Birthday Boy

A dog licks his lips while surveying his birthday cocktail.

Over here at the Pandemic Pub, we love dogs. We especially adore our dog, Pabu, and the little guy just had a birthday!

Of course, our pack planned a little something. It involved a cake that Max and his friend Finn baked and frosted. Nice job, guys! In case anyone has their own furry friend with something to celebrate, you can find the Spoiled Dog Cake Recipe (possibly the most descriptive name in the world!) here.

Pabu also had to look the part! Dapper as ever.

And, of course, we made him a cocktail. It took a bit of thinking to come up with a new flavor. Though as Elizabeth has pointed out, he’d be perfectly happy with the tried-and-true. I thought this one would be extra-special because of the meat and peanut butter combination. In case you’re wondering if that’s something only a dog could love, have you ever had a peanut butter and bacon sandwich?

Go try that right now. I’ll wait.

We’d made Beyond Burgers the night before, and I saved the pan grease for this guy. In the past, sometimes we’ve put a little bit over his food, but this time it was reserved for his special cocktail. A little peanut butter to go with that, and some milk to thin it out.

Officially, it was a vegetarian cocktail, and I guess I could’ve had one with him!

Anyway, you can see what a good boy Pabu was, being very patient while salivating over the prospect of his cocktail. Happy Birthday, Pabu!
