Celebrating Doggie Style: Tobie's Birthday Puppy Party


It's kinda sad that the turnout for Tobie's (a puppy) birthday party was far superior than any b'day shin-dig I've ever organized for myself. On Saturday, a couple dozen of Tobie's (the b'day dog) and Cira's (the b'day dog's owner) closest human friends and dog acquaintances gathered at Cira's apt. to celebrate Tobe's 6th/42nd birthday.

To get into the canine spirit, we headed to Party City earlier that day to load up on dog-adorned decor (a wall mural, banners and hanging mobile depicting frolicking puppies, a regal-looking tinsel crown for Prince Tobie, doggy bags--get it?!--and a rainbow crepe-paper disco ball thingy too festive to pass up.



By the time I arrived bearing organic chicken'n'liver flavored dog cookies (Happy Birthday Tobie! please share with your puppy roomate Guyb), the puppy party was already in full force. Many pooch-lovin' party goers were already well on their way to being fully tanked thanks to Tracey's 100% proof plus Sangria and beer (humans), and pig ears and raw hide galore (the menagerie of Shi Tzu's, Malteses and Weiner dogs).

The rest of the pups








Although the bulldog-themed wall calendar came a close second, I'd say the giant pig's snout puppy treat was won for best/worst birthday present.


Tasty seven layer dip, super-potent sangria, interesting conversation about satanic sadist current events, "bawls", a couple of ill-placed deuces and pee pees (Nugget!) and pig snout snacks--Tobie's celebration into his 42nd dog year was nothin' but high class all the way.

hey, pepper's first b'day is coming up in a few months right?
yes, if you're going to indulge in a puppy-oriented party, the key is alcohol!

Being Tobie's grandma I wanted to thank you for giving him this coverage. He really thinks he is a SuperStar. And in our family he is...Guyb is the best too.

oh hello mama sims! yes I'm a sucker for both Guyb and his teeth and Tobe's patented tilted-head, "aren't I adorable? now give me some of your food" pose :)
