A DIY Pet Bed for Woof

Our block held a huge multi-family yard sale a few weekends ago, and besides purging our little hearts out and having an all around blast with our neighbors (day drinking, pizza and sunshine? Yes, please!), we had the chance to meet familiar faces from around the ‘hood. Think: Oh, you’re the mom of the brindle Pittie! Or, Ah,KEEP READING >


Loving: Portland

We first met Portlanders Julie and Brian last summer when we stayed at le Hotel Chuckleberry (their rescued Pittie) during our Northwest adventure.

We crave his food (it’s the world’s greatest, FYI), so it’s only a bummer that he doesn’t live in Chicago with us – you know, to cook us dinner every night. Luckily, he’s sharing some of his top tips (using localKEEP READING >
