March 31st is a special day around here. It’s the birthday of our most special family member, Stanley. He’s our fur baby, best friend, and favorite snuggle partner. If you love your dog more than most human beings and you want to shower them with a healthy and special birthday treat, this post is for you. I am a sucker for catchy titles so calling it a Pupcake instead of a cupcake just feels right. Pupcakes- Birthday cake for dogs. I think I might be onto something.
I like to make every birthday for Stanley super special. Dog lovers know, you only get so many birthdays with these special friends and every single one of them is equal to 7 human birthdays. I know he has no idea it’s his birthday and that’s okay with me, because I do. We spend the entire weekend celebrating. He got a new collar from the Ellen line at PetSmart. He’s looking super cute in his new neck ware. We make it a point to stay around the house playing fetch and serving up a few extra treats. One of those treats is the Pupcake. You’ll see in the video below he gobbles it right up.
I’ve always loved animals, but Stanley honestly makes me love them on a level that I sometimes question whether it’s normal. The truth is, because of this furry face our lives are better every single day. I am a strong advocate for animal shelters and rescues. Each year on Stanley’s birthday we make an extra donation to our favorite local animal rescue. You can’t save every animal, but every dollar, minute of your time, and love that you give to a homeless pet means something. I will list links to some of my favorite pet charities below in case you’re wondering where to give.
I hope you make these Pupcakes for your furry friend or a dog that’s special to you in your life.
Please spay or neuter your pets, and when you pick up supplies for your furry family member, think of your local animal shelter.
Here are a list of Pet Charities We Recommend:
No kill shelters, our local Humane Society and K9 for Warriors, an organization which trains service dogs for veterans are just a few of our favorites.
We also highly recommend Rachel Ray’s line of dog treats. They are zero grain, made in the USA and every dollar of profit goes to saving the lives of homeless pets in America. Stanley loves the grass fed beef burgers. You can order them from Amazon!
