Who: Dogs and dog lovers of all breeds
What: The Humane Society's Whisker Whirl benefit
When: Saturday, September 20
Where: Humane Society in Golden Valley
Why: Because if you want to make a great party even better, bring Fido along.
There is no way to better show Fifi the Yorkie you really love her than by slapping a tiara atop her fuzzy little head and parading her in front of strangers. But really, how do you improve on the usual benefit-dinner format, you know, the cocktail hour to grease guests for the silent auction, the three-course meal to sober 'em back up, and a little music and dancing?
Bring along the best accessory your cocktail dress has ever seen--man's best friend.
As the guests arrived at Whisker Whirl, an incredibly sweet if unintentionally hilarious humane society benefit, it seemed most guests spent more time getting their four-legged friends ready than themselves. Not that everyone didn't look great, but getting a 100-pound bulldog into a tux is incredibly time intensive, and we imagine there is a lot of slobber involved. And as the owners were busy chatting about the latest episode of the Dog Whisperer, the pups kept busy doing their whole sniffing thing and looking generally adorable, loving the fact that finally someone was smart enough to throw a party in their honor!
I could go on and on about the dogs in tutus, tuxes, cocktail dresses, and the one four-legged Michael Jackson impersonator that hammed it up for photographers on the red carpet at the Hollywoof-themed bash, but in this case, the pictures really speak for themselves.
