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!

Did we tell you we love this time of year when the Westminster dogs take over New York City?! One of our fave annual events each February is the Barkfest at Bonhams on Madison Avenue. What could be better than dogs, art, and biscuits? And the event also raises money for the AKC Humane Fund!

Dogs and Art!

The brunch is a fun preview to the Dogs in Show & Field fine art sale taking place February 12. There are beautiful paintings, pins, plates, sculptures — all with a doggy theme! A John Martin Tracy painting valued at over $100,000 is one of the show stoppers! This year they had 2 showrooms with so much to look at:

Best of all they had homemade doggy biscuits and a nice goody bag. We got our own bag of Ryan’s Barkery treats and some other cool stuff.

Bow wow WOW for Broadway Barks | thepupdiary.com

15 Jul

We headed to Shubert Alley Saturday afternoon to check out the 15th annual Broadway Barks pet adoption event. We went early because it was hot outside and the event tends to get very crowded with people looking to adopt animals and meet Broadway stars.

Founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, Broadway Barks has seen hundreds of animals find forever homes through this annual event. Animal shelters and rescue groups from the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals line the Alley and part of 45th Street with adoption information tables and adoptable animals. Mom was approached several times to see if we were available for adoption. Nope! But we both did have similar starts as shelter pups looking for homes! We wanted to spend the afternoon at the Stella & Chewy’s table looking for treats!

On Sunday, while shopping for dinner at our local pet shop, we met a doggy who had been adopted the day before at the event. He was so cute and had a sad story with a happy ending. Someone had left him in Brooklyn tied to a tree. Thankfully some kind folks found him and took him to BARC Shelter where he got care before his adoption. So happy he found his forever home! We’ll bark to that!!
