Today, The Morning Show celebrated Claudia Marques' dog Patch's 7th Birthday!
While Claudia plans to spoil him silly at home (he's her 3rd child after all), we asked our callers what are some of the most over-the-top ways they've celebrated their pets.
"My dog gets a birthday present & a Christmas present every year & she's part of our Christmas card. She's family ❤️"
"We celebrate our pet birthdays with picking up something special for a present, making a little wet food cake and singing, 'Happy Birthday'. They're part of our family and love an extra treat 💗"
One caller shared with The Morning Show that they bake their pet their own carrot dog cake at home! Here is the full recipe, courtesy of Kristina:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ cup natural peanut butter
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- ⅓ cup honey
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 egg
- Extra peanut butter, for frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×4-inch loaf pan. Whisk together the flour and baking soda. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then spread additional peanut butter on top for "frosting".
A yummy treat for a very special birthday boy!
Happy Birthday Patch!
