I just realized that puppies conveniently skip turning 30! They go straight from being 28 to being 35.
Kahlua turned 4 today (28)! Usually I make a huge deal and assemble canines and humans and enforce some amount of celebration, but this year I couldn’t. However, we did have a very delicious(by dog standards) homemade cake!
It was simple to prepare, and almost healthy! Technically it was a pie – cake because it had a cookie crust. The cake itself was made from carrots, yogurt, honey and peanut butter and had a rather ugly yogurt peanut butter frosting. But here is the thing about fur children- no matter how ugly the cake, they’re appreciative! Ofcourse like all good mothers I let him lick the batter off the baking cups.
While I baked, Kahlua had some time for reflection.
The party hats came out when the cake was ready.
My well behaved, patient pup waited for all the photographic madness to be over.
I didn’t make him wait too long ofcourse!
He went for the treat, then the frosting, and the cake was gone in a gulp.
Immediately, it was time to doze off.
And then reflect on the cake that was now gone.
It was a good cake. It was a good birthday.
Now, he needs to stop growing.
