Doggy Fashion Show

 FREDDY’S 3rd ANNUAL 5th AVE DOGGY FASHION SHOW:

Attendance is free.  Entry is free and easy. Fashion forward Fido’s will be taking it to the streets to strut their stuff on the “catwalk.” The street will be closed to cars but open to canines, with the competition also featuring the obligatory red-carpet entrance, runway stage, prizes and a chance to pose for pupperazzi in front of the step-and-repeat. Admission is FREE.

The Doggy Fashion Show features hosts Mike Drucker and Jess Dweck, both comedy writers for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, who will emcee and provide a play-by-play of the parade of mutt-couture.

“This year we’ll be even bigger and better,” says Freddy’s co-owner and paw-ganizer Donald O’Finn.  “In addition to scoring great hosts, we’re increasing the production values including a higher stage so even the most petite pups will be visible to the crowd.”  O’Finn also counsels dog owners to think big. “We encourage all contestants to work it, because you get only one entrance. There is no such thing as too extreme.” First prize is the coveted Xena trophy, named in memory of O’Finn’s beloved pit mix, a stray who went on to become a Freddy’s regular for 20 years.

Xena inspired the show and is the namesake for the trophy:

“Pups strutted their stuff at the second annual Doggy Fashion Show at Park Slope watering hole Freddy’s Bar and the owner of the top dog said he was star-struck just walking beside his prize pooch on the runway.

“It was the most celebrity moment I’ve experienced in my life, just being near her, because cameras were flashing,” said Erik Satre of Cobble Hill, whose shih tzu-poodle mix Harley won first place. Harley took the competition by storm in a princess tiara and a costume Satre said he constructed out of Crown Royal whiskey bags, which drew plenty of howls and wolf-whistles from the audience.”~ N.Y.
