It was Penelope’s first birthday last week. March 23, to be exact. So naturally, we had to throw her a little puppy party complete with a puppy birthday cake and a Guinness chocolate one for the two-legged guests. There were also puppy cupcakes to take home as party favors and, of course, a little photobooth. Thanks everyone for coming out to celebrate our baby’s first year (and sorry for the little extra excitement that was certainly not planned).

^^Penny treated the human guests to a steak dinner with mushroom toast and creamed spinach on the side.^^
^^The cake and cupcakes for the pups were from AnnaBee’s in Pacifica, and Brendan convinced Miss P to have the Guinness chocolate cake, as well — recipe here.^^
Penelope, you are the sweetest little thing. I love that there isn’t an ounce of mean in you (even if you have a ton of naughty to make up for it). You let your sister win at everything in return for getting to bite her heels. Fetch and frisbee may not be your game, but I hope you never lose your eagerness on jogs and that your tail never learns to stop wagging. Here’s to year two and the hope that you learn a better recall and that you think twice before approaching the wrong dogs. We love you very, very much!
