I have always wanted a dog. Growing up, my brothers and I would pine for a pet to play with. And visiting our family members with dogs was almost torture! In December 2020, Michael and I were getting married. And we decided that a dog would be a great wedding gift to one another. And then we found our breeder on Instagram and paid the deposit before he was even born. Now we’re celebrating Bucky’s 3rd birthday already!
Before we knew whether we’d get a male or female dog. And before we even knew what we would name him. This little boy was a piece of our hearts we didn’t even know was missing. I still remember having to choose him from pictures and videos on Instagram (thank you, COVID). And our puppy name list was growing by the day. When it was our turn to choose, we narrowed it down to two boys. And our family voted for Bucky! Bucky was even his given name from our breeder. But I didn’t fall in love with the name until he was sleeping in my arms on the drive home at just 7 weeks old.
Bucky Boo: you are quite literally a dream come true. I’ve accomplished plenty of things and experienced love in the best ways. But being your guardian and your mama is my greatest accomplishment and the realest of loves I’ve ever had. You make daddy and I so happy. And you are the best Emotional Support Animal an anxious girl could ask for. Happy birthday, my baby!
I knew I wanted to make this day a little extra special than previous birthdays. So I found a great recipe for a dog-friendly cake with icing and everything! Here’s the recipe if you’d like to try it or you can click here to view the TikTok video I followed:
Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Let cool before adding icing. And the recipe for the icing is just 1/4 cup peanut butter and gradually add plain greek yogurt until you’re satisfied with the consistency. Bucky absolutely demolished the cake. And had the cutest zoomies afterward! Let us know if you end up trying this recipe. Happy birthday, Buckaroo!
