A Dog-Gone Good Day!!

David and I took our dog, Bichon, a Bichon Frise, to a dog party on Saturday. Bichon's two dog friends, Grover and Rocket, celebrated their birthday parties together, and invited all their little puppy pals! They had a dog cake made with meatloaf and whipped mashed potato frosting, goodie treat bags for all of their friends, and lots of doggie games in the backyard. There were seven dogs total who came, and they all had such a fun time. Each dog got to wear a birthday party bandana around their neck, and the dog cake was served on Scooby Doo plates. It was a riot! The couple who hosted the party, Craig and Carmen, also have a little girl named Lauren, who is two and a half. She thought it was her birthday, and had as much fun as the dogs!

Our family- David, Bichon, and me!

Our gift to the two birthday boys! I made the card, and it was just perfect for the party's occasion! The dogs peed on everything from the slide to the fence- just like they were fire hydrants!

The goodie-bags!

The Birthday poster!

My sweet girl, Bichon.

The cake! (it smelled horrible, but the dogs sure liked it!!)

We spread all the dogs out throughout the backyard to eat their cake. Incredibly, no one fought! They were in hog heaven, let me tell ya!

This 10 week old boxer, Duke, was tuckered out!

Craig and Carmen, the hosts!


  1. That is so funny! Dawson's birthday is this week. We debated on whether to have him a party or not but I think we will just have a family affair and maybe get him a "pupcake" from the dog bakery. :-)

  2. David looks so manly standing there holding a dog in a pink shirt--lol. Looks like it was fun!

  3. You can tell that David is going to be a great dad. He's like my David...a big kid!

  4. Looks like you all had fun. I would have loved to see all those dogs together!!

  5. That has got to be the cutest idea I've ever heard! I'm sure Bichon loved the cake! It's adorable!

  6. How fun was that!? I wish I had a dog... :-(

  7. wow, that looks like so much fun!

  8. This is the funnies thing, any excuse to just get together but thats great. Life is so busy we never have enough time to get together & just hang out. Cute pictures.

  9. Just catching up on some website reading. Looks like a fun party. Love the cake idea! It actually looks good. :)
