Happy Birthday Franco!

This post has been saved as a draft for about a week now – sheesh! Things have been busy around the Glitter Cottage household lately! 

If you know me personally or if you’ve followed me for a while, you know that we have two incredibly sweet pups, Franco & Allie.

Allie and Charlee are completely inseparable and the absolute BEST of friends. We found Allie through a local rescue and she’s just the sweetest, most lovable pup – EVER.

He also has been Justin’s best bud since he got him when he was around a year old. Not to get too deep but Franco has been there through ups, downs, hardships and exciting life changes. It’s crazy that he just turned 12 a couple weeks ago! Technically, we celebrate both dogs’ on the same day since we aren’t completely sure of Allie’s birthday. They don’t seem to mind. 😉

A birthday isn’t a birthday without a cake! I decided to throw together a dog friendly cake including:

  • Bananas
  • Applesauce
  • Peanut butter
  • Oat flour
  • Rolled oats
  • Greek yogurt

I topped it all off with a mixture of Greek yogurt and peanut butter (which is also one of my favorite snacks!). We were able to snag a couple photos prior to the dogs chowing down.

It was a gorgeous day full of doggy snuggles and peanut butter kisses! Charlee made them a card (haha!) and we even sang happy birthday. Not sure who enjoyed it most, the dog children or the human child. 

Do you celebrate your pets birthday? Or do you think we’re a bunch of weirdos? 🙂 Let me know!

    I think your husband is a weirdo but not you!!!! I miss my puppies every single day. The ones that are alive and have passed. They are not just pets but part of the family and thats why I would celebrate things like this. They are special parts of our lives and they deserve to be spoiled and have treats every once in a while.

    PS you sure its not Justin who passes the gas and blames it on Franco?
