How to Eat Leftover Birthday Cake

My mama made me a two-layer German chocolate cake for my 31st birthday.

I eat it for breakfast.

You know what tastes great with absolutely any chocolate cake? Coffee!

In case you’re wondering, the specific coffee in question is coarsely ground fair trade Guatemalan coffee from Kansas City’s own the Roasterie. I French-pressed it myself this morning.

I also eat my leftover birthday cake after dinner.

You know what goes great with German chocolate cake in the evening? Hawaiian beer!

I am totally obsessed with this beer right now. I discovered Kona Brewing Company back when my friend Kenton and I visited Maui in 2008. In just the past month, the brand has become available at our neighborhood liquor store.

There are three other varieties available, but the Aloha Series Koko Brown is my favorite. It is brewed with toasted coconut.

Clearly none of the decadence on this page is suitable for canines to share.

But the non-screw beer caps do require the help of party dog Luke and his super handy bottle opener DIY collar accessory.

DIY Collar Accessory for Party Dogs

Tell me if this has ever happened at your house.

Someone arrives with a pack of beer. Maybe it’s super special handcrafted brews, from the Lagunitas (which has a pit bull on the cap), Boulevard (Kansas City-based, yo) or Deschutes breweries. Maybe it’s Corona.

Either way, you can’t crack the seal on those bottles without an opener. And dang if you can’t remember what happened to your bottle opener.

Solution:

Turn your dog into a hooch pooch.

It’s easy. All you have to do is find a small bottle opener with no sharp edges and a keyring attachment. Then, you attach it to his collar.

Ideally, your dog won’t even notice that he’s wearing an extra piece of bling.

And you will always know where your bottle opener is. In fact, it will now come to you.

Always eager to please, Luke enjoys how being a hooch pooch makes him an even more popular guy at the party.

However, since canines can’t consume alcohol, this golden party dog is hoping someday someone will show up with a bottle of Dawg Grog just for him.

Have you ever attached something functional to your dog’s collar?

There’s still time to enter the Love Note Valentine giveaway.
