Wherever they are headed, I’m going too!

The Wisconsin Humane Society is throwing a fundraiser, “An Old Hollywoof affair.”

“Coco is a Wisconsin Humane Society alum, adopted last year. Since then he’s visited St. Luke’s Hospital and spoke to the stroke support group. Last year he wore a tweed jacket. This year he has a smoking jacket and a pipe donated from Uhle’s Smoke Shop.” I offer to hold his pipe for him, but he says he doesn’t actually like smoking.

Everyone wanted their picture taken with this particular dog.

Surveying the silent auction wares that included a palatial four poster bed for a royal creature who should weight eight pounds or less.

Would you like a Garfield poster AUTOGRAPHED BY JIM DAVIS????  Twelve year old me would!

I was attempting to surreptitiously snap a picture of his Hollywood hair, but he caught me! Generously, this star gave me his autograph with a single glance.

This beautiful person is named Angela.

 

There were plenty of spangly gowns to gawk upon.

Very gawk worthy.

This woman's dress epitomized the evening's theme.

There were many variations of that theme.

Dizzied by all the glitter, sparkling with the wine.

There was lots of petting.

This one fooled me.  I thought it was alive.

This one fooled me. I thought it was still alive.

The unwavering gaze of this couple transferred an electric current strong enough to thwart my camera's battery. There are no further pictures of this event.
