By now it’s no secret that I am definitely that crazy dog person that will treat Crowley as if he was a human child. I’m always looking for presents for him, be it a new toy, snacks, or whatever else I can find. So when I walked into one of my favourite Welshcake shop, Fabulous Welshcakes, in the centre of Cardiff, I was so impressed when I saw they included gluten free Welshcakes, vegan ones and Woof Cakes – which are for dogs!
If you’re unsure of what a Welshcake is then I have a few things to say to you. 1) You’re being deprived of a fantastic food found in Wales. 2) Please go and try one. Welshcakes are basically small flat cakes that traditionally include dried fruits and spices. These days there are several different types of Welshcakes, especially for those that aren’t too keen on currents. If you’re a dog owner, by now you’re probably thinking Welshcakes don’t seem like the best treat for your furry friend and you’re right. Welshcakes you can I can eat contain raisins which are toxic for dogs. Woof Cakes are just plain flat-cakes which contains Welsh butter, free range eggs and wheat flour. Perfect for a sweet snack for your doggo.
Knowing these Woof Cakes were safe for Crowley and having spoken to the ladies running the shop, I decided to give them a go and see if Crowley took a liking to them. Due to the size of the cakes, we split the bone shaped Woof Cakes up and gave them to Crowley when he did something fantastic (like not bark at the bloody pigeons that rest outside our house).
I think it’s safe to say that Crowley thoroughly enjoyed his first taste of Woof Cakes! He wouldn’t stay still long enough for me to capture a picture of him eating a piece of his new favourite treat, but I can assure you the pieces of Woof Cake were in shot a second before the pictures were taken!
Have you guys ever tried Woof Cakes before? Or given your pets a tasty an unconventional treat? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you guys about this. I know this is a bit of an unusual post for me, but I thought my posts lately have had a heavy, serious feel to them which can be too much sometimes. Anyway, let me know what you think of Woof Cakes and if you’d consider letting your furry friends try them!
