I can’t believe my first boy is 10.  Meet The Cooper Dog (Cooper T. Dog Esquire).  He is my first boy. My fur baby. He hangs out with me all day and keeps me company.  He has been featured on a number of my cards and is generally a good sport whenever there is a treat involved.  Those big brown eyes pretty much know exactly what I’m thinking.  He’s quick with a kiss and a cuddle and tries to sit on my lap because he thinks he’s a small dog.  He knows when I’m feeling down and won’t leave my side if I’m hurt or need comfort.  He is my very best friend.

As is tradition, I made Cooper a doggie birthday cake to celebrate! Here is the recipe I used if you’d like to make one. I also created personalized cake toppers (and his little birthday hat sticker!) using Places for Faces!
