February 13, 2012

New York Metropolitan Opera star and animal lover Janet Hopkins will join Grand Champion Sweetbriar’s Ecco D’Oro (Ecco) in New York for a musical good luck send off as he competes in the 2012 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. At 1 pm on today at the Hotel Pennsylvania in Midtown Manhattan, Hopkins will serenade opera loving Ecco with a favorite personalized Italian aria, “O Mio Babbino Cane.”

The partnership between Ecco and Hopkins comes as a result of Ecco’s work as Everyday Opera magazine’s wine critic. How fun is that?

Ecco has developed an internet following of dog fans who are taken with his mischievous nature and frequent online musings.

Lilly and I wish Ecco the very best at Wesminster and thank him and all his fans for the “pack attack” of love they showed us online, last week while Lilly was hospitalized with meningoencephalomyelitis.
