The moment we first set our eyes on Momo, we knew we were in trouble. A squirmy little ball of fur, she had a perfect round body and a cinnamon-bun tail. From the minute we took her home, off she went - snorting, sniffing and exploring her way through her new environment – all while making those cute pug noises. Boy, were we in trouble. The little thing tugged at our heartstrings and brought out a side of us we never even knew existed. Our weekdays were soon filled with mini-chases around the living room and our weekends consumed with long walks. We began mingling with other dog owners in the Bay Area and found a community filled with people just like us; people whose dogs weren’t just pets, but truly members of the family.
Momo managed to change not only our day to day lives, but also our perspective. Our mornings were never the same again. It always brought a smile to our faces when we’d wake up to her little grunts and snores, with her warm fuzzy body curled up next to us. Even though we loved sharing our bed with Momo, we wanted to give her a one of her own. We spent weeks hunting for the perfect bed but soon found that many were just not up to snuff.
That’s when we realized we could do better.
We decided to start from scratch and in the process we developed a new way of looking at things. We made it our goal to create comfortable beds without sacrificing style. We partnered with local artists in San Francisco and worked closely with them to create designs not just for dogs but for the dog lovers as well. At the same time, we examined countless types of materials and fabrics to ensure that our dog beds aren’t just pleasing to the eye, but durable and good for Mother Nature as well.
Looking back, it’s amazing to think that the day we introduced Momo into our lives was the beginning of a new chapter for us. Our love for her inspired us to create P.L.A.Y.
At P.L.A.Y. we don’t just make ordinary dog beds, we make beds for beloved four- legged family members, and we hope that’s something you feel when your dog goes to sleep every night.
