Today Rocky turns one and in order to celebrate we are hosting a small play date with some of his closest dog and human friends.  I know this may seem a little crazy (ok it’s a lot crazy) but I wanted to make his day a little bit special and I think everyone deserves a party at least once in their life, plus it was an excuse for us to eat cupcakes.  I made Rocky and his friends some puppy cupcakes and thought I should pass along the recipe to anyone interested in pampering their pup this holiday season.
