Making Your Own Puppy Cake or Muffins

November 8th, 2009 at 10:10 pm

This thing is so easy! It’s hard finding a local place that makes fresh doggy cakes, muffins, or treats so I have been trying to find easy products out there to help me bake at home for the Puggies.


Porky & Brownie’s Birthdays!

April 29th, 2007 at 7:05 pm

Porky turned 3 on April 23rd and Brownie turned 2 on April 28th. They are big boys now! We decided to have a small celebration at home since Porky’s heat spots are still not healed. I made the boys an all Organic Ginger & Banana Cake (I included recipe below as it was delicious and surprisingly, no diarrhea the next day). PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME BAKING…I PROMISE IT WILL BE PRETTIER NEXT TIME. For the bakers out there, I totally see why you guys love it. It was tricky writing with the icing and then it melted faster than we expected. I had so much fun baking my first cake for the boys, I made chocolate brownies the next day (for humans of course).

(Porky getting antsy to eat already.)


Dad, the candles are blown, can we eat NOW? (PORKY)


(left to right, Brownie, Porky – dig in!)


(Brownie’s eyes are popping…he is in shock and tongue envy because Porky is licking so fast. Porky has a huge, long tongue while Brownie in comparison, has a little lizard tongue.)


Don’t bother me, I’m eating! (PORKY)


Gosh, Pork’s tongue is so long! I need to catch up before he eats everything! (BROWNIE)


(left to right, Brownie, Porky)


Yummy in my Pug tummy! (PORKY)


Hmmm…how do I get in there? (PORKY)




(They licked off ALL the banana frosting, but then did not know how to bite into the cake, so Mom saved the day by cutting off a piece for each Pug. Note any dog cake or food your Puggy is not use to should be given in small portions or else they get diarrhea.)

(Porky is a huge foodie and has great table manners. He doesn’t spill and knows how to eat things just like the rest of us, a bite at a time, with the cake on the plate. Brownie on the other hand, takes his off the plate and eats it off the ground and gets it all over the floor. Here is Porky taking the first bite.)


(Brownie does not know what to do…he bites into the cake and drops it on the floor and starts eating.)


(Porky’s almost done with his cake now)


(Brownie is also finishing up his slice…on the floor. Notice what I mean about Brownie’s small tongue?)

Pug Birthday Party!

In the midst of numerous moves, there has been much delay in consolidating pictures from different cameras. Finally, I’ve got Porky’s birthday pictures! Who does not love Three Dog Bakery? That place rocks! We got a bone shape carrot cake, dog goodie bags, and some other fun stuff for a lovely day at the Pasadena Rose Bowl.
