4 May

The dog fashion and couture worlds came together yesterday in New York City for the second annual Celebrity Catwalk “Paws in the City” fashion show. Over 20 invitation-only doggy models strutted their stuff down the runway at The Cell Theatre in Chelsea — all helping to raise funds and awareness for homeless animals in the city. Former shelter pups ourselves, we are always happy to support efforts to help find forever homes for everyone!

Fifteen talented pet fashion designers from around the world donated their time and talent to create beautiful designs that rocked the runway. We heard several folks say this was “the best” NYC dog fashion show they have ever seen! A HUGE paws up to the designers and Jennifer Bartok of Celebrity Catwalk for this fun labor of love. We were honored to model 7 designs! I was a bit of a runway piggy because I was trying to find my mom in the audience – BOL! (And don’t laugh at my gait — I have a luxating patella. . .) All of the pups looked smashing! The humans looked pretty good, too. A special thanks to our model, Angie, for helping me strut down the runway!

We took our Paws in the City designs out into the city today for a fun photo shoot. Beautiful fashions and a beautiful New York City background of Times Square and Bryant Park.

I kissed a Prince (and I liked it) | thepupdiary.com

“Will you accept this biscuit?” That is what he asked me right before I planted a big wet kiss on his cheek! Well he is Prince Lorenzo Borghese from The Bachelor series on ABC, so he must say this to all the pups he meets! LoBor (that is our pet name for him) produced his own bachelor show with doggies called America’s Next Top Dog. Candidly LoBor’s show was sooo much better than the human version! And not just because we had starring roles! BOL!!

Lorenzo, who is a founder of Animal Aid, is a huge animal advocate and supporter. I kissed him on the red carpet of the recent Celebrity Catwalk Paws in the City runway fashion show. The show featured adoptable pups from Animal Care & Control and Rescuzilla. Ten doggy fashion designers from around the globe donated their time, talent, and gorgeous fashions to help make the runway show a success and get media attention for the adoptable pups. The Housewives of New York came out with a film crew. Could Carole Radziwill be any cooler?! She even offered to get involved to foster pups! Smart, beautiful, and a kind heart.

So there was drama before the event, during the event, and after the event. But we are kind of used to that. . . Some doggies wanted more fashions to wear. Some doggies wanted more rescue pups in the show. Some doggies came just to be filmed for “reality” shows. And some doggies insisted they looked better than everyone else at the event. BOL! This little doggy came out to support Jennifer Celebrity Catwalk, the designers, and of course the thousands and thousands of doggies at local shelters each year, who just want a place to call home . . .

Last night we attended a Celebrity Catwalk event featuring adoptable dogs, fashion, drama, more fashion, more drama, and fun! We’ll write full details later and also post some photos! In the meantime, check out some of the dogs on the catwalk in the video we took at the event. Furry paws hit the runway in the city!

Although it was raining cats and dogs Saturday afternoon, we ventured out and headed down to the new Salty Paw boutique at the end of Pier 17 at the Seaport. (Read The Salty Paw’s Super Storm Sandy story here.) Celebrity Catwalk was hosting an event to promote their upcoming Paws in the City fashion show, which will take place on June 1 at Calumet Gallery. Fashion designers from around the globe are busy putting the finishing touches on their outfits that will be worn by over a dozen furry fashionista doggy models. Yes, we are modeling in this one! You don’t want to miss this fun event so get your tickets soon!

We absolutely love The Salty Paw’s new summer home at the end of the Pier! (This will be one of our fave summer hangouts!) Not only do they carry the most fun and practical doggy items (they have one of the best selections of local doggy treats in the area), they also have a wonderful water view, a friendly staff, and creative groomers! If you are looking to add a touch of color to your doggy fur coat, this is the place to come! Oh and did we mention that they have treat SAMPLES all around the boutique. YUM!! Celebrity Catwalk had goody bags for everyone with Wahl dog shampoo and other items. (Mom loved the Reena Treats cupcakes!)

Shopping for treats

The Salty Paw’s summer location: 89 South Street, the end of Pier 17 at the Seaport – walk outside to the end of the Pier and you will see their signs! The East River Ferry allows small dogs in bags and is a convenient way to visit the area.

And don’t forget to visit Celebrity Catwalk for tickets and upcoming event information!
