My sister in law raises English Bulldogs and she has a female that will soon be having puppies.
Her dog "Chopper" was going to have to have a C-section so we knew when the pups would be here. We were all so excited and since we had that day off anyway, my husband and I went with his sister to the vets office. (They mentioned they may need a few extra hands to "rub" the pups after delivery so we tagged along). We met them at the vets office and I felt like I should bring something with us. I have always gotten "roped" into making diaper cakes and towel cakes for everyone's showers so I decided to make a funny spin on it . . .
I made a "Puppy Training Pad Cake". I just bought a pack of training pads and rolled them up, one after another. I went to a local pet store in town, Furry Godmother, and bought lots of different flavored treats (they sell them individually in all shapes, sizes, and flavors!). I included chew toys, baby shampoo, bones, and rawhides. I wrapped it all in cellophane and topped it off with matching ribbon. It was so cute!
We carried it to the vets office and we got a ton of laughs about it! She brought it home and believe me, she used those training pads FAST! We made smaller ones and gave them to the new owners of the puppies! It was so fun to make and really brought everyone a lot of laughs!
I had to share it with you guys!
