There comes a day in every broadcaster’s life when he must face the inevitable threshold; when he must look into the chasm, into the void…and embrace the great, unavoidable benchmark of his existence.
He must do a charming and heartwarming animal story.
Sunday, April 4th, 2010 is that day, on Outlook Portland, anyway.
Often, the animals in such stories are costumed or other otherwise bedecked in irresistibly-adorable clothing…and I will not disappoint you on that score.
The occasion? An event called Boutiques Unleashed…created by, and for the benefit of, a Portland institution: Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital, specifically, their Pet Loss Support Program, which helps pet owners of every stripe work through the grief that accompanies the death of a beloved animal.
We’ll be joined by Tiffini Mueller, Director of Marketing & Development for Dove Lewis; by Enid Traisman, founder of the Dove Lewis Pet Loss Support Program, and by Suzanne Hein of LexiDog Boutique and Social Club.
And, on the off-chance you needed more impetus to watch this Sunday’s episode, I give you this:
There. That did it, right? I thought so.
