Daisy’s 14th birthday cake

Yesterday, Daisy reached the geriatric age of 14 – an achievement for any larger sized dog.  We of course celebrated with a doggy birthday cake, which was a wheat-free apple and banana cake with a low fat cream cheese frosting.

I decorated the cake with a vintage Disney carousel ornament – the heat from the candles makes the carousel turn.

(Excuse the singing – it was the best I could do with a cold and sore throat)

Celebrating all of the mothers

Sunday is Mother’s Day.  The Best Friends Animal Society have put out this lovely video to celebrate all mothers – four-legged ones too!

Daisy is a mother; I’m Daisy’s Mum.  We have yet to decide how we will mark the occasion but we will pause (paws) to celebrate.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day – Doggy Style

It’s Mother’s Day and we shouldn’t forget that many of our dogs have been mums too (whether planned or unplanned).

In my case, Daisy has been a mum  – it happened before I adopted her.  Although I don’t know any of her puppies, I think it is fitting that we celebrate her motherhood status, particularly as she is a senior dog of almost 13.

Happy Mother’s Day Daisy!  Your Mum loves you!!!

Dexter’s first birthday

I’m a caterer – but of the doggy kind.  I took an order a few weeks ago from the Herne Bay Local Eatery and Bar for a special Dog and Grog event (these events are held the last Sunday of every month when patrons and their dogs are all welcome to attend).

The special event was Dexter’s first birthday.

Anna is the manager of the restaurant and also Dexter’s mother.  From the photos she’s sent in, all had a wonderful time.  Thanks for your support of Canine Catering, Anna!

St Pawtrick’s Day

Does your dog celebrate St Patrick’s Day (a.k.a. St Pawtrick’s Day)?

St Patrick's dog

Most dogs don’t really enjoy being dressed in costume.  However, there are breeds that have Irish roots.  Let’s honor these breeds on St Patrick’s Day and simply include our dogs in the celebrations rather than dressing them up!

Grab a Guinness and let’s toast:
