       Hi buddies! Mom's so excited... It's just one more day fur the fabulous New Yorkie Runway Fashion Show! Mom's previous guest post about the New Yorkie Runway Casting Call was on and she had such a great time watching all the very talented pups with their people.

        This is the third year, and this year's will be better than ever. The show's founder, Elly McGuire (of the very popular weekly #Petchat on Twitter), has designed lots of stylish doggy fashions! And the list of celebrities is amazing. All of this to benefit the"Angel On A Leash" program.     
     The historic New Yorker Hotel will be the venue for the show. David Frei, the voice of Westminster and chairman of "Angel On A Leash," will emcee the event, showcasing NYC’s New Yorkie™new Spring line of pet apparel.

  • Sonja Morgan and Carole Radziwill (Bravo TV's Real Housewives of New York City)
  • Ron Harper (Five time NBA Champion)
  • Logan West (Miss Teen USA 2012)
