The Big Egg Hunt | thepupdiary.com

25 Apr

We didn’t have to venture far to find the 260 beautiful eggs that were hidden all around the city. Last week they were all brought over to decorate the 30 Rockefeller Center plaza before being auctioned off for charity through Paddle8. Proceeds from the auction will go to Studio in a School, an organization that brings arts programs to public schools, and to Elephant Family, an organization working to save the Asian elephant.

Decorated by artists and designers (Martha Stewart, Ralph Lauren . . .) and presented by Fabergé, the 2.5-foot tall eggs are part of “the world’s biggest egg hunt” in a major city. The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt website has links to maps, photos, and auction information. Jeff Koons even decorated an egg that will surely sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars . . . but probably not as much as his $50 million orange dog . . .

We found an egg!

Easter weekend and the New York dog | thepupdiary.com

29 Mar

Doggies will dust off their bonnets and gowns and head to the New York City Easter parade Sunday morning, March 31 from 10 am to 4 pm.  People and pups gather on Fifth Avenue between 49th and 57th Streets to get a look at the beautiful and outrageous hats and costumes.  A real feast for the eyes!  The “parade” is more of a gathering than a marching procession.
