Doggy Dash in Central Park | thepupdiary.com

15 Jul

Doggy athletes competed in Animal Medical Center’s 5-mile Doggy Dash race through Central Park yesterday morning. The doggy event, part of the Aquaphor NYC Triathlon, sells out every year. The pups were checked by Animal Medical Center’s medical staff before, during, and after the race. And the after-race festival featured cooling stations with swimming pools, beverages, and Yappy Treats Cart doggy yogurt. Yum! A big congratulations to all of the doggy athletes! You make us proud!

Animal Medical Center’s Living Legends Luncheon | thepupdiary.com

The Animal Medical Center held their Fifth Annual Living Legends Luncheon this afternoon at the Harmonie Club on East 60th Street. Pet Expert, Charlotte Reed, hosted one of the tables at the invitation-only special event and mom was invited to attend. What a wonderful group of people who came together to honor some very remarkable pets and their human guardians. Of course the talented veterinarians who treated the honorees at The AMC were celebrated, too!

What started as a small gathering with a few people in a park 5 years ago has blossomed into a catered luncheon with over 200 attendees. “All event proceeds support The AMC’s mission to promote the health and well-being of companion animals through advanced treatment, research, and education.”

Three awards were presented this year to three very deserving animals; a Dachshund named Isabella, Magik the cat, and Pauli the Labrador who also serves as a guide dog. Each had a touching story and superior medical treatment at The AMC to help them through their illness and recovery.

Mom sat with the founder of The Good Dog Foundation, Rachel McPherson, and loved hearing her stories and commitment to animals. We will attend their annual A Fetching Affair gala on May 30.

And check out these very adorable purses by artist, Priscilla Snyder! We need one of these!!
