Wrapping up another season for animal lovers in Palm Beach

Wrapping up another season for animal lovers in Palm Beach

When Roberta Weiss and her husband Sol Tezcan first arrived at their new condo in Palm Beach, they were taken aback to find a huge dog sitting in the hallway. They were even more taken aback when they discovered that this dog, which belonged to their neighbors Eames Yates and Pamela Taylor Yates, had freed himself from the flat on his own accord. 

Incredible as it may seem, this dog, who they refer to as William of Worth Avenue, has been known to ride the lift, ring the bell and visit a different floor. And here’s another useful skill he possesses: he can open and close the sliding doors that are located in Yates’ house.

This extraordinary “super mutt” went all the way to Palm Beach on an amazing journey. The Eames took care of him when they discovered him in a garbage can and decided to foster him. They found out very quickly that he only knew Spanish, so when it was decided that William would be staying with them permanently, Eames enrolled in a Spanish class so that he could communicate with his dog!

Not only did the pandemic put a damper on people’s parties, but it also put a damper on gatherings for pets. But organizing birthday celebrations for our canine and feline companions is becoming increasingly popular once again. Due to the pandemic, Celeste Jones was forced to postpone the first birthday party she had planned for her Maltese, Bunny. However, she just celebrated her second birthday with a party, and “I plan to have one for her every year.” In addition, she did not permit COVID to prevent her from obtaining “my furry pet child.” Her trip was canceled due to the pandemic, so she had to drive for 44 hours to pick up what she now refers to as both her “pandemic pup” and her “COVID baby.”

A local author also contributed positively during the pandemic by publishing a book during the time it was in effect. Her golden retriever, chocolate Lab (whom she had rescued from Hurricane Katrina), springer spaniel, and German shepherds protected the novel “Lily Rose” that Deborah Robinson was working on throughout the pandemic. Despite the fact that the epidemic was in full swing outside, “they were like a muse, calming me, and were a lovely distraction whenever I had writer’s block.” The affection I have for both my pets and the natural world is where I get the most inspiration.
In spite of the epidemic, there were still a number of wonderful activities that focused on pets during this season.

At their 50th annual Christmas Ball, the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League raised close to a million dollars for their organization. Wow. And the 21st annual Barry Crown Walk for the Animals was attended by approximately 700 people and their canine companions, resulting in the collection of almost $150,000.

The organization American Humane hosted many events, including a dinner dance titled “Pups4Patriots” at Club Colette, a brunch and book launch at Café Boulud, and a “Pups FOREPatriots” (get it?) Golf Invitational & Luncheon.

The seasonal residents and their pets leave the island around the same time that the car carriers leave for the summer. I hope you have a wonderful summer, regardless of where you end up going.
