8th February was Mika’s birthday! And once again she gets her annual home baked birthday cake. This year it was banana & peanut cake with cinnamon cream cheese icing which she didn’t really fancy. I shall revert back to the carrot & peanut butter cake with cottage cheese icing again next year!

Couldn’t celebrate Mika’s birthday on the day itself because of work schedule so we did a belated one with close family & brought her to Kallang Park for a nice stroll. Mika was treated with steamed broccoli mixed with stewed pork for dinner & birthday cake for dessert! She was one happy pooch that night…

I simply love Mika’s face when we have the birthday cake in front of her as if she knows it’s her special day & she can eat it! It’s different when we have her with human birthday celebrations! Well, another year has passed and she’s 4 human years now. No longer a puppy but still a puppy in my eyes!

Love u my little Mika!






P.S. this is the dog cake recipe which Mika didn’t like:

Banana Peanut Dog Birthday Party Cake
2/3 cup ripe mashed bananas
1/2 cup softened safflower margarine
3 large eggs
3/4 cup Water
2 cups unbleached white flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)
In mixing bowl, beat together mashed banana and butter until creamy. Add eggs and water. Beat well. Stir in dry ingredients. Beat until smooth. Add nuts. Spoon batter evenly into oiled and floured bundt pan. Bake for about 35 minutes. Cool on wire rack 5 minutes, remove from pan, replace on rack and cool.

I’ve been trying so hard to look for THE canned dog food that Mika will love. Tried so many brands for my sweetie but she seems to get sick if it after 2 days and the rest of the can has to be given added treats like cheese, fresh meat, dehydrated chicken etc for her to want to eat it!

This week, I opened a brand new can of “Black Forest Rabbit & Blueberries” from Addiction and she simply loves it! The whole can of food is finished by her willingly without coaxing & she looks forward to meal times. Not only that rabbit meat is lower in calories which us healthier & its grain free formula has blueberries! I love blueberries & so does my Mika! Rich in anti-oxidants good for my doggie…

If you have a picky eater, maybe you should try Addiction?

Hello Peeps!

Today’s Mika’s puppy day! 8 February. Time really flies and in a blink on an eye she is 3 (or 21 in doggie years). Little adult doggie refusing to grow up!

For her birthday cake recipe (really simple!) here it is for all those who wanna bake a treat just for their paw friends.

1 cup flour

1/3 cup honey

1. Whisk the flour & baking soda together until evenly mixed
2. Put in the rest of the ingredients into the electric mixer
3. Mix well
4. Place dough into a 6 inch baking tin – well oiled & lined.
5. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for 30 minutes
6. Icing – cream cheese & peanut butter

Mika’s Italian Meatballs
100g of minced pork
1 heaped tablespoon of Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons of mixed Italian herbs
A pinch of pepper
1/2 cup of shredded carrots

1. Put all the ingredients into a bowl & mix well with a fork
2. Roll the mixture into 1 inch meatballs
3. Pan-fry the meatballs quickly till outside is lightly browned

Mika And Her Blind Date!


Mika went on a blind date 2 weeks back to meet handsome Vivo! It was a rainy day so plans changed from having a romantic date at Marina Barrage to a nature meet up at the Botanic Gardens.

Mika: “I’m so excited meeting my second male Shiba. Will he be my potential mate? I wonder what he will be like? I hope he’s a looker and has good character! Hmm… But I can’t seem so eager when I see him. I must play the game and be slightly aloof! Great! That’s my plan.”

So when Vivo first arrived – he was late for his first date. (minus points, but I shall forgive him since it’s raining) Mika was very shy and took some time to warm up to him. But when she finally warmed up, they played ferociously and it was totally adorable! Chasing each other around and play fighting. Vivo is really big sized and Mika looks soooo tiny beside him! But Mika is more feisty then Vivo even though there’s a big difference in size!

Vivo and Mika had great chemistry and she’s looking forward to meeting up with him again! What a great start!

Here’s some photos of their blind date! I’ll post up more when I get others from another camera.
