Fashion Week starts today, and all of New York City is gearing up for what promises to be a marathon of shows and parties. So how do the designers stay sane in all this chaos?

And the rewards are handsome: maids, limos, and passports with stamps from around the world.
We've rounded up seven of our favorite fashionista pets. For more glimpses into the lives of designers and their dogs, check out this fantastic gallery of archival photos from W.
