Today I am going to show y’all how to make a raw birthday cake for your dog. It is really simple with just four ingredients and your dog will love it! This cake is perfect for dogs on a raw diet. If you are not comfortable with feeding your dog raw meat, just cook the meat after completing step 3.
What you will need:
Ground meat (We used hamburger)
1 String cheese stick
The string cheese stick will be your candle for the cake. Cut the cheese stick into the size candle you want and then place in a zip-lock or container and let freeze until stiffened.
Take your ground meat and divide it into three balls. Make the first ball the biggest, the second a little smaller and the third even smaller. You should now have a big ball, a medium ball and a small ball.
Smash the balls of ground meat into patties with your hands, however thick you like. Just make sure they are all pretty much the same thickness.
Layer the patties of meat on top of each other: biggest one on the bottom, medium in middle and small on the very top.
Place the frozen peas along the cracks of the cake layers, while pushing them into the meat some to keep them in place.
Now, sprinkle the cake with some kelp for a little decoration. Then, take the cheese stick out of the freezer and push into the top of the cake.
Your cake is now finished!
Serve to your dog and let them enjoy :D
If you made this cake for your dog, feel free to drop us a comment below and let us know how they liked it!
Jess made me a brand new bed from scratch! It is so comfy and I love it! She says she might add some sides to it later to make it more cozy, but until then I will be enjoying it as is. It was once fabric and stuffing, and now it my bed full of fluffing! Hahaha :D
Perfect, right next to the bone stash ;)
Just right to hang your head off the side.
It’s so comfy.
We’re not sure how it will hold up in the washing machine yet, so wish it luck when it needs a washing!
Is that a word? Frogurt? Well, I don’t care if it is or isn’t because it’s absolutely delicious! And in case you haven’t figured it out yet, frogurt is what we call frozen yogurt. Well, tomorrow’s my birthday (yippee!) and in case you would like to celebrate it with me (even more than what we’ve been doing all week long), I have a yummy DIY cake both you and your dog can enjoy! It’s beautiful and delicious.
D.I.Y. Strawberry Frogurt Cake Treat
What you’ll need:
Container(s) to freeze your treat in.
Now, there are no specific amounts of ingredients to use because it all depends on how much you are making and how sweet you want it to be.
Step 1. Slice up some strawberries about 1/8″ thick and line the bottom of your container(s) with them.
Step 2. Combine some other strawberries and yogurt in blender. Blend until well mixed.
Step 3. Slowly pour the yogurt mixture over the strawberry lined container(s).
The strawberries on the bottom will probably move around some when pouring the yogurt in. So be sure to pour slowly.
Step 4. Place in the freezer. We made ours and then ate it the next day, so I’m not sure how long it takes before it’s completely frozen (sorry about that).
Once frozen, warm the sides of your container with the heat from your hands and then pop it out and enjoy!
Okay, my mouth is watering now… :P
Be sure to use plain yogurt, as flavored yogurt has sugar and other things in it which are bad for your pet. Most people don’t care for plain yogurt because of how tart it is, but a lot of dogs love it! If you think it’s too tart for you, try adding more strawberries to sweeten it.
A (long) while back, Jess and Amanda bought some mini canvases to paint pictures of Barbarella and me on. The mini canvases ended up in storage so, we didn’t get painted on them until just a few days ago. We already have a picture of us together that Jess and Amanda painted, and since Jess and Amanda were bored a couple of days ago, we now also have mini portraits of ourselves! I know y’all can’t wait to see them so here they are. You also get to see the steps they were painted in.
This is the original picture that my painting is of.
First the picture was hand drawn on the canvas with a pencil.
Then it was painted.
Same goes for Barbarella’s
This is the original picture that Barbarella’s painting is of.
Drawn with a pencil.
And then Painted.
And here’s the one of the two of us together that was done last year .
Here is the original picture that the painting is of.
Last year Amanda made me a DIY Bandana to wear around the house and outside. And, today I’m going to show y’all how she made it.
What you’ll need:
Flexible measuring tape
Needle and thread
Pins (be prepared it depends on the size of your dog’s neck)
First you will need to lay out your Bandana, then cut from one corner to the other (as shown in picture).
Pick which ever side you want to use and do what ever you want with the other.
Next you need to loosely measure around your dog’s neck and add two inches (my neck is 10.5 inches but Amanda rounded it out to 11″ plus the 2″ which makes 13″), Then cut your bungee cord to the size of your dog’s neck (in our case 13″).
Now you take your Bandana and lay the side you want everybody to see face down. Then, you lay the bungee cord along the top of the triangle in a straight line. If it’s too short (like how mine is) roll the Bandana down to where the bungee cord is sticking out a half of an inch on each side.
Cut your Bandana about a half of an inch above the bungee cord and cut the edges off (not too much though).
Now take your bungee cord away. Fold the top and sides inward (about a quarter of an inch) then pin them down and start sewing.
After you’re done sewing put your bungee cord back in place and fold the top of the Bandana over it. Then pin and sew again.
Your almost finished, all you need to do is Jay clip the ends of the bungee cord together. Make sure to squeeze the jay clip tight.
And you are finished! Now you have your DIY Dog Bandana. You can either lounge around in it or use it as an accessory for when you go out. I hope you enjoyed this DIY project.
