Treat your favorite pup to these delicious and easy homemade Apple and Cheddar Pupcakes!
Yesterday, we celebrated Watson, our sweet Rhodesian Ridgeback. He turned six! He is officially older than us now (in dog years, of course). He’s getting a little sprinkling of gray on his chin and it’s the most adorable thing. Seriously, he is the sweetest, most gentle giant ever. Such a handsome devil too.
He’s even a YouTube star! I don’t blame ’em for putting him in front of the camera. He most definitely belongs there. I mean, look how non-reluctant he looks in this photo:
We usually do something special for his birthday (yeah, we’re those kind of people), whether it’s taking him to the ‘Barkery’ to pick out a treat, or baking him some homemade dog biscuits, peanut butter pupcakes, or other treats. This time, we baked him some Apple and Cheddar Dog Cupcakes and he loved them!
