    Adventurous pups never pass up a good time so when we had the chance to sponsor a pooch in the Wiener Dog Race at the Menomonie SummerDaze Festival, the answer was YES! Our team looked fabulous in the bright shirts and our racer, Ella, was ready to run in a When Pooch Comes To Shove party hat and cape created by crafty pawty trainer, Jessy.

    Ella strutted her stuff in the costume contest then got down to business as she prepared to blow the competition away with her speedy little legs. Running in multiple heats, the crowd had a great time watching these adorable dogs racing down main street.

    She may not have won the race, but this little girl is always top dog in our hearts. Can she be any cuter?!? This little lady and all the other racers definitely earned themselves a gift bag full of goodies from WhenPoochComesToShove.com. We put together the perfect summer treat bag in our Hot Diggity Dog party theme, complete with decorated water bottles and a bow tie, a Bark Bar treat and gift certificate for their own pooch pawty.

    A special thanks to Main Street of Menomonie Inc. for the fun evening and Custom Ink for the marvelous shirts. We KNOW that cape gave our pooch super hero speed.

    When Anna's furbaby turned one, it was time for a celebration - a Hot Diggity Dog Party that everyone would want an invite to. For Pollyanna's first birthday party, Anna hosted a sausage fest that got all the neighborhood dogs drooling. From her epic grill-out to local brews and of course, custom dog party decorations, the event was a success. Everyone enjoyed the sunshine, the food and the fun - especially Pollyanna!

    4th of July celebrations are just not for your two-legged friends, include your pooch and their four-legged friends in your party. Have special treats, games, and refreshments for the dogs to enjoy. The dogs and their owners will have a blast celebrating together.

    Free Printable 4th of July Dog Treat Tags

    I used free printable 4th of July tags from our partner, BigDotOfHappiness.com to decorate treats for the pups that will be attending our 4th of July party. I bought different types of rawhide sticks that I slid through the tags and will use them as décor on our buffet until the pups are ready for a snack. I also used the bottle tag available on the printable to decorate dishes for the buffet table. Check out BigDotOfHappiness.com's blog for more 4th of July party ideas, we love what they did with their blue chevron and red chevron designs to decorate a 4th of July party.

    4th of July Dog Treats

    Bark Mitzvah Dog Party

    It is so exciting to see a new trend, and even more fun when it is for our furry friends! One of the latest dog party trends is Bark Mitzvahs, or holding a celebration for a dog’s coming of age. This mirrors the Jewish traditional Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah that is celebrated when boys turn 13 and girls turn 12. Bark Mitzvahs are not necessarily held at a certain age for dogs, however many occur when the dog turns 13 years, 13 months, or 2 years old (close to 13 in “human years”). The celebration can range from a traditional ceremony in a synagogue with a dinner and reception at a banquet hall to just a blessing given and a party at home.

    During Bark Mitzvahs, dogs may wear a tallit or prayer shawl, and some male dogs may wear a yarmulke or thin traditional skullcap. Some dogs may simply wear a Star of David dog bandana, or a fancy collar or bow. The color theme is typically blue, silver and white. The party itself is just like any other party with invitations, decorations, favors, games, and great food.

    Bark Mitzvah Dog Party Table

    While WhenPoochComesToShove.com and BigDotOfHappiness.com do not have an official Bark Mitzvah theme, we have a great concierge service where any theme’s colors can be changed. For all personalized items the font can also be changed. There is even no fee for this great service! I changed the Chevron Boy Bruffday Theme from navy, blue, white and orange to the Bark Mitzvah colors of blue, silver and white. And since so many items come personalized, you can have the text be anything you would like – puppy showers, bruffdays, or in this case a Bark Mitzvah! You can even celebrate your other furry friends and have a Meow Mitzvah!

    Decoration Kit DIY Ideas #PoochPawty #PuppyParty

    My mom loves to save some money but always want so put on a great pawty for me and my furry pals.  That's why she got so excited when she found these Centerpiece Kits from WhenPoochComesToShove.com. With 1 large centerpiece, 2 scalloped circles & stands, and 36 confetti pieces, the possibilities for are endless on how mom can make my pawty YOU-nique for me!

    1. Rosette Fans are a Breeze // Dress up a simple tissue paper rosette by hot gluing a few pieces of confetti in the center. It helps to carry the them around the room and adds a punch of color!
    2. Dress Up Your Drinks // With a small hole punch, turn your confetti into themed hang tags and add them to your glasses with some twine. It's all in the details!
    3. Pin It Details // Take a mini clothespin and attach the scalloped confetti to your napkins. This simple detail can also be added to favor bags or other goodies too!
    4. Divide and Conquer // Split up the stand and the accordion centerpiece to get more bang for your buck! Add a few piece of confetti around the base of the stands to help fill in some table space.

    Mom was able to decorate the whole party under budget and it everything looked pawsome! The centerpiece kits made is so easy for mom that she had a ton of extra time to spoil me with love!

    Already this summer in Wisconsin it is HUMID and I can’t stand it. I feel so bad for our old little fur ball, Lulu! The kids and I were with Lulu outside this weekend trying to enjoy the weather but unfortunately, Lulu looked sad and miserable. Seeing her so uncomfortable got me wondering about what I could do to help her out with the heat. I read a few articles and googled a few things and I learned a lot!

    Did you know that early signs of heat stroke in your dog are weakness, confusion, excess panting, increased salivation, dark red gums, and seizures? Scary! So,  I found a bunch of ways to keep that from happening and to keep Lulu cool.

     

    Lulu keeping COOL Lulu keeping COOL

     

    1. Keep your dog well hydrated with fresh, cool, water
    2. Keeping your dog in a well ventilated, shaded area or shelter
    3. Give your dog their own little tub or share kids pool of water to sit or play in (See a Dog Pool Party Here)
    4. Make your own frozen dog treats(Recipe Here)
    5. Limit your dog’s activity on very hot and humid days or play on the grass rather than asphalt
