My little puppy, Lacey, turned 1 year old on July 19th, 2011. To celebrate this grand occasion, I threw a puppy party which involved my friends bringing their dogs by to socialize and play with Lacey. I also made doughnuts for people, pizza treats for pups, and treat bags for puppy mamas to take with them. Here are some pictures from the fun day!

Lacey had 4 pup friends join her for her party! (Sydnee Joe, English Springer Spaniel; Lilly, Malti-Tzu; Astra, Peekapoo and Lucy, Pomeranian)
Here are a few pics of the crazy birthday girl who was soo excited and happy at her party!
Lacey LOVED this new bully stick she got and became obsessed with it, as Mariah warned me Lilly does as well!
Overall it was great to catch up with good friends and let our dogs play together on the patio!
Here is the recipe I used for Lacey’s pizza puppy treats!
Pup Pizza, Adapted from The Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook
1 c. oat flour
1 c. brown rice flour
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 c. part skim milk ricotta cheese
1/2 c. water
1 6oz. can tomato paste
1 c. shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
Preheat oven to 375degrees. Combine all the dough ingredients together and mix thoroughly until a dough forms. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4in. thickness. Use a round cookie cutter or the rim of an upside down glass to cut 2″ round circles out of the dough. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet (they can be rather close together as they don’t grow much while cooking).
Spread the tomato paste evenly on top of all the circles.
Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese, basil and oregano on top of each.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. But have your puppy sit for a treat first!
