Il Bagato holding a fundraiser tonight for fallen ad star Phoebe

As you can see from the flyer, there's a fundraiser tonight for Phoebe at Il Bagato. Phoebe was a full-breed Papillion owned by Helen O'Neill, director of art production at ad agency Deutsch N.Y. According to an article in the trade publication Creativity, Phoebe starred in ads for Nissan and Milwaukee's Best, among others.

Phoebe died last Thursday "after eating something poisonous on the streets of the East Village," per an email from Il Bagato.

OMG. Could someone follow up with this? As a dog owner, I feel like there needs to be more information. So sorry about Helen's loss. What a tragedy.

What a beautiful pup she was. I'm so sorry for this terrible situation. Rest in peace, little Phoebe.
