Nicky Whelan, the Ramsey Street beauty and husband, former NFL star Kerry Rhodes along with their pet bulldog Yoda were on hand to help lovely Lisa Lovely Lisa Vanderppump celebrate her second Annual World Day Day on June 25th.
Hosted by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Lisa Vanderpump, the fabulous Block Party and Street Fair attracted a crowd in the thousands with canine companions numbering in the hundreds as well. Third Street between Crescent Heights and La Jolla was closed from 10:30 am to 3 pm for the festivities.
Starstruck pet guardians (that’s WeHo talk) and their bejeweled pooches, packed the glam and glitzy pet palace, Vanderpump Dogs for a chance to take selfie’s and poochies with the ever gracious proprietor Lisa Vanderpump and her charming husband, Ken Todd.
Cast Members of Vanderpump Rules, Tom Sandoval, Scheana “Marie” Shay, Ariana Madix and Peter Madrigal were also in attendance and posed for photos on the pink carpet and circulated throughout the crowd.
About World Dog Day
World Dog Day, started by The Vanderpump Dog Foundation in 2016, is a day that focuses on the celebration of dogs! The day aims to draw attention to the amazing, empathetic creatures that dogs are, while raising awareness about global dog abuse. Together, we can create a better world for dogs, both domestically and internationally.
On May 22, 2016, Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, hosted the first ever World Dog Day in West Hollywood, CA. The event, which focused on the celebration of dogs and awareness of global dog abuse, was an enormous success.
“I think it’s a day where we all come together and we celebrate the wonderful creatures in our lives. It’s all about creating noise. When you create noise, you’ll be heard. We are a voice for the voiceless, but I think by making noise, we can implement change, and that’s what we’re doing.” — Lisa Vanderpump
