DRESSING UP, SINGING LOUD & SIPS FOR THE SIGHT OF OTHERS

Those who own dogs are statistically healthier. There are endless studies to the effects that their pawsome love lowers our blood pressure, raises our moral and keeps us living a more active life, so when dog lovers mix their canine pleasures with altruistic endeavors their acts of kindness must be reported.
DOGS IN PARTY HATS
This Fundraiser doubles as a contest supporting Guiding Eyes for the Blind and is filled with compassion and wacky wags! My friend Bocker the Labradoodle is their spokespup and Mr. April! Bocker’s Labradoodlicious Swirl was the April 2010 Flavor-of-the-Month at Via Vanti, in the historic Mount Kisco and it earns its licks from the doodle that stole my heart http://www.bocker.tv/
Carla Gambescia is the owner of Via Vaniti and creator/sponsor for this event, the 2010 contest is now in full swing – which is wonderful excuse to get Fido a Costume for Halloween, and I might just march to Target to see if any of Simon Doonan’s kitschy costumes are left! Ok – so you know you want to be IN IT to WIN IT and even your entry fee goes directly to Guiding Eyes. You can also Dog with them 365 days a year with their amazingly cute calendar... http://www.dogsinpartyhats.com/
Step 1: Create a look for your Puptastic Dog to show his or her spirit and don't forget the chapeau!
Step 2: Name a tasty Gelato flavor after your dog in heals that celebrates his or her costume.
Step 3: Submit the photo and wait for the judges to review all the worthy entries in November
Step 4: Eat Gelato!
MORE GOOD FOR THE GUIDE DOG AND A LITTLE VINO
If you want to keep giving and have a thirst for fine wine, I suggest you visit The Wine Guy, Andy Besch at West Side Wines www.westsidewine.com who also helps raise guide dogs.
HAIR STYLED WITH SONGS THAT BENEFIT VISUALLY IMPAIRED
I think all the Pawrents of the said 12 flavors should get their hair trimmed by my genius hairdresser Roberto Novo who works with many charities including VISIONS.
Call to book an appointment at 212 929 1652 and get set to have your hair behave and work for you versus you working for it! Just mention FUR and any of his Frenchies by name: Machito, Matilda or baby Millie and you will get the inside price and help raise money for the CD he is preparing for visually impaired children that study and find employment with Visions http://www.visionsvcb.org/services_children.html
LOOK GOOD AND DO GOOD
