Fashion for Paws 7th Annual Runway Show for Washington Humane Society

This was the first time I’ve heard of Fashion for Paws and I’m not sure why. If it hadn’t been for my friend, Timur, who mentioned that he is one of the 90 models currently fundraising money for the Washington Humane Society and gets a chance to walk the runway with his dog, Leo, I would’ve been oblivious to this awesome cause.

If you don’t know this by now, I have a huge soft spot when it comes to animals. Heck, I even petsit my friend’s dogs or even fostered a dog just to fill the void until I can have one of my very own. My heart has been set on getting a shih-tzu for some time now. We used to have a family peke who sadly passed away four years ago after 11 years together and I still miss her dearly.

Hubby once asked me why I would want the heartache of having a dog who doesn’t have a long lifespan, and I told him that I wouldn’t trade the 11 years I’ve had with “Gean Bean” ever. I still tear up when I think of her. You girls know what I’m talking about, right? Pets are most definitely like family and I’ve always said that my ideal family would be 1.5 – a kid and a dog. ^_^

So, it was fitting for me to support my friend and donated to the cause. If you also love animals and want to donate ($1, $5, $10, etc), feel free to do so here. The event is scheduled for April 13, 2013 at the National Building Museum in DC – a beautiful venue which I had an opportunity to shoot there last year.

Anyways, what is up with this weather, huh? We are getting all sorts of residual winter storms coming towards the East Coast. Well, hope you all have an awesome Friday and please stay warm!! =)
