Michael's Consignment Hangs out with the NYC Dog Mom

Posted on June 11, 2019 by Tracie Pfrogner

Megan Rose is one of the co-founders of Gal’s Best Friend: a website focusing on the women who love the dogs in their lives. Founded by three best friends and dog moms who now live in different areas around the country, Megan is our local NYC dog mom and puppy guru! Megan is the go-to of all things dog related in New York City; her own three pups Pharell, Rosie, and Rumba follow her around like groupies. Megan has even been featured on The Dodo where she shared her rescue of Rumba while she was on vacation in the Dominican Republic.  We dressed Megan up in a gorgeous pale blue Ralph Lauren dress paired with Robert Clergerie flats, and accessorized her pups in color coordinating Hermes scarves. These three rescue pups have come so far thanks to Megan; from homeless to Hermes!
