NEW YORK, NY - Puppy parties are doing for adorable, oblivious dogs what extravagant sweet sixteen parties did for rich high schoolers. Are they strictly necessary? No, but they sure are fun to watch.
Like this rooftop party in NYC for the dog Minnie. It had beautiful views of the city, a professional photographer, gourmet treats, and a signature cocktail. Sounds nicer than the last human birthday party we attended.
Yes, those treats are human and dog friendly. And that cocktail? It's chicken-broth based. Delicious.
Puppy parties are only growing in popularity. One party goer told reports, "We have gone to quite a few this year. We've had our own. It's almost like planning a wedding to be honest with you. It's a lot of stress. A lot of planning. A lot of money. But we have such a great time celebrating our dogs."
Depending on the number of "guests" and services provided, a puppy party can cost anywhere from $400 to $1500 or more. You'd do anything for man's best friend, but would you spring for a professional party planner to celebrate his Barkday? These loveable pups sure make it hard to resist.
