We can infer the month would September from the description at the beginning of the story. We also know that Doodle's birthday is a bit later.... October.

We chose to reveal all on October eighth, Doodle's sixth birthday, and for weeks ahead we mooned around the house, promising everybody a most spectacular surprise.
