Our unexpected guest at Rescues Rock the Runway | thepupdiary.com

12 Jun

Yorkie911 Rescue has placed over 400 doggies into loving homes over the past four years! Their annual Rescues Rock the Runway event, held this past weekend at the Hauppauge Sheraton Hotel, was the pawfect place to celebrate and help raise money for even more success stories! And truth be told, the Yorkie folks sure do know how to host a great event! Food, fashion, friends, fun giveaways, and over fifty great raffle baskets! A fun day on Long Island for a great cause.

Adopted dogs took center stage wearing gorgeous fashions by Toni Mari Designs, NemiCouture, Chick-a-Bow-Wow, and Vienna Couture Canine. All outfits were available for sale after the runway show with a portion of the proceeds donated to Yorkie911 Rescue. We loved meeting the designers and seeing their fashions up close and personal. PawVogue came out to check out the show and take fashion photos.

We had a surprise visitor- a tick! We found the critter on Ginger’s belly as we were leaving. Mom applied a vial of Frontline Plus to Ginger’s neck and the tick jumped off onto the couch where mom caught it. We called the vet who said the tick could start to spread disease only after 24 hours of attachment. He told us to apply Frontline every 3 weeks if we will visit Connecticut or Long Island, where ticks are becoming resistant sooner than the 4-week recommended dosage. Our doggy friends recommended Earth Animal Internal Powder so we will give it a try! Of course, we had just attended a Lyme disease event and mom did not take her own advice! She screamed and flushed the tick down the toilet . . . We heard it is going to be a very bad tick season in our area so we need to get prepared!

We love Yorkie911 Rescue because they truly love the dogs! They are a group of volunteers with a passion for helping pups. They are always looking for volunteers to foster, visit homes of potential adopters, help at doggy adoption events, and other tasks. Join their team for the upcoming Strut Your Mutt on September 28 in NYC– an annual dog walk and fair on the Hudson River!
