Earlier this month we participated in CityDog's annual Puppy Love MuttMixer at the swanky W Hotel in Seattle. We brought some of our beds for all the pups to lounge on and settled ourselves in for a night filled with puppy kisses!

Local to the Northwest and launched in 2005, CityDog Magazine overflows with informative, insightful and often humorous articles on topics from the latest doggie trends to regional activities for dogs and their people. CityDog is the definitive dog lover’s magazine about life and living with dogs in the West -- Seattle, Portland, San Francisco -- and everywhere in between. Make sure to join the CityDog Pack to meet other dog lovers in your neighborhood and for a chance to win a P.L.A.Y. bed of your choice!

This was our first MuttMixer and we can pawsitively say it will NOT be our last! It was so much fun to see all the ear-to-ear grins and wagging tails. CityDog and the W hotel definitely set an amazing stage - there was a great DJ, lots of candle-lit cocktail tables, a blazing fireplace and food and drinks swirling around all night. It was easily the swankiest place to take your dog for a pre-Valentine's Day cocktail hour.

Another amazing part of the night? The photographer! Julie Clegg of Bailey and Banjo was buzzing around all night, capturing all the cute, sassy, and adorable moments. When we saw all the photos afterwards, we have to say - we were way more than impressed.

Being a mother to both two and four-legged children, Julie truly understands what it means to be a dog lover. Recently shifting her photography focus to just pets, Julie works with each of her clients to provide a custom experience. She understands that people have very special connections with their pets and makes it her priority to display that in her photos. To sum it up, she says her goal "is to tell your story as you see it, with beautiful images that capture the true essence of you, your dog, and that relationship you share." What more could you ask from a photographer?

Julie offers lifestyle, studio and what she calls "moody dog" sessions. Being local to the Northwest, it's great that she provides a variety of sessions to take advantage of the winter months as well as a home studio for those rainy-day shots. To see more of her work make sure to visit her website at Also check out her Facebook page and follow her on Twitter!

Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better night. Check out CityDog's website or Facebook page to see the rest of the photos. Thanks to CityDog and the W for a fabulous evening - we'll definitely be back again!
