Also last Thursday night at the Grand Ballroom of the Plaza, they held the 12th annual Bergh Ball "Rescue Me" for the benefit of the ASPCA. There were several pups attending from the ASPCA on East 92nd Street, including an 8-year-old shih-tzu who is joining this writer's household. Older dogs are often avoided by those adopting, forgetting that an older dog is sweeter with time and a great pleasure to love and be loved.
