Business Cards For The Masses

Masses of dogs, that is. I thought I was the only dog on the planet who was savvy enough to have his own business card, but I wasn't thinking of those smart-as-a-whip New York pooches.
An article in Thursday's Times, titled, "They Bark, They Rule" talked about a book party ( and happily a benefit for the Humane Society of New York)  to celebrate the publication of "It's A Dog's World: The Savvy Guide to Four Legged Living,"by a gal named Wendy Dianmond. They had a "Yappy Hour" in the basement of some fancy hotel for both the dogs and their human companions.
And guess what? The dogs were passing out their own business cards! But it didn't sound like those dogs actually had their own businesses, or even their own blog, like I do. Here's what the article said: "As it happened, many of the dogs had business cards. Ginger, a teacup Pomeranian, had one that proclaimed her director of pet relations at the Muse [that's the name of the fancy hotel that hosted the "Yappy Hour], and Eli's noted that he was 'The Celebrity Chihuahua'."
Read the article yourself and see what you think: www.nytimes.com/2010/02/11/garden/11seen.html
Has the business world gone to the dogs?

Are you kidding me? Eli works all the time as a model and does have his own blog. If you google Eli the Chihuahua you will see he is all over the place, constantly walking red carpets, and is very well known in NYC. He is even in the imdb and just filmed for another show on a major network and will be in Bloomingdale's spring catalogue. Eli rules!

Bocci said...

Yikes! Eli does "rule"! I'll look forward to seeing him in the Bloomies catalogue, for sure.
And I am pea green with envy-Although I'm not up to the runway work, I'd be great in a dog food commercial or at least on a dog food package-I'm the all American terrier-mix!
Any contacts you'd like to share?
