Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pupcakes – homemade dog cupcakes made with peanut butter and pumpkin. How cute are these for a dog birthday party?!
If this is your first time here, I’m kind of a crazy dog lady.
I have 3 dogs – you can see them in their Halloween costumes here. They are my constant companions, my co-workers, my hiking buddies, and the greatest source of comfort during hard times.
I’m definitely the dog lady that makes homemade treats (I have an entire category of homemade dog treats), I buy matching holiday sweaters for the dogs, and they all have birthday celebrations every year.
I made these Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pupcakes to celebrate Clementine’s (the little white poodle mix) adoptiversary a couple weeks ago and topped them with some Old Mother Hubbard mini size biscuits and how cute are they?!
I love these mini size Old Mother Hubbard biscuits. My smallest dog is only about 10 pounds so I love the mini size of the for her. Plus, I cant’ get over how cute they are on these pupcakes.
Old Mother Hubbard has been making dog biscuits since 1926. They use all natural ingredients and each biscuit is slowly oven-baked to preserve the natural flavors in the biscuits.
I picked up the P-Nuttier Dog Biscuits and Original Assortment Dog Biscuits at my local Walmart. They also have small size biscuits and a couple other flavor options.

Is Peanut Butter Safe For Dogs
Yes, peanut butter is safe for dogs but check the label before you buy!
Don’t feed any peanut butter that lists xylitol in the ingredients. It will make dogs incredibly sick. I have never come across a peanut butter that includes it but I always like to remind you guys to avoid it.
I tend to stick with peanut butter that only has peanuts listed in the ingredients. No added sugar or oils or anything like that. I figure it’s healthier for the dogs and humans in my house.
