Helen Turner, who owns a dog grooming business in the UK, wanted to celebrate the birthday of her two Chihuahuas, Salvador and Purdy. So she planned a lavish party that cost over $5000 USD.
Since Chihuahuas come from Mexico originally, she planned a Mexican theme with appropriate costumes, food, decorations, and senoritas serving canapés.
She hired a clown, a face painter, a dwarf, and ordered three doggie birthday cakes for her doggie guests and their humans, many of whom traveled a distance to be there.
And no one protested the party as being culturally insensitive. Maybe because, you know, dogs.
