What COVID-19 crisis? Dogs have birthday blast

Humans might be doing it a bit rough right now, but for a group of four-legged pals it was their time to celebrate.

The hounds at Allsorts Pet Hub, Currajong, were thrown a party yesterday to celebrate the birthday of regular client Roughy, who turned three.

The groodle and his mates were treated to a homemade dog-friendly cake, and the celebrations continued well into the afternoon with some high-energy playtime, including pool time and rolling around in the sandbox.

Allsorts staff member Grace Mitchell said pet birthday parties were surging in popularity.

'We're having another one on Monday and it's always awesome, they absolutely love it," she said.

"They might not know it's a birthday, but they definitely realise it's all about them and they feed off the excitement.

"It's really special that people are treating their pets like this and I think it goes to show that our pets are no longer just pets, they're members of the family."
