A Golden Spring Fling

Spring Fling 1 thek9harperlee.com

After this completely miserable winter, the first day of spring yesterday called for a serious Golden-style celebration with my friends The Big Dogs–Sunshine, Maggie, and Kenai.

No doggy spring fling is complete without a pretty cake, so my human mommy and I headed to the kitchen and I supervised the baking of our pawty cake. (Many thanks to Wear.Wag.Repeat. for the spectacular cake inspiration, which was part of a recent Tasty Tuesday blog hop. Click here for the recipe.)

We cut the cake and waited for our guests to arrive.

I wish that I had photos of us actually eating the cake, but it was so absolutely fabulous that we inhaled it.

Hey, Maggie, I’m licking my lips back here. Did you leave a little crumb on your plate for me?

Looks like Sunshine was licking her lips too, and searching for crumbs on more than one plate. That’s ok, because Sunshine is the momma dog and she can do anything she wants to do.

Meanwhile Kenai, the only boy dog, found his special blue plate, ate every bit of his cake . . .

. . . while the girls made their way to the door in hopes that another cake would spring through the door. Here’s hoping that your first day of spring was super special and that you feel the gift of a fresh start from Mother Nature.

    we thoroughly enjoyed our spring pawty, the cake was delicious! We were so exhausted from the festivities that we settled in for a very long nap when we got home and didn’t even start our “give me my dinner” growls until about 6:30. Thank you for being such a good hostess!

  3. What a beautiful cake for your spring party. Looks like it was a big hit.

    • It was a really, really perfect day. I think that beautiful senior face belongs to Sunshine. She’s the momma dog. She has that beautiful Golden sugar face and a perfect puppy heart. We all really, really love her.
