It seems like ages since I've been in bloggerland .... combine spring break, rainy days and bored kids and you get the idea :)

Yesterday was GORGEOUS though - and today is too for that matter. Our street is lined with pink-petalled plum trees and the sound of lawn mowers and other power tools is filling the air.

Yesterday was our sweet dog's 4th birthday - he is now 28 in dog years. I made him this pupcake (above) and he thoroughly enjoyed his new mint flavored tennis balls (non-toxic and made especially for dogs).

Here's the pupcake recipe:

1/2 c flour
1/2 t baking powder (aluminum free)
2 T peanut butter
2 T vegetable oil
1/2 c shredded carrots (or apples or some other dog-friendly add-in)
2T honey
1 egg

Mix well and pour into 2 muffin sized baking cups, or 4 cupcake sized baking cups. When cooled, frost with a half and half mixture of peanut butter and sour cream. Put a dog biscuit on top. Sing "Happy Birthday," and shock your pooch by giving him a treat he didn't have to steal from the countertop :)

he's actually a bouvier .... they are most commonly black. I wanted a wheaten, DH wanted a bouvier, so we ended up with a fawn colored (and small) bouvier that looks like a wheaten - best of both worlds :) ..... he's sweet!
