Did you know National Dog Day is tomorrow, August 26th?? If you said, “Snort no!” then don’t worry – you’re in good company. We’re a liiiittle embarrassed to say as a dog-centric company, but before yesterday, we didn’t know either! But thanks to our PAWESOME friend, Marii Nguyen Langjahr of the Jax & Friends Chicago Meetup Group, she informed us that there is not only a National Dog Day tomorrow (AWESOME), but there is ALSO a dog fashion show at the uber-dog-friendly Talbott’s Hotel! (WHAAAAT?!) Yes. A dog fashion show! *AND* that (thanks in no small part to Marii) the Talbott Hotel wants Snort Monster to rock our pop-up shop! (EXCUSEMEWHAAAAAAAT?!!)
Some notable points of pawesomeness:
• You can bring your dog!
• 100% of the $10 entry fee will be donated to PAWS Chicago.
• Emceed by LeeAnn Trotter of NBC 5 Chicago
• Neighborhood pups will walk the red carpet decked out in doggie fashions from Tails in the City and Vanderpump Pets.
• Two adoptable dogs from PAWS Chicago will make a cameo on the catwalk.
• Signature Cocktail called the Poochy Collins by Mercadito Kitchen will be available for doggie moms and dads.
Here’s the Talbott Hotel’s invite for the event:
As you may know, Jeff and I give $1 of each tee sold to a different Snort Monster Friend of the Month, but in spirit this Chicago-centric event, we’ll donate 25% of our sales to PAWS Chicago.
We originally had printing scheduled for later in the week, but we’ve bumped up our printing schedule so we can offer some brand new Chicago-centric Snort gear for dog fashion show goers tomorrow night. WE CAN’T WAIT! (And, I gotta say, we’re pretty excited to try that Poochy Collins signature cocktail too.)
And don’t forget, if you’re in the Chicagoland area and you’re looking to hang out with fellow Snort-faced doggie mamas and papas, be sure to join the Jax & Friends Chicago Meetup Group! As members ourselves, we love meeting new Snortastic pup parents.
Have you ever been to a dog fashion show before? We’re anxious to see if the dogs will be divas on the runway. Also, do you think there will be an Anna Wintour front-row sighting? I guess we’ll find out! Let us know by commenting below!
