Fashion for Paws

Fashion for Paws was this past weekend and I am excited to report Sparkle was a star on the runway, dressed in a very chic red patent leather raincoat. Sparkle was all set to perform the runway twirl that we had been practicing but I chickened out at the last moment and skipped her impressive trick. The Italian Embassy was packed with animal lovers anxious to see everyone all dressed up and parading down the "dogwalk". In it's fourth year now the event superseded previous years by raising over $335,000 which will benefit the animals and programs of the Washington Humane Society.

I want to thank everyone who supported me as I was very proud to contribute $8,600 through my fundraising campaign. The raffle at Friendship raised $870 and would not have been possible without Hill's Science Diet, Happy Paws, Nutramax, Butler-Schein, PetMac and Friendship donating wonderful prizes. Especially heartwarming is how Izzie the dog's mom who won a six month supply of Science Diet food offered to give her prize to the shelter animals of WHS.
The event has become such a success that next year Fashion for Paws is planning on taking over a new, larger venue so even more WHS supporters can be a part of the excitement. Sparkle is already working on her runway walk and planning her outfit!
