12 Months of Buddy

Copy of

Every Christmas, my sister-in-law creates an adorable calendar of my nieces and gifts it to my mom. It’s the cutest thing, and my mom loves it.

So, since I haven’t birthed any children of my own, I opted to make her a 12-month calendar of my fur-child, Buddy.

I decided to go one step further and theme each month. If you’re going to do it, might as well go all-in, right?

Dog calendar January Happy New Year 2019 Dog with hat, dog in snow

Buddy doesn’t care about anything other than being next to his humans. So he’s pretty much up for anything.

Dog calendar 2019 February love hugs and kisses

Are you thinking this is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever seen?


That’s what I was going for. It’s going to get better, or worse, depending on your perspective.

It’s harder than you think to get random holiday headbands and such. Most stores don’t carry St. Patrick’s day items in December. Go figure. I was committed, so I ordered most of it on Amazon.

I assume at this point you’re either laughing, rolling your eyes, or closing out of this article. I hope it’s the first one because I laughed uncontrollably making this calendar, so I can’t apologize.

Aaaaand….nailed all the stereotypes.

Buddy definitely enjoyed being the center of attention.

I had to skip putting July on here, because unfortunately I’ll admit, I put the flag around Buddy. I didn’t realize that was disrespectful until after the fact. So, I digress, and apologize.

Just picture it – it was adorable.

Of course, I had to celebrate Buddy’s adoption anniversary month. That is, after all, the reason I was able to make this calendar in the first place.

Dog calendar, September 2019 Happy Birthday Grandma Dog with birthday gift hat, presents, and balloon background

And since this calendar was made for my mom, I had to highlight her birthday month.

My mom legitimately calls Buddy her “grand-dog”.

So I’m not the only crazy one. Or maybe I get it from her.

I filled the calendar with the main holidays and some random ones.

The Labor Day one shows buddy with a bowl of food-shaped toys and a note that says, “Will work for food”.

Keep judging. I’ll keep laughing.

He loved the costume and wanted to eat the hook.

I found the costume at the dollar store.

You’re welcome.

Thanksgiving, dog calendar 2019 election day, veteran's day, dog with pumpkins with fall leaves, dog dressed as President Trump, Make dogs great again

Listen, I’m not here to argue politics. But even if you aren’t a fan of Trump, you have to admit…it’s hilarious. I laughed so hard taking these ones that I got the hiccups. True story.

And last, but certainly not least, we have the best month ever: DECEMBER!

Fun fact: Christmas, my birthday, and New Years all fall within the same week!

Special shout out to Shutterfly for allowing me to create this masterpiece.

Hope you enjoyed this random blog post. I know I enjoyed making it.
