We are planning our Second Annual Charity Auction in November. We will showcase 12 one of a kind Dog Beds created by Canadian architects/ tv personalities /artists /graphic, interior, fashion designers to create a custom printed/stitched bed to be auctioned off to go towards the Toronto Humane Society.
Last year we had designers such as Sarah Richardson, The Designer Guys - DGIII, Lynda Reeves and Tommy Smythe participate in our event. We raised $10,000 for the Toronto Humane Society! This far exceeded our initial expectations, which speaks to the caliber of the folks that helped us out and to the enormous generosity of the doggie lovers! We were truly blown away!!

STORE OF THE WEEK
Timmie Doggie Outfitters
Hold onto your leashes. Timmie Doggie Outfitters is bringing its high-design pooch boutique concept to Leslieville, opening a sister store to the west-end Trinity Bellwoods location tonight (Thursday, October 9).
Since 2006, owners Georges Khayat and Paul Ryu have been raising the taste level of Toronto mutts with their collection of pet clothing, accessories, treats and food. Their graphic and advertising design background means these pet products are more chic than cutesy; a fashionable selection of four-leg-friendly coats and sweaters will get your pup through fall and winter.
Modern pet furniture including Holden Design’s bent plywood dog beds and Everyday Studio’s powder-coated pet dishes help an animal household keep up its hoity appearance.
Timmie Doggie Outfitters picks: Wooden wine boxes are converted into raised double feeders, $199 to $250; vintage-inspired rubber squeak toys are perfect for kitschy canines, $9 to $27; Toronto belt maker Brave has created an exclusive line of leather Timmie collars, $45 to $95.
Look for: A grooming spa for both fidos and felines.
