How do you celebrate your dog's birthday?
If you're anything like a lot of our Long Island readers, Fido's birthday is up there as one of the most important holidays of the year. So why keep all the fun to yourself?
From bone-shaped dog cakes to puppy birthday hats to presents and treats galore, we want to see it all.
Let us join the party: Share your dog's birthday party photos here.
Just make sure your pooch is looking his or her birthday best -- or you could be in the doghouse!
