The hottest ticket in town last weekend was not a Yankee game or a fancy new rooftop bar opening. Animal Haven in SoHo was hosting the event of the the spring. Lenny, the philanthropic pug, turned eight this weekend, and he had a party with all this pug friends to celebrate.
Lenny is one super cool tripod. When he was just seven months old, he darted out onto the West Side Highway in New York City, and luckily he lived to tell about it. Just with one fewer leg. But you wouldn’t know it by looking at him. He can beg with the best of them.
Ever since then, Lenny has been devoted to Curly Tail Pug Rescue, a pug rescue group in the tri-state area. Ever the selfless pup, he did not want gifts (although steak wouldn’t have been turned down), but only wanted donations for CTPR.
Security is super tight at an event like this. After Lenny (pulling double duty as bouncer), checked his guests in, they were free to roam.
Most made a beeline to the pizza, which resulted in begging.
Lots and lots of begging.
More begging. They are relentless. (Hey! It’s Hamilton Pug!)
Thanks to Lenny, Curly Tail and Animal Haven for hosting such an awesome bash. If you want to attend your own dog fiesta, check out Meetup for groups of all breeds all over the country!
