Yesterday (Monday, December 6th) was Petal's first birthday! This year has gone by incredibly fast, but it's been a really fun year. Petal has grown so much and so fast, it's hard to believe she was just a tiny little puppy in February. It's also hard to believe it's already December!
We had some fun with Petal's birthday though and baked mini vanilla cupcakes and frosted them with purple buttercream frosting. They turned out really good and were a big hit with everyone, including the dogs. ;] We also bought them some cookies from a local dog store (Urban Dawgz) and those were devoured in seconds.
Mini vanilla cupcakes!

Yummy cupcake! Spoiled, spoiled dog. :P
My sister Melanie had fun feeding a second cupcake to Petal. She even smeared the frosting over her nose.
Petal was not very happy about getting frosting smeared across her nose. Hahaha.
Would you believe that she actually looks at people from the corner of her eye like that all the time?
And, of course, what's a birthday party without presents? And what's a dog birthday party without new Kong toys?
Petal got a brand new Kong and a Kong Braidz Giraffe, which she is in love with. In fact, she's currently curled up with it on the floor and fast asleep by my feet.
