St. Pawtrick's Day

Wow this past week was very lovely and although I enjoyed myself thoroughly, I am tired. On Wednesday night, our good friend Wendy hosted a St. Pawtrick’s Day pawty for me and my friends here at the Humane Society of New York. So many cute outfits and fun times and the best part was that all the proceeds raised are going to a number of the sick animals we have been treating. Wendy is always so caring and wonderful with all the things she does for our animals. We love her and speaking of luck, we are so lucky to have friends like these!

The next day was the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. Did you know that it was the 250th anniversary? That’s 1750 in dog years!

Hope you had a great weekend and got some fresh spring air. Til next time, Willis.

Here's a photo of my friend Winky with his

dad Robert and our friend Wendy.

I Went To The Dentist!

There are very few things I fear, but this phrase is one of them: "This is your friendly dental reminder." Saturday was not my favorite of days, as I had to get a dental. But boy am I relieved I saw my friend Denise! So fresh and clean feeling, and healthy too. Look how pretty I look.

The cleaning reminded me that I wanted to remind everyone that it is very important to get pets their dental exams. We can't gargle or do it ourselves so please help us out. Vets can do the major cleanings but owners can do small things too!

Happy brushing! You and your pet will appreciate it.

Bunny Hop

Now that I started talking about rabbits, I was thinking about how rabbits are just like me. We need a lot of care and attention. If you are thinking of getting a rabbit, think hard and take your time to make sure it is the right decision. Rabbits can live up to 12 years and that's a long commitment! Fun fact: Did you know in the Chinese New Year, this is the year of the rabbit? A lot of people are talking about getting these little furry pets and I just wanted to make sure you get all the facts.

The Flying Bunny

You never know what your day will bring and who you are going to meet. In my most recent adventure, we went to a taping of Nate Berkus (still awaiting air date!) so some of my adoptable friends could model. Before you go on the show, you wait in the green room. While we were waiting, this spunky little blonde girl spotted my friend Buttercup and came in to say hello.

Turns out her name is Annika Vrklan and she was a guest on the show as well. She is a Guinness World Record holder for her skateboarding and she is only six! When she skates, she wears these really cute helmets and one of them has pink bunny ears where she got her nickname "The Flying Bunny".

It just so happens I got a set just like em!

We can't wait until she comes back to New York City to visit us. Best of luck Annika!

You can find more information about Annika on her facebook page, HERE.
