I always look into the windows of pet stores. I think we all do, it’s hard to ignore the small, cuddly pups romping and playing. But I’ve also learned that we can’t ignore where many of these animals come from. I love dogs. I always have. I’m one of those people who are afraid to <… >

Robert Verdi’s fabulous “Lux Lab” hosted a Shabby Dog Brunch during New York’s Fashion Week.
