Happy Birthday Abbi

If you missed Abbi’s birthday party on Saturday, you were not alone. But NewsWorks was there to celebrate Abbi’s 10 birthday. Abbi is a black and white Portuguese Water Dog and her mom is a bit of a drama queen.

Her mom is actress J.J. Van Name, who put up a birthday invitation open to everyone on a bulletin board at Carpenters Woods.

Van Name is playing Maria in the current production of Twelfth Night at The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre.
