Happy 19th Birthday, Scruffles!

Happy 19th Birthday, Scruffles!

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!
Scruffles turned 19 today! In honor of his birthday, my husband and I took him to the Three Dog Bakery for some pupcakes (doggie-safe cupcakes). I figured that since Scruff has been around for many a cupcake baking (all of them) and has never sampled, he might want to enjoy a cupcake all to himself.

As it turns out, Scruff does indeed love cupcakes. However, unlike me, Scruffles is a huge frosting fan. He ate all of the frosting first and searched the ground for any frosting that may have dropped before even considering the rest of the pupcake.
I feel a bit like a bad Mom for not baking the pupcakes myself. To me, home baked goods are always better. Scruff didn’t seem to care.
Truth revealed: It was the first time we’d even celebrated his birthday. He didn’t seem to hold a grudge about that either. Thank goodness. A big party is definitely in order for his 20th next year.
For those who may want to make their own pupcakes, here’s a recipe from another blogger at Culinary in the Country.


Since it is Scruffles’ birthday and all, he really should be honored with a picture that shows off his cuteness. He didn’t think that the pupcake one was all that flattering. Therefore, I present to you Scruffles looking cute on his birthday:

    Happy birthday to the world’s oldest dog.

  5. 4 comments and no one mentions the pupcakes (a clever marketing niche and somewhat, though remotely, related to the topic)…


    Not even a question such as ‘Did the groom like them?’

    Focus, people…
