expensive dog weddingThe Most Expensive Dog Wedding Ever occurred last year between Baby Hope Diamond (a Coton de Tulear, right) and Chilly Pasternak (a poodle, left) to take the Guiness Book of World Records spot for the most expensive pet wedding ever at over $250k.

The dog wedding took place at the Jumeriah Essex House Hotel in NC’s Central Park, organized by a celebrity wedding planner featured: $30,000 of flowers, a $6000 dog wedding gown, $5000 sushi spread, a $15,000 band. The ceremony was officiated by Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog.

Attendees included Kanye West, Betty White, and Barbara Walters.

Most expensive dog wedding in history

My initial reaction of disgust at this event quickly dissolved when I read that the wedding was organized by animal rescue advocate Wendy Diamond, founder of Animal Fair magazine. Basically, all of the wedding’s lavish goods and services were donated, with proceeds all going to the Humane Society of New York.

OK, so this was a just a fun and creative way to raise money for dogs; good work! I’ll save any disgust for when the Kardashians have their dogs marry, and break this record.

Emily Grace Reeves And Her Bunny





Hannah Montana child actress Emily Grace Reeves and her adorable pup Bunny showed up at the Teen Choice Awards Gifting Sweet in Hollywood, CA where she and BFF Noah Cyrus had wax molds made of their hands which will be auctioned off at a later date.

Many stars are participating in an event to help raise awareness about a little-known animal shelter disaster hitting the U.S. due to the economic crisis. CA Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, because of the CA budget crisis, has recently ended a  state mandate to hold stray animals in the shelters for 6 days, resulting in more euthanasias; some as soon as only 3 days!

There will be dozens of pets up for adoption from Tails of The City Animal Rescue at the event and celebrity guests will take their pictures with the pets to increase their chances for adoption. Rocket Dog, Tivo and Jet Blue are donating shoes, Tivos signed by celebrities and airline tickets for auction with the proceeds going to Tails of The City. Hence, the “gifting” back to the stars!

Somebody looks like they’ve been playing “hairdresser”! I think Bunny looks super-cute with pink ears though!

Bethenny Frankel and Cookie are Shopaholics!



Real (non) Housewives of NYC, Bethenny Frankel and her Lhasa mix pooch, Cookie attended the shopaholics Nirvana, “Super Saturday 12”, August 1, 2009 in Water Mill, NY.

Super Saturday is Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s 12th annual Super Saturday was hosted by Donna Karan, Kelly Ripa, InStyle, and Blake Lively and features a designer garage sale, gourmet dining and exciting activities for kids and adults alike!

For some reason, Bethenny refused to be photographed with her boyfriend, Jason Hoppy at the event, but allowed him to escort Cookie and carry her bags around all day. Cookie loves Jason and the feeling is obviously mutual, so no problems there!

Maybe that’s her way of getting Jason on her “Skinny Girl” agenda!

Prince William Checks Out His Charities



Prince William of Great Britain participated in the 75th anniversary celebration July 24, 2009 in Cumbria England,  of Mountain Rescue in the UK by going on a fell walk with a group of kids from one of his other charities, Centrepoint, Great Britain’s greatest charity for homeless and socially excluded youth.

William is a patron of both charities and actively encourages sharing experiences amongst them. As part of the festivities were challenges and opportunities for the kids to learn about life in the mountains, coping with weather conditions and  river rescues and searches. At the end of the day, trophies were awarded and everyone sat down to a bbq.

It looks like the dogs had just as much fun as the kids did and I’m pretty sure they were warmer!
