As his Modern Family
co-stars celebrated Sofia Vergara's 40th birthday
in Mexico, Eric partied with the pooches at Veterans Park in Alabaster, Alabama. "I know how much dogs love coming out and hanging out with other dogs and running around and just smelling the smells of the world," he said. "I think the dogs get a real kick out of it. I can already tell they enjoy running around. They're probably thinking, 'If we can just get some of these people out of here.'"
