CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — In many Hispanic families, a quinceanera celebrates a girl's 15th birthday, the year she is said to come of age.

But one Twitter user has proven this custom isn't just for people!

Lupita Conchita rang in her 15th birthday over the weekend when her owner threw her a party. 



The birthday doggo from Corpus Christi sported a tiara and a poofy dress for the big day, and was celebrated with a cake, cupcakes, balloons and flowers.

The owner's tweet of the party pictures has more than 16,000 retweets and nearly 60,000 likes in less than a week since being posted.
