As you do on a Monday morning in marketing you browse your colleagues calendars to see when and where they will be going. There is always a trade show they will attend, a client they will visit, a nice exhibition opening they are invited to…
Guess where the Bridgeman Berlin Team will be going the 11th and 12th June? Not in the Dog House (ah. ah. Monday humour) but at House of Dogs : an entire trade show dedicated to Lifestyle mit Hund (hund=dog in German).
All of the sudden I find myself quite jealous of all of them for the following reasons:
1- I am a dog person (meet Olivia, my Hippo-Dog)
2- They will get to enjoy 2 full (working!!) days of dogs and puppies time
3- They will have at their stand the Bridgeman Studio Artist Sally Muir who will do dog’s portraits.
Then you discover that lots of Brigeman’s employees are dog people and that they are equally jealous of the Berlin team. The result is this blog post, born from lots of envy and full of the Pure, Absolute Love only a dog can give you…
