Happy Birthday Dave!!

Today is Dave's 9th birthday!  Last year, both he and Duncan were gypped (I had to look up how to spell that) out of birthday celebrations (I was busy packing this time last year so Dave missed out and I was on a plane to CO this past December on Duncan's birthday).  In the past, they have each received a 'store' bought birthday cake from the local pet bakery, but that gets a little spendy and there are an abundance of recipes available on-line, so this year, I decided Dave would get a home-made cake!
 Happy Birthday Dave!!  :)
 They both exercised self-control for these photo ops (taken last night)...and were rewarded with cake 'samples' from the pieces carved out of the sides to make the bone shaped cake...
Peanut Butter Carrot Cake for Pooches:
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
1/4 cup of natural peanut butter
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1/3 cup of honey
1 cup of shredded carrots
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350* F.  Grease an 8x4" loaf pan.  Mix together the flour and baking soda.  Add remaining ingredients and mix until everything is well-combined.  Pour into pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  "Frost" cake with peanut butter if desired.
