PupCakes Doggy Approved Cupcakes

When I saw this pin on Pinterest, I couldn’t resist.  I followed the pin over to Courtney’s blog, Pizzazzrie.  You absolutely must go check out her recipe for Pupcakes and see her pics of her super cute pup, Henry.

I followed Courtney’s recipe exactly and it made the most wonderful 6 pupcakes ever!  At least I assume they were wonderful because all the dogs that ate one scarfed it down so quick I almost couldn’t get a picture!

Because you should definitely only feed your dogs pupcakes for a special occasion, Willow and Harley shared their leftover pupcakes with their neighborhood friends too.

Super Sized Summer Dog Treats

The pups have been spending a lot of time in the heat lately and I am always looking for special treats to cool them off, and even better, occupy them.  For this super sized treat I took a two liter bottle and cut off the top.  I put a variety of chopped fruit (berries, apples, and banana) in the container and filled it about half way with water.  Once it was fairly solid I added more fruit and filled it to almost full and froze it.  Finally I added a special treat on top, topped off the container with water, and froze overnight until solid.  I ran the container under hot water to loosen the treat and then tossed the treat out on the deck for the fur-babies to enjoy! (Be aware – it gets messy!)

Willow, being the retriever that she is, had to carry it around for a while before sitting down to enjoy it. :0)  I just love my chocolate horse!!

So take the time and make a super sized dog treat for your babies.  I promise it will keep them occupied for a long time, and your dogs will thank you!
