We've had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing dog dads, and we just wanted to wish you all a very happy Father's Day! A special thank you to all the dads (and moms) who have supported Dogs of MSP in one way or another. Having the support of our community and people who stand behind our mission means everything. We get the chills just thinking about it! Please know we always love seeing pics of our swag, so be sure to share photos with us in our Facebook group or by using #dogsofmsp on Instagram. Cheers to all the dads out there!
We partnered with KME Photography to offer Mother's Day Mini Sessions, and the results warm our hearts and put a big derpy smile on our face. Kirsten of KME has an amazing talent for capturing the precious bond between mom and dog(s). Happy Mother's Day to all the #dogmoms out there! May your day be filled with hairy hugs and slobbery kisses!
Check out the amazing video that Studio Twelve:52 pulled together for us from our February Meet Up on Feb. 11th, 2017! Seeing all the dogs and people we know documented like this gives us goosebumps! Thanks to everyone who came out and made the day special for us.
Kylie Bearse from WCCO stopped by Inbound Brewco to chat with us about our upcoming holiday market on December 17th, 2017. As you can see, Maple and Butterscotch were thrilled about their first TV appearance.
Cheers to Target for coming out with the matching flannel pajamas this year! As you can see, we were huge fans!
We will be hosting an online Halloween Costume Contest! At 8 pm tonight (10/22), stay tuned to our Facebook group, as we will be opening up submissions for our Costume Contest. You can drop your pet's photo in the comments to be entered in the contest. If you have more than one dog in the photo, that's fine, but please only one submission per person/dog family.
On the morning of 10/23, we will upload submissions to an album on the Dogs of MS public Facebook page, where voting will take place from 10/23-10/26. At the end of 10/26, we will take the top 10 finalists and make a NEW album, and the top two costumes with the most likes will be selected as winners from that album. Voting for the top 10 finalists will take place from 10/27-10/30 and winners will be announced the morning on 10/31!
Please note that we will only take the first 200 photo entries to be considered for the contest, so make sure you're ready tonight at 8!

Our good friend Emily has been hard at work making these gorgeous double-sided Dogs of MSP bandanas. Satisfied customers have shared that once their dogs have their bandana on, they don't want to take them off (no joke)!
We LOVE seeing your pups wearing the bandanas around town, and it puts a smile on our faces to see photos of them on their latest adventures. Please be sure to share your photos with us by using #dogsofmsp and by sharing photos in our Facebook group. Thank you for the support, and if you need a bandana, you can pick one up at our next meet up at Hewing Hotel on August 6th (they are currently only available at our events)!
It's Shark Week and dogs from the land of 10,000 lakes are channeling their inner shark!
Good news for us is that you're not drinking alone if your dog is with you! These Minneapolis taprooms allow dogs to enjoy a beer with you inside and outside.

On February 4th, Union Depot in St. Paul opened its doors to doggies near and far. Maple strapped on the GoPro and had so much fun running into her friends at the event (side note: leash training in progress).
Maple was especially excited to see her friend Dory, who won Doggie Depot Queen in honor of Save-a-Bull Rescue, and her pals from Finley's Barkery. If you haven't heard of Finley's, be sure to check out their good work. They employ adults with autism and special needs to make all-natural, handcrafted dog treats, and they are always a big hit with the pups (even the picky ones)!
