You guys.

Penelope turns one today. *sniffle*

Y’all remember when we brought her home and she was the angriest husky on the block?

She sadly grew out of her angry looks but she grew into quite a character. She is my constant companion and the biggest pain in my booty. I have to zip tie her into her crate whenever I leave the house! She’s that bad/smart. But she’s so lovable and patient with the kids. And I don’t know what I would do without her.

In celebration of her birthday, we made some doggy treats! Peanut butter, oats, honey, all stuff that pups love. And my dogs did, indeed, love them. Clementine (the other dog in my life) gobbled them up and she is usually pretty picky when it comes to treats.

Funny story: I tricked my husband into trying the dough because he wouldn’t leave alone when I was baking yesterday. He wasn’t a fan.
