Thread: Dog Parties

    Wow this is so different when a lot of people here say that you should never put dogs in peoples clothing like they are just dogs and don't operate like us.
    So to this I honestly think that dog parties are well overboard, and this is us just doing our best to humanise them even more.
    I know this is not going to be getting any thinks votes on it. What it will get is people telling me to get a life.
    I understand that this will happen but there is no way I would do this for a dog. They just don't understand what the fuss is all about.
    This is way too much of an attempt to make our dogs humans and it will never happen.
    Sorry but I just had to reply in the nevitive just in case others were too scared to get yell at by you all.

    You view is understandable Rid and has a lot of logic behind it. The party apect of celebrating a birthday is indeed humanised but the dogs enjoy getting together with their doggy friends and eating food. The decorations and fancy food are more to appease the human guests.
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    I am not into dressing dogs up...we just have newfie days, where a whole heap of like-minded people come along and let all the newfies have some fun together. newfies seem to recognize newfies and we let the whole lot off lead together. It is really all about relaxing with dogs

    Rid,

    Who cares if people like to humanise their dogs, at least their dogs are looked after.
    for one I like the 'parties'because its an excuse to have some socialisation for the dogs, they get mentally stimulated if you decide to play games etc.
    Each to their own... you say that they have no idea what the fuss is about... neither does a 1yr old or 2yr old child yet parents still do it.

    A dog is a dog in my books and it is as simple as that.
    I really don't care if you want to have parties for your dog in the wash of it all.
    But I for one would never do it as I see it as a waste of time and money.
    It is totally your choice to do it.
    I just don't agree with it.
    And I actually take care of my dog, so I don't know where you came to the
    fact that I don't care about him.

    +1. I mentioned it was Kimbas Birthday the next day and they wanted to have a party for her just like we do for our other family members.
    My birthday was just before it so we had leftover decorations so it didn't cost us anything, except for food but I was going to feed the kids that day anyway..lol

    I didn't see it as a waste of time either. The kids had so much fun and the dogs lapped up all the attention they were getting.

    Rid, I don't think anyone ever mentioned that you don't look after your dog???

    Each to their own, I'm glad I can celebrate Leo's birthday with fellow friends and dog lovers! I don't consider it a 'waste of money'... money doesn't need to be spent. Its all in good fun and if we want to do it then that is a ok... for those who don't, that is a ok too!!
