Dog Party to order!
Meet Lexie, she recently turned one. Rather than enjoying a little extra fuss, or perhaps a chewy bone - she celebrated in absolute style! She spent her special day in her Manhattan apartment - decorated with a multitude of coloured balloons, she was lavished with dog friendly cakes, enjoyed an abundance of cocktail sausages, all in the company of her 15 closest canine friends!!
Yes this is all the rage in the city that never sleeps - nor do the dogs! It is not unusual for doggy party guests to receive party bags, often offering a host of gifts - from designer doggy blankets, to homemade 'pup cakes!.' And yes all of this is all considered as perfectly normal!
So normal in-fact that Dorothy Moore has set up business, specialising in party planning. Not for you wedding, or daughters 18th, but for the furry member of the family (not your other half) the dog! She will provide the food, the music, the table-cloth, the invites, she will even source and stuff your party bags, with the latest must have pooch accessories!
She is doing very, very well! Prices range from a reasonable $100 to in excess of $500! She says that the latest trend in doggy parties is the 'princess theme'...yes you can go the whole hog, one can rent tiaras, pink decorations and lest we forget hire the 'simply fabulous' pink limo'!
It seems Ms. Moore is not the only one cashing in on pet owners seeming insanity (or surplus cash!!), there are more and more bakeries opening in the 'Big Apple', not the sort you and I frequent, no...we are of course talking Dog Bakeries! They will take orders for birthday cakes, to feed pooch and ALL his furry friends, or, if you fancy going organic, will make you doggy a dish from scratch for every day of the week!
