Dogs Who Work - Labor Day

image

The dog days of summer are winding down (gasp!) and Labor Day is right around the corner. Many people are firing up the grill and counting down until the well deserved time off from work that comes with the holiday. Labor Day typically recognizes working men and women, but we can’t forget to also celebrate our four legged friends that help us get the job done! There are so many ways that our furry friends assist us. From service dogs that assist people with disabilities, to K9 Units that aid police- and every other working dog in between!

So this labor day weekend go ahead and treat a special woof in your life-whether they have their own version of a 9 to 5 or not. Because their main job is putting a smile on your face, and they do it happily without ever asking for days off.

Consider becoming a volunteer, or donate to help fund the cost of training or sponsorship of an assistance dog.

We’re thrilled to announce that we have been picked as finalists for the 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Awards!

 From the Martha Stewart website, the aim of the American Made movement is to “spotlight the maker, support the local, and celebrate the handmade. The program is made up of people and communities that have turned their passion for quality craftsmanship and well-designed goods into a way of life.” 

We truly love what we do, and are honored to be considered for such an enormous award.

Tell a friend to tell a friend to vote for LoveThyBeast! Voting begins Sept. 15th through Oct.13 and we need your help to let the world know what LoveThyBeast is made of.

Things We ♥

We’re loving Italian fashion house Trussardi’s take on menswear in their S/S 2014 campaign. The campaign, shot by William Wegman, features Greyhounds that are a lot more stylish than most humans.

LoveThyBeast’s resident pooch, Orzo was so inspired by the photos that he decided to put his own spin on the campaign. Can you say America’s Next Top Dog Model?

The pack is back!

The dog days of summer may be winding down, but the LoveThyBeast team is still working round the clock!

We had a great time this past week sharing all of our new products with our pawesome fellow exhibitors, and attendees of Superzoo 2014. We loved chatting with you all, and being able to introduce our products to you face-to-face. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth, and said hello! We spotted some of our old friends from the crew at Pussy and Pooch, and got some sweet hugs from our new friends at Metro Pet Market Canada.

We are also very excited to introduce our 2014/2015 catalogue. Follow the link below to feel inspired by our colorways and designs, and see some adorable furry faces.
