Recipes for a Dog Birthday Party

Come Party With Me: Annabelle's Birthday — Menu

FabSugar's delightful mother has volunteered to do the food for Annabelle's birthday party. Fab has requested a classic barbecue and some dog-friendly dishes. To get things started FabMommie will serve her excellent shrimp and pea salad. I tried it at the Bedazzle Bonanza and it's insanely scrumptious. Next she'll make two kinds of sliders: one for the people guests and another for the dogs in attendance. The first is an outside-in white cheddar cheese slider. The second is a combination of ground meat, cooked rice, and yogurt.

Before you serve this recipe, be sure to consult your vet and find out if the ingredients are appropriate for your pooch. Does this menu sound interesting? Get the recipes now.
