Wordful Wednesday. Cupcakes for Dogs & Humans.

This week two of my babies celebrated a birthday.

#2 turned 7…


and, Baby Dog Daughter, turned 12 1…


and celebrated by climbing her face into the trash can to celebrate because she’s naughty like that.

#2 decided that dumpster diving for tasty treats isn’t really his idea of a good time, so instead, he rang in his 7th year by having a friend and family over to enjoy the uncharacteristically wonderful weather outside…


#3 complained vehemently about a variety of things while the rest of us ate cupcakes, had BBQ, and had a friendly game of basketball on his brand new hoop.

I truly can not believe how much he’s grown and changed and enhanced every single little bit of my life since he came into this world via a small incision that hurt like a mofo in my abdomen 7 years ago…


And Baby Dog Daughter?

Her too.

She started off as a wee little shoe-chewing-house-pooping-kid-biting baby thing…


All fun and games unless she was playing dead sleeping…


And, she’s grown into this massive hunk of a shoe-chewing-better-not-ever-poop-in-this-house-or-so-help-me woman…

A massive hunk of a woman that I love in spite of her remarkable ability to piss me off royally with her badness pretty much every day of life.

So, in true crazy dog owner lady fashion, I baked her a doggie cake…

And, even though she acted entirely ungrateful…

she loved it and unceremoniously ate the heck out of it.

Because she’s chronically hungry like that.  And she appreciates a good cupcake just like her mama.

And because I know that you dog lovin’ mamas out there like me want to make happy birthday doggie cakes for your hairy beasts I’m gonna hook you up with my recipe now.

It may not appeal to the more discerning doggie palate, but to the eat anything breeds of the world, it will taste like butta (actually, it wasn’t completely horrible, and yes, I tasted it myself)

Your hairy beast can thank me later…

  1. Your dog is ALMOST as cute as your boys! :) That’s saying a lot because I’m not too much of a dog person.

  2. Happy Birthday to both and thanks for sharing that recipe! :)

  3. You are a great Doggy Mommy. When it’s my dog’s birthday, I’ll say, “Oh, hey! The dog’s [enter age here] today!” Then I’ll give the dog a smile and go about my business.

    Oopsy! Should I be doing more?… ;-)

  4. Dude, i thought that I was the only one who did this for her dog on their birthday. My friends make fun of me. jerks. Dogs are people too dang it…even if they do eat linoleum floors and roll around in dead animal carcasses…

  5. We had two birthdays around here too. One of ours goes on all fours, but is nowhere near as hairy as baby dog daughter!
