13-Year-Old Senior Dog Couldn’t Believe His Family Remembered His Birthday

Birthdays come and go year after year, and Bailey has seen many of them in his long, happy life. But not even the passing of time can diminish the joy his family feels at having him around — if anything, it’s only made their love grow stronger.

Meet Bailey, the senior doggo who just celebrated his 13th birthday & was super excited about it

A few weeks ago, Bailey turned 13 years old, but despite already seeing 12 birthdays come and go, when watching the excitement he gets from celebrating, one could easily mistake it to be his first.

Though the special day could have easily passed without much mention, his family felt that his big day was more than worth celebrating.

To mark the occasion, they gathered together to throw Bailey a party — much to the little dog’s surprise and delight.

For those wondering what Bailey got for his birthday (apart from the cake), it was a hot-dog chew toy, as seen in one of the photos included in this article. That smile says it all, folks!

For Bailey’s family, the adorable gesture that day seemed a way of returning to him an extra portion of the happiness he’s given them all his life. The little dog deserves nothing less.

“Happy 13th birthday to our boy BAILEY!” his family wrote. “He brings us so much joy and we love him heaps!”

There is no question that Bailey enjoyed having cake and presents on his special day, but more than anything, we’re pretty sure that he enjoyed having all the people he loves surrounding him and fawning over him on his special day.

Happy birthday Bailey!
