Gromit turns 4!


Every year we celebrate the day that we adopted Gromit from our nearby Humane Society. Since he was a stray and we don’t have any history or background on him we also celebrate his adoption day as his birthday! This year we celebrated Gromit turning four and being a part of our lives for two years!

I made a dog-friendly beef jerky cake for the occasion which Gromit loved. Of course, he only got a very small piece of cake so he wouldn’t get sick - especially since he really doesn’t get “people food” any other time of the year. If you are a little crazy like we are and you want to make your dog a cake, you can find this and other dog-friendly cake recipes at

We also got Gromit a couple of birthday presents, just for fun. He loved his cinnamon roll shaped bone and he tolerates his ducky hooded towel. We’ll see how that goes over the next time I give him a bath!

We are so lucky to have Gromit as a part of our lives. He is so sweet and snuggly and is a joy to come home to after a long day. We enjoy taking him for walks, hikes, camping and bike rides and we think he likes those activities too. Gromit is truly our first child, our fur baby (or baby doggy) and we love him very much! Happy Birthday, Gromit!
