I say why not? But one thing you have to do is clear it with the venue, and if they say no he can be outside as a greater. Animals mostly come handy at wedding anniversaries and kid parties. They can be a great hit if you give them a roll to play, dress them up. They are sure to give someone joy and bring some laughter to your event. So give it some thought get permission and bring your hot dog. :) and have a blast! Thanks for reading and renting our venue we love you.
