Cupcakes for your dog are made with peanut butter and banana, and topped with a mashed potato “frosting” and a dog treat garnish!
I found out late in the day of March 23rd that it was National Puppy Day.
And how could I possibly not celebrate my favorite little girl?
And in true form, I had to go a little overboard. Yes, I’m calling them pupcakes.
No, a puppy doesn’t need a homemade pupcake.
And no, she doesn’t care what it looks like.
And yes, I’m a little nuts for making a cupcake for my dog that looks good enough for a human to eat. I don’t care. She deserves it!
Clearly, she is completely okay with my decision.
The other was a Hare of the Dog Rabbit Recipe Red Apple & Dandelion treat that came from her latest BarkBox and while she doesn’t do backflips for them the way she does for mine (thankyouverymuch), she definitely likes them.
