Here are some Valentine’s Day pupcakes for your best friend. I thought my gang would be excited that I was baking treats…not so much.

Buddy was bummed Ollie and Nahla took his bed.


Really? You’re gonna make me sleep on the floor? Not cool guys!

Meanwhile Kai decided it was the perfect time to change the heads on his drums. This is not a quiet process.

Amidst the banging and lack of enthusiasm I continued baking my pupcakes.

Bang! Thump! “Sorry mom.”

He’s adorable, my beautiful boy.

The recipe came from Cesar’s site. February 26th is World Spay Day. There are 600 MILLION homeless dogs. Please spay and neuter your pets.

    I think Hannibel wants to come and live with you so you can bake him special treats. I can put him in Eric’s car tonight if you want.
