I know two adorable King Charles Spaniels that were fit to be Queens this past Thanksgiving weekend as everyone in Branson, Mo. joined together to wish them a very Happy 2nd Birthday. As usual, at the stroke of noon, they made their way down the promenade with one of their dog handlers, Kelly Riley, and Jaynee, the First Class Maid. They were wheeled down in a baby carriage to their station in front of a gathering crowd. Only this time, they adorned custom made birthday hats.
Not only did Molly and Carter enjoy a birthday cake made with peanut butter, cream cheese, other dog friendly ingredients, but they also received gifts, balloons, and many birthday wishes. Of coarse, my family was on board during their celebration. I even invited my Mom and Dad who sang Happy Birthday and said that Molly and Carter were the cutest dogs they had ever seen and were “so well behaved”!
The dogs are part of the Titanic Museum Attraction’s tribute to the ten known dogs that were onboard the Titanic. As part of this tribute, the museum has started a program called Save Our Strays, or S.O.S. which raises money for the local humane society. I believe they have raised over $75,000 so far. What a blessing this is to our community!
If you go on Molly and Carter’s web page you can sign up for the dogs to send you a electronic Christmas card. I know my boys are looking forward to receiving it!
