Do people really celebrate their dog’s birthday?
Yes. It really is a thing. People love to celebrate with their pup on special days like “Gotcha Day” or their birthdays. Some even go all out and invite their puppy friends to attend and have dog friendly cake and ice-cream.
How hard is it to make treats for your dog?
Already cook for the family? Can you follow a recipe? Can you use a stove, oven, and mixer? Making treats like this dog meatloaf cake recipe isn’t hard at all. If you already know how to cook for humans, then cooking for a pup is super simple. You just have to remember one important rule. Do not add anything they aren’t supposed to eat like onions, garlic, or raisins. After all, you wouldn’t add peanuts to a recipe for someone with a nut allergy.
Dog’s don’t need seasonings added either. Ingredients like salt, pepper, and sugar, can be left on the shelf. Your dog’s health will love you for not adding them.
