How do you mark the first birthday of the coolest canine in town? You throw him a big bash, invite all his mates over and bake him a fabulous birthday cake.

That's what singer Dua Lipa did for her beloved rescue pup.

The singer and her model boyfriend Anwar Hadid adopted the adorable black rescue from LA's The Labelle Foundation last August.

Since then, Dua has frequently posted updates and photos of her fur baby on social media. Not surprisingly, she took to social media when it came to marking the dog's birthday.

"Dexter is one today. Smallest guard dog in the world. Our tiniest companion!! Like 3 peaaaaz in a pod."

On the guest list were Dexter's buddies, Otto, Loxie, Billie and Tequila, who were all excited to pawty with the birthday boy who looked even more adorable wearing a birthday neckerchief and cute blue party hat.

The proud canine mum was determined to make it a pawty to remember, and by the looks of things, she certainly didn't disappoint.

Once the canine celebrations were complete, Dua, Anwar and their friends headed out to enjoy some well deserved candlelit cocktails in London.
