  2. I am very fond of ginger cake, but I suppose I would have to marry you to get you to make some for me. I'm not THAT fond of it.

    1. I've been waiting 13 hours for you to say 'I wouldn't marry you if you were the last old man on earth...' or something similar.

  3. Ginger cake? I wonder if that is like our gingerbread?
    Whatever, I believe that your watcher may need to be watched.

  9. In light of dear Winnie saving Albert's life I think she deserves a slice!

  11. Lucky guy! Winnie wants some too - is she drooling?

  12. Lead her not into temptation, bulldogs only have limited willpower

  14. That dog is devoted to cake!

  15. She is better behaved than every dog we have ever had who would have helped themselves as soon as your cruel and uncaring back was turned. So would our cats.

  16. Winnie obviously shows great focus and concentration . Even a super dog who saves her best cat friend deserves cake.....

  17. Winnie is a lady after my own heart. I like cake!!!

  18. Fingers crossed that Winnie gets a slice of cake.

  19. She ain't no dummy!

  20. Ginger cake? That sounds yummy. Is this a secret family recipe or can you share? I'm guessing Winnie is frustrated that she does have the leaping ability superpower. ;-)

  21. Recipe please? When you consider the scent sensibility of dogs it must be dog-a-licious (and people-a-licious)? !

    1. Sounds very similar (minus the ginger) to what we call a pound cake here...it gets its name from a 'pound of eggs, pound of flour, pound of sugar and pound of butter'.

  23. Winnie is the same colour as the ginger cake. Perhaps she was thinking, "So that's how baby bulldogs are made!"

    ReplyDelete
  24. That face! I know you gave her a nibble!

    ReplyDelete
  25. If I were there, I would be sitting beside Winnie, with the same look on my face.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd be doing the same thing if I was at your house!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Bless her! One of mine used to sit by things the same way and roll her head back at me like seal, as if to say, "Can't you see what I want here? Are you blind?"

    ReplyDelete
  28. Winnie has great powers of concentration and she's dedicated to her task. Could I borrow her to show my high school students what this looks like??

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's a wonderful photo; another one for the mantelpiece methinks.

  30. Go on John - give the poor girl a taste - just a smidgen off a corner - the Prof won't mind !

    ReplyDelete
  31. I bet W's salivating would have given Pavlov much satisfaction - but there's a limit, surely. Go on, give her a bit, and I don't mean just crumbs.

  32. I'm going to have to make one now....it's one of my favourites.....and that is a very...particular... look on her face isn't it? did you have to cover the cake when you were in the other room? was it still standing when you came back in?

    ReplyDelete
  33. but did he share?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love ginger and your cake must be a winner if Winnie's attentions are anything to go by!
    Winnie, I do think you should insist that the next baking session involves a liver and parsley cake! And make sure you get the largest slice.

    ReplyDelete
  35. She's trying all her powers of telekinesis to will it to jump off the plate.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Winnie's Great Expectation! Oh that pretty face....

    ReplyDelete
  37. If I were a dog I'd be Winnie.

  38. From the post title, I thought you were going to feature a hot redhead. Boy, am I disappointed...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Awww ... and here I would have thought ginger too spicy for doggies' tastes ... I hope someone sneaked her a piece ...

    ReplyDelete
