Puppy Party!

Yesterday was Baxter’s 1st birthday, so naturally I had to throw him a party to celebrate. I am not ashamed to admit that this is not the first party he has had, and it certainly won’t be the last. Earlier this year he graduated from obedience school with his cousin Dunkin so my sister and I threw them a graduation party, and it was so fun to plan. Some of my favorite details from these parties have included birthday/graduation hats, a treat bar, cake pops decorated with candy dog paws and bones and a yummy dog cake for Baxter’s guests. Check out the adorable puppy pictures, and I also included the dog safe recipe for the cake his grandma makes him. Enjoy and Happy Birthday Baxter!
