You know what they say, a dog is a person’s best-friend, and what would we do without our four-legged BFFs? Dogs are more than just a pet – they’re the best companion, they can instantaneously put a smile on everyone’s face, and they’re an amazing part of the family. That’s why we celebrate our furry friends today and everyday. The stupendous philanthropist, entrepreneur, and television star, Lisa Vanderpump and her incredible husband, Ken Todd had a remarkable time celebrating the 2nd Annual World Dog Day yesterday, June 25, 2017 with their extraordinary and impactful foundation, The Vanderpump Dog Foundation.
The whole block was closed down for one special day filled with fun, great music, over 35 vendors, and a whole lot of doggy love. From start to finish, the spectacular event was jam-packed with so much excitement. The event kicked off with a terrific dog agility park show and was followed by the pink carpet, where all of the fan-favorite and sensational celebrities made their way to pose for photographers and show their support towards the magnificent event and marvelous Vanderpump Dog Foundation. Celebrities in attendance at the event included James Kennedy, Asia Monet Ray, Allison King, Priscilla Ford, and many more. Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd had an exceptional time catching up with friends and taking time to take pictures with fans and supporters who came out to the awesome event.
It was certainly a wonderful day celebrating our fantastic, four-legged friends. Adding onto all of the fun, the event also had live performances from Nash Overstreet and Symon as well as an epic DJ set by James Kennedy. Afterwards, the phenomenal Lisa Vanderpump gave an inspiring and touching speech to give awareness to what the event and foundation is all about – preventing the horrors at Yulin. Lisa Vanderpump said, “While we will be celebrating World Dog Day, our hearts will be grieving and our focus remains on Yulin and bringing it to an end once and for all.” (source: press release)
Dr. John Sessa, Executive Director of The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, who was also in attendance at the event said, “We are using this day to pause and remember the lives lost in Yulin, but also to show the world exactly what a dog festival should be like, a celebration of dogs and a testament to how invaluable they are to man.”
Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd have and continue to touch the lives of many – from our furry friends to the owners themselves. They have made so many admirable efforts to change the world and help make this world a better place to live in, especially for the lovable dogs we cherish having in our lives. From a pawdicurist to a fabulous dog beauty pageant and delicious food from food trucks to enjoy throughout the day, the 2nd Annual World Dog Day presented by Zappos For Good and SynLawn was a day to remember and one that made both owners and dogs smile oh, so big.
