One can barely imagine that after driving through the heat and traffic that you could come upon a place as glorious as Edwina von Gal's home aka The PRFCT place. What the hell does that mean a PRFCT place? Thank God Edwina was there to shed some light on this GREEN topic! I consider myself pretty smart ( although I did walk into a puppy store to buy my gays and THAT changed my life furever...#adoptdontshop now tatooed on my body ) but I needed to be told about her mission and why its so important!

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/ and Mindy Montney of Dog & Cowe 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.

What does Jackie O', Molly Ringwald and your dog have in common? They all look pretty in pink! This fabulous color looks radiant on both pet and owner. Check out these pink products for your pooch from K9 Couture Co, Penn & Pooch, and Yark. While Reppeto and Dior serves up fashion for you in our favorite shades of pink!

"Even while I was enjoying a 20-odd year stint as a travel writer, features journalist and magazine editor, I was always looking around for a valid reason to hang out with dogs all day. In 2012, I started indulging my hankering to paint, and I found that as I progressed, my subject matter became more and more canine – in a wry, not-too-serious way. I was hooked on the many expressions of every pooch I came across. Dog lovers responded by smiling, and Hangdog was born. It’s now an online shop selling fine art prints, stationery and textiles with an ironic, light hearted, doggish bent."  - Megan Anderson

When Pierre Rougier and Sylvie Picquet-Damesme say “sit,” it’s not just their pups who listen.  The joint force behind PR Consulting, the fashion industry’s most elite PR firm, it’s Rougier and Picquet-Damesme who determine the seating for Dries Van Noten, Christian Dior, Zero + Maria Cornejo and Versace.  PR consulting chooses the seats for buyers and editors, entertainers and their entourages; they herd fashion’s cats—including the kings of the jungle.  And not just at the shows— when you read about a party at the Chateau Marmont, or a Louis Vuitton dinner, it’s PR Consulting who’s behind it, beginning with the guest list.

City Dog Living is the ongoing story of a modern city dog and his family on their pursuit to bring design, fashion, travel and leisure together with man's best friend. I found the site on Instagram and had to reach out to ask founder, Allan Glanfield, to do a roundup for Mrs. Sizzle.   "I only have a few rules when it comes to personal style and I use the same principals with Frankie my dog: Keep it simple. We only have so much energy dedicated to decision making. Invest in quality. It will save you time and money in the long run. Nothing lasts forever. If you find something that works... Buy a bunch of it."  Great advice from man and his best friend.

“Home, home on the range, where this English Lab named Bosco plays.  Where seldom is heard a discouraging word and skies are not cloudy all day.” 

Ok, it is winter so there are some clouds…but you know what I mean. In fact, winter is my favorite season at Westwind Orchard! On a typical day as Head Farm Dog, I wake up early and take care of important business, like tapping the maple trees for syrup with Pop and visiting my friends at the chicken coop and beehives. Most humans are afraid of bees, but Dad has taught me to sit very still as he tends to them.  I love when they buzz around my head, tickling my nose, smelling all sweet.
