Last night was the New York Pet Fashion Show. So before I start, let me say that since I have started attending this show, the only thing that I remember is that it is either always snowing (a lot - and I mean like shut down the city snow) or very cold. I don't remember rain though..hmmm. The show always goes on, never cancelled - sometimes its a good thing, sometimes not. Regardless, a few brave souls and their pups (myself included) attended and it was as crazy as ever. The theme this year was Global Couture for Animal Rescue. A lot of countries were represented - India, Puerto Rico and Germany just to name a few. There were a few vendors there, but my favorite is always Tomlyn. They bring products with them - and not samples - and take the time to explain what each product does, how it will benefit your dog or cat and encourage you to take some home with you to try. My pups are over the moon with the Calm and Relax treats that they have and it does calm them down and their products are affordable, a big plus when you have 2 dogs.. There was a new product - well new to me - a light up leash, by Nitey leash. Very stylish but I should have gotten 2. They come in all colors and actually light up. I love it. The shows, and there were 3, were interesting, but I confess that my seat was right behind the press so it was difficult to see. I remember there being a tribute to Broadway Shows, and then the World fashions. The last contest was for the "regular folk" lol and we did enter. Now let me say that yes, it would be amazing to actually win one, but BB has been on the runway since she was 1 and is somewhat over it. CiCi is just making her debut on the runway, so their appearance last night was for CiCi to say that she walked the NYPS runway. They represented India in amazing dresses designed by Asha Vereen. There were also some awards given out and it was nice to see some of my friends receive them. All in all, it was a great time and I certainly hope that they raised a great amount of money for Animal Welfare.
