Dress Up For the Dogs

Way back when, we’d dress our dog Zero in a grubby, oversized t-shirt. Occasionally he’d run off while wearing it. He’d end up at the country club across the way, helping himself and his t-shirt to a swim in the pool. Most—ok, all—of the canines at Saturday’s Mayor and First Lady’s Dog Ball will be sporting outfits swankier than Zero’s. While they’re spiffed up, they can compete for prizes in the Doggie Duds Fashion Contest or indulge at the Doggie Spa. Their people can enjoy dinner, a “Yappy Hour” and live and silent auctions.

The 10th annual event supports the Animal Welfare Department’s Spay/Neuter Voucher Program and helps save the lives of the animals in city shelters. The Voucher Program is critical to reducing the number of homeless animals in Albuquerque—a good thing. Dogs are encouraged to attend, in or out of fashionable duds. Humans are encouraged to wear business casual clothing. “Together We’ll Lick the Problem” starts with “Yappy Hour” at 5:30pm tomorrow at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (1901 University NE). Tickets are $100 or $750 for a table of eight. Proceeds go to Albuquerque Kennel Kompadres, the fundraising partner of Animal Welfare.
