Abby & Bailey are celebrating their 3rd Birthday today. For those of you who do not know Abby & Bailey, they are sisters that were surrendered at 8 weeks old. We rescued them when they were 5 months old.Instead of making a traditional birthday cake for dogs, we decided to make Birthday Pupcakes for dogs.

These turned out to be a big hit with our dogs. If you make these for your dogs, let us know how they liked them in the comments.
