Fluffy dishes up for his pup.
Comedian Gabriel Iglesias treated his longtime companion to a quinceañera celebration that cost about $100,000 for his dog, Risa, according to Today.
“Party of the year just for my little princess,” Iglesias captioned a post on Instagram. “Risa has given me so many happy years. I just wanted to celebrate her. I even wore pants”
Iglesias, whose name is Fluffy, posted a video on his social media channels showing him pushing the spoiled 4-pound Chihuahua in a decorated carriage as they entered the party together.
“I’ve had dogs since I was a kid, and Risa was the only female dog I’ve ever had,” Iglesias told the outlet. “Since I’ve had her, she’s always been in my hoodie from day one. We’re very close.”
While Iglesias held the “Quinceañera” usually held for 15-year-old girls, Risa is thought to be closer to 16-17.
The comedian invited over 300 guests to the party, while about 12 dogs attended the celebration along with their owners.
There was no shortage of entertainment at Risa’s birthday, as Iglesias enlisted a band, DJ, dancers, giant robot men, and “Christian and Scooby,” a human-canine duo. There was also a bear building station and caricaturists, among other things.
The “Mr. Iglesias’ star was inspired to throw the birthday party after seeing someone throw a party for their own pooch. He saw it as a risk to take the extra step.
“There’s no way he loves his dog more than I love my dog. Challenge accepted.” said Iglesias.
There were several outfit changes throughout the evening for Risa, who wore three different bespoke dresses designed by Iglesias Director of Operations Marybel Pineda, as well as a full menu, according to Today.
“I got blown up and people are like, ‘Oh, you wasted money,’ but it’s like, no.” “I’m celebrating something that means the world to me,” Iglesias said.
Fluffy recently released his latest Netflix special, Gabriel Iglesias: Stadium Fluffy, in which he opened up about his adventures with Risa and his other dog, Vinny, during lockdowns in 2020, including a trip to Starbucks to get Puppuccinos .
