Pupcakes (Birthday Treats for Dogs)
I am fortunate enough to share my life with not one…..but four fabulous dogs! Yes, you read that right, I said four. We are owned by a handsome 12 year old chocolate Labrador Retriever, Charlie. My middle child Adam was only 10 months old when we adopted Charlie from the humane society, and they quickly became fast friends. One of my favorite memories of the two of them was when they used to play hide and seek together, and I would find them snuggled up fast asleep underneath Adam’s crib. Then we have our gentle gent 7 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel,Winston. He is an easy going fella, who typical of the breed loves almost to a fault loves everyone and anyone he meets. He has a smile for everyone! Next we have our dainty little lady 2 year old red Toy Poodle, Cinnamon. She is graceful, beautiful, smart and holds a very special place in my heart. I used to be a strictly large dog lover – no yappy little annoying creatures would share our dwelling. That was…. until I learned contrary to their foofy appearance, and pretentious reputation – poodles are incredibly smart intuitive dogs. I swear she talks to me! Last, but certainly not least, we are owned by the life of the party 1 year old black Toy Poodle, Salem. She is jovial, feisty and the perfect snuggle buddy.
Salem just turned a year old! Which called for a celebration, and we had a party fit for any poodle princess. For Salem’s birthday I decided to make her some pupcakes to enjoy with her furry siblings. This recipe is puppy approved, by my four furry pals. I hope you make these pupcakes for your fur babies special day!
