Odin is a little dog with tiny paws, ears, and a tiny tail that wags when he’s happy. Odin was recently everything from little, though, on the little dog’s special day.
Odin lives in Mexico with Joyce Cetina and her family. Each and every day since the family adopted him 3 years ago, Odin has showered them with love and affection.
“He’s a very faithful companion,” Joyce told The Dodo. “He loves to hug and play.”
Earlier this month, as Odin’s birthday approached, the Cetina family decided go above and beyond to celebrate it. They threw Odin a surprise party to show how much they appreciate him.
Odin was indeed surprised — and touched to know that they remembered his birthday:
The Cetina’s had ordered a dog-friendly cake, and hung up decorations.
Then they revealed the surprise to Odin.
“At first, he was a little confused. He didn’t understand what it was all about,” Joyce said. “Then he saw the attention was focused on him, and the cake was for him. He was very happy.”
Of course, no celebration would be complete without a happy birthday song, and Odin’s was no different.
Watch Odin take it all in on camera (including his special cake) here:
“He loved it,” Joyce said.
Odin then received a number of gifts, which he also liked. But more than anything, according to Joyce, “he appreciated the many hugs and kisses he received.”
Odin and other little dogs deserve nothing less.
Though technically it was Odin’s big day (or rather the anniversary of the day they adopted him), his family feels like they’re the ones who’ve gotten the biggest gift of all.
“Of course, Odin is loved and pampered all year round,” Joyce said. “But for us, this is an important day because it’s the day he came into our lives. He makes us very happy.
