Happy Birthday, Miss Sophia!

Miss Sophia enjoyed a wheat free version of our Baby Bundt cake for her special day. It was peanut butter cake with carob icing drizzled over the top, and although it took a long time to get there, it looks like she enjoyed it very much.

I want to thank her mommy who runs Jenniebgoode on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop/jenniebgoode) for sharing this wonderful picture with us. Stop by her shop and have a look at some beautiful, handmade collars!

Ciao, Hound

3. post the photo and the story behind it
4. tag five or more people

This is my picture:

Frozen Fog

This photo doesn't really have a story except to say that it hasn't been altered at all. I woke up one morning, stepped outside to find everything covered in frost and a blue hue. It was very eerie, yet peaceful.

And the winner is...

Kelly of AngelPupsCreations!!!

Congratulations, Kelly! You won some homemade dog treats from CiaoHound.

I know this video is very dark, but I got this idea from MsAnomaly (Linda) for choosing the winner. I put a treat in the middle of all of the names and the first name off is deemed the winner.

Thank you so much for everyone who entered! I really enjoyed reading all of the comments. We'll do this again really soon. Thank you also to SassySashaDoxie for this great idea for our blog!
