Hermes went to his very first doggie birthday party! It was such a fun time with lots of dogs, lots of balls, and lots of shenanigans by his truly. (Bet you can't guess who?)
This is Lola, and she had lots of doggie friends to help her celebrate her first birthday. I'm telling you, this girl knew it was her day. She pranced and played and made sure that everyone was greeted in style and brightened the whole room with her infectious smile.
The dogs had so much fun playing fetch and chasing after each other. One dog even threw the ball to another like they were practicing for the big leagues! I'm not kidding, it was awesome!
There were lots of toys to play with, yummy human treats, and the most adorable treats for Lola's doggie guests.
Remember those shenanigans I was talking about? Let's just say his name was said pretty much every time I looked up from my camera.
Hermes those treats are for the guests!
Hermes, that's not your mom!
That's not your mom either!
When the dogs were tired from all the fun, Lola's mom wanted to get a group picture. It was a little tough, but the dogs were making progress. Quite a few of the dogs knew how to wear hats and "stay" for the picture (and one photographer's dog flat refused).
After quite a bit of shuffling around, some of the dogs thought that they deserved a treat (probably for wearing the hat) so they decided to go find their owners. Others just laid down and waited it out.
In the end there were a few who were willing to say, cheese. . . (seriously, Hermes.)
No worries, Hermes was led off to the side and we got a couple of shots to commemorate the day.
Happy Birthday, Lola! I hope you celebrate all month long!
