Most people celebrate this Irish holiday with excessive drinking, instead my family celebrates the birthday of our three dachshunds; Oskar, Max and Leo. This has been a tradition for at least the past five years. We know that Oskar's, the oldest dog, birthday is actually today. The other two were adopted from an animal rescue shelter so their birthday is unknown. Therefore, we celebrate all three of them on the 17th of March. Every year we order this gorgeous, sugar-free, liver cake from the local pet store and let the three of them devour it!
