Dog Birthday and Dog Cupcakes

Hello lovely people. I hope you have had a good week so far. 🙂

Our dog had his 4th birthday this week. I still remember he was such a cute puppy! I know, we all think our dogs and cats are cute. Can’t help it! To celebrate,  I baked some cupcakes for him.

First things first, let me introduce my babies. We have Chico (the dog), Tigger (black and white cat) and Leo. I had a post about Leo last year. If you want to know a little bit more about him, you can find the post here. Both Chico and Tigger are 4 years old this year and Leo is half-year older. Aren’t they gorgeous? 😉

The minute I showed Chico the cupcake, he fell in love with it immediately. I can tell, haha. 😉 Certainly, Tigger wanted to have a bite as well. Leo was somehow busy attacking my tree at the backyard.

However, when mom said we had to take photos first, the kid was very disappointed…..

At last, the birthday boy got to eat his birthday cupcake. He loved it so much. I have photos to prove. 🙂 If you dog does not like cheese, just skip the last step. You can use pork, beef or chicken to make the cupcakes.
