The Best Dog-gone Party Ever!

I don't know about you, but when I think of a birthday party for a three year old little girl, visions of princesses and Tinkerbell run through my mind...not puppies. However, when given the choice, my little girl wanted a "doggie party". So this is what I did:

Lil smokies hotdogs (served in dog dishes) for dinner
then we watched 101 Dalmations while we munched on dog kibble {muddie buddies mixed with reeses puffs} and dog bones {Pillsbury cinnamon twists- put a knot on each end to make it look like a dog bone}
For her cake we had cupcakes with dog faces- yellow m&m, grasshopper for eyes
fudge graham ears
whopper nose (I used a reese's puff)

This was a party just for our little family, but you could play some fun games like:
*cat, cat, DOG.
*Red Rover
*Feed the dog (turn a cardboard box into a dog, cut a hole where the mouth is, then have the children take turns throwing bean bags).
*If you have the cash, you could buy each child a puppy and put it in the "pound", have them pick out their puppy , making a certificate of adoption for each dog, then set up a vet station and a grooming station.

Then end the party by having the kids bark the "Happy Birthday" song to the birthday girl/boy! Don't forget about the Doggie Bags (filled with dog stickers, a ball, dog whistle, etc.)!
