Dog days


A good friend of mine is entering his dog, Zorra, into the "Nuts for Mutts" show on Sunday June 1st. This is an annual event here in LA that is sponsored by New Leash On Life, an organization that helps rescue and find homes for various unwanted dogs, among other things.

I don't have a dog, but I may have to go just for the crazy mix of celebrity participants. The event is hosted by Kim Basinger again this year and, along with the possibility that Alec Baldwin might show up and yell at the dogs or his ex-wife, there are many other cool celebrities that will be in attendance.

A few noteables are...

The hyper-kenetic Rip Taylor (pictured above)


Beba Deba Deep, "Buck Rogers" and "Silver Spoons" star Erin Gray


"The West Wing's" always enjoyable (and soon to be Lily Tomlin's character in the "9 to 5" Musical) Allison Janney.


The mom from "ET", Dee Wallace Stone.


Surley you know Mrs. Partidge herself, Shirley Jones (Yes I do and don't call me Shirley).


Uber-naked underwear model Antonio Sabato Jr.

Plus, many others....

So, if you happen to be in the area on Sunday and feel like hanging out with some doggies and Celebrities of Christmas Past....come on down.

If Rip Taylor shows up with the usual stock of rapid-fire glitter in his pockets, it's bound to make the dog "presents" much easier to spot as the day progresses.

When I saw the "glitter" comment in your email I KNEW it was going to be Rip Taylor!! Jesus H. Christ, in God's name did I know that??! I hope he shows up at Pride....minus the Rip Taylor 9000 on his head. Funny stuff, Ken.

You really need to market a celebrity line of toupees. Between the Shatner 300 and the Rip Taylor 9000...I think you're on to something. You may have to spend part of your Sunday with Rip.

It was supposed to say "Shatner 3000" not 300.

The 300-series is very outdated and had a variety of follicle and adhesive issues.
