Yesterday I got a chance to go to a preview of “The Company Of Dogs”. PetsPyjamas has collaborated with renowned animal portrait photographer Gerrard Gethings and the Dogs Trust to create this exhibition to celebrate our friendship with our canine companions. This exhibition is sponsored by Radley.

Famous celebrities who are taking part with their dogs are Supermodel Elle MacPherson, Yasmin Le Bon, Alex James, Daisy Lowe, Gok Wan, Mark Ronson, Peaches Geldof, Rosie Fortescue and many more.
The Press Preview event was fantastic. It was such great atmosphere and lots of people and celebrities brought their dogs to the exhibition. The exhibition is on two floors with plenty of points of interest such as dog topiary and the Canine Cosy.

There were lots of amazing snacks that were brought out including cookies that looks like dog biscuits. At some point I was wondering whether those were for dogs or humans.
A lot of celebrities and their dogs were at the event and we managed to snap quite a few pictures. I think all the dogs were certainly enjoying all the attention from the people at the event. I was finding it quite challenging to focus at some points because there were too many cute dogs and I just wanted to stop and pet them.

I thought it was a brilliant event that brings everyone together through the love of our canine companions to help a deserving charity. The photographs were even more incredible in person. So if you can make it to the PetsPyjamas gallery, then I highly recommend it. You can see these portraits in person at PetsPyjamas gallery at 81 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4QS from 21 – 29 March. It is open from 10am until 5pm. Visit PetsPyjamas for more details.
