Our beautiful Simone, the Golden Retriever "Chief Executive Cuddler" of Saint Simeon's, had her 7th birthday on April 1, 2016! We celebrated by throwing her a big party, like we do every year!
The party was complete with a cake both for humans and a separate cake for Simone! Simone's cake was made by staff members and Memory Center Residents and filled with things dogs love, like peanut butter, carrots, dog treats, and more!
The partygoers enjoyed hearing the story of Simone I and Simone II from Kathy Hinkle, Simone's "Mom." Partygoers were encouraged to bring dog food to be donated to the dogs of the homeless, since Simone's birthday wish is always to help dogs in need. Each Monday, Saint Simeon's Residents gather in the Wellness Center to bag 50 pound bags of dog food into smaller baggies to be given to the homeless population of Tulsa and their dogs. Altogether, we collected 150 pounds of dog food at Simone's party!
Thanks to everyone who attended and wished Simone a happy birthday on her Facebook page!
