Shelly's 9th birthday


Today was a very special day. My English Cocker Spaniel Shelly was celebrating her 9th birthday. And what would a birthday be without a cake, or in this case a vegan cupcake?
I made her cupcake using the strawberry cupcake recipe from the Happy Herbivore's cookbook, but instead of vanilla frosting with strawberries I frosted her cupcake with her favorite peanut butter. She went for the frosting first, of course :-)


I got her a cute present, a doggie donut with miniature cupcakes :-)




And daddy got her a squeaky quail that sounds like a duck :-)





Shelly enjoyed her birthday cupcake and gifts very much. Am I a dork for making a birthday cupcake for my dog? Am I crazy for celebrating my dog's birthday? Do you celebrate your cats and dogs birthdays?

  2. Your dog is adorable! She looks like such a sweetie. I hope those stuffed toys last a while, I know with our Shiba they are gone by the end of the day (sadly, he does not value his toys much!).

  3. @Ruby June Thank you :-) Shelly is very good with her toys, she is gentle and her toys last many years. We have a basket full of toys, some are 7 years old :-)
