What I found, instead, was an uplifting tale of a woman who has taken something she would’ve never chosen–losing her job–and turned it into

What? Throw a party for dog birthdays? How crazy is that? I would never! Well, actually, yes, I have. I’ve thrown more than one party for my DarlaDog. Complete with doggie birthday cake.
