I’ll post more photos and video as the day goes on. Make sure to keep everyone safe tonight and have a lot of fun! We would love to see your photos!

Family Photos!

Hello everyone! This summer has been a good one. Filled with love, laughter, and new adventures. We have been struggling with the heat and humidity here in North Carolina but because of that, I enjoy these stormy days all the more. Last week we had some professional family photos taken by the fabulous husband and wife team at Snow Dog Studios. Melissa & David showed us to a beautiful park in a gorgeous neighbor and took some truly amazing photos. Of course, Basil was the star of the show. When we got the photos back, very quickly I might add, all I wanted to order was every photo of Basil. As if I don’t have enough alright… geez!

Thanks again to Melissa & David for your time and skills! He had such a great time at the shoot and I think the photos show that.
If you are in the North Carolina area and need family, pet, wedding, engagement, or any other type of pictures make sure to contact Snow Dog Studios. You will not be sorry!

Hope everyones Monday is off to a good start! Just remember only 5 more days until the weekend! Xoxo

Happiness is a rainy summer day in Asheville!

Its been a little stormy around these parts the last couple of days. We woke up Saturday morning and decided to embrace the cooler temperatures and “light” rain and head up into the smokey mountains for the day. We really didn’t have a plan but found ourselves in our favorite North Carolina city, Asheville. What we thought was just going to be a short stop for lunch and to pop are heads (and paws) into The Three Dog Bakery turned into a full day of shopping, eating, drinking, and socializing. Basil, like aways, had a lot of fun and made more than a few new friends.
Special thanks to Posana Cafe, The Southern, and Wicked Weed for giving us shelter from the rain and being beyond welcoming of Basil and his ever so slight wet dog smell!

The ever growing bow tie collection continues…

Happy Monday all! Hope everyone is surviving the heat that has been hitting the majority of the US. We have been trying to stay cool and relax in the comfort of our air conditioned home. This weekend we received Basil’s new collar and bow tie set from UsagiTeam. They are a great little pet supply company out of San Francisco that makes the cutest collars, bow ties, and matching leashes. Make sure to find and like them on Facebook and give them a follow over on the Twitter. Because this is a good look! Basil loves UsagiTeam! Basil loves UsagiTeam!Every American gentleman (or hipster worth their salt) needs at least one bow tie! Don’t you want to look this good?!

Throwback Thursday – I woke up this way!

Every Gentleman needs a bow tie!

Hello Basil friends! Happy July 1st! Happy Canada day for all our friends north of the boarder!

LeLePetsSo, almost every day we get stopped on the street by people telling us how cute Basil looks in one of his many bow ties, (He really does!) and a lot of people ask where we get them. To be honest, we have really just stumbled upon each and every one of them. Three Dog Bakery has a good selection, any local pet store, and of course Etsy. Today LeLePets is offering a special on UsagiTeam collars, bow ties, and leashes. I went ahead a
nd ordered Basil a new collar, bow tie combo. We can’t wait to get it and show it off! Head over to LeLePets now (or very soon because the sale ends on July 4th) to get your very own bow tie. Your dog can look this cute too! Basil loves bow ties!
