While looking for my special doggie cookie cutter in the cupboard the other day, I ran across a bag of old memories. When one of my son's was young, he had a Sesame Street birthday cake and I had saved the cake toppers from it. There in the cupboard over the stove where my little used baking supplies are kept, was the bag with Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster and Big Bird. While some things change, others stay the same and children today seem to enjoy Sesame Street and the characters as much as they did when my kids were little. The doggie biscuit cookie cutter was another memory. Amazingly I had remembered it was up there. I had never baked dog cookies before but I had the cookie cutter from when my kids were young. They used to have Scholastic Book Fairs at their elementary school and one year one of the boys had chosen to buy a Clifford The Big Red Dog book and it came with a dog biscuit cookie cutter which I stored away in the baking cupboard for future reference.

Linda, I've saved my son's cake toppers too, and his "age" birthday candles. Ha...ha...what I'll do with them I'm now sure, but I can't bear to throw them out!
