While West Hollywood prides itself as being a dog-friendly community, it’s clear from this past weekend’s events that North Hollywood is the pup-friendly community.
In the video posted above, comedian Ben Kawaller visits the first annual L.A. Puppy Pride (and the third annual puppy contest), which took place last Saturday at Metropolitan Community Church in North Hollywood and was followed by a party at Bullet Bar, also in North Hollywood.
While Puppy Pride opened on Thursday at Bullet Bar (which also hosted a Friday event), it wrapped up on Sunday with a closing party at the Eagle L.A. And the winner? Pup Rush.
Matthew Mullins, aka Pup Pup Ash-Tray Boner Kain, and his lover and handler, Dan Lovell, are the producers of the event. Mullins describes it in detail on the L.A. Puppy Pride Facebook page.
“We saw pups from Seattle, Atlanta, San Francisco, Austin, New York, San Diego and even Cleveland out here just to show support for this little opus of ours that every single pup is a part of in Los Angeles,” Mullins said. “These are pups doing what they do best, showing their love for one another with an open mind and their paws out reaching towards a better future for our pack.”
