Puttin' on the Dog - Part 1

Oh what a night! For one night only, the world-famous Rainbow Room in Manhattan became the Rain BOW WOW Room as dozens of gorgeous doggies from across the globe gathered to cut a rug. (Okay, and a few peed on it as well.)


Mango the Relentlessly Huge, producer of Beagadoon, arrived with his beautiful girlfriend MJ. They danced right off the elevator!

The dance floor was packed with WireFox Trotters - Rosie Marie was a vision in her custom-designed rose-colored gown with her beau Harry Pugnacious. (After tonight, I don't think we'll have to prod Harry to ask Rosie out again!) Auntie Bailey was stunning in her metallic gown from the House of Asta - she certainly got an appreciative wolf-whistle or two from Joey. Mason Dixie and Alfie were a graceful duo...he's one regal beagle! Even little Jazzi and Mr. Digsby Mac Feegie danced along to the beat of Benny Gooddog Orchestra.

Speaking of youngsters, Lacie surprised everyone by bringing along Dyos as her date for the evening. As promised, he picked her up on his set of wheels. Such a shame he feel asleep at 10:00 p.m.... Lacie was the inspiration for this original gown from the House of Asta.

Recently officially adopted Bobby was ready to celebrate and the exotic Nessa caught his eye as he arrived. They were inseparable all evening!

Of course, no one could match the elegance of Stanley of Gooberstan and his long-time love Asta Urbanista on the dance floor, especially not in her flowing House of Asta original. (Gee, it sure would be a perfect time for a proposal, Stanley...hint, hint...)

And speaking of Aires,  a new romance may be in the air for the lovely Auntie Martha, who also received the House of Asta makeover treatment, and the handsome young Scruff. Who could imagine Martha's gracefulness once she lost those sensible shoes?

While the orchestra took a break, the single gals gathered in the Ladies Lounge for champagne, gossip, and some dating advice from Lacie.  Lorenza's tan glowed against her turquoise one-shouldered House of Lorenza gown, while Kira showed off her floofy shoulders in pale lilac. And Persephone shimmered in a gold evening coat and matching sheath. No doubt these ladies will be handing out their dog licence numbers to plenty of eager gents before the night is done...

Taking advantage of the stunning views of the Empire State Building, Baby Rocket showed Hamish the latest steps. Then this old dog showed Baby a few tricks of his own! Willow looked every inch a supermodel in her figure-hugging red halter dress from the House of Asta. Just Harry was proud as punch to be escorting her to the dance floor. Meanwhile, Mango the Maltese Kiddo and his Crystal snuggled and shared a glass or two of Cristal...
 
And what was more stunning? The view of Manhattan or Morgan and Ludo van Puppy in perfect harmony? Methinks we may have another romance in the makings!!! How could Ludo not be swept off his paws?




Who could have believed our busy aviatrix Ruby Bleu could look so divine in palest pink? Certainly not Mack who never left her side for a moment. Meanwhile Stella of Gooberstan, a star dancer in Beagadoon, and her boyfriend and co-star Taffy demonstrated that you don't always need an airplane to take flight! Miss Stella was dressed for the evening in House of Asta, head to paw.


Oops, more doggies are arriving...including my absolutely stunning Rosie-Posie! Sigh...she has truly taken my breath away. More photos to come...but for now, gotta DANCE!

omdog everyone looks wonderful!!! We can't believe how civilized Lacie looks, even. What a gorgeous group of dog friends we all have!! Thanks for arranging this wonderful weekend!! We can't wait to see more doggies!!

Stanley said...

Petey!

You're amazing, and you sure know how to throw a party! Whoever your photographer is, they've done a FAB job. (They even make me look like I can dance ~ had no idea I looked like Fred AstAire!)

Your Rosie is gorgeous, my Asta is bootiful and twirling around the dance floor on my arm, and everydog is having a BLAST! Can't wait to see the rest of the photos, man.

Page 6 will only have one thing to talk about!

Goober love,
Stanley

Martha Basset said...

Oh my goodness - we have just got up this morning after the wonderful night!
The pictures are fabulous! We cant believe there are more to come.
We are over the moon with the dresses!
Asta is just so clever - such an eye for design.
She has made the most of every dog's figure!
Once again we are delighted to have clothes that draw the eye away from our lack of height and round bodies!
Asta has made the most of our assets - our ears, of course!!!
Well done Petey for organising a lovely night. We were so pleased to see Bobby there looking so happy!
It is amazing that his recent adoption has taken years off him!!
All our love
Aunties Martha & Bailey xx

Maggie and Mitch said...

How BEAUTIFUL everyone looks!
We're sure missing out on a great pawty but someone needs to supervise laying this stoopid chestnut floor!
We can't wait to hear more about this fabulous pawty!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Bobby said...

Howl of happiness, I look so handsome and Nessa looks so beatiful. Infact all the ladies do, and the boys so handesome. Just do not tell me the Mop was there. He thinks he is Casanova.

Toffee said...

*pant* pant* pant*
Oh Petey! I am truly out of breath - partly because Eric Square looks so debonaire in his Tux and partly b/c I haven't danced this much since the long car ride without a potty break!!

Might I say - you and Rosie should really consider going on dancing with the stars!

Mango said...

That tuxedo was quite slimming, don't you think? What a magical evening. I am exhausted.

I hope Lacie wasn't creating more converts to her wily ways with those other gals. They all seem so nice.

Thanks for being such a good host.

Slobbers,
Mango

Rosie said...

Petey I cannot thank you enough for planning such a fabulous party. It was a dream come true and Harry and I had a wonderful time. The pictures are amazing and I will remember this night always.
Loves from pugs,
Rosie Marie

Mack said...

Thanks Petey my man for throwing such a great pawty!
Everything was so elegant....especially my Ruby!

Jake of Florida said...

My young brother, Just Harry, has never been so happy since you persuaded Princess Willow to come to this elegant event and shae a dance or two with him. She looked even more beautiful than before -- and who knew he could be so dashing.

And I am totally barkless at how elegant everyone looked. We sure do dress up fine!!!

The House of Asta and the House of Kira will certainly make a name for themselves in the new runway season in New York. If you can make it there, you can mae it anywhere!!!

We can't wait to see the other red carpet celebs and photos.

Petey, Asta -- you are the best!!!

Jake

Lucia said...

Ciao bello Petey!

Playbows to you, mio amico, for putting together il favoloso evento. Le fotografie sono incredibili!! Honestly, theBUSTER and I had un meraviglioso time! (Right, dolce Busterio?)

Tanti baci!
Lucia

Ludo van puppy said...

Petey I has only just managed to be able to put paw to keyboard. I is exhausted! But very happy. Think I might have overdone it and my head's feeling a little fuzzy.

I was very pleased to see my friend Morgan as my beautiful date. Didn't she look so elegant and lovely.

A very excellent first date for my new life as a man dog. Thanks for throwing a totally super pawsome party Petey! Everyone looked amazing and I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures. I must say the beagle sisters especially blew me away!!
~lickies, Ludo

Butchy and Snickers said...

Oh our dawgness, we had such a wonderful time at the dance. Every doggie looked so gorgeous! Snickers was so happy to be dancing with Gussie. Good thing we left Ioway before the snow started. Think we'll be staying here for a few days. (Snickers got approval from Mama, heheheh!)
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Sophie Brador said...

Petey, Keep your eye balls peeled! Mom has a post planned in the next few days called "Ode to Petey."

She's finally gotten back to blogging. Lazy mom.

Hamish Westie said...

Oh my poor poor old head. Sad to say, us Scotsdogs do have a weakness for alcohol, especially when its in the form of champagne and it's free!

I can't remember too much, except that every one looked fantastic, I had a totally wonderful time and I think there was some wee lassie called Baby who taught me a few new moves on the dance floor.

Thank you so much Petey for organising such a splendid night. Please reassure me I didn't do or say anything to embarrassing after the tenth glass of bubbly.....

Moco said...

The Rainbow Room will never see the likes of anything so grand again.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Giggle Giggle...oh my...can I have another glass of the bubbly, Petey??? This is a totally fabbers pawty!!! I can't believe how elegant everydog is!!! Did you see how handsome Dyos is?? Too bad he fell asleep at 10pm...Joey is a divine dancer...and all of my other young swains...Arch, Butchy, Noah, Mango, Tanner, you...the Turkey...how womantic can ya get!!!

The foodie is pawfectly scrumptious too Petey...however did ya plan all of this???

Aunts Martha and Bailey so regal and graceful.Then Lacie cradle snatching with Dyos. Boy oh boy it was lucky he was out of his diapers for the evening and didn't need to use her bidet.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Wowie the Rainbow Room was all I imaginned it to be. Hamish was a wee bit wobbly on his feet, but managed to take my number down for future fetes! I felt like it was my coming out party. Such a gorgeous dress you fixed me up with. Only wish I could have kept the jewels!! Hootie was too shy to come out from under the table, but next time he should be more comfortable. Smooches, BabyRocketDog

Harry Pugalicious said...

Hey Petey! Thanks again for plannings this trip - me and Rosie hads a great time!
