Pupcakes for Cupcake

Pupcakes for Cupcake


Our sweet rebel Malshi, Cupcake, turned 3 doggie years old so of course we made her cupcakes because well, it is after all her namesake. She celebrated her day with lots of extra cuddles, yummy treats, and an extra long play session... in the mud! Which for this little white fluff ball is quite the big deal. 

We have found that while there are dozens of recipes for canine goodies, many of the cake and cupcake variations involve some combination of peanut butter and carrot which works out well because the rebel house is always fully stocked with both. Cupcake shared her birthday pupcakes with her dog friends, but for her friend Stella who is allergic to dairy, we frosted her pupcake with peanut butter. 

We love you so miss Cupcake!


Tis The Season For Giving

When we heard Tomo Kadono’s story from our friends at Friends Furever Pet Food we were immediately moved. Tomo was a healthy, active, dog loving 29-year-old, on September 29 he suffered a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. With the love and support of his friends and family he continues to make progress daily, but still has a long way to go.

Kumo and Kilo are Tomo’s beloved dogs, who mean the world to him. We always do whatever we can to put a smile on someone’s face, so when we learned about Tomo’s story we knew he needed a custom portrait of his pups to hang in his hospital room. And so, Kumo and Kilo can now be with him everyday, right by his bedside to remind him how much he is loved.

Our thoughts, prayers, and love go out to you Tomo. For more information please visit his website at

Social Style


Diesel is our 9 month old Doberman. Despite his ginormous size, he is considered a puppy which means we are still working on socializing him and getting him used to the great big world. He has proven to be somewhat skeptical of new people and situations so subsequently he is rather shy in public. We, however, are determined to make him love and trust people so we continue to take him with us wherever we go.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday we took him on a 12-hour road trip to visit family and for an energetic little troublemaker, he actually did quite well. We took him shopping in old town where he made lots of new furry friends and met tons of people, and we have to say, we were ever so proud of our brave little buddy. How cute are his new little friends?! 

Have you encountered any issues when socializing your dogs? We are finding, just like people, every dog we get has a very different personality than the others. Needless to say we are learning a lot and loving raising this pack of rebels!

**Diesel is wearing the Diesel Collar, size 15" - 17" and a Rebel Tee, size XL.

Pumpkin Dog Treats

One of the most seasonally anticipated treats is of course pumpkin pie. So as Thanksgiving neared and the number of cans of pumpkin in our cupboard continued to grow, we decided the only fair thing to do was to bake pumpkin treats for our rebel pack. Pumpkin is very good for dogs and helps with their digestion, so not only are these dog treats yummy and seasonal, they are healthy too.

Bone appetit!
