Yesterday was America’s 242nd birthday (that’s 1,694 in dog years), and many of our puppy pals had a blast pawtying in the USA! While California doods Bowser (@bowserkoopaha) and Cooper (@cooperdoodle2015) were lucky enough to celebrate the holiday together, other dogs shared their Independence Day spirit via photos, messages, and pawmail.
Gift Spawt loved seeing our Instagram feed full of patriotic pups romping on the beach, grilling out, and lounging poolside. It seems like even those that aren’t fans of fireworks found a way to have a poppin’ 4th of July!
From coast to coast, here’s how a few of our dog friends enjoyed their red, white, and blue festivities.
Of course, his first order of business was hitting the beach, catching some waves, and chilling in the sand with a frosty Grrrona. Later, he hung out with his cousin, ate some yumminess from the grill, and sat by the pool. It was definitely a fun in the sun kind of day!
Barley looks forward to the Fourth of July every year! Not only does she get to wear her red, white, and blue accessories, but she also gets to play hostess to her family from out of town.
Their Independence Day started at the Hudson River, where Barley enjoyed the waterfront and sunshine. That evening, they ordered dinner and sat on the rooftop waiting for the festivities to begin. While the humans were so excited to watch the Macy's Fireworks, Barley was happy to chill out with her picnic and popsicle. Once she was nice and full, she went inside and left the humans to enjoy the big show.
Wearing matching American flag bandanas, these puppy pals had a BBQ with hot dogs, watermelon, and red, white, and blue popsicles. After lunch, they ran around the yard, played fetch, wrestled, posed for patriotic pics, and finally cooled off with some ice cream.
Cooper’s celebration continued on July 4th with another BBQ, but this time, a human friend came over. With all of the excitement, Cooper got a case of the zoomies and also admits that he worked overtime begging for some scraps. But the food fun ended when his mom caught him licking paper plates in the trash can! Whoops!
Franky and Brassie spent the 4th rocking their red, white, and blue sunglasses, bandanas, and socks. Even though they were bummed that their parents went to the pool and burrito night without them, they still had an awesome day because they looked pawtriotic AF.
Bentley says that the Fourth of July is such a fun holiday for his family. Every year, they have a huge pool party and cook out in his grandparents' back yard. He spent the day chasing after tiny humans that he thought were puppies, being a fierce competitor in a soccer match, and stealing countless pieces of chicken and hot dogs off the big food table. At the end of the night, he even got to take part in some three-minute long sparkler celebrations!
