Kudos to Lena Dunham, creator of “Girls” for adopting a dog from BARC! This month she became a proud dog mom to Lamby Dunham, a sweet, twelve pound pooch. We know she’ll take good care of Lamby because they were spotted at Vinegar Hill Vet for a wellness exam. Perhaps she’ll create a role for Lamby in Girls or enter him in the Brooklyn Mutt Show.
Prospect Park’s legendary Ghost Dog is up for adoption at Sean Casey Animal Rescue. This feral pooch roamed the green space without an owner for years. We’re glad Ghost Dog was rescued and hope he finds the perfect forever home.
The Emergency Boarding Facility for Hurricane Sandy Pets created by the ASPCA is closing this month. As of the first week in January, 129 happy reunions between pets and loving owners have taken place.
And now for a bonus news tidbit with no connection to Brooklyn. French photographer Erwan Fichou has created a series of pictures showing “dogs and their masters wearing coats or sweaters carefully knitted from lovingly gathered dog hair”. I joke about making a sweater each time I brush my Wheaten but some crazy folks out there have actually done this!
