Paw-ty Dawgs: the story behind our hats

Last month, our beautiful dobie furiend, Chloe threw herself a pawty to celebrate her SECOND BIRTHDAY.


  
Chloe, the elegant hostess, politely greeted her guests with poise.




But she really wasn't having much of that hat stuff...

Now, this social event has been well documented in a 6-part series on Miss Creekhiker's blog.  You can read all about it here.

There were hot dogs, and giant cookies. And all of our creek-friends were there.  

yep...pretty vicious...BOL!!!
Here's a picture of me and my rhodesian ridgeback pal, Hank...


And here's his sister, Sue, chillin' out.

We had three rotties, a dobie, two rhodies, an Australian shepherd and Barticus, an elkhound mix.
We all had a wonderful time celebrating Miss Chloe.

We really love our big, extended pack.
Happy Birthday, Beautiful!!


Love,
Bart and Ruby

I think it's so nice that you all get your dogs out and socialize them. Too many people don't and then wonder why their dogs are aggressive..... Looks like a fabulous party and the hats are just the cat's meow... LOL

Wow what an impressive group you had there. All that was missing was a blond Golden.

Great pictures too. I sure wish I could have been there. Our water is too cold now and that looked like a real good swimmin hole
