2013 New York Pet Fashion Show brings out the dogs before Westminster

The 2013 New York Pet Fashion Show featured a packed evening of events, from awards to a costume contest to a runway show (fitting, considering that the event takes place during New York Fashion Week).  Held on Feb. 8 at the Hotel Pennsylvania – a host hotel for many of the Westminster Dog Show competitors – this year’s theme was The Roaring ’20s.  The show brought out a number of celebrity dogs and owners, pet fashion designers and sponsors promoting all sorts of products for pets such as synthetic grass, healing jewelry (also for people) and aromatherapy oils.  Here’s a look at the event in pictures:
