In honor of our June Coastal issue, which features Seamus the Bernedoodle, we’re celebrating our four-legged friends all month long. Find out how you and your pup can enter our Instagram giveaway, and check out what the Our State staff has to say about their tail-wagging buddies.




Instagram Giveaway

Thank you to everyone for participating in Our State‘s Dogs of Summer Instagram Giveaway! From the mountains to the coast, we loved seeing your four-legged pals enjoying the best of our North Carolina summer. We can’t wait to do it all again in 2022!


Congratulations to our grand paw-rize winner, Toby the corgi!

My dog is … an absolute sweetheart. One of the first things people notice about Toby when they meet him is his incredibly sweet demeanor. He loves everyone he meets and will melt your heart with his expressive corgi face. Toby loves car rides, exploring new places, climbing, and being the fun police at the dog park (classic corgi behavior). He’s brought our family immense joy with his ability to make us laugh, his quirky personality, and his little noises he uses to “talk”.
