Polling My Friends in Blogland...

Remember, I live in Small Town, USA, so some things that are permissible and "normal" in bigger places are simply not here.

Which leads me to my question...Tyke (if you don't know who Tyke is by now-you haven't been reading my blog very long, but he's my Papillion puppy and you can scroll down my blog and to the right to see his adorable picture) turns one on Oct. 19th and I've been entertaining the idea of having a Halloween themed "Puppy Party". I know, I know...some of you are laughing and even scorning me, but hear me out. One of my friends did something similar for her pooch in Oklahoma City. I was trying to make a list of people that I know that have small dogs or well-behaved large dogs and I thought I'd poll them too. I absolutely LOVE Halloween and decorating my house for it, but I'm too intimidated to throw an all out adult Halloween party, so this way it's like I get to do a scaled down version of what I'd do for an adult party complete with a dog-friendly birthday cake. And I've found some of THE CUTEST dog costumes. We could have a costume contest for the dogs, too...

What do you, am I a complete nut job that loves my fur baby a little too much? *LOL*

Sounds like a dog-gone good idea to me. I could never get Tiger the Wonderdog to go for gettin' all gussied up for a costume party.

What a fun party and just a little different than the neighbors Halloween parties.

Have a good one!!!

I think that is an adorable idea. One of the NY housewives did but not for Halloween--it was a birthday party. Have fun xoxo

Ha! I definitely vote YES:-) My sister thought I was nuts for having a bday party for George's 1st birthday last year, but she came anyways and even brought a gift! Here is George's party post: http://livingroomsandlimes.blogspot.com/2009/02/happy-birthday-george.html
