This summer, my friends and I decided that a trip to the Noto Valley in Sicily was just what we needed to celebrate the 40th birthday of one of the members of our quartet. After weeks of research, we agreed a renovated farmhouse overlooking the 300BC town of Scicli would do us just fine.
This week we visit the apartment of Rachel Antonoff the super duper inspired fashion designer and cutie extraordinaire. Although Mrs. Sizzle got lost in the rain she was relieved to get to the cozy apartment with the barking dog, none other than Lafitte Antonoff. Amy Lombard was on hand to photograph and there to help us look stylish was the brilliant DOG & CO.! I had to ask Rachel many questions about this handsome scruffy dude.
Take me out to the ball game
Take me out with the crowd
Buy me some treats and some raw hide chews
It's a long game so I might take a snooze
And it's RUFF RUFF RUFF
For the home team
If they don't win it's a shame
For it's one,
Three paws you're out
At the old ball game!
There is nothing I love more than friends reaching out to me with their rescue stories. Not only does it give me great joy, but it is the most aspirational way to reconnect with old friends and colleagues and share about our commonality - LOVE FOR ANIMALS. SO, it was with great pleasure that I heard from friend and photographer Melanie Acevedo who wanted to share her pics and story about her dogs and their role in the home.
Vincent Flouret, A Parisian fashion photographer, went to Los Angeles for a bit of warm air and wonder. What he found were the engaging faces of many dogs looking for homes and decided to spend time helping them with a better chance of finding homes through his photography.
This one...Ok she may be small but I think she is larger than life! Chic, quirky, positive are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Ella Bean the Dog but go ahead and see for yourself. Mrs. Sizzle grilled her the other week!
As with many modern-day romances, my husband and I first met Merle online. We were scrolling through Petfinder, and came across a photo of a dumpling-shaped, impossibly adorable puppy named Limo. A few emails later, we learned Limo was unavailable, but that he had a brother named Charlos.
"Our beloved English Cocker Sunny brought joy to our family for 8 short years. A sweet and kind animal that loved to play fetch, he was never far from his ball. He spent a lot of time on set with me and he loved the camera, always trying to get in the picture. Sunny was a fiercely loyal friend that would never stray from my side. Sunny passed away in 2011."
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.
It was the most gorgeous celebration for National Puppy at the Highline Hotel yesterday! Tuna Melts My Heart, Toast Meets World and Friends of Finn sat on propped personalized pillows from WAGGO to greet the crowds! Photos were had, rescue dogs looked for new owners, and people shopped, all in honor of Amanda Hearst's Friends of Finn organization which helps the Humane Society and raises awareness about puppy mills.

It was hot and we had a job to do yesterday. The ASPCA had asked if we could photograph some of their current dogs up for adoption. These beauties are all available right now and need your help. Imagine how good it will feel to see a tail wagging. There is nothing more fashionable than a chic new dog especially in Adopt October. To inquire about adoption call: 212-876-7700 extension 4120 or visit the shelter at 424 East 92nd Street in NYC.

Dear Jeff Koons,
I think I would make a terrific addition to your amazing sculptures.
Love, Maggie, a reservation rescue now devoted art patron.
Richard Phibbs is at it again! He and the Humane Society of New York, under the brilliant direction of Sandra DeFeo, worked tirelessly with a team of people to get these beauties photographed so they might have a better chance of being adopted. All were photographed at the Humane Society on September 10th, and each and every one of them is looking for a forever home. If you are interested in any of these pets please email Sandra.
