Canine Couples Don Tiaras & Tails for Doggy Prom - 42 Pups “put on the dog” at Best Friends at Walt Disney World Resort
Prom season went to the dogs this week at Best Friends Pet Care at Walt Disney World Resort. More than 40 dogs donned bow ties, boas, tiaras and tails to attend the first-ever Doggy Prom.
The canine couples walked the red carpet into the Best Friends doggy day camp room, which was decorated in a Starry Night theme with dark blue and silver streamers and stars. There was doggy dancing under the disco ball and, just like at high school proms everywhere, a doggy prom King and Queen were crowned.
The staff, wearing prom attire too, took photos of each canine couple to send home to mom and dad.
The Walt Disney Company has released the Disney Royal Ball collection, the first ever line of Quinceañera gowns inspired by the inner qualities, personalities and stories of the Disney Princesses. Designed and created in collaboration Ashdon Inc., the new gowns combine classical styling with elements of fantasy and magic to bring an air of royalty and fairy tale to young women celebrating their Quinceañera. The debut line features 21 gowns — two styles for each Disney Princess and a special new gown, “la Corona de la Princesa,” that will be added to the line each year.
“The Latino community has a strong affinity for Disney, and the Disney Royal Ball Quinceañera collection offers another avenue to make the Quinceañera celebration even more unique and meaningful for Latina teens and their families,” said Gilberto Martinez Kladt, vice president of licensing for Disney Princess. “Disney is thrilled to provide young Latinas with the opportunity to celebrate the elegance, grace and poise of their favorite Disney Princess characters on such a special and momentous day.”
Could Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson be headed to the Marvel Universe? Well, if Marvel’s Studio Head Kevin Feige has anything to say about it, he will. Feige recently went on record on how he’d love to work with the former wrestling icon, and had this to say:
I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. I’m a gigantic fan of his, I think he’s an incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven’t really met him. I don’t really know him – but I think he’s an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature. He’s awesome in Pain & Gain, he was great in G.I. Joe, he’s really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter’s always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.
