A farewell gathering to a friendly neighbour brought some folks from my old apartment building together - now this is the good life: having a sense of community - good friends, good food and cute dogs who entertain us with their antics.
In honour of Warren's farewell I made these dog-face cupcakes of each of our dogs (well, unfortunately Scarlet wasn't included) and chocolate topped extras that, well, kinda made me think of something else they could look like ... ha ha!
Here are some of the dogs ...
Chelsea and Luna (Golden Retriever)
Duke (German Shepperd/Hound)
Bette (French Bernese)
Baxter (Black Lab)
Pepsi (Poodle mix)
As a gift the community gave Warren a collage portrait of all our dogs, a beautiful keepsake for his family.
