Things to Do in Chicago with Dogs: Miss M and Mr B Attend the Houndstooth Ball

While the pups have made their way around the city as downtown dogs, walking in parades, and even via boat, one thing still on their bucket list was attending a formal party. Luckily for them, One Tail at a Time rescue holds their annual Houndstooth Ball fundraiser: a dog-friendly cocktail party complete with open bar, silent auction and photo booth.
The pups were excited to 'suit up' and make their big debut for a good cause. Like many a socialite, Miss M made sure to make a smashing entrance: bullfrogging her way through the entrance pulling E behind like her he was on a skateboard.
While it took Miss M some time to contain her excitement, she was eventually able to calm down and pose for photos. She did give out many extra-excited smooches, likely a plot to knock peoples' beers out of their hands so she could sneak a sip (It worked! Three times!).
It was fun being able to dress up, see if our Mr. B could pull off a top hat, and seeing so many other pups in their finery like our friends Eddie, Chicklet, and Detective Munch. 
Our secret to finding 'formal wear' for our big pups: we shop in the human kids' section. 
Miss M is wearing a little girl's tutu and flower headband (designed by Target!) and a tiara from a party store. Mr. B has a costume stove pipe hat, and he borrowed his black bow-tie from E.
We sew an elastic band as a strap to secure the hat and tiara so the pups don't have any wardrobe malfunctions.
One Tail did a really, really good job putting the event together, and we all had such a great time. 
Even Miss M who spent the entire next day looking like this

Mr B is such a gentleman and of course Miss M is still divine! What a fun event that must have been.

So good to see you guys, and really meet the pups in person!! I feel so honored Chick made it onto the blog :) She was also passed out all morning the next day. She didn't climb out of bed until 10am!
