Animal Fair and Wendy Diamond’s Yappy Hour

It was a fair mix of dogs and people at the launch of Wendy Diamond’s new book It’s a Dog’s World at the Muse Hotel on Tuesday, February 9, 2010.

Supporting the Canine Queen that night were socialites Carl and Valerie Kempner, David Hochberg, Jane Pontarelli with her Maltese Lulu, model Maggie Rizer, cello goddess Maya Beiser, Iron Chef judge and Tony-winning actress Cady Huffman, Fox News babes Courtney Friel and Kimberly Guilfoyle, Conner Paola and Valentina de Angelis of Gossip Girl and Bravo TV housewives (and ex-wives) Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan. Other notable canine attendees included Ginger, the Muse Hotel’s Pomeranian director of Pet Relations and Lucky Diamond, Wendy’s Maltese co-author of It’s a Dog’s World.

Canine guests enjoyed a savory doggy buffet trio of Chicken and Beef; Grilled Beefsteak and Vegetable and Chicken, Brown Rice, Fruit and Vegetable provided by Kibbles and Bits. Humans chatted over hound-d’oeuvres and puptails. The Humane Society of New York provided rentable dogs to see if they could spark a connection with attendees who came canine-less, a trick to be used in Diamond’s upcoming 15 city Yappy Hour® rescue/book tour kicking off this March. We hear Gossip Girl’s Conner Paola fell in puppy love with Toby the rescue mutt. The event benefited the Humane Society of New York.
