Coconut shells are better toys than anything in the world.

Coconut shells are better toys than anything in the world.

Basically, this is all Sumo does these days.

So,  for Poochi’s 3rd birthday, a cake was in order,  and since there are no bakeries that make pup cakes, I decided a homemade cake would be best. Poochi loves carrots, and we’re vegetarians at home, so carrot cake seemed like the best option!  So here’s what I did

I used:
1 egg
50 g sweetened condensed milk
60 ml olive oil
50 ml honey 
135 g shredded carrots
120 g whole wheat flour 
5 g baking soda

To make the cake:

1.Preheat oven to175 degrees C.
2.Grease a small cake tin (I used a 6-inch square tin and the cake was hardly half an inch tall) 
3.Combine the egg, condensed milk, oil, and honey, in a large bowl and mix well. 4.Stir in the carrots and mix thoroughly. 5.Sift in the flour and baking soda and incorporate into the carrot batter.
6.Pour the cake batter into the greased tin
7.Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes at 180 degrees C
8. Once done, let the cake cool in the tin for 10 minutes. 
9.Turn out the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Voila! Once the cake cools completely,  you can make an icing of icing sugar and water and coat the top.

So, the pugmonkies have taken up PuGa(pug yoga). Puga effectively consists of occupying the yoga mat after the pug-parent finishes their routine. Then you pretend to stretch and instead curl up on the mat, and be cute. Classes are starting soon. Watch this space to know more about Sumo and Poochi’s PuGa classes!

Today was bath day for the pugmonkies. Of course, being older and more fussy, Sumo has graduated from loving bath day, to trying to avoid it completely. Poochi, au contraire, loves it. All the pre-bath brush down, dental hygiene routine and the intense scrubbing and massage during the bath. Not to mention the floral body spray afterward.

Being super hot here, around 38 degrees Celsius (despite summer not having set in) the boys loved the bath, and I left them moist after a towel dry, so they could cool off a bit more.

Now they’re both knocked out, and fast asleep. Time for MY bath now!
