What is it like to experience the world like your pets?

Is it possible to ‘blur the species barrier’? That’s what Being A Beast attempts to find out.  For weeks at a time, veterinarian/lawyer/naturalist Charles Foster lived as a badger, an otter, a fox…in their habitat, approximating their movements & habits (dumpster diving in London, eating earthworms…).  This is radical nature-writing, and it’s witty, deep and humble.

RED Saturday Dec. 12/12 for Animals in Need

Black Friday is a kind of empty-feeling holiday for us.  We get the idea as retailers, but our inspiration to become a business was out of a desire to have an impact on animals & our communities.  So this year, as a response, we are throwing a RED Saturday on Dec. 12, when 20% of all […]

Merry Madness: Portland & Now Boston

Portland’s been lubricating the local small business Christmas shopping experience for 13 years with Merry Madness, the one-night-a-year mass shopping and sipping party that keeps the shops open & serving tastes of wine or cocoa till 10pm.  It’s a great idea that for some indiscernible reason the Newbury Street League has passed on, but it’s a natural […]

Dogfriendly Neighbors: Marimekko on Newbury Street

Many of customers bring their dog to the store to pick out his/her own treats and toys and beds, and we of course love that.  I often wonder though if our customers know how dog friendly our neighborhood is.  You can actually bring your dog into most stores in Back Bay, and chances are, you’ll […]

Zip put on his new shirt, grabbed a Companion Air flight and squeezed himself between two Corgis to wish one special dog lover a happy Diamond Jubilee.  Can you tell us Where in the World is Zip? The first person to email us with the right answer gets a bag of Bocce’s Bakery Fish & Chips Dog […]
