"Hugs for Whiskas" (alt. title: the funniest picture in my inbox today)

I believe this is "Whiskas" Update: This dog's name is Brooklyn!

Got this press release in my inbox today:

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Starting Valentine’s Day drop off at Brooklyn Attitude Hair & Body, 135 Ballston Avenue, Saratoga Springs; cat food, dog food, pet toys, treats and/or litter valued at $10.00 or more and a stylist will apply 1 Hair Treats, Reusable, Red Hair Extension. All collected goods will be distributed to our local animal shelters.

As a pet owner (12 cats and 1 dog) MaryAnn (Guerriero, of Brooklyn Attitude) is always thinking of ways to help in pet adoption. After reading about animal shelters struggling for funds and an overabundance of cats and dogs she came up with her idea. She hopes to collect over $2000.00 worth of goods and hopes to take “Hugs for Whiskas” to the national level next year.

MaryAnn has teamed up with BackStage Commerce. BackStage Commerce will be the official Hair Extensions sponsor of “Hugs for Whiskas” they have donated 200 Red Extensions.

Sounds like a good cause, so if you're an animal lover get over to Brooklyn Attitude next week.
Also, I could look at that picture of Whiskas all day. In fact, I plan to. I printed it out and taped it to my cubicle. 


Update: Got a comment from the Brooklyn Attitude folks, the pup's name is Brooklyn (not Whiskas as I mistakenly said), still cute thought!

Hi Emily,
Thank you for the blog. Actually our dogs name is Brooklyn. Whiskas stands for the cats and dogs that need our help in shelters.
We hope to see you next week
MaryAnn & Glenn

Thanks for the update MaryAnn & Glenn!
Is the pup named for the salon or is the salon named for the pup? Or are they both named for the borough?

MaryAnn & I were born and raised in Brooklyn. We moved to Saratoga around 17 years ago. We signed our lease to open Brooklyn Attitude the first week of January 2003 and we adopted our dog Brooklyn from Adirondack Save a Stray 1 month later on Valentines Day. We also have rescued and/or adopted 12 cats!
