Petworth Truly Loves Their Dogs…and Star Wars – Happy 7th Birthday Kingsley!!

by Prince Of Petworth February 9, 2016 at 11:05 am 22 Comments


“Dear PoPville,

Every February, I have a big birthday party for my Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Kingsley, and invite Petworth dogs and their humans to come celebrate.

Last year I had 22 dogs in my row house! All are well-behaved, mooch at the treat table (I bake organic biscuits for them), and have a blast tearing open a piñata filled with more smelly dog biscuits.

Each year there’s a different party theme. This year it’s Star Wars, since Kingsley’s turning 7.

(I will also mention here Kingsley is a National canine agility champion — the only dog in Washington, DC with that title!)”

Ed. Note: While this might be a bit unusual, this is the best – anyone of you self hating, insufferable curmudgeons tempted to be rude in the comments can just click the little ‘x’ in the right hand corner of the page. Thanks.


Lots more photos after the jump.

    Embarrassingly, my Star Wars knowledge appears to be lacking. Can someone explain this: “This year it’s Star Wars, since Kingsley’s turning 7.”

    • SparklyKittyTacos

      Maybe because episode 7 just came out? That’s the only thing I can think of.

      • dcd

        Well, that’s embarrassingly obvious. Thanks!

  • Cait

    These photos made my day- thanks for sharing!

      I was just coming to say this! What an awesome treat for the pups and happy birthday Kingsley!

  • I would go to a party like this over a child’s birthday party any day…and I don’t even have a dog! :) Also, totally stealing the “Seven Leia Dip” idea.

      Seven Leia Dip sounds like it has a little kick to it, like it could stand on its own without chips, if it had to.

      Me too. Love dogs. Can’t stand children.

    Fantastic! This brought a smile to my face.

  • Um, any chance those cardboard cutouts are available for a kids birthday party in June? My son would flip is lid.

    I LOVE this!! The birthday pup is adorable, and I’m impressed with his impressive agility title :)

    These pics made my day! Editor’s note made me LMBO!

    Love it!

    I think it’s delightful. Happy Birthday to the agility champ, from Pat the Dog, who managed to pee on and then knock over about 20 cans of cat food at the pet store. I bought him a toy anyway.

    You had me at 7 Leia dip!

  • FtLincolnLove

    This. Is. AMAZING! Especially R2Dog2.

    This is so much better than a human party, it actually looks like fun! Happy Birthday Kingsley!!

    My invitation. You must send.

    this is not the first time I’ve wished I was a dog… but it is the first time I’ve wished it so I could go to a birthday party.

    Love it!

  • Every year that I see the invite go out I really wish our dog was better behaved so we could go. Sigh.

    This is the gentrification everyone fears.
