Comedian Gabriel Iglesias spoiled his longtime companion with a quinceañera celebration that cost his dog Risa an estimated $100,000, according to Today.

“Party of the year for my little princess,” Iglesias captioned an Instagram post. “Risa gave me so many years of happiness. I just wanted to celebrate her. I even wore pants”

Iglesias, who goes by the name Fluffy, posted a video on his social media showing him pushing the pampered 4-pound chihuahua in a decorated horse-drawn carriage as they entered the party together.

“I’ve had dogs since I was a kid and Risa was the only dog ​​I ever had,” Iglesias told the outlet. “Since I’ve had her, since day one, she’s always been in my hoodie. Were very close.”

While Iglesias held the “quinceañera”, which is usually reserved for 15-year-old girls, Risa is believed to be closer to 16-17.

The comedian invited over 300 guests to the party while around 12 dogs attended the celebration alongside their owners.

Risa’s birthday was not short of fun as Iglesias hired a band, a DJ, giant dancing robots and “Christian and Scooby”, a man-dog duo. There was also a bear building station and cartoon artists, among other things.

The “Mr. Iglesias” star was inspired to throw the birthday party after seeing someone throw a party for his own pooch. He saw it as a challenge to take it one step further.

“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 sported three different custom dresses designed by Iglesias operations manager Marybel Pineda along with an extensive menu, according to Today.

“I went all out 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” where he opened up about his adventures with Risa and his other dog Vinny during the 2020 shutdowns, including a trip to Starbucks to get some “puppuccinos.”
