Doggie Cake!

This weekend we were in Center, to visit Darren's parents. Friday night, we had a crawfish boil and kept Coco outside with us. She had a blast and "explored" EVERYTHING and even tried to sneak some crawfish, but all in all - she was such a good girl. She was really stinky though, from the crawfish and dirt and mud she managed to get into, so Darren and I decided to give her a bath. Being the genius that I am, I had anticipated the coming bath and earlier in the day, had picked up a "treat" for after she got out of her bath. We got all of the grass burs out of her hair, brushed her really good and then got a nice warm bath! She was so soft and fluffy and smelled so good and I was so proud, that she had done so well that I decided to make her a cake!

Have you ever seen these? I hadn't! It's just like those little microwavable desserts for humans. She just HAD to try one of these, I thought so I mixed it up and iced it and instead of following the directions and letting it sit for 20-30 minutes, I was so excited I gave it to her right away. Well, they probably tell you to let it set up so the icing with harden some and it won't be so sticky, who knows.

All I do know is, this is what Coco looked like after she finished her cake. Nice, huh? And by finish her cake, I mean (just like any normal "kid"), lick all of the icing off the cake and just take a couple bites of the cake itself. Now, I'm sure that I don't have to tell you that, that she had a fit when I tried to clean her off! I got the chunks of cake out of her hair but I couldn't get the stickiness out and so parts of her "beard" are hard and you know what - it was like 11 at night by this point, and so I just went with it! At least I learned to give her the cake BEFORE her bath next time!
