A pampered pup named Boris has celebrated his third birthday in luxury after his owners threw him a birthday party complete with 'Let's Pawty' balloons and a lavish celebration cake.
The pitbull, who lives with owners Alley and Alex Bardon in Missouri, even had a professional photographer on hand to take snaps of the event.
Boris - who was recently rescued from a shelter - celebrated his big day with 15 guests and devoured a peanut-flavoured cake from local bakery, Treats Unleashed.
Human guests wore special custom made t-shirts adorned with Boris' face while the birthday boy himself donned a special '3' scarf and a birthday hat.
"Nobody could believe that we were having a full-on party for a dog," said Alley, 27. "We had a peanut-flavoured cake [and] the two chihuahuas Bebe and Belle who came were picky so Boris had the whole thing to himself over a few days."
Dog mother Alley explained the party only cost around $90 (£68.80) after she traded art for photos.
"It was $40 (£30.60) for the cake and shirts and we traded some art I made for the professional photographs so I think we spent around $90 (68.80) on the party."
Boris is used to dressing up in all kinds of fancy outfits as well as having his photo taken.
The pooch poses in a variety of outfits, including a tuxedo bib, a sweater covered in rubber ducks and (our personal fave) a Christmas jumpsuit.
Modelling is tiring work, however, and once the dressing up is done, Boris sleeps in a crib in Alley and Alex's bedroom before climbing in for a morning cuddle at weekends.
"He sleeps with us at the weekend and in the morning, he will come over and look at me as though he is saying: 'Can I come up now?'" Alley explained.
"He likes to be babied [...] I eat popcorn in bed and he's right there, looking at me, so we share it."
The couple fell in love with Boris after fostering him for two weeks through a local rescue group, Needy Paws.
"His little beady eyes just looked so cute so we set up a meet and greet," said Alley.
"He hadn't been neutered so we fostered him for a couple of weeks before we could sign the papers."
Soon, the couple set up an Instagram page for Boris which has since attracted 32,000 followers.
With so many paid sponsorship deals, the couple explain they no longer need to buy anything for their pooch.
"We don't have to buy him anything anymore, except for dog food," said Alley.
"He has made $1,000 (£764) through Instagram and we think that's just going to grow.
"People like to watch him eat, they like his silly outfits and his funny bottom-teeth-grin.
"All rescues deserve a loving home and I don't think there's any way they can be too spoilt."
