It’s a Birthday! Make a Puppycake!

Life’s little celebrations is what it’s all about! This week, my granddogter (yes, you read that right) was visiting from Chicago. Capri was turning 8, and having missed all of her birthdays, I decided to make this one special. Our pets are so special to us and are taken away far too soon. Many young couples adopt a pet and it becomes their first ‘child’, so its befitting to celebrate each year of their short life. Can you tell Capri is smiling in this picture with her mommy and daddy.

Cake, balloons, candles, and presents were part of the action! I searched high and low to find a cuppycake recipe, so yay for Pinterest ! Capri sat at the table, and sucked up the icing as we sang “Happy Birthday” to her! She even kept on her party hat!
