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

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?

Let me just say she still looks fantastic! Good for her. The more awareness that is brought to adopting shelter pets the better we all are for it.
