Dog Life Chose Me: Bark Happy ‘Love Your Dog’ Party
We’re here to review Jax’s first social event of 2017 (he says it’s been way too long). Bark Happy hosted another cool party in Denver, the Valentine “Love Your Dog” Party. Similar to the Barks and Brews party (which we featured here), proceeds benefited the MaxFund Animal Shelter.
Jax and I ventured to the Mile High Mutts Doggie Daycare for the party. We were welcomed to the huge doggie daycare—Both the inside and outside portions had huge spaces for the pups and dogs to socialize and frolic around. Of course, Jax did the majority of the excited and energetic socializing and frolicking. Guests were treated to ice cream from The Bear and the Rat. Jax tried out their banana flavor and really enjoyed it! If you pup hasn’t tried their products, check your local vendor (I even spotted them in Dayton, OH over Thanksgiving!). As the pups were playing, there were a variety of raffles for various treats. Tons of fun!
Next, Jax met with Danielle from DC Photography Denver to take pictures in the Valentine’s Day themed photo booth. She was extremely patient and kind as Jax scampered around. Her pics were gorgeous and captured his spirit well! Please check out her work on her Facebook link above.
The afternoon ended with a cheesecake eating competition! Dogs gathered up by size (small, medium, and large) in different sections of the daycare. First, there was a trial run—Jax didn’t do so well. He took his time licking the frosting and tasting like a true foodie! Dog parents collected the second round of bowls for the prize round. As you can see, Jax didn’t look very focused (or maybe he was sizing up his competition). Bowls down and…Jax won!!! He gobbled the two pieces of cheesecakes up in seconds. We were rewarded with two bags of treats and a Chipotle card. *High five* Everyone went home with a swag bag of various treats which Jax has been enjoying (i.e., devouring).
As usual, Jax had a great time at this Bark Happy event. Socializing is what he does best. Download their app to see view events in your region. Can’t wait for the next one!
