behaved 😉
Waggit‘s on a mission to make it easier to have a dog in New York by providing a real and vibrant dog community. So regardless if it’s a birthday party, a fundraiser or casual conversations at a street corner, our goal is to bring people together through the power of dogs. We’re passionate about people helping people and being good to our dogs. For what dogs give to us, we ought to give to others.
