greetings from beautiful cape cod, massachusetts!

bean is enjoying an extended vacation at his grandparents for the month of july. his #1 summer accessory is his little orange life vest from outward hound. he’s been living it up kayaking in the bay, romping the dunes, and practicing his stick fishing skills in the atlantic. life is good.

we hope you all are having the best summers ever!

hugs from bean & his mama claire


summer is on the horizon. bean and van’s favorite season. here’s to adventuring into the sun with all your furry friends!

this past weekend was rather glorious. we took advantage and trekked bean and van up to washington park here in portland. one of bean’s favorite things to do is play fetch, with sticks in particular. he could bounce around like a bunny all day if we let him.

such a stud muffin.

and in his own unique way, he’s a muffin too.

here’s to sunshine in the city, get your pups to the park!


warby parker presents warby barker!

the eyewear line warby parker might have had the best april fools prank of the year. they tricked us into thinking that they were going to start selling super hip shades for our furry friends. bean and van could really use some specs!
