Like me, my dogs are homebodies. Jelly is dog bed-ridden while Bubba and Lulu…don’t play well with others. Oh, sure, Jelly enjoys her daily half-block walks. Bubba loves his trips to the farmer’s market. And Lulu may be ambivalent to other dogs, she likes nothing better than to meet people. And so, when I heard that the local French Bulldog Meet-Up group was having a birthday part for one of their own, I thought it might be a great opportunity for Lulu to get out and socialize.
A rundown of the festivities…
Her M.O. is so predictable. The first thing she does when she gets through the park gate is to hop onto the nearest bench and crawl onto someone’s lap.
Partygoer at the refreshment stand.
The hostess brought refreshment for the adults – and loot bags for the kids!
And, of course, cake.
This handsome fellow wanted to make sure I got a shot of him for the society page.
Vino, the birthday boy.
Lulu does the weird sloppy-slidey-shuffle whenever she’s on gravel.
Laid back reveller.
Sniffing out trouble. And cake!
Lulu making the rounds. She’s always go that “Yo, lookit me, bitches!” expression.
Oh, yeah. Who’s gettin’ some?
Always on her best behavior when treats are involved.
I would have put Lulu’s hat on, but she’s got such a small noggin’ I was afraid she’d paper cut her eyeballs.

Akemi makes a new friend.
After some hard partying, Lulu and friend seek the comfort of the shade.
Lulu subtly hints she’s done.
