Our 2nd 89iversary: Vegan Dog Cupcakes

If you keep up with 89 or the blog on Facebook, you probably already know that this week we celebrated our 2nd 89iversary.

We'd begun the celebration when I filled her food jar earlier in the month.

In the week preceding, she found one of her presents and disemboweled it before I could reclaim it.

Then, over the weekend prior to the anniversary, we visited with some old rescue friends.

On the day of, there was the (unrealized) threat of torrential rain so we started the day as anyone stuck inside might: by baking celebratory cupcakes from Vegan Miss.  As always, my sous chef:

They came out great, but something was missing.

Yep, FLAIR!  Picked up these adorable and working pinwheels just for the occasion.  Those are quartered Three Dog Bakery sandwich cookies atop.

An extra box was part of her present:

The pinwheels (and 89) in action:

She followed me around as I made every effort to get a great shot of the cupcakes.

Ultimately, she had to be distracted with a cupcake (all part of her plan, I'm sure).

The rest of the day was spent with the things 89 loves.  Arugula, of course.

House demolition:

Neighborhood watch:

Costume changes:


Aaaand, more cupcake consumption:

A happy anniversary indeed.

Think you're ready to commit to a companion animal and have all kinds of love and fun in your life?  Remember: rescues rule, so adopt; never shop.  


  1. Oh my goodness, 89 really is too adorable for words! Congratulations on the 2nd anniversary of her adoption! What a lovely celebration for such a special pup! :)

  2. haha, this is so awesome. I love that she had to be distracted from the cupcakes with a cupcake.
    She definitely looks much happier with the ones WITH the flair.
    Happy 89iversary!

  3. She seems very accustomed to a lot of attention.
