We Salute You, Cupcake

Saturday after the parade found us busy making cupcakes for a cookout we were attending on Sunday.  We enjoy making fancy desserts for events that we attend.  I do have to say that I think they turned out pretty well.

Of course, someone thought we needed some snoopervision.  She hasn't stolen anything in a while, but if you recall last time we had Roanoke Days, she is a master thief.  Her favorite thing to steal is hamburger buns, but she doesn't limit herself to that.  She's stolen chicken off plates, chili cups from the trash, an entire roast and made attempts at stealing a pie.  So, her interest in what we were doing with the cupcakes was a cause for concern.  We watched her like a hawk while we were in there working on decorating the cupcakes.

Well, bedtime came and it was turn out time for the girls.  Mr. Taleteller took the girls outside and I was busy with something on the computer in the living room.  A few minutes later, he brought them in and the girls trotted into the kitchen to line up for their bedtime treat.  Then I heard Mr. Taleteller yelling Blueberry's name as she ran to the living room with him, Bunny and Lilac in hot pursuit.

Yes, she'd done it again!  She snagged a big, fat unfrosted cupcake that Mr. Taleteller was saving for himself and took it right to her dog bed.  He took it away from her with a glower.  Bunny batted her eyelashes at him and gently wagged her tail.  Lilac peered up at him with a look that bespoke of eternal devotion.  Mr. Taleteller sighed and tore the cupcake into thirds, giving a piece to each of the three happy girls. 

Blueberry, this round goes to you!

  1. YESH! Doggies need to have cupcakes. Didn't you read the directions on the box? It says all doggies get a cupcake. Go read, it's right there on the box!

  2. Wilf understand exactly.Cupcakes - as found in the wild. An essential source of trace elements for all dogs seeking a healthy balanced diet. Only a third of a cupcake each ? And without frosting ?

  3. What's da big deal? They is no choc in them. Ok, well, I don't get hooman food soooo....
    And of course, I really can't reach too much of anything either. At least ya'll is eye level with your counters. mind sticking one of those in with da ice cream and whatevers else I ordered? They do look very delish.

  4. All dogs need a cupcake once in a while - we usually get one for our birthday. our leggies are too short to snag one off the counter.

  5. It is so good that Mr. Taleteller saw the wisdom of giving the cupcake to the greyhounds. For one thing, all greyhounds look like they could use some cupcakes to me. They are so thin. They all look like runway models who we all know don't get enough cupcakes.

  32. If Blueberry and Tucker got together, the entire human-food-eating world would tremble.

  33. A girl after my own heart! Unfortunately for me but very fortunate for mom and dad, I can't counter surf. I have been known to snatch something off a dinner plate that was sitting in a humans lap.....I'm a quick one!
