We Gave Humans Booze, Art Supplies, And Dog Models. Here’s What Happened.

This spring, BarkLive hosted a Drink N Draw series powered by P.L.A.Y. for pups and their parents at BarkBox HQ in New York City. Humans were invited to draw their pups with the help of local artists while the dogs socialized in the pawffice!

Pups and pawrents came dressed to impress (twinning of course) to pose in the BarkLive kissing booth!

Some dogs even demanded payment for posing…in their pawferred currency (MORETREATS!!!).

Others took over for the humans to sketch their toy-sniffing pawlleagues.

Some pups took the opportunity to really ham it up for the puparazzi.

Family pawtraits in the BarkLive kissing booth were also popular.

And models took the table to give the humans their best angles.

Toys from P.L.A.Y. had tails wagging all night long!

While their humans were occupied with art & wine, old pals had some time for quality catching up.

Some pups posed, others played – and then there were the ones who couldn’t quite make up their minds!

Friendships were forged (with a little bit of side-eye).

Such excite, much fashion.

Thanks to all of the NYC pups who brought their humans out for a fun night at BarkBox HQ!

Extra barks go out to P.L.A.Y. for pawviding the amazing toy displays pictured. Pups at the party kept busy testing all of the toys and had a blast.
