Made-up Holidays: Boo’s Birthday

You might think this is a holiday weekend because of St. Patty’s tomorrow, but today marks an equally important celebration too. Boo, the famous Pomeranian who has over six and a half million likes on his Facebook page, turns seven today. 150257_467661708253_3193138_n

There are multiple ways in which one can honor Boo on his seventh birthday. If you feel like purchasing something, the Urban Outfitters store on Thayer Street has lots of options, such as Boo cell phone cases and plush toys. If the stuffed animal Boo doesn’t cut it for you, you could consider adopting a pomeranian of your very own, though having pets in dorms is not the most practical.

A more meaningful way to celebrate Boo’s birthday is to donate seven dollars to the Pet Therapy Program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. On both his Facebook page and the hospital’s website, Boo has asked for donations to this program, which brings trained therapy dogs and cats to the hospital to ease children’s anxiety and discomfort.

So, enjoy the dual holiday weekend filled with lots of green and “the world’s cutest dog.” Rumor has it Gala tonight is actually one huge birthday party for this canine celebrity.
