About the book...
When Samantha relaxes into her new role as a dog mom, finds a circle of friends in her new hometown, and sees her new dog bakery Canine Confections barking up business, she’s thrilled that things are going so well … until she hears a bloodcurdling scream from the pastry shop two doors down and runs over to find a dead body on the floor.

Suddenly Samantha finds herself in a race against time to find not only the thief who is stealing from the upscale shops, but a murderer, too. Samantha’s Lab-Mix Sweet Pea wags her tail through all of the clues, suspects and shenanigans. Both Samantha and Sweet Pea are aided in their amateur investigation by the other shopkeepers on the elegant Worth Avenue, and Samantha finds the suspect list growing at every turn.

To make matters worse, Samantha’s old boyfriend arrives in town, and mysterious people start showing up at the Sophisticated Pet and New Age stores nearby. Samantha soon finds that things are not what they seem, and she must figure out what’s going on—or become the next dead body on a bakery floor.

Includes an original recipe from the world-famous Three Dog Bakery!

Easy Homemade Dog Cake 

I found this recipe on It looks delicious, doesn’t it? Remember, when baking for your pooch, it’s imperative you know what food your dog can and can’t eat. 

This easy homemade Dog Cake is a peanut butter cake perfect for your pups birthday! 

Prep Time:  10 minutes 
Cook Time:  20 minutes 
Total Time:  30 minutes 
Yield (1)  6-inch cake 
Serving Size1 cake 



3/4 cup flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/4 teaspoon baking powder 
1 large egg 
2 tablespoons peanut butter 
2 tablespoons oil 
1/4 cup applesauce unsweetened 
2 tablespoons honey 


1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 6-inch round cake pan (or a 9x5-inch bread pan) with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray. 

Stir flour, baking soda, baking powder, peanut butter, oil, applesauce, egg and honey. Pour into pans. Bake 20-30 minutes, until browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting. 

To make frosting: beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. 

Frost cake as desired. You can double the frosting recipe and torte the cake (cut the cake in half horizontally) to make it a 2-layer cake. 

Store covered in refrigerator for up to 3 days. 


Please use your discretion when it comes to feeding your dog. I am not a vet nor am I a doggy nutritionist. If you think your dog is allergic to any of the ingredients please take caution. This cake has been enjoyed by many dogs just fine - but use your knowledge of your dog and your common sense when feeding. 

I wonder if he’ll share with you?
