|The party decorations|
The theme is the party was The Mad Hatter Tea Party and I tell you - I felt like I had fallen down that rabbit hole myself and into the Mad Hatter's tea party myself! There to celebrate and wander with me were Zoey and Phoebe (the birthday girl and her daughter), Bellatrix (who needs NO introduction), Tiffy (ditto), Noodle and Mochi (ditto, ditto), Spencer B (so HANDsome!), Miss Ellie, Olive, Baloo and Hanna, Marty (he is deaf but you'd never know it), Honor (not a pug but super cool Dalmation), and a few other dogs I never caught the names of.

So a lot of time was spent chatting and chatting and chatting some more. I love all my PUG and NON-PUG pals so much. I only got a little snippy a couple of times. Sorry guys. It doesn't mean I don't love you! Mostly I wandered around talking to the humans and scrounging under the table for missed morsals. Honor took that one step FURTHER by helping herself to a cupcake (or two?) But she is much much taller than I am so it was easy for her to reach the table. In her defense, the food was just about nose level for her. Had it been ME, there would have been nothing left for the humans to eat! I am being honest here. . . Honor restrained herself admirably.
Zoey's Mommy also hired an ARTIST to do our portraits! He was so good and managed to capture all of our personalities on paper. For some reason I do not have my portrait or Olive's. If I find the pictures, though, I will post them at a later time.

Aren't they fantastic portraits??? What a great idea, too. There was also a raffle for really cool prizes and pizza for lunch and cupcakes for dessert. NONE OF WHICH MADE IT TO A PUG MOUTH!!!! I am a little puzzled by this since this was a PUG birthday party. But my mommy brought some carrots and bananas for me (and snuck in a couple of Wet Noses Peanut Butter treats).
Finally it was time to open presents. The main present was super important for Zoey. She is getting a little slow nowadays and her Mommy just couldn't take her on hikes anymore. So some of the gang got her a brand new all terrain doggy stroller! Isn't it da bomb? I can tell Zoey loved it and, pugsonally, I kinda wish I could have taken a ride in it as well.
