How much is that puppy on the runway?

Yoda and his friend were wearing Fifi & Romeo. Duke was already out of his sweater and Jeeves's English Bullhound of sported a classic Burberry's. Supermodel Veronica Webb, Jason Seahorn of the NY Giants and male supermodel Brian Borgia all walked the walk down the catwalk with the dogs in the haute couture, this time. presented an evening of "Paws for Style," the first annual benefit pet fashion show and auction with celebrities, models, designers and dogs. With sponsors from American Airlines, Saab, Absolute, Evian, Dell and exhibitors of, Petco the Aspca and others, the guests enjoyed a fashionable evening of fun and fur. Petopia donated hundreds of "Chicken Soup for the Cat & Dog Lover's Soul" and one of the co-authors, Marty Becker, was on hand to sign books.

After his runway appearance I got a picture with the real Jeeves--as seen on national TV! Jason Burham of Mass Transit Interactive, Jonathan Zelinger of Ethical Products and Josuha Stylman were a few others I met from the cyber scene at this pet scene. Cupcake cafe cake topped off a night that began with wonderfully enriching conversations set off in a lovely home.
