who let the dogs out?!!

last friday, lala had a puppy party for her birthday. she invited 10 puppies to her party and 8 showed up for a total of ten puppies (nani and lala included). we had a full house...of puppies. and boy did they play the part well!

when they arrived to our "doggie day care" to the sounds of "who let the dogs out", each puppy was asked to choose their puppy name, which we wrote on a dog tag for them. we had a fifi, a fluffy, a nana, an ally, a nathan (which was actually this puppies dad's name), a seahawk, a kukui, a sally, an ethan, and an aidan. after getting their dog tags and a puppy treat, they picked out ears. once they were outfitted with their puppy dog ears, they went to the table to make a dog collar for their name tag, which they wore around their necks. as they were making their doggie collars they were also getting their "spots". here are our two puppies, nana, the birthday puppy and ally, her sister:

we played "trainer says" and rewarded the puppies who obeyed the trainer with a doggie treat. we also played "doggie, doggie where's your bone?" after lala blew out her birthday candles:
each of the puppies were given a pup-cake in their very own doggie bowl:

some of our puppies really enjoyed eating their pup-cake chow:




it was so fun to witness imaginations run wild at the puppy party. what child doesn't like to pretend to be a four legged creature?!

happy birthday "nana"! what a great party! we love you!

what an adorable party. I hope you didn't have any puppy accidents on the carpet.

Mahina said...

merilee,

fortunately, no, we did not! the puppies were all house trained! in fact, that was one of the requirements for a puppy to attend!

It was a fun party, but mercifully short. I only say this because of the short night before, (getting things ready for the puppy party)

Okay Mahina, I've heard you say too many times that you aren't creative. Stop it. This is so dang adorable I don't even know what to say.
