animal rescue: leffe

Nicknames: Lef, Little Brew, Lil Bud

Before he was famous: Leffe was found running as a stray in Estill County, Kentucky where he was brought to the county’s high-kill animal control facility. From there he was transported up to Second City Canine Rescue in Medinah Illinois—where he was rescued and got a fresh start in a new home.

Talent Show: Playing “fetch!” and sniffing out anything you try to hide from him.

Favorite Snack: Anything peanut butter-y.

With a Winning Lottery Ticket: He’d buy a lifetime supply of his favorite squeaky ball—and rescue a playmate to fight with over them.

Cat and dog adoption fast facts:

animal rescue: ally

Before she was Famous: Ally was rescued as a puppy by Blackdog All Breed Dog Rescue after she was left at the city pound with two broken back legs. She was rehabilitated, adopted, and now lives in Uptown with her parents and an older sister, Miley, who is also a rescue.

Nicknames: Ally’s nickname is Ally-gator because of her big smile and her propensity for chewing up anything she can get her paws on.

Favorite Snack: A big rawhide bone.

Talent Show: Ally loves running at the Montrose dog beach, playing in the laundry hamper, wrestling with her older sister, and patrolling the neighborhood for squirrels and pigeons. But her best trick is tugging off people’s socks for them—whether they want them on or not!

animal rescue: lola

Just the facts: Lola was rescued with the help of Chicago Pit Stop Rescue and is just 18 months old.

Before she was discovered: Lola was roaming the streets as a stray dog so Animal Control gave her shelter. When they found her, she couldn’t use her front right leg—it’s possible she was hit by a car which shattered her shoulder. She got the medical care she needed, which included the necessary amputation of her leg, and was living with a foster family until we brought her home for the weekend—and that was that! Today, she has a trainer to help with her new transition to family life and is waiting for a cart that will allow her to be more active outside.

Nicknames: I call her Ms. Lolly—my husband often greets her with “rorry ro ro”, our kids refers to her as Snugglebug or Pooh Bear, and her walker affectionately calls her Lollipop because she loves to jump up and give you a kiss.

Favorite Snack: beef marrow bones, organic turkey breast—and nitrate free bacon.

Talent Show: using her puppy dog eyes to make you fall head over heels in love with her, and she has the gift of gab—very good at barking!

Favorite hangouts: snoring the day away on a bed and playing with her rockball in the backyard.

Guilty pleasure: a total belly rub Queen who would be content to lie by your side getting belly rubs until she falls asleep and snores like Grandpa.

humanity

Featuring 150 images sourced from a major international photography exhibition, humanity: a celebration of friendship, family, love & laughter is everything its subtitle claims.

The subjects and settings of each photo are as diverse as the earth—in age, geography and locale. We’re reminded of just how small the world we share truly is, as the underlying theme of humanity connects us all.

redefined: the family

Awhile back, CB2 team members were invited to participate in a photo shoot highlighting their family and family of friends.

In the process we got to know ‘who’s who’ in each other’s family and learned that, much like the range of colors in the family rug, they varied greatly—especially when it came to family pets.

We hope you enjoy the outtakes as much as we did creating them!
