The Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter's fashion show held Sunday afternoon featured models not yet booked for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. The models were each known by one name - not unlike Tyra, Gisele and Heidi. However, Panda, Tia and Leda strutted down the runway and licked the people in the front row. The model dogs donned scarves and outfits to join the human models displaying fashions available in the shelter's thrift shop. “We have a lot of nice stuff here, and it's a way for our volunteers to show it off,” Jennifer Vanderau said, adding that many of the clothes are familiar brands with tags still attached.
