animal rescue: alley

Nicknames: Alleyoopers, Ganoopie, Ganoopers, Little Monkey.
Favorite snack: Anything and everything—especially if it’s outside—loves veggies.
Favorite toy:  Our other dog Ed, and the first toy in her new home—a small plastic dog with an enormous head… that she’s half-chewed off.
Talent Show: She doesn’t have ANY!  Sits a little crooked when asked about 10 times.
How she was ‘discovered’: On July 3rd we drove into our alley and this little dog was looking lost—and scared of the fireworks—but adorable. We posted pictures, walked door-to-door, but no one claimed her. Our other two dogs adapted to her immediately—well almost—and my husband swears I pulled the signs down! But she’s part of our family now and there couldn’t be a happier goofier dog.

animal rescue: coney

In the newest CB2 Spring catalog, we got help from some pretty adorable models—only rescued animals were on-set to help bring awareness to animal shelters and pet adoption.

Coney—a 10+ corgi—comes from St. Louis, where an email from a co-worker was sent in search of a new home for her. Nicknames: C-dog, Cone-star, Cone-dog… but her name is Coney—named after the infamous Detroit hot dog.
Likes: Being anywhere we are… napping in the backyard… herding her ‘peeps’ by bumping our heels/calves with her nose… snuggling her head in our laps.
‘Pet’ peeves: Bad singing, stairs, and people who don’t stop to pet her—she wants to meet everyone!
Favorite toy: Tug-of-war rope.
Favorite napping spot: It’s a tie between her fleece-lined bed where she rests her chin on its walls, or the patio.
Guilty pleasure: Natural Balance small breed treats.
Talent Show: A ridiculously cute begging pose. She sits straight up and flat on her tail-less bottom—it kills us every time.
