Chloe turns One








If you don't already know, Chloe is our Maltese / Shi Tzu puppy.  We picked her up from the breeder last July when she was nine weeks old and a whopping 2 1/2 pounds.  Today is her birthday, she's one!  I can't believe it's been almost a year that we've had her.  She immediately fit into our family.  She's probably the MOST tolerant dog I've ever had the pleasure of owning.  With a 3 and 5 year old in the house, this is a requirement (mostly because of the 3 year old).  Chloe is now full size at 8 1/2 pounds.

Bryce and Paige wanted to throw Chloe a party for her birthday to celebrate her first year. 

So we baked a doggie cake and sang Happy Birthday.

Chloe was a bit timid at first.....


Testing out the cake.........


Taking a big bite........


She really got into it........


Paige tried to snatch a piece, so I gave her, her own.......
Paige and I tried some of the cake.  Bryce wouldn't.  It tasted like peanut butter and flour....no real sweetness.  Chloe LOVED it!
Here is the recipe.....
