It’s been a long time since I’ve done the Halloween ho stroll, to borrow a phrase from the highlarious Michael K of Dlisted. I’m more likely to dress for the holiday as a non-sexy Anne Boleyn, Adam Ant, member of Devo, or random Mod girl. That said, I figured that for a drinks date on […]

After Henry the Pekingese died last December, I wanted to get a pug. When that didn’t work out, I decided I wouldn’t get another dog for a while. But then, last week, I saw this face online. Cheddar the Pekingese was at Social Tees Animal Rescue, where I spotted a Peke in 2010. I always […]

I brought home my late, great Pekingese Mr. Chubbs from the city pound on May 10, 1996. At my apartment, I placed him on a new dog pillow and put a chew toy next to him. We contemplated each other for a while. I’m always nervous on the first day with a new pet. I […]

For  Throwback Thursday, here’s a May June 1996 photo of my first Pekingese, Mr. Chubbs, shortly after I brought him home from the pound and cut his long matted hair off. There was a cute dog under there! I think Chubbs looks a little bewildered by the recent changes in his life, not to mention […]

It’s my birthday today and I do declare that the vintage Jacques Tiffeau dress I wore to dinner at the Four Seasons tonight might be as old as I am. I haven’t owned it my whole life, of course. I bought it in 2009 — from eBay, I think. What Wendy Wore Dress: Vintage Jacques […]

Thanks to Vogue Gioiello — an Italian edition of Vogue that’s devoted to fine jewelry — for including my Victoria buckle ring in its December edition! My ring appeared on a page called “Belt Mania.” I got a little emotional seeing this ring in print in light of Henry the dog’s passing last week. This […]

Henry the Pekingese was adopted from the ASPCA in June 2006. He left this world this morning, released from his many ailments by his people. You’re only a dog, old fellow; a dog, and you’ve had your day; But never a friend of all my friends has been truer than you alway. — Julian S. […]

Last month, I laughed out loud when I saw this “Bust the Myth” promotional campaign for shelter pets. “Shelter pets are not broken. Shelter pets are not damaged goods,” declared Adopt-a-Pet.com on Facebook, next to a cartoon of an adorably disintegrating cat-and-dog pair. It’s true that, if you’re sensible, you can pick out perfectly healthy […]

It’s National Dog Day and I’ve been looking for an excuse to post a photo recently taken by my gorgeous sister. Those aren’t her pugs. She just spotted them while she was out for a walk and they were out for a drive. The “duh?!” expression on the pug on the right reminds me of […]
