Doggy Style

He’s been waiting on the couch all day. His nails are freshly trimmed and his stylist gave him a sexy new seasonal do. Why keep your number one wingman, your adorable pooch, on the bench? Tonight you don’t have to. Thanks to Yappy Hour on Las Olas, your furriest companion can join you for a swank evening of well-deserved cocktails, flush with the stylish company of other animal lovers.

A relatively new event series, Yappy Hours have attracted hundreds of animal/human couples for each installation. Historic candy shop Kilwins jumps into the action by dipping puppy biscuits in puppy-safe white chocolate ($1 for a small bone, $2 for a larger snack), that way Fido has a sumptuous reward while you chomp your candied apple. Boutiques like Herringbone & Hound replace hydrants as the meeting place du jour; where else can you shop for luxury labels while Rex sniffs the matching, four-legged versions? Of course, the serious tail-wagging happens at the Riverside Hotel. That’s where author JoJo Harder will be signing copies of her latest book Diva Dogs: A Style Guide to Living the Fabulous Life. What’s that? You want to enter the dog/human look alike contest, but all you’ve got is a lousy goldfish with a lazy eye? No worries. Humane Society will be on site doing pet adoptions from 6 to 9, so you might just find your next great love waiting for you, tongue askew. Get the rundown at mylasolas.com. Start scouting potential four-legged suitors at humanebroward.com.
