And the Golden Mutt Award goes to . . . PupScouts |

30 Sep

This past weekend we participated in the 4th annual NYC Strut Your Mutt doggy walk hosted by Best Friends Animal Society. It’s one of our favorite NYC doggy events! The walk is held on the beautiful Hudson River, it raises money to help homeless pets, and several cool vendors and organizations come out to support the walk each year.

What’s cool about this walk is that rescue groups can form “dog packs” and raise funds for their own rescue efforts. Our friends at Yorkie911 Rescue formed a dog pack and raised over $4,000 to help Yorkies in need! The top dog pack honor in NYC goes to Long Island Bulldog Rescue with a fundraising effort of over $33,000!

PupScouts of DPFamily Troop 4 formed a dog pack team to support Best Friends Animal Society and raised close to $2,000 — earning the Golden Mutt Award for raising the most money for BFAS! PupScouts Cubby and Ginger visited the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah over the summer and hope to make a return trip with some other PupScouts next spring after the Blog Paws conference in May.

The PupScouts, a group of philanthropic pups, have more fun and adventure up their doggy sleeves! Follow them on their website All pups are welcome to become PupScout members or to form other PupScout groups around the world!

Dog party with a purpose |

13 Feb

What do you get when you cross some Pup Scouts with a Puccini? A fun dog-friendly party raising over $1,300 for the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals! Puccini, a Maltipoo on a mission, decided to dedicate his 6th birthday party to one of his favorite causes – homeless animals. He enlisted his Pup Scout doggy friends to help out by donating their time and talents to the cause.

Puccini’s party kicked off Pet Fashion Week and pups from around the nation came to wish him a pawsome year. Held at Honda of Manhattan on the west side, party goers enjoyed food, drinks, doggy treats, a silent auction, games, and photo opps. Dawn Deisler made an amazing doggy portrait cake!

Horseless carriages, please |

21 Oct

No, not headless horsemen. Horseless carriages. We hate to see the horses working in and around Central Park. It is just way too dangerous for them to be out in all of that traffic! And pollution! We think a solar-powered carriage would be a fun way to see the park! Of course, we prefer to walk (and run) through the park.

We say "NO" to carriage horses in NYC

Fun on set of Good Morning America |

24 Apr

Living in New York City, we get to do some pretty fun, exciting, and “different” things. We are surrounded by beautiful parks and water. We have dozens and dozens of dog-friendly shops to explore. We also have amazing media opportunities including popular morning TV shows!

Pup Scouts on Good Morning America

Last week, the New York Pup Scout troop was invited to be featured on Good Morning America in Times Square! We had to arrive in the green room very early in the morning. Everyone on set was so nice and seemed to genuinely like doggies. Even celebrity guests like Billy Ray Cyrus came over to say hello to all of us! (Zac Efron on the other hand . . . BOL!) Our on-air time was cut short due to important national news. But we still had fun promoting Beth Stern’s new show, Spoiled Rotten Pets.

The life of a New York doggy . . . what fun opportunities will come next?!

(Here is more about our troop leader, Tasha Bella the Manhattan Morkie.)
