1 box blueberries

200-250g low fat cream cheese (use those spreadable type in tub)
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp low fat yogurt

Any fruits that are suitable for dogs
Dog treats, eg dog biscuit & jerky 

Preheat oven at 170C, line a 6" round tin with baking paper
1. In a large mixing bowl, using a electric mixer to beat softened butter and honey till well blended. Add in eggs, vanilla and buttermilk mix well. (can use a balloon whisk too).
2. Sieve in the flour mixture and mix well.
3. Pour half of the batter into the baking tin, sprinkle with blueberries. Follow by balance batter and again top with blueberries.
