Happy 1st Birthday, Katie!

It's hard to believe our Katie is already 1 year old...where does the time go??  *sniff sniff*

I think it's safe to say she has enjoyed her birthday, though.  I baked her some "pupcakes" (recipe below), and she got some presents, as WELL as plenty of love and attention - as if she didn't already get that.

Happy Birthday Katie Ruth!!  :)
She looooved the pupcake...oh my goodness.  She refused to eat if off the plate, so like a civilized doggie, she took it to eat on her pillow.  And made a huge, crumby mess.  But hey, it's her birthday!

She also loved her presents...a new stuffing-less Bobo and a hard pretzel chew that's chicken flavored.  Oh yeah, and the cutest little treats called 'Quacks'!  :)

It was impossible to get a still shot-she was a playing machine!

Yes, some people probably think that we spoil her.  But why not?  Even though we have our first baby on the way, Katie is also our baby and we love her very much.  :)

This is her the first day we got her:

What a cutie!!!!!!!  I miss her being this small!

But if she never grew, would this be as much fun??  :)

We love you Squirrel!  Hope you've had a great 1st birthday!  Don't grow up too fast...and also...learn how to behave.  lol

Cheddar Pupcakes

*Note- I halved this recipe to only make 5 pupcakes.  It will make 10 if you do not halve it.

1½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup traditional rolled oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup applesauce
½ cup water
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 eggs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients together and fill into paper-lined muffin tins.  Bake for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees.  Cool completely before feeding to your pup!
