Lupita Conchita is "almost 15 in dog years," and to celebrate, her owner threw her a lavish quinceañera.
Miranda Sanchez rescued the Chihuahua when she was just two weeks old, likely after suffering from abuse. Sanchez found her in the middle of the road, and "I knew I had to take her in," she told Today Pets. A quinceañera is a traditional celebration for girls when they turn 15, and for Lupita's, Sanchez decorated her grandmother's Corpus Christi, Texas, backyard with streamers, glitters, and twinkling lights.
The guest list included 20 friends and relatives and seven dogs. "All the girl dogs were dressed up in little dresses, it was adorable," Sanchez said. "Lupita was in hog heaven." The menu included a personal cake for Lupita and catered barbecue, "because Lupita loves ribs," Sanchez said. "So all the dogs who like barbecue got a rib." None of the dogs left empty-handed, either — Sanchez gave each one a goody bag on their way out. Catherine Garcia
