North's sixth birthday is Friday and I've been deliberating about his party for weeks! Although I love lavishing him with presents all the time – that he loooooves ripping open – he last partied it up big time on his very first birthday.

Since I'm no stranger to helping friends with their doggies and cats, I'll be sharing my pet birthday ideas in a series this week. Before I get started, I'm curious to hear your words of wisdom if you've ever thrown (or attended) a party for your furry friends?
