The dogs did not make a peep. Not a single woof. That said, in their silence the dogs still managed to steal the show.

On Thursday night, McArdle’s Florist & Garden Center, offered up their spacious building on Arch Street for a fundraiser for Adopt-A-Dog. Most of the dogs in attendance were originally rescues from Adopt-A-Dog, a Greenwich based non profit with a shelter and sanctuary just over the state line in Armonk, NY.

While patrons sipped spirits from Horseneck Wines & Liquors of Greenwich and savored mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres provided byFairway Market, the dogs didn’t so much as beg for a morsel.
