The Baker Whose Dog Cake Was Pregnant With Meaning

A customer said she was having a baby shower. She asked us to make a “shower” cake. (One of our specialties is dog cakes that look like cakes people eat.) There was a special purpose for this cake: She did not know the sex of her baby and wanted it to be a surprise. Sooooo, she said she would bring me the envelope with the results of the sex of the baby directly from her doctor. She ordered a double-layer cake and wanted the internal icing to indicate the sex of the baby. When the dog begins to eat the cake, the sex of the baby would be revealed! — Todd Ruppenthal, Happy Husky Bakery, Evanston, IL

WE ARE A pet supply store and a pet-friendly coffee shop. Our signage clearly states that. We even have a sign right on the door that says “Pets Welcome.” Our window displays are all dog-centric, so what we do is very obvious. We had a lady walk in one day. She started heading to the coffee shop side and saw two of our dogs just hanging out. She huffed, turned on her heels and said quite loudly as she started heading out, “Well! I’m allergic to dogs!” I don’t know where we sent a mixed message that there would be no dogs on premise, but apparently that is what she expected! — Wendy Megyese, Muttigans, Emerald Isle, NC

A LADY CALLED saying that she was in town to celebrate her husband’s major birthday. For his birthday, she wanted to hire a groomer for her husband because he was into “role playing.” Although my staff and I declined the invitation, I did give her a price to rent out my business after hours. I never heard back. — Leel Michelle, Bow Wow Beauty Shoppe, San Diego, CA
