Apollo's 21st Birthday Bash! head is still aching from all that partying we did at Apollo's 21st birthday bash (3 human years=21 doggie years) at Oliver Winery!
(Did anyone spot Flat Puglet in this pic?)

Just LOOK at how beautiful this place was!


Holden spotted some GIANT koi in the pond!

HEY! I know these Puggies!!
Do you see Yoda, Lilo, Pugsley, Lola and even Flat Puglet?
I spent some quiet time with my man Pugsley, but we stayed away from the click of the Pawparazzi lens!

I smell FOOD! Come on...let's hit the CANINE food table!!!!

OOOHHH...cheese shell stuffed with pate! YUM!

Carob dipped strawberries!

Even Doggie WINE from Bark Vineyards! (it looked eerily like salad dressing!)
Mmmm...I found the Pinot Leasheo to have a very fruity "nose" with a nice crisp bright finish but on the OTHER paw...I also enjoyed the full big seductive notes of fresh herbs and nice long dark finish of tart dark red cherries with the Barkundy. (Can you tell that mom was a total Wineaux in a past life? Hahahaha)

There was a special cake JUST for us doggies!
That's Flat Puglet peeking over the side!

Feed me mommy!

I had so much fun hanging with my Puggy friends and their are some pics of everyone (sorry if we missed a lot of you...seems we got a bit lazy with the camera later on in the party!)

Mom with DixieBugg
They were discussing a future "Da Bugg Gooroo" posting!

Mom holding DixieBugg (again?), Apollo the birthday boy, and then Kelly with Harles and Sophie

Here's Good 'ol Boy HANK...he bought Apollo his first BEER (since he's 21 now!).
"You see kid...this here faincy beer is called 'HinieSniff'n''s not yer everrday drinkin' beer like PBR!"

Lilo was there looking very FESTIVE in her pretty Punchy dress!

Molly O'Mally was looking FABULOUSLY fetching in her sweet pink frock!

Here's Holden with Sophie(he calls her "My Soph"! Awwww!)

I sat with Aunt Sarah and showed her some love and my pearly whites (since she's a dental hygenist and all....)

Of course mom had to totally MANHANDLE her buddy Pippin....
He's saying "GAAAAH...LADY....YER CHOKIN' ME!!!!"

AND the rest of the Pug Posse too!

Here's Cindy with her Yoda sitting on Bernice (the Alien of the Posse)

Mike had Brutus on his lap and was trying to get him to tell him National Security secrets by bribing him with chips...
Mom says Brutus looks like he "knows stuff". Hmmmm.

Apollo's dominatrix girlfriend, Maggie was whispering dirty talk sweet nothings in his ear

The poor birthday boy looked like he had to fight to stay awake to open all of his presents!

Mimi couldn't believe how nice and well behaved all of us puggies were (DUUUH!) and she had to get a pic of the Pug Posse walking out to their Pugmobile with Vikki and Denny!

Here they are all loaded in!
Ok...let's hit the road!!!

I was SO tired for the ride back home! I snuggled with Mimi in the back seat and she rubbed my ears until I fell asleep in her lap!
ZZZZZZZZZZZZ....I'm taking 2 Tylenol and having some tomato juice and going back to BED! Happy Birthday Apollo Buddy! We hope you had a great time at your big bash! WE sure did!

Becky said...

great pawty! Is Apollo really 21 in dog years. I've never known a pug to be that old. My aunt's was almost 17 when she lost him.

Salinger The Pug said...

Hi Becky!

No...Apollo is 3 in human years, (which according to whomever decided that 1 human year = 7 dog years means he's 21).

Puglette said...

That Pinot Leasheo is gooooood stuff!


Sequoia & Petunia said...

Wow Mom is so jealous you have all those puggy friends so close that you have amazing parties.

You all looked like you had tons of fun!!

Stubby said...

Sal dude - I totally missed the party of the year! I was so excited when I received my invitation but then Mom burst my bubble when she told me she had to attend a wedding that day.

It looks like you guys had a great time at the party and the foodables looked great.

Stubby xoxo

Becky said...

Just nevermind my previous comment. I had my brain switched to the OFF position! I thought he was mighty young looking! Plastic surgery, ha ha!

Wilma said...

Hey there Sal,
What a party. Looks like you all had a blast. I am definitely going to have to insist on this type of gala next year for my birthday.

Apollo said...

I'm so glad you were there, Salinger! And your family too! It was awesome meeting Mimi as well! Celebrating with all my friends made it the best birthday party, ever!

Love ya (in a straight way)!
~ Apollo

P.S. Jami here - Laura, your wine descriptions were hilarious!

I loved all the pugs in the car. We threw Magda a birthday party last year and she was afraid of the cake. She thought it was some sort of trick we were playing on her and wouldn't eat it.
