Treat your pup this Valentine’s Day by making a Milkbone Apple Pupcakes! Easy to put together and easier for your pooch to eat, this recipe is well-loved!
For those of y’all who have been reading this blog for a little while, you should know I have a dog. (And this blog is named after her… kind of.)
She’s been my girl for six and a half years, and I love her so very much. So many things have changed since she first came into my life. We’ve moved several times; she’s adopted a father, who she adores, even if she wasn’t a fan of him at first; and she’s going to become a Big Puppy Sister in just a few short weeks.
Despite all the change, she has remained constant.
Our lives would be so different without Lucy, and we do our best to make her feel special and loved as often as possible, especially since we think her early months were challenging.
Today is one of those days.
In preparation for Valentine’s Day, I wanted to do something sweet for Lu.
Enter these delightful Milkbone Apple Pupcakes.
I also grabbed some Pup-peroni for my sweet girl while there because she loves those, too. As we prepare for our baby’s arrival, I know we’re going to keep a stash of puppy treats by the front door so visitors can give Lu a little something before they enter our home and meet Lady Baby.
This recipe is so easy to whip up, and since it makes a small batch of pupcakes, you won’t have a ton of leftovers sitting around.
These pupcakes are extremely soft, so they’re something that is easy for your pup to eat, too! You won’t have to worry about them attempting to eat the entire thing in one bite and having a bit of trouble getting it down.
Here’s how you can treat your pup this Valentine’s Day:
