Puppy Prom! Class of 2014 | thepupdiary.com

24 Jun

We love prom season! Pretty pups in pastel gowns headed to The Lofts at Prince in SoHo this past weekend for the puppy version of the annual high school dance. And dancing they did! Who let the dogs out? It was Bobbi Mitchell and her sidekick Roberto Negrin who planned and executed this fete to benefit Metropolitan Maltese Rescue. Last year’s event raised close to $1,500 for animal rescue!

No strangers to puppy proms – I think this is our 6th dog prom!! – this year’s party was our favorite so far! The DJ was so much fun! Paw shuffle anyone? Beautiful doggies, gorgeous gowns, treats, raffle baskets, vendors, goody bags, contests . . . the 3-hour event went by quickly and culminated with the crowning of the 2014 Puppy Prom King and Queen. Maltese Bella Mia and Pomeranian King Tut won the Pups on the Runway Puppy Prom crowns this year. Bella Mia wore a beautiful white crystal PinkPunkPuppy gown, and King Tut was fabulously and colorfully groomed by his dad, Ruben Santana, a professional groomer. The prize package included purple sashes and lots of goodies. Cruising into the event on a mini motorcycle, Bee Bee and Lily won best couple with their beautiful purple-themed attire by Hec-Lin Couture. Lisa Coplin Kerner and Rose the Pug took home the prize for best matching outfits in their signature pink ensemble by Orostani Couture.

A big round of applause to 2013 King and Queen, Gia and Mr. America who took their final walk as prom royalty. Both pups are regulars on the doggy social scene raising funds for animal causes. Bella Mia and King Tut have big doggy shoes to fill. (Literally in the case of Mr. America who is a Leonberger – BOL!) Congrats to Bobbi and Roberto on another successful event! Nice goody bag, too! We love our new LazyBonezz leashes!
