Puppy Shower Menu Ideas?

I'm bringing home my new Westie puppy at the end of next month. After he gets settled in, I want to have a couple people over for dinner to meet him. I thought it might be cute to be a little kitchy - but all I can come up with is hot dogs and hush puppies.
Any fun ideas? I'm thinking hot dogs might be my best bet so we can be casual in the backyard. But how to I dress that up?
Puppy chow (kind of a sweet chex mix sort of thing)--might be cute if you had a couple of dog bowls (New!) filled with the chow.
If you drink and serve alcohol, wander the microbrew aisle at BevMo and you'll find dozens of brands and labels that are dog-named and decorated. Stock a large metal pail with ice and a variety of dog brews.
From the idea list I came up with once while arranging for a greyhound fund-raiser:
Devil Dogs (junk food or homemade version)
Spinone Italiano > spumoni
Bouvier des Flan
Brussels Griffon Sprouts
Chow Chow (a real type of relish, for the hot dogs)
Curly-Coated Retriever Fries
Springer Spaniel Rolls
Flatbread Coated Retriever
Irish Setter Bread
Maltese MIlk Balls
Salmon en Papillon
Welsh Corgi Rarebit
Yorkshire Terrier Pudding
Barkoli > broccoli
Whole Wheaten Bread
and of course: West Highland White Rice
Go right ahead - BTW, the "pupovers" are something I make as dog treats for adoption group bake sales (25 cents each). I make a popover batter and add meat baby food, cheese, garlic, and/or peanut butter and bake them in mini-muffin tins for about 25 min at 375. They don't rise as much as a real popover but they are still puffed and appealing-looking.
