Paws, Claws, Cookies and Macrina

6/30/24 Paws & Claws adoptable dogs at Macrina Bakery

Macrina Bakery’s Maple Leaf store, which opened to much neighborhood fanfare a year ago, celebrated its anniversary in a unique way: It hosted a meet-and-greet event for dogs rescued by Paws and Claws Pet Rescue. Hoping to be adopted, the dogs met prospective parents in the parking lot. Macrina staff offered decorate-it-yourself dog-shaped shortbread cookies to visitors who gave a donation to Paws and Claws.

My self-frosted cookie looked a bit pathetic – as an art medium, I prefer ink to icing any day – but I had fun trying to capture the pups with my brush pen.

These dogs were waiting with their foster parents to meet potential forever parents.

The pup I decorated myself isn't quite as pretty as the store-made Pride cookie. Both were equally delicious, however.


  1. Great event to celebrate their anniversary! Cute doggie sketches. I'm sure that doggie cookie was good even if the icing wasn't your favorite medium. lol

    1. I thought it was a unique benefit to celebrate their anniversary that way!

  2. My quickly scanning eyes read "Adorable Pups . . ." Only when I looked at it again did I realize it said "Adoptable pups" but they sure are adorable as well.
