When Dr. Patrick Mahaney isn't helping animals during the work day, he's enjoying spending time with them at glamourous events, like the Pre-Westminster Fashion Show at New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania.
Luckily for all of us, he brought a camera and wrote a review of the whole event.
"In prepping for the Westminster Kennel Club 136th Annual Dog Show, I attended the Pre-Westminster Fashion Show at New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania.
The "Venetian Masquerade" theme featured both humans and canines displaying their personal interpretation of Venetian masks and attire. The night of high fashion and philanthropy benefitting animal welfare in support of Animal Care and Control of New York City. The event was produced by Oehler Media Productions (publisher of Cesar's Way magazine).
A variety of furry and less-hirsute participants attended the festivities, including CNN and Showbiz Tonight’s AJ Hammer (less-hirsute).
The “puptuals” wedding theme featured canine couples sporting four seasons inspired garb. The Natural Balance Pet Food sponsored “exhibitors runway show” showcased useful pet products, including:
PhysiPet behavior stimulation and exercise toys
Living The Good Life custom pet memorabilia
Style Hounds hand knit canine sweaters and accessories
Waglet Works adventure dog gear
Tails Untold personalized books of pet adventure
Other notable runway walkers included Greg Kleva (Host of It’s a Dog’s Life on Sirius XM 110 Martha Stewart Radio) and Nikki Moustaki (award winning writer and founder of Pet Postcard Project).
