Dog party delivers

Happy Birthday, Ben Bailey!

The birthday boy, Ben Bailey

A few days ago I attended the most delightful dog party -- actually, my first dog party. Our neighbor, Rosemary, executed a perfect party for her Golden Retriever's 10th birthday, and invited me over to help take pictures. Guests included five other dogs and six kids. You might think this was a recipe for chaos, but everyone behaved beautifully.

Each dog got its own dog-friendly cupcake, made by Rosemary.

Rosemary's husband, Dick the Dog Whisperer,
helped seat the guests at the patio table.

This is the photo op Rosemary had dreamed of for months.

the goodies!
Best table manners were evident throughout the party.

Rosemary's granddaughter helped Ben open presents.

"Wow, that was a good party, huh guys?"

Guests take their leave -- with a little help.
(This puppy is only 1 year old.)

Robbie -- It was really fun. Rosemary outdid herself.

What a fun party and great pictures! I love the one of all the dogs sitting at the table. They were obviously all well trained and well behaved dogs.
