I know I’m a bit obsessed over my Lily dog, but she’s my baby and always puts a smile on my face. 🙂 Mr. Prevention and I knew we wanted a bulldog YEARS before we got Lily. There was no doubt in anyone’s minds…this dog would be spoiled. Rotten.
We picked Lily up straight from the airport when we returned from our honeymoon last June. We knew the breeder and knew that Lily and her 6 sisters and 1 brother were in excellent hands. We went over several times to play with all the pups as they grew and our hearts belonged to Lily (who was named G’Dot at the time, standing for “Girl Dot” in reference to the dot on her head. Her brother also had a dot on his head and was appropriately referred to as B’Dot).
If you’re as proud a canine mama as I am, here’s a doggie cake recipe for you! Spoil your 4-legged son or daughter appropriately on their special day!
Hard to believe my baby is ONE today! Happy Birthday, Lily! I hope you enjoy your cake!
Note: I made one giant cake, cut it down the center length-wise and created 2 Bone Cakes by just cutting the shape with a knife. I think they’re cute 🙂
Doggie Bone Cake from Homecooked Em
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tbsp honey
1 mashed ripe banana
1 1/3 cup water
1 tbsp baking powder
Mix all ingredients and bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean! And the frosting was a mixture of cream cheese, mashed banana, and peanut butter!

Question: Do you have a pet? What are their names? Are you a dog person or cat person?
Happy Birthday Lily! 😉
P.S. Less than ONE WEEK left in the DO What you DON’T Challenge! Finish out strong, I’m going to want to hear from all (77!) of you on how you did!
