Let me tell you - there are few things in life that are cuter than walking into a room and overhearing your husband singing "happy birthday" to your puppy. Lots of kisses and snuggles later, Pepper got a big cookie for his gift and was very happy as we left for work.
I wanted to make his day extra special so I planned a celebratory evening in honour of our cutie pie. First up, his special dinner was a "mutt loaf" - basically a Yorkie-friendly meatloaf that I shaped into a teddy bear using a mold. He's normally a really picky eater so I was afraid that he wouldn't like it/it was too much for him, but he finished the bear off in about 5 minutes so I would say that it was a success!
For dessert, I baked him a Pepper-sized birthday cake. We stuck a candle in it, sang to him and we all made a wish. He must have been pretty full from dinner since he normally loves baked things but he only managed a few bites before jumping on the couch and falling fast asleep! :)
I hope he had a lovely first birthday! We sure had a fun time celebrating it with him. :)
