Isaac Mizrahi is bored with dogs in shorts.
"All dogs need to wear long pants as opposed to short," he told PEOPLEPets.com last week at the 14th annual ASPCA Bergh Ball. "I think long is working for dogs."
"Blue and green, seriously, I am feeling are very kind of cool," he added.
Mizrahi, who hosted the event, would know. Not only is he a proud papa to rescue pups of his own, he paraded well-coiffed rescue dogs
down the runway during his Fall 2010 show. But don't expect the dog lover to be bringing any more pooches home with him. "I can't adopt anymore," he said. "I don't think I would be allowed back in my building if I come with another dog."
The designer does what he can. He knows just who among his friends he can call when he sees a dog who needs a home.
"I just think there isn't a better thing to do with your life. Like, if you just don't do anything else with your life, if you give up your career and give up your ambitions and just adopt a dog, you are in good shape."See more celebrities and their pets on PEOPLEPets.com:Kristen Bell's Dogs Are Her Biggest Fans Anna Paquin's Dogs Keep Her Grounded
