Humphrey's 5th Birthday

Cute dalmatian dog wearing birthday party bandana.

Our cheeky little weasel is a big boy of 5! Time goes so quickly. Our Facebook furfriends and Instagram pawpals got a sneak peak at Humphrey's barkday in last week's posts, and here are some photos from his birthday with the family and then extra barkday fun the following day with his bestie, puppy playmate super dooper Cooper. Here's all the details on our celebrations, with full recipes and DIYs to follow through the week.

Oli's 13th Birthday (Plus Surf'n'Turf Dog Birthday Cake!)

Wowzas! Our beautiful boy is 13!  Thanks for all the social media love and birthday wishes you've shared with Oli for his birthday. We're always grateful to celebrate another milestone together, but after Oli's medical emergency last year and Tiger's recent passing, we've been feeling extra mindful and thankful this time around.  Now that our little blogging breaktime for Easter celebrations and ANZAC Day commemorations is past, we're back with photos from Oli's barkday and the details on our latest crazy cake: a doggone droolworthy surf'n'turf layer cake!

Humphrey's 4th Birthday + Layered Lambcake Recipe

Meatloaf dog birthday cake with potato frosting, cranberry decorations, and candles

Woohoo!  Handsome Humphrey is four and all grown up. Where does the time go?  Did you see the impatient posers in my latest "milestone mugshot" snap?  Oh those rascals!  Sigh. Our Facebook furfriends and Instagram pawpals got a sneak peak at Humphrey's 4th barkday in last week's posts as we we took a month offline here on the blog to focus on recovery following Oli's health scare. And now, thankfully the whole furfamily is still together and we're back on the blog. And we have CAKE!

{RECIPE} Banana Beetroot "Red Velvet" Pupcake Dog Treats

Red beet muffins on a blue polka dot table with a card saying "A party without cake is just a meeting"

These doggy muffin treats are delicious, dense, moist, and a deep dark "red velvet" shade thanks to a yummy (and healthy!) combination of carob and beetroot. We don't often do doggy cakes here other than barkday parties, but I couldn't resist working on a velvety red pupcake recipe and here it is in honour of our third blogiversary! Three years ago (after much encouragement from folks who knew about my crazy treats and toys) the dogs got their own blog and the makings of Dalmatian DIY were born. Thanks to all of you who have joined in our crazy antics along the way, opened your hearts to Oli and Humphrey, and been part of our blog and social media world. We look forward to creating and sharing more in years to come.

Our baby is (almost) all grown up! Humphrey celebrated his first birthday in style last week,along with his adopted "brothers", Oli (who has done a great job of mentoring and tolerating a puppy!) and Tiger (with whom he has reached a cautious truce). It is hard to believe that he was ever quite this small:
