July 14

I never thought the day would come, but it did. Today is my first birthday! Tad and Fig came over yesterday, and we started the party then. This was going to be an exciting day!
We went on the deck to eat the frozen frosty paws and they were better than I even dreamed. Some of you wanted the recipe, so here it is:

32 oz. plain yogurt, 1 mashed banana, 2 T p'nut butter, 2 T honey

It’s true dairy products aren’t good for dogs, but yogurt contains much less lactase than regular milk and the live cultures are great for your dog’s digestive system. This dog ice cream recipe is delicious and good for your pet!

Mix all these ingredients in your blender, then dump into ice cube trays, paper cups, or even a kong toy to freeze and serve.
My nose fit right inside the cup, and I licked and licked and licked.
Tad even had one, and he never gets anything but dog food and carrots to eat.
The frosty paws were easier to eat out of the cups, so we dumped them out and moved to the grass to eat them. Fig took a great big bite, and then this happpened.
Tadman stole the frosty paw! And then he got mad when Hannah wouldn't let him eat it. It's a good thing I have self-control, or this might have had an unhappy ending.

Frosty paws are great on hot summer days. If you haven't tried them yet, you should. Ask your moms to make some!

Happy birthday, Petra. I asked my mom if I could go to your house for Frosty Paws but she said Chicago is far away. I offered to drive but she said I'm not old enough and that I would speed.

Stanislaw said...

I got confused by the date of your last post...


It's about time Tad got something other than kibbles and veggies, huh? Plain yogurt is just about my most favorite thing! Next comes peanut butter. Homemade frosty paws are a feast of deliciousness unparalleled by any other! I sure hope my folks plan on whipping up a batch for my birthday!

July babies are the best aren't they?!! Happy celebrating!!!

Happy Happy Birthday, Sweet Petra Girl!!!!!!!!

Can't believe you are already 1 year old. You seriously don't look a day over 6 months.

I'm so stinkin' excited that you were born, and that you got to have Tadpole & Figgles for newphews and neices.

Looks like a happy day at Casa de Petra!

Extra juicy goober smooches to you for your birthday!

Goober love,
