Dogs & bikinis are two of my most favorite things about summer. I love Fall & seasons in general but this year I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to the warm rays & salty paws. These look book images are brought to you by the sizzlin bikini brand, Mandalyn. They’re all about babes, booties, & apparently pups too! What’s more to love?! Hope you & your doggies have something amazing planned for this last weekend of summer! We’re off to the mountains to camp! Woof!

Did you know wiener dogs have a sixth sense for hunting for amazing vintage dresses?! Who would have thought but these little guys have a snout for more than just badgers & moles! Bean & I spotted this tropical number just as we were walking out of the door at Local Colour, one of our favorite thrift shops on Cape Cod located in Orleans. It’s in perfect shape, has a great fit, & was only $12! There are tons of other secret thrifting spots on the Cape but you’ll have to ask Bean about those ; ) We’re back in Portland now after a 6 week adventure on the East Coast including treks to Vermont, Martha’s Vineyard & New York. Next up is a massive business trip to Las Vegas. We leave Sunday! Hot Dog!

Good afternoon from Wellfleet, Massachusetts! We’ve been posted up in this salty land on Cape Cod for the past 3 weeks and counting & at the moment can’t imagine leaving the magic behind. Cape Cod is a pretty sensational environment for hounds and hound loving humans surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world in my opinion. Bean & Van love it here! One of our goals at the moment is to be able to spend at least 6 months out of the year here & 6 months in Portland. This extended trip has given us a taste of what it’s like to operate our little business on the go without a real office space & all the technology we’re used to. It’s been so fun & to us what this adventure is all about! Bowwow!

Summer is in full swing puppies! At last I am finding a moment to sit down & share with you our latest lookbook for Bean Goods that launched last week for the 4th of July. If you know me you’re probably aware that this is my all time favorite holiday so directing this shoot was pretty dreamy for me! We found the perfect location via Airbnb equipped with an inground pool & epic backyard. The pad already had a dash of hillbilly with it’s worn yellow lawn chairs & we turned up the freedom vibes with red, white, & blue, Budweiser & of course wiener dogs. We had an all-star team & couldn’t be happier with the finals from the shoot. Boone Rodriguez, our photographer, shot with 6 different cameras some digital, some film so we have tons of outtakes that I plan on sharing later.  I’m writing to you now from Cape Cod where Bean & Van are throughly enjoying themselves with daily beach romps & salty coats. Hope summer’s off to a glorious start for all of you! Cheers doggies!
