The best part about being well-known as a crazy dog lady is receiving emails from friends about gorgeous rescue animals - and their even hotter owners! Photographer Gillian Laub sent me a pic of this amazing guy with his very handsome dog, and I absolutely had to meet them - I mean...barefoot and biking? This story happens to be one of my favorites…
'Slater is an elderly, regal dachshund who has been in my family for as long as I can remember. Some friends of mine recently curated an art show of only dog-related work, and Slater and I decided to make this film.'
"It started with my fascination for large breeds a few years back, especially the Irish Wolfhound. I had some idea of an exhibition at the time but it did not come to pass. So I started @dogsbestman on instagram, and it proved to be quite popular, only problem was that I had run out of dog pictures after a few weeks.
I have known this man for decades - not close like “besties” but rather kindred spirits of sorts. I always knew Isaac was a dog person, but when I learned that the two dogs he owns and loves were rescues, I was relentless. I mean RELENTLESS. So here we go, nothing more to say. Watch the brilliant video directed by William Abranowicz and be delighted by the man who so often delights with humor and his wit. Ladies and Gents, Isaac Mizrahi.
I’m not certain there’s enough space on this site to pine over my deep love of Maine. I spent most of my summer’s as a kid on an island in Penobscot Bay and subsequently most of my summer’s as an adult dreaming about one day sharing Maine with a family of my own but until that day comes, why not bring a dog or two!
"I get asked this question a lot (especially on Instagram), so I thought it was time I formally addressed the whole how do you keep white sheets white with dogs sleeping in your bed – question. I’ll share my secret, though you may already know it." Nicole Lee of WILDLANDIA
My dear friend David Carriere, long time book publicist and author, was intuitive enough to introduce me to a most dynamic creative pack, and one that I would quickly come to revere - and when I say revere, well, I really mean worship. W. Bruce Cameron is the author of a multitude of bestselling books, and the one that rocked me most recently was, A Dog's Purpose, which will come to life on the silver screen in the near future with Lasse Hallstrom directing!
Summer has hit hard and the Sizzle Sisters must dress accordingly! When the wind picks up in Bellport NY, they are more inclined to go with sleeves like seen here in Mr. Soft Top to keep those limbs warm and stay chic at the same time.
I knew Sophie Gamand was doing a big shoot last summer so it is with great pride that I share with you her latest story from my favorite, LOVE MAGAZINE. She has not only applied her fab photographic skills but does what she is known best for - photographing beautiful dogs that are so badly in need of a home. She has already appeared on Sizzle with her pit bull series, one that we prepared together in Brookhaven, NY.
If you had told me a year and a half ago, while sitting in my gorgeous office at the Conde Nast building, that I would attend something called SuperZoo during the period to come, I think I would have looked at you like you had three heads. So as all things do with time, the sense of that statement seems to have faded away, and I am a proud Mrs. Sizzle to say that at this year's SuperZoo (one of the most popular trade shows in North America for the pet industry), I had a BLAST!
DOG & CO. hit the road this summer with V.P. of Quality Control/Cheif Product Tester, Cheeky the Dog, to explore the South. Their stop in Clarksdale, Mississippi took to us to the home of the blues, where she sported all-American looks from some of our favorite designers on location at the incredible Shack Up Inn. Mrs. Sizzle is in awe of the result and had to share this summertime story!
After the first stressful 20 min, during which we anticipate the familiar noise emanating from the back, we settle in…even though Zara will continue to puke every few hours, Zen will get bored and start to chew on the seats, one of the two will start to smell really, really bad, and both will force us to pull over what seems like every 5 minutes for a bathroom break. If you can’t already tell, our road trip is essentially a dog and owner’s nightmare.
A few weeks ago we stopped by the fabulously hectic office of PR guru Nadine Johnson to get the scoop on dog mascot Lupo (@lupojohnson). He's stolen every heart in the office, so along with photographer Kimberly M. Wang/Eardog.com and Mindy Montney of Dog & Co, we dug further to see what made this dog tick!
What's your favorite thing to do at the office?
I enjoy teasing my older sister Milou and supervising all the employees from my little throne at the top of the stairs. I also steal their lunches when they are not looking, but need to watch out as beach season is here and I’ve gotten a bit round around the waist.
In the city that never sleeps, dog owners find it difficult to stay at a luxury hotel that allows pups to rest their heads. Since its opening last August, the Park Hyatt NYC has become a haven for just that. Just a short two block walk from Central Park, the Park Hyatt combines the chic atmosphere of a city hotel with the added comfort of bringing your furry friend. In addition to having the best amenities for pooches, The Park Hyatt NY donates 100% of the overnight dog fee to Friends of Finn and The Humane Society of the United States.
Sugar Baby is a Redtick Coonhound WHO NEEDS YOU! She's a very sweet girl but she can be a bit timid as loud noises and quick movements do startle her. A quiet home would be best. Sugar's a hero because being in a shelter is a confusing situation for any dog, but she's strong and knows that she willl find her furrever home soon.
What's your favorite neighborhood?
Is the park a neighborhood? If so, then any park where I can play fetch is my favorite neighborhood. But I also like the Lower East Side and Chelsea, I have a lot of friends there at the galleries mom takes me to!
I can't stop watching this hilarious play between man and beast. As Jeff puts it, “This film was entirely the dog’s idea. I just supplied the rubber pork chop and the camera. SID and I shared a summer house on Shelter Island, he belonged to famed graphic designer Paul Sahr. Sid was a foot long and in his prime had more energy than a sack of bedsprings and a stick of dynamite.
One of the toughest things about being a dog is watching your owners head out on a great relaxing vacation knowing that your future does not include the trip. In the best case of scenarios, you are shipped off to have a sleepover with some of your puppy pals, but an even better idea would be to bring us along.
