Watergate Dogs Lend A Paw

Where famous names reside, paws follow. It is therefore no surprise that the dogs of Watergate decided to contribute to their needier brethren. Their wishes were answered when Sarah Williams and Stef Woods joined forces to create the very first Watergate Dogs Calendar. There are back stories as there always are with celebrities.

A special perk of residence in Watergate South is having Buzz Beler as a neighbor. Buzz often hangs doggie bags full of coveted bones from his Prime Rib restaurant on the doorknobs of special canine pals. Placido Domingo has been known to hold the elevator door for Sarah's Jack Russell Jackie O ("Miss March" in the calendar), who has also charmed former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and neighbor Tandy Dickerson.

In June, Leader Dole ("Mr. January") hosted a birthday party and presented his canine friends with gift bags, doggie birthday cake, paw print napkins and all the trimmings. Jackie O became the self-appointed godmother to Leader's pups ("Little Decembers") when he recently joined a miniature white Schnauzer in an arranged marriage.

The results of the privileged pets' various meanderings are available in a calendar which can be ordered for $20 at Watergatedogs@gmail.com. All proceeds benefit the organization through which Stef Woods adopted Flake ("Miss February"), the Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART www.hart90.org). This no-kill animal rescue/support group fosters and cares for stray, abused and unwanted dogs and cats until they find their forever homes.
