June 3rd was Dulcinea's 1st birthday and so we held a party in honor of her. The party's theme was a "Completada & Karaoke".
First, let me explain for those of you who don't know what completos are. Chile is known for its completo sandwiches which are hot dogs that pile on every topping imaginable: ketchup, mustard, mayo, palta (avocado), onion, pebre (similar to a spicy salsa), tomato, etc. Thus making the hot dog "complete" (which is the translation of completo). For more information, check out the Ode to the Completo Chileno.
Anyway, so the "Completada" part of the theme was an ode to Dulcinea's being a salchicha (wiener dog). The karaoke part of the theme was an ode to the fact that Dulcinea likes to sing, as can be seen in the following video:
We invited two of Dulcinea's bestest doggie friends, Panchito and Brunito, as well as some of her human friends who also happen to be our friends too. While we didn't get many pictures of the humans enjoying the party (ya know, with all the karaoke that was going on), our pro photographer did get some shots of the canine children:
The Three Musketeers (L-R: Bruno, Panchito, Dulcinea)
Next year we hope that Dulcinea can celebrate her birthday with her Grandma in Colorado since they have birthdays only 2 days apart!
