Fox Fursday: Lentil Celebrates His First Birthday!

Posted: Updated:

Lentil the dog celebrated his first birthday today with FOX 29. He was born with a cleft palate and has brought inspiration to both children, adults and pet owners who deal with cleft palates regularly.

During his early years, he was fed through a tube to sustain life. Some even feared he wouldn't survive. He eventually had to have surgery to improve the quality of his life, but his owner insists that there has never been any intention to change his appearance.

Lentil now inspires organizations like the Children's Cranialfacial Organization, which deals with children born with differences to their craniofacial structure.

CCA regularly shares stories and photos from Lentil's day-to-day to inspire confidence, self-acceptance, and overall happiness to both their community and the general population.

Today, for Lentil's first birthday, Marianne Charbonneau from Just Dogs And Cats woke up early to bring Lentil his very own birthday doggy cake! Despite Lentil's picky eating habits, he loved the treat.

Just Dogs And Cats is currently located at 18th and Chestnut but will be moving to 17th and Samson.

Check out Lentil's previous appearances on FOX 29.
