Washington Humane Society
Phoebe joined SKB in 2012 and has been enjoying the good nature of the staff, steady food and the special treats hidden in the designers' file drawers ever since.
She closely supervises the staff, inspects the models by testing their structural capacity and stretches out on anything important laid on a horizontal surface at the precise moment it needs to be studied. No carpet, fabric or chair sample review is complete until Her Highness has slept on it.
No, she doesn't remind us of anyone in particular, why would you think that?
