As you may have seen by now, we had a very special cameo by one of our beloved home office pups in the September catalog – Toby! I caught up with Toby the other day to ask him about his experience shooting his first Free People catalog :)
Were you nervous about being a part of our September catalog shoot? I was a little nervous, but once we started shooting, I relaxed.
What did you do to prepare for the shoot? Well, I’m a natural so I didn’t do much. I had a bath and made sure my paws were extra clean.
What did you think of Bambi, the model you posed with? She was great! I think we complimented each other well. At first, she was a bit scared of me, but after she realized I was a gentle giant, she had fun.
What was your favorite part of the shoot? Being showered with cookies and attention from all the ladies :)
Do you get stopped on the street now that you’re a famous catalog model? Not so much…
Will you be doing any more modeling in the future? I hope to. I am available :)
What’s your favorite thing about Fall? Boots and the cooler weather!
Toby wasn’t the only pup on set at the September shoot! He had a bud to hang out with – Ace!
Ace lives on the farm in New Tripoli where our catalog was shot. He lost his leg when he was hit by a car but he is doing just fine now! He had a blast during the shoot and LOVED all the attention from the ladies :) He is one happy dog!
This dog cracks me up! She belongs to our creative design assistant and she is probably the tiniest dog I’ve ever seen – pictures really don’t do it justice. She’s a cutie and she loves to breakdance! Check it out :)
No, there is not something wrong with my camera…that is pink string hanging in our lobby as part of a little installation we are doing! I love the concept:
DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU DO
Each employee will attach an item to one of the strings that represents what they love most about their job or what motivates them most about their job. We’ve just started attaching our objects, it’s so fun to see what people choose!
The object I hung was thank you card from one of our blog readers – every once in a while I get a card or package in the mail and it always makes my day to hear that something I wrote on the blog inspired you or made you feel good. So thank you guys!
And now I have to introduce you to this little cutie pie, Carter – he belongs to a fp girl’s roommate and I’m smitten with him! I love how puppies tire themselves out and crash, they’re so cute when they’re sleepy :)
It’s always such a treat to see the pups of Home Office that the girls of Free People Brooklyn thought we’d introduce some of our local customers! All dogs are welcomed with shakes, treats, water, and love :)
Lalo! (He’s recovering quite nicely)
Waffle loved our mannequin outfit so much he collapsed in front of it :)
Huahua (as in Chihuahua) and mom!
Lemon (with Huahua in background – they’re best friends!)
Last but not least, Chewy!
so cute! i love all their names…especially waffle :) thanks for sharing ladies!
