What We Do For Our Four-Legged Friends...


Or... what we make them do for us!

Yesterday was my dog Vito's 10th birthday. Getting into the spirit, I decided to have a party with doggies and adults. For some reason Vito loves Bichons and Havenese, so his close friends were there to celebrate. My friend Lisa generously donated her house for the festivities!

Forgive Vito's bad behavior...


$27 (yes, $27) for an organic dog birthday cake from a dog bakery. Hope they enjoyed it!

little treats for the guests

"Oh, please take these silly hats off of us!"

"Are you kidding me?" -Buster

Speaking of dog parties...I had to share this cute "dessert party" that Kristy of Posh Pixels Design Studio created for her new adopted puppy, Ozzy.


The theme was “Meet the Puppy,” to introduce Ozzy to her family & friends. There was "doggy" food and "people" food.

So beautifully done...

Biscuits & rawhides for the puppies, candy & treats for the humans...


How creative is this?

For the humans...

For the dogs...

Love that party! So talented!

Are we silly? Yes. We love our animals so why not spoil them? They give us so much joy and unconditional love!

That is SO cute that you had a party for Vito's 10th year! He is adorable and reminds me of my sweet Mimi who is in heaven now.

I now have Georgie who is a little darling but not very social. He has just a few BFF's that I could invite so I will consider this idea! I LOVE Havanese dogs. Was there one at the party? I did not see one.
Tell Vito he does not look a day over 8!

okay that is so cute!! Lucky Vito! Am I am laughing about the "bad behaviour" photo. I was about to say something crass like "anytime there is humping at a party it's bound to be crazy" but I won't ..... ahhahahah
just kidding!!
My poor Lucky dog doesn't get any happy birthdays, we don't know his birthday but i guess we should pick one and give him a bone or a walk in the park or something. I'm a bad doggie mama i guess. thanks for the inspiration to get me to step up my act. :) Happy Memorial Day today friend! K

Dear Lynn,
I think that Vito is the luckiest dog in the world. That party would be good enough for the Queen of England. He had everything there.....maybe the only thing missing was a doggy stripogram !!!! haha. XXXX

I'm a total dog lover, and we shower our little pug with lots of love daily, but of course, we go all out on her Valentine's Birthday!

Vito looks so happy and loved! What a fun party!

Bisous,
