Mitzi turns 1
Today was Mitzi's birthday. We celebrated by taking her downtown to the Park Strip for the Independence Day festival, where we were almost double charged for our lunch and it started to rain but she made many new best friends.
And then I baked cupcakes for her YES I BAKED CUPCAKES FOR A DOG don't judge me.
We gave the cupcakes to the dogs on these fancy star plates that I've had hanging around forever, and the dogs just loved them. Mitzi took hers off of the plate immediately and ate it on her settle mat, while Olive licked hers a bunch, pulled the sticks out of the top and set them aside (I guess they aren't her favorite?), ate the cookies, and then gingerly ate the rest of her cupcake. Like a little princess.
Donovan got Mitzi a beef rib and wrapped it up all nice and pretty, and while Olive was distracted licking her cupcake, Mitzi opened her gift enough to expose one end of a beef rib - just enough to lick.
Then I passed a cupcake around to the humans to try because they are totally healthy, basically peanut butter carrot cake. Steve was more wary than anyone, but he was a trooper and tried a piece. They taste kind of dry and bland with a hint of peanut butter after taste. We let the dogs enjoy them.
The dogs enjoyed it, but I don't think I'll be baking a cake again. Maybe something for Olive's birthday next year, because she's been grumping and pouting all day. Something about forgetting her birthday. Whatever.
