Tasty Tuesday: Having His Cake and Eating It, Too!

As reported in yesterday's post, Jimmy and I attended our first agility trial since earning our MACH. As I mentioned once before, it is tradition to bring a celebratory cake to your next trial. While it almost seems like ancient history from all the way back in April, this was my first opportunity to bring the cake, so I did!

Of course, there would be no cake without Jimmy's help, so he had to pose with it...

It would have been prettier if I had removed it from the box, but I erred on the side of caution. 1) to save it from becoming covered in dog hair and 2) to act as somewhat of a barrier from Jimmy's drooling tongue!

Of course I couldn't put it out for people to eat with a dog-bite sized chunk missing, so before it was all gone, I saved a slice to bring home.

So here it is!
 Proof that you can indeed have your cake and eat it, too!

This isn't the photograph I had in my mind's eye, but I made three or four tries and each time the bite disappeared so quickly, I could barely snap a picture. I couldn't keep feeding him more and more sugar, so I cut my losses and this was the best of the lot!

Oh, and in case you are wondering, that dark blue icing, once digested, turns a dog's poop bright kelly green! I should have taken a picture of that, too! LOL! Well....maybe not.

Jimmy's breeder, Anne, and her husband drove over three hours (one way!) just to join in the celebration. Look at the lovely flowers they brought me.....

Anne also hand-made me an adorable garden flag featuring Jimmy taking a jump. I put it out as soon as I got home and don't have a picture yet. Thanks, Anne, I love it!


  1. How fun!! Love the cake, very cute!

  2. OMD! That is a great cake and so glad Jimmy got a taste. (Next time, take a photo of the kelly green poop! BOL)

  3. You have every reason to be bursting buttons with pride for yourself and your boys. You do an amazing job as a dog and agility mom!

  4. Hahahahaha!!! Who cares about the cake being in the picture- the look on Jimmy's face as he is inhaling it is priceless!

  5. Congrats. What a great cake. Who has time to stop for pictures when it smells so good.

  6. Seriously impressed that both pups were in the back of the car with that cake and no bites were snitched!

  7. Hahaha! Good for Jimmy getting some of the cake! Awesome accomplishment!

  8. How great that you planned a special celebration. Although I can't figure out what your problem is with dog-hair covered cake. It's the only cake I eat nowadays. :)
