You might consider this to be something only a crazy dog mom would do, but color me crazy because throwing my dog a first birthday party was some of the most fun I’ve had in months. And, to be honest, I did it all for under $50.
Eight months ago, I adopted my sweet fur baby Jack. When I rescued him in May, he had a limp and after several x-rays, they discovered his leg couldn’t be saved and now he’s my sweet little tripod!
Now, he’s my perfect little companion and I’m so happy he came into my life when he did. And that’s why I through him a first birthday party.
Not only is it a huge milestone, especially given all of the hardships he’s been through medically, but also because I wanted him to know how much I appreciate him and all he’s given me! So just how do you throw a dog a birthday party? Well, this is what I did.

All you have to do is combine one cup of flour, two-thirds cup of each pumpkin and peanut butter until it forms a dough. Then roll it out and use a cookie cutter in the shape of dog bones before placing them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and cooking them for 30 minutes in a 325-degree oven.
