And it’s not as magical as you think. Say it with me. Puppy. Party. That’s right. It’s a real thing and I am living proof of it because I was lucky enough to be invited to one last week. Was it magical? Kinda. Was it perfect? No. Here’s why:
I showed up expecting a bundle of perfectly clean, cuddly, purebred golden retriever angels rolling around delicately on a soft linen sheet playing and licking and running towards me in slow motion, just like a Charmin toilet paper commercial but that’s not exactly how it went.

I walked toward the front lawn to find an old, sun warped tarp, a random display of matted, smelly, almost full size dogs, and a bunch of poop and pee being wiped up by an agitated puppy party employee. Yeah, not as cool as you thought, huh? Here are some good things about it.
- It’s great for kids
Kids aren’t judgmental. They don’t pay attention to the little things and they definitely don’t care about poop and pee.
- The dogs were really sweet
…despite being kind of weirdly grown and stinky.
- People were genuinely happy
Who can be in a bad mood around a bunch of little doggies?
- It’s definitely entertaining
I literally stared, held, hugged, kissed, and stroked the pups for over an hour. The time went by REAL quick too.
- It’s good for the dogs
They’re training them to be around humans so they can get adopted.
- It’s not as expensive as you think
It was a little over 100 bucks for an hour and a half. Not bad.
So was I obsessed with the puppy party like I thought I would be? No. But that’s okay! It was pretty great and I can say I learned a thing or two about these pooch fiestas. Paw-ty on puppy lovers!
