Two years ago, we were blessed with the opportunity to snuggle up to pooches as the pug pop-up cafe arrived .

A year later, sausage dogs took centre stage .

While we love and cherish all dogs, because they are amazing, we’re excited to announce that there is a cafe launching in London to celebrate the diva of all dogs: the chihuahua. The one-day event will take place on Sunday 21 July at The Happenstance in St Paul’s, and organisers are promising ‘all things Chi’.

There’ll be pupcakes, dognuts, barkscotti and pawsecco for the pooches, and each chihuahua will also be treated to a free pupuccino.

Humans will have plenty to enjoy too, with the Happenstance’s regular menu available, featuring brunch classics, cake and cocktails.

Organisers Pug Cafe have joined up with dog grooming brand Pet Teezer for the occasion and the first 200 chihuahua owners will receive a free brush worth £10.

Ticket sales launched at 10am today (15 June) and cost £10 for dog owners and £14 for dog lovers.

Yes, that means you can go along and stroke puppies even if you don’t have one of your own.

Focus on the Human-Animal Bond. “Dogs and cats have broken down the walls of our hearts. There haven’t been comparable domesticated species in 5,000 years.” For Dr. Becker, it’s clear that pets and people have evolved to benefit each other. He explains, “When you’re petting them, you both get this massive release of oxytocin, prolactin, dopamine, and a decrease in cortisol. It’s a reciprocal biochemical spa treatment.” As they age, it can be easy to take pets for granted. Make time for a little human-animal bonding every day.

We anticipate this event will be just as popular as previous ones, so if you want a ticket you better hurry.

There’s also a chance Paris Hilton shows up, given the billionaire heiress’s affection for the tiny dog breed.
