Dog Life in CLE Event: Puppy Party on the Patio



Dog Life in CLE held its second event called Puppy Party on the Patio at Jukebox in Hingetown. Puppy Party on the Patio was from 6-9pm on October 7th. It was a celebration of Bella’s first birthday and to fundraise some money for our friends at R.E.A.L. Rottweiler Rescue! Jukebox was kind enough to donate 20% of all sales from that night to the rescue. There was also raffle baskets and R.E.A.L. Rottweiler Rescue T-shirts for sale too with all proceeds going to the rescue.

Puppies that were up for adoption were also present at the event:


If you haven’t been to Jukebox before, the patio is dog friendly! Dogs are not allowed inside. You can read about our first visit to Jukebox. They do have some water dishes and the patio is very spacious. It was the perfect spot for this Dog Life in CLE event!

Puppy Party on the Patio was such a hit! The patio was completely filled with people and dogs! I’m estimating around 40 people plus dogs showed up, but it was hard to keep track. I originally had plans for games at the event, but I had to dismiss them due to the lack of space and ability to get everyone’s attention.

I bought a peanut butter and carob doggie cake from Grateful Dog Bakery that I shared with all of the dogs at the party. Many of them gobbled it right up, some in only one bite!

I also had paw print party hats that humans and dogs could wear.

A play pen with adoptable puppies was the hot spot of the party. Bella was so overfilled with excitement at the party that she couldn’t contain herself. A few of her Instagram dog friends came too. Overall, I think everyone had a great time and we had perfect weather for it. All pups were tired out by the end of the night!


From the sales at Jukebox, we raised $200, plus $150 from the raffle drawings and t-shirts. This makes a grand total of $350 raised for R.E.A.L. Rottweiler Rescue!! This helps them greatly for saving sick, abused, and neglected dogs, along with raising puppies and getting them fixed! Thank you to everyone who came out and thank you Jukebox!!!!

A side note: please be careful where you park in Hingetown! Unfortunately, someone had smashed the window in my new car, along with other cars, while I was at the event! Park under a street light!
