This is our old girl Sadie.  She turned 14 in June.  I made her “Pea-mutt Butter and Pumpkin Pupcakes” to help celebrate, which she loved.

As you can tell from the photo, she’s not as thrilled with her hat!She knew the pupcakes were coming Kathleen!  :)

    Looks like a lot of our sweet shelties will be enjoying some pupcakes. Thank you for taking the time to give us all the recipe…:)

    I have two little friends who would probably enjoy “pupcakes” too. Is that short for pancakes or for cupcakes and could I please have the recipe, too?

    Kathleen, I forgot to ask, do you follow a specific recipe for the “pupcakes”? If you do could you possibly send me a copy? Something tells me that Tru would probably enjoy them. Thanks in advance. Shawn

    Salutations and Congratulations on Sadie’s birthday. Even with the hat she is a regal lady. I looked at the picture in amazement as Sadie looks like the twin sister to my Tru. She turned 6 back in March. Sadie’s expression is identical to one that Tru gives me sometimes when she seems to be asking “Why are you doing this to me?” We both wish you many more glorious days!
