Kissing Ray Kelly and other updates | thepupdiary.com

11 Dec

This is our absolute favorite time of year! There are just so many fun things to do, places to go, people to meet, food to eat, parties to attend, and on and on! We are so busy that mom (our secretary) does not have time to update our blog as often as she should. Hey mom, have you even done our Christmas shopping yet?! (NO!)

This past weekend we attended the Blessing of the Animals at Christ Church on Park Avenue. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and I shared a kiss! The event was hosted by Cindy Adams and helped raise money for Best Friends Animal Society.

We met with the Bergdorf Goodman Santa Claus — who may actually be the real Santa Claus! They published our photos on their blog celebrating #BGDogs about town. The BG Santa is on the 7th floor every Sunday.

We saw the Thanksgiving parade with front row seats! (From our secret spot at the very end of the parade.)

We toured Animal Haven Shelter with our volunteer group from A Fair Shake for Youth. We hope all of the pups find homes soon!

We helped with a fundraiser donating items to local shelters. And we attended a program with A Fair Shake for Youth where special guests Lorenzo Borghese and Bocker the Labradoodle talked about adoption and animal advocacy. Yes, we have had a very busy month!

City Dog Expert features NYC dog-friendly homes | thepupdiary.com

9 Jul

When City Dog Expert asked to showcase our New York City dog-friendly apartment in her feature “Boudoir Interview” series, we said sure! You’ll never see our small lair in House Beautiful, but we do try to make good use of space. And it’s fun to see how other doggies live in the big city! From Park Avenue pups to Brooklyn barkers to canines in Queens — doggy living quarters can be as diverse as all of the different breeds, but there are usually a few things in common. The need for space, storage, and more space!

A few of our tips:

-We use Container Store Elfa door storage racks to keep our doggy “stuff” in one area of the apartment
-We buy gently used furniture items from The Salvation Army (West 46th Street between 10th and 11th Aves) . . . they always have a great selection at low prices
-We donate all of our unused doggy items to Rock & Rawhide — they have drop boxes at local Petco stores
-We keep a Critter Zone air purifier going to cut down on odors
-We follow the “rule” when one item comes into the house, one item must leave the house . . .

A big thanks to City Dog Expert for interviewing us!
