The Furball Turns 5

I know, I know he's not a kid but he is my buddy so I had to get him a present, he loves canned dog food. :)

I will find any reason to cook and Cosmo's birthday was no exception.
This cake was very simple and while it was baking I even wanted a piece! It has peanut butter, shredded carrots and honey in it. The frosting wasn't sweet enough for me though, but Cosmo loved it!

He tried really hard not to sit by the cake for the picture since I was telling him to leave it alone. 

Dave cut him a slice and he had that eaten within 30 seconds!

He searched every inch of the floor for little bits and pieces

I am glad the furball is in my life, and hope he is around for another 10 more birthdays! :)
