Their people go out so often, turning on the lights and the music or TV to keep their pooches company. So you can bet that the canine contingent is looking forward to Dog’s Night Out. The three young co-chairs are Molly Klauber, Eric Massey and Michael Krempel — all new to the event. They are ramping up this perennial favorite with new content, including parallel menus for people (by Michael’s On East) and pets (by Holistic Pets, Woof Gang Bakery and Max’s Dog Bakery), a Chinese auction of dog-related products and services and a Saks Fifth Avenue fashion show coordinated by Pat Wiewel. Some models will walk with their own doggies: Shelly Binion and Dixie (Chihuahua); Molly Klauber and Bentley (Brazilian Mastiff); and Adam Schiffman and Raja (Shiba Inu). Showing off adoptable pooches: Mirta Klauber, Alicia Stevens, Bonnie Lancaster, Lisa Vignola, Pam Taylor, Jennie Famiglio, Veronica Pastore, Dawn Horowitz, Sherryl Jenkins and Travis Garner.
