Thanks to everyone :) I'm still going to try my hand at making some homemade treats for Lina, but I did find someone to make her a little cake :)

Actually, for anyone that lives in the Peoria Illinois area (I think there are only a couple of us lol) the "barkery" boogaloo told me about is great! They gave Lina a free treat for her birthday (it's on 17th of June) and I ordered a cake from them too. I think it's going to be cute. It'll be in the shape of a bone and everything lol. My grandparents dog will have to help her eat it though lol.

Also, I gave her the cookie they gave her for her bday and she gobbled up the "frosting" that was on it lol. They have other stuff there too. It's just groovy!

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe
Birthday Cake for Pups

I have a site where you can buy treats. I know you want a cake, but ya know, maybe for later? I swear, the food looks so good. Shoot, I wanna eat it! :lol: I think carob chips is the alternative for chocolate.
Here's a site I found on Dogster that makes cakes for birthdays

There are recipes in here
:oops: WOW this may sound stupid but my aunt gives her dog cake and ice cream, peanut butter ,Resees and Dr. Pepper, my dad gives his poodle ice cream and sweet tea, my mother in law gives her dachshund anything (literally) my sis gives her chi's any thing she can . i have often heard that you cant give dogs chocolate cause it will kill them yet when i was a teen i had a cocker and i got about 5 pounds of fudge for Christmas and i didn't put it up and he ate it all and didnt get sick :? I don't know anyone with dogs that doesn't give there dogs sweets every now and then but there dogs never get sick :?: is it just taboo or is there a real seriousness about it? I really think folks would be quite surprised if everyone told the truth about what they feed there dogs :shock: even i am guilty I'm on doctor appt'd diet so i don't eat any thing with sugar or made with flour but porsh like orange's and carrots and peanut butter :oops:
PinkPrincess, have you been to My Dog's Bakery at the Metro Center in Peoria? They have all kinds of home-made treats. You could try that if you are leery about buying some online.
Thanks girls :D I'm gonna see if I can't make my own and if that doesn't work (I'm not that wonderful at baking anymore lol) I'll try to buy.

Boogaloo- I didn't even know there was such a thing in the metro center. But I have to go to Peoria later today so I'll check it out :) Thanks!!
