For years we have been visiting design firms and one of the first introductions upon arriving is the company dog.  Yes, the cutest member of the team usually greets us first!  After getting to know the adorable pup while we are there, we usually run back to our office and share pictures with the rest of our DM family.

We have always talked about how interior designers love their dogs and apparently we aren’t the only ones.  Town and Country Magazine put together a slideshow on famous designers and their dogs. One of our clients and owner of six rescue dogs, Bunny Williams, opens up about her fondness for her four-legged furry friends to the Wall Street Journal.

This summer we wanted to do something fun for our designers and have a place where all of these fabulous dogs could be on display.  So we started our Dogs of DM Contest on July 4th and had it run until Labor Day.  We put together some fun prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place; first place received a free hour of DM online training, second place received a monogrammed dog leash and collar and 3rd place received a doggie gift bucket full of dog toys and treats.

It is with great pride that I announce our first Dogs of DM Contest Winners…

Thank you to all of our designers for participating in our contest and sharing your wonderful animals with us.  It was great to walk in on Monday mornings and see those smiling new dog photos entered in the contest.  Thank you also to all of the voters out there that helped make the contest an exciting summer event.

Please visit our Dogs of DM page to see all of these amazing dogs!  There are so many cuties!
