Last week over 200 people with and their best friends came out in all their furry glory for the big seven year anniversary of Tails in the City pet boutique at Proof Nightclub.
Adults enjoyed an enormous open bar as the their dogs enjoyed gourmet dog treats and bowls of water. Not to trump the dog beach at Belmont, but this party was the who's who of the canine scene in Chicago. Pooches like Genevieve and Charlie from the Gold Coast showed up wearing Woof Link while not to be outdone, Biscuit the bulldog showed up in his own personalized Cubs uniform. Lilly Grace, a Cavalier King Charles from the near north side made an appearance wearing a Le Chien tutu dress from One Lucky Dog Couture. Also in our album we see Cricket a French bulldog, is wearing a harness by Up Country. Pet psychic Denise Zak was the talk of the party while there was also a pretty popular makeover booth by Bobbi Panter. After makeovers many guests trotted to the other side of the club to get their photo taken on the red carpet by Bum Bul Bee or sit and stay in the photo booth.
Guests left the party with treats from Bum Bul Bee, More cupcakes, Stella and Chewy's, Zukes and a certificate to Downtown Dogs.
