Spoiled dogs of New York

Oleg Cassini, Miracle, and Flynn

The fashion designer famous for his work with Jackie Kennedy has made his own Camelot on a Long Island farm that is home to a growing community of dogs and miniature horses. Cassini, who has created a line of elegant fake furs, describes himself as an ardent animal-rights activist, and he adopts pets in need. Miracle, a dwarf miniature Arabian, came to him through a charity event. Flynn, his adopted Shih Tzu, has eleven canine compatriots. "I went into [a] shelter and there were so many sad dogs just sitting there," Cassini says. "So I took them all home."
