Come celebrate the Dog Film Festival’s arrival in Los Angeles at the Pooch Tea Party hosted by the festival’s honorary hostess, Melissa Rivers.
The Dog film Festival 2016-17 is dedicated to the Memory of quintessential dog lover, Joan Rivers. Ms Rivers appreciated her rescued dogs as her most constant companions. She went out of her way to find dogs for adoption and embraced them unconditionally, whatever their quirks. No matter where Joan was or how busy, her dogs’ health and happiness were always foremost in her mind. We love her for that, and we do this in her honor.
The festival opens with a pooch tea party. And what is a tea party without Alice and her friends? I am the official couturier for the festival. I’m a huge Alice fan, and then I saw the promo for the new Tim Burton movie, “Alice through the Looking Glass”. It all fit! I decided to bring some of that magic to the party. Mila and Ezri from, the film, “Weiner Dog Nationals” will be a delightful version of tweedle dee and tweedle dum. I’m making them cute girls, because we need more female roles, and because these two sisters are adorable. The fabulous Miss Coco Puffz will be Alice, Woofie will play the Mad Hatter, And Bear, the boy who loves dresses, is the queen of hearts.
