Happy Birthday Bender! Milwaukee Admirals pup celebrates 1st birthday

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's a special day for a special boy. 

The Milwaukee Admirals' hockey dog "Bender" celebrates his 1st birthday Thursday, Dec. 10. The Ads shared a picture of the pup in the locker room on his big day with the caption, "It's official. We have a ONE year old. Happy first birthday to the best rink doggo in the entire AHL." 

Shortly after the post, the American Hockey League wished Bender a happy birthday on Twitter. Too sweet! 

The team adopted Bender from the Humane Animal Wellness Society of Waukesha in February 2020. He's an ambassador for the Admirals, raising awareness around homeless pets and annual welfare issues. 

Happy Birthday, Bender! Here's a look back at one of his first times on the ice with the team.
