Happy Birthday 1st Birthday to my sweet little companion, Batman! Here’s Batman’s story: My mom breeds dachunds, and Batman was one of the nine pups that were born in the first litter. I was able to see all of them born via Skype (since I was living in Texas at the time), and then conveniately, I was flying home the next day just to visit with family. As soon as I laid eyes on him, I knew that I had to have him. He had black patches under his eyes and a big black line going down his back, which reminded us of Batman, so that’s why we named him Batman.
Fun facts about Batman: He loves playing tug or war, wresting with the cart (haha), and eating socks (when he’s not supposed to).
You might think I am crazy that I actually had a birthday party for my dog, but I couldn’t resist. I bought all of the decorations from Petco and then my mom and I made some edible dog cupcakes for his birthday. We also invited some of Batman’s dog friends over from up the street for some play time and some delicious cupcakes. Below I have the recipe for the cupcakes, for those of you that might want to make it for your dog.
Doggy Birthday Cupcakes
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey (optional)
