Lupita’s Closet Pet Boutique and Spa in The Falls shopping center had its first “Howloween” party this year and it was a spooktacular!
Pets of all breeds and sizes ranging from 3 to 20 pounds came to enjoy the wonderful festivities. All in all about 50 guests plus dogs attended the party creating a packed house, but the staff at Lupita’s Closet enjoyed meeting all the new friends.
In attendance was Lupita as well as her partner in crime, Joepee, who came as a witch and a police officer. Among other puppies that attended were some close friends: Papi the Chihuahua, Hans the Biewer Terrier a La Pon Pon, Bebe the Long Hair Chihuahua, and Vera the Yorkie. Everyone came dressed to impress — even some owners.
Lupita’s Closet started the afternoon with a hearty welcome to all the pets and owners and the socializing and games began. The first game was Bob 4 Bones and the idea behind Bob 4 Bones is much like Bobbing for Apples but instead the dogs would attempt to rescue a bone from the bowl one at a time and if they succeeded they get a healthy treat. All treats given are from Lupita’s Closet and are of high nutritional value containing no corn, wheat, soy or by-products.
The second event was Scavenger Hunt where treats are set out around the room. Four dogs go at a time and the dog that finds the most treats out of the group wins. Winners each received special treats from the doggie gourmet line that consists of peanut butter with yogurt topping which are delicious and all dogs love.
At Cake Time, humans were served pumpkin cupcakes, Halloween sugar cookies, Hawaiian Punch and chips. Dogs had a dog friendly cake made by Doggie Gourmet in a cute Halloween Pumpkin design with purple and orange frosting.
Then came the Halloween costume contest for people and dogs. There were eight categories in which there were eight separate winners. There was sexiest costume, scariest, most original, funniest, cutest, etc. Everyone who attended the party left with a doggie and people goody bag filled with fun and exciting treats for everyone.
