“It tastes just like cheesecake,” she said laughing.
She was, of course, referring to dog frosting – the dog frosting she had whipped up from scratch to decorate her homemade banana pupcakes.
Frosting them was the last step in a process that had taken most of the day. She had also made applesauce treats and pumpkin bones.
She was getting ready for the last week of her read-to-a-dog program until the summer session.
It’s always hard to say good-bye to Gus and Mimi, Ozzie, Odie, Grace, Finn, Cocoa, Love, Koda and the other dogs who have become such good friends.
I adore every dog who has ever taken part in Books and Barks – their humans too, and the caring librarian who facilitates this program that I have no doubt, helped my daughter learn to read, and has built her confidence and fluency in a way that has never been stressful or hard.
