Does any of you willing to buy a birthday cake for your furbabies? or do you prefer to make your own?

If you're willing to buy, how much do you willing to pay?

LOL! I usually bake because I have 4 houndie birthdays... and that way I can monitor sugar and fat. We usually do 1 cupcake each...

Ya know, you are going to think Ruby is sooooo deprived but she's never had a birthday cake. She's had cake before and knows the word, but no cake for her bday.

She knows the birthday song melody tho because every morning I sing, "Good morning to you, good moring to you, you look like a basset, and you smell like one too!"

Many of the doggy bbakeries will do wheat free cakes. Wheat has a tendency to be more of a allergen than corn

Tawil waggin Bakery has cake mixes

I make doggie biscuits for my dogs for their shared birthday--we don't know BJ's birthday so he shares with Daisy. That lasts a lot longer, and I think they enjoy them a LOT more.

ROFLOL, that's so cute, I'll have to teach that to my boys, they walk around all the time singing the "you look like a monkey" version. They'd love this one! :D

Oops...I gave you the wrong lyrics! (I must have been tired when I wrote that).

It's, "Happy birthday to RU, Happy birthday to RU, (not you) and so on....."

Rubydoo's Mom - I am completely flabbergasted! I cannot imagine how you could deprive that poor soulfull and beautifully delicious (and obviously malnurished) Rubydoo of a birthday cake. I'm telling!! :D :D

I like those lyrics, too! LOL

Daisy's really learning to talk; one day I didn't understand her signals, and she tinkled by the back door. The next time I asked her "Wanna go potty?" I got a big loud "roo". Now if I ask that and she "roos" I know it's really time for a potty break! :D

What crazy/great dogs these hounds are! :D

I thought there was something wrong in that lyrics when I first read it. :D
I like it.

I just learned how to bake my own doggie birthday cake. It has carrots, peanut butter and honey with 1 cup of flour, The icing is creamcheese peanut butter icing with melted carob.

My friend was visiting me that evening. She said "I thought you're on south beach diet, what are you going to do with that cake?"
So I guess...I didn't do bad at all!!! :D

I would pay $20-25 for a cake, but just open a can of dog food smear a little cream cheese, and top with a biscut. Bassets will take any cake that comes there way.

Ruby would probably have diarrhea if I gave her something rich like a cake. And that is something I don't need to be dealing with.

This year I must confess... Jake got Frosty Paws for his birthday. We finally found them in our area- 4 in a pack... and 4 dogs :) They absolutely loved it!

I'm afraid that giving Francis either cake or ice cream would be the first step on the way to disaster. Any time he gets anything that's not usually on the menu I can depend on a bout of diarrhea :( For his birthday (February 25) he got a few extra hugs from me and an extra long walk
