Broadway Barks For Bernadette Peters and Kramer!


Don't you just love it when celebrities use their fame to do good for animals?! Well-known animal advocate Bernadette Peters created an event a decade ago with pal Mary Tyler Moore called Broadway Barks, to raise money for New York-area shelters. Year after year, she lends her support to rescue groups and promotes shelter adoptions . . . and even puts her metaphorical money where her mouth is being dog mommy to rescued pups as well. Check out her mixed-terrier pooch, Kramer, who she rescued from a local shelter and describes as a sensitive and goofy Kevin Kline type. In its tenth year this July 12, learn how the Broadway Barks event has inspired a children's title (and see pictures of her starring pooch at yesterday's book release party) when you read more.

Broadway Barks is a book about a homeless dog in the big city who takes an unlikely path to stardom by following a stranger one day. It includes a CD with a touching tune called "Kramer's Song" dedicated to her pooch – and sung by Bernadette herself. Although the dog in the book is named Douglas, the super-cute illustrations look a lot like lil Kramer don't you think?
