THE PET SET

Behind every good Texan woman awaits their most loyal and furry friend, as our chic San Antonio pet setter Suzanne Negley learns.

KOURTNEY LITTLE & LADY LITTLE, SAN ANTONIO

How would you describe your dog’s style?                                                    

It’s definitely casual-chic. Lady Little is not one to be dressed up in sparkly outfits, yet loves a good blow out.

If your pet had a voice, who would it sound like?

I’d like to think she sounds a little bit raspy and a little Valley Girl-ish…a lot like Zooey Deschanel

 

KRISTEN KILPATRICK & RAINEY, AUSTIN

What is your favorite Texas activity together?

Hands down it’s playing fetch at Red Bud Isle Park. Rainey loves the water and especially to bite at it while swimming. She will do this for hours and then spend the entire next day napping. “Ruff“ life indeed.

Does your dog have any irrational fears?

Definitely the vacuum cleaner. Every time I have it out she acts as if it’s a UFO coming to board her onto a spaceship filled with cats.

 

ALICE JOHNSON & MR. BEAN, HOUSTON

What is your four-legged love story?

Funny thing when you ask Santa for the “it” blow dryer and La Mer face cream, but he brings you a puppy instead? Jolly ol’ Saint Nick clearly thought I’d enjoy being a pup’s mother versus having perfectly moisturized skin and smooth hair. He was right. 

If your lil’ pal was a musician in another life, who would he have been?

He would be Lou Reed for sure. I sense in a past life he took some walks on the wild side.
