Christopher Vrankovic from Tewksbury, Massachusetts, recently decided to buy a special birthday cake for his dog's fifth birthday. And in return, we got a glimpse at what pure, unbridled joy looks like.

"She loved it, barely took the time to chew," Vrankovic wrote when he shared the post on imgur.

But Vrankovic told Today that the photo almost never took place. Usually, they celebrate her birthday with something simple, like a dog cookie or cupcake. 

This year, his wife Jackie suggested that order a $20 peanut butter cake from The Barkery. Vrankovic originally vetoed that idea:

"To me it seemed like a very frivolous thing to buy, a custom cake for a dog. Who knew that kind of thing existed?" 

According to Kristi Andrews, who owns the pet bakery Vrankovic used, that was a pretty common thought back when she opened in 2005. But now, she's sold around 11,000 dog cakes to date. The cakes mostly use peanut butter, banana, apple oatmeal, carob and cheeseburgers.

"Nobody loves you as much as your dog. They're always there for you," Andrews added.

Vrankovic says that he eventually caved because before he met his wife, he wasn't really a dog person. Lucy converted him with her happy, goofy, loving personality. "Now I can't imagine my life without her," he added.

And he seems to think it was worth it. "I thought ordering my dog a birthday cake would be a waste of money. Her reaction was worth every penny," Vrankovic wrote on Imgur.

And Imgur commenters seemed to love it, too.

"Always upvote a Berner," one user wrote. "Especially if it's on the brink of going full bork."

Another added:

"Very nice! We also give our dog presents. he loves to find treats hidden in gift bags. We make sure he gets one if someone else is opening."

While a cake for your dog might seem frivolous, they are man's best friend, so it's probably worth it to celebrate them when you can; especially on their birthdays! After all, just look at how happy Lucy is!
