Celebrating pet birthdays have been becoming increasingly more popular over the last few years. They can range from private family celebrations to full out doggie pool parties. Gatsby’s 2nd Birthday is just a few days away. His first year was a rough one and that’s when my husband and I decided to start celebrating our furkid’s birthdays.
Since last May, we’ve had 3 birthday parties for the dogs. We haven’t done anything too over the top, just a trip to the dog park, a dog-friendly birthday cake (with candles and singing, of course), and a present or two to share.
I’d like to share a recipe for the cake I am making for Gatsby this year:
PB & Honey Pup-Cakes
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots
1/3 cup honey
Mix together flour and baking soda. Add remaining & mix well. Pour the batter into a greased muffin tin.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool and decorate with melted carob, shredded carrots & banana slices.
Maybe our little girl, Sara, will have a puppy pool party later this summer, it sounds like a blast! How will you be celebrating your pet’s birthday this year? Feel free to sound off in the comments section!
With five cats and a dog, it is no secret my wife and I are huge animal lovers. My dog Lucy looks just like Gatsby, although a much larger version. 🙂 Will have to try the recipe and see if she likes it. Great blog. Keep up the good work.
