Who let the dogs out?! We did, in celebration of our stylish new Dog Beds! We hosted paw-ties at our retail locations, offering free puppy portraits, yummy treats (both canine and human) and a raffle with all sales benefiting our partners at Love Leo Rescue and the Oregon Humane Society. Tails were a’wagging!


Charlie Nunn coaxed big smiles from over 40 pups as they posed for photographs on dog beds at our Venice Beach store. While guests waited for their fur babies’ big moment, they noshed on goods from our local favorite, Bang Bang Brunch, as the dogs chowed down on a barkers dozen from The Dog Bakery.


Rachel Eve Photography put all the pups at ease as she captured their portraits at our evening paw-ty in SoHo. Guests mingled over light bites from Poppy’s and libations from Underwood Wines and Sunday Beer while their four-legged friends mugged for the camera. There were even a few Insta-famous pups at the paw-ty – we see you @rambo4real and @dorothyparkerthedog!  


We had even more to celebrate in Portland, with the store turning one! The backyard was transformed for the big occasion, complete with flowers from Hilary Horvath, tunes by DJ Ben The Inventor, and a caricature artist to capture the dogs! Guests enjoyed a killer charcuterie spread by Local Haven, Bluestar Donuts, beer from Deschutes Brewery – and a lot of framers, care of Party Works.
