Meet Lola, a brown rescue mystery mutt with cute floppy ears and big white paws. Lola’s mom is Celia Ellenberg, Beauty Director at VOGUE.
Lola has mastered the art of aging gracefully. Everyone thinks she is a puppy, but she’s actually 10 years old— and just happens to look great for her age. Celia first met Lola when she fostered her for a weekend back in 2007 when she lived in a 6th floor walkup up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The rescue agency never picked Lola up on Monday. Or returned Celia's calls. Or ever showed up again. Celia decided to take Lola on a soul–searching drive across the country to live in a cabin in British Columbia together that Winter, and the two have been best friends ever since.
Lola's favorite places to hang out include Celia's couch in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn, and running around the lake on her property upstate in Roscoe, NY. She likes to chase the geese and is always on the lookout for deer and the occasional bear. Lola's also a total lover and actually spoons at night, which is painfully adorable.
Although most dogs will eat anything and everything without a moment’s hesitation, Lola is an extremely a picky eater and is not motivated by food. But she does have a sweet tooth and loves fruit! Mangoes, specifically, which Celia learned when Lola managed to take a whole one off her kitchen table. And eat the entire thing. In Celia's bed.
