Monday Mischief: It's All About The Cake

Is it really Monday already?  And, the Monday after turning the clocks ahead?  This whole daylight savings time thing is nothing but unnecessary mischief. 

The Lapdogs had a nice, lazy weekend at home with their humans.  Best of all, Zeus had a pretty good weekend and a very happy birthday!  Of course I haven't had time to download any pictures off of my camera yet, but I do have some from my phone to share.

My boy got an apple oatmeal cake with peanut butter frosting from The Barkery.  It smelled almost good enough for me to take a bite, but I didn't.  Although I certainly could have.  I love that The Barkery not only uses human grade ingredients, but they keep things simple too - pureed apples, unbleached, un-bromated white flour, oats, vanilla and water (plus the peanut butter icing and peanut butter dog bones).

It's safe to say the cake was Zeus-approved.  He absolutely loved it!  We usually just put the cake down and say "don't touch" (I know, awful parents, right?!?!) in order to take some pictures before we cut it up to share... but not when you turn 14!

I let Zeus have at his cake for a few minutes before we took it away to cut up and serve (of course he shared with Sophie & Tut, and we even had leftovers for later).  This video just makes me smile from ear-to-ear...


Please keep the good vibes flowing for my boy.  Just over a week ago we thought we only had a couple hours left with him, but he's a trooper and once again showing that amazing will to live.  He actually seems to be acting a little better, but we know that is in part due to the anti nausea meds he needs daily.  I'm not sure how long Zeus can keep this fight up, but we are cherishing every moment!

That's a great looking cake and apparently it tasted just as good. Somehow I think it would have been gone in two gulps if it was at our house. Glad your birthday was a good one.

Happy Birthday!

Wow - Blueberry would have inhaled that cake and not eaten it nearly as politely.

I bet you could eat the cake.

Recently I made dog cookies, basically gingerbread for dogs. I brought some to work to share with coworkers who have dogs. My boss loved the smell so he asked to try one himself. After he tasted it, I did too. It wasn't bad at all. It just wasn't sweet. There was no sugar but a bit of molasses in there.

Glad Zeus enjoyed his birthday treat!
