Mallory and Eleanor take their Puggy New Year attire seriously. Or at least the dogs owner, Amanda Kleps, makes sure they do. We have no shame, says Kleps, organizer of the Cleveland Pug Meet-Up Group. Mallory will be in a stunning, sparkling velvet-tulle number, and Eleanor will be in red satin. It doesnt faze them, because they get more attention.
Kleps and crew are throwing the New Years party today complete with appetizers, booze, and desserts so that pugs and their owners can ring in 2006. WXTM-FM 92.3 DJ Igor will handle the turntables. But the stars for the night will be the pooches with the pushed-in snouts.
They can be divas, but Ive never met a nasty pug, says Kleps. Every pug Ive ever met is a sweetheart. Once you own a pug, youre part of our cult, and theres no getting out.
