WHS: Gettin' Pretty for the Pooches

By Rachel Demita, Special to OMG

MORE F4P: Perino, Portis and the Paws Come Out

Alongside the salon services, customers bought raffle tickets, participated in a silent auction, and over cupcakes and cocktails. Salon manager Shannon Cusello said “It’s a little hectic, but hectic is good; it means there are more people coming to help out.”

With such great feedback and support, Fashion for Paws is already planning upcoming events to benefit the WHS. “Our goal is to raise $12,000 for the Washington Humane Society,” explained Fashion for Paws Executive Director Tara de Nicolas.  Can’t donate.. maybe you can adopt 😉 

 

Atti-Cam: Dirty Dog

Lately Atticus has returned from his quick bathroom trip outside looking like a dalmation wanna-be. I’m talking black spots from head to full body to tail. All I can think of is that he is rolling  around in the berries outside. Your diagnosis is welcomed!

Ambassador Atticus for Arthritis

You heard me right. My beloved crooked-tail lab represented canines across the metro at the big 2010 Arthritis Walk on the Mall.

Atticus was this year’s pet ambassador for the Doggy Arthritis Walk. Last year our vet found initial signs of arthritis in his elbow. Since then we’ve taken steps by giving him a joint pill everyday and monitoring his weight with dog diet food. Shout out to little Goff, Jenny Kim for taking Atticus to the walk since I was out of town. I heard he met a DFF .. another precious yellow lab named Oliver! Congrats to all the walkers who helped raise more than $100,000 for arthritis research! Tune in Tuesday to WUSA9 TV’s Morning Show for an event recap!
