Dog Pawty for Pixel

Happy Birthday Pixel!  Today Pixel from A Pair of Pears turns one.  On Sunday he had an awesome birthday party and I’m thrilled to share some of it with you!


From Jamie:  “Today is the day our little guy was born. What an amazing year it’s been! We love Pixel so much, and are so happy he’s in our life.  We have loved watching him grow. It’s hard to believe how little he used to be, but he is still as cuddly as ever. Size doesn’t matter to him (or us).”

Jake and Jamie Bartlett are graphic artists who specialize in branding and custom paper goods.  I’m so impressed with the details of this dog birthday pawty!

One of the genius things that Jake and Jamie did during the first year of Pixel’s life was taking a photo every month,  in the same chair (which received a fabulous makeover) and the same bowtie to really emphasize how much he has grown.

This is Pixel at 8 weeks and then at one year of age.  Check out all his watch me grow photos on A Pair of Pears blog.

Very cute; and I always love a doggy DIY project! I especially love the closing images with the sided by side portraits of Pixel as a puppy and then all grown up on the same chair. Super adorable!

Oh my gosh, this is so adorable! I love the name Pixel for a dalmatian. Thank you for sharing this cute DIY, too!

I love the last photo with the growth comparison on the same chair and with the same outfit! So precious.
