Top Dog at The Harrison: Coco

Nickname: Coco Loco

Breed: Pomeranian

Treat Of Choice: Mini-Dingos are my favorite…also Greenies.

Greatest loves: My mom is definitely my number one love. But I also enjoy running wildly down the hallway, quacking at the slightest provocation; anything that even smells like a treat; a freshly-washed fluffy bed; and trips to Carmel where people dote on me and tell me I’m adorable.

Pet peeves: More than anything in the world, I hate when my dad picks me up and holds me in the air like a stuffed animal. Other pet peeves include knocks on the door, or the ring of a doorbell; when someone tries to take any of my (many) toys; knots in my fur; attempts to brush my teeth; and not being the center of attention when my brother is around.

Favorite neighborhood establishments: The Embarcadero (EmBARKadero); birthday parties next door at 333 Harrison with my friend Scooby; and The Harrison Grand Salon—everyone there is nice and gives me a hug.


Favorite spot in my high-rise home: My absolute favorite spot is the little crevice between the column and the wall in our living room, where no one can see me. I also like my little yellow Ferrari car bed in the guest room.

Favorite perks at The Harrison: I like the Pantry, especially the crumbs that people leave on the ground, and the staff in the Grand Salon—they always open the door for me and say hello every morning.

Morning routine: I typically wake up the very second that my parents stir in the other room. Immediately, I start to scuffle around and quack. I quack A LOT. Then I tell my brother to get in on the action and make noise. Eventually, after I get food, my mom takes me to the best area for peeing outside One Rincon Hill.

Top tricks: I’m really good at jumping off couches, beds and other high surfaces that give my parents a scare…every time. I’m also great at yoga stretches (by the way, downward dog is so cliche) and organizing my toys into little clusters around the apartment.


Guilty pleasures: Peeing on the white-and-blue carpet (very hard to clean); listening to Carly Rae Jepsen (Call Me Maybe); and staring at myself in the mirror. I find it very soothing.

Most embarrassing story: I’m 5 years old and I wear a diaper. End of story.

Where I first laid eyes on my mom/dad/family: At first I was chasing my brothers around, antagonizing them and trying to bite their tails. Then, my mom came into the room. She picked me up off the floor, gave me a kiss and the rest is history.

Tell us a little about your owner: My mom and dad work on television. My Mom is a weathercaster for Telemundo 48 and my Dad is a reporter for NBC Bay Area. Therefore, I’m a bilingual doggie 🙂


Top Dogs at The Harrison: Billy & Charlie

Nickname: Bill-Bo and Chuck/Charlie Bear

Breed: Yorkie (Billy) and Golden Retriever (Charlie)

Treat of choice: Peanut butter filled Kongs, Charlie Bears (thanks to our concierge Aaron), salmon and chicken.

Greatest loves: Going for hikes, trips to the dog park to see our friends, adventures to Fort Funston, swimming (Charlie is basically a fish disguised as a dog), chasing squirrels and fetching tennis balls (Billy’s favorite).

Pet peeves: Toys that can’t be destroyed (although our parents seem to love them) and dogs on TV—what are they doing in our house?!

Favorite neighborhood establishments: Crissy Fields, Fort Funston and the dog park off Main Street where all of our friends hang out.

Favorite spot in my high-rise home: Does our concierge Aaron’s desk count? It’s not technically our home, but that’s definitely our favorite spot in The Harrison. Aaron always gives us lots of treats and belly scratches; we could hang out there all day if our parents would let us!

Favorite perks at The Harrison: Our friends! We’ve met so many fun pups that also call The Harrison home, like Tulsi and little Charlie. They’re the best.

Morning routine: Much to Billy’s dismay, Charlie wakes up promptly at 6 a.m. Charlie goes on a quick trip outside then eats breakfast—the best part of the day. A few hours later, around 8 a.m., Billy finally crawls out of bed. He’s not much of a morning guy.

Top tricks: Sit, shake, and lay down are about the extent of our tricks, but we’ve got those three down pat.

Guilty pleasures: Charlie is a big fan of chasing his tail, and Billy loves to show off his vocal skills. Something we have in common, though, is sneaking human food when our parents aren’t watching.

Most embarrassing story: Charlie has run into glass doors on multiple occasions and Billy has a tendency to bark at completely unthreatening objects, like statues and fake owls.

Where we first laid eyes on our parents: For Billy it was Christmas morning 2008. I was a surprise for my mom, and she still says I was the best Christmas present ever. Charlie made his entrance a few years later in 2017. Our dad had to fly to Michigan to pick him up, but we all think he was worth the trip!

Tell us a little about your owner: Our parents are Jake and Lauren, and they’re both in Tech Sales. We’re happy anytime the four of us are together, but our tails really wag when we go on hiking/beach trips to Half Moon Bay and camping in Yosemite!

Top Dogs at The Harrison: Charlie the “Morkie”

Nickname: Charles

Breed: Morkie (half maltese, half yorkie)

Age: 6 months

Treat of choice: Charlee Bear All Natural Dog Treats (the ones that Aaron, our Luxury Attaché, gives all The Harrison dogs)

Greatest loves: Visiting the beach, playing fetch and saying hi to every human who walks by.

Pet peeves: Hair dryers, lawnmowers, water fountains, vacuums and losing my teeth

Favorite neighborhood establishments: Epic, Waterbar, The Bow and Arrow Park, Rincon Hill Dog Park and, of course, Pawtrero!

Favorite spot in my high-rise home: My mommy’s bed

Favorite perks at The Harrison: It’s awesome to be one of the youngest pups at the Harrison. Everyone says hi to me and gives me lots of treats and love. I enjoy chewing my bone and people watching in the grand salon and love visiting the pantry and munching on all the pastry crumbs.

Morning routine: Every morning I go down to The Pantry with mommy, in hopes to run into other Harrison dogs and of course the lovely people who make sure The Pantry is perfect for us. I then take the giant gold elevator down to the grand salon and stop by the reception desk for more love from the Harrison staff. Sometimes I get overly excited, and tinkle a little, but do my best to hold it until we leave for our walk. I always end the morning with a visit to our attaché and if I’m lucky he gives me two treats!

Top tricks: I can fetch, sit and lie down. I recently learned how to lift my paw up against the trees when I have to pee! I am still learning what “shake” means.

Guilty pleasures: String cheese and blueberries

Most embarrassing story: I was shopping with mommy in Westfield Mall and really had to go to the bathroom. Mommy was taking forever, so I pooped on the mannequin. Luckily, I am so cute that the store employees still gave me lots of pets and treats despite my accident.

Where I first laid eyes on my mommy: I plopped right down on her lap and refused to move until she took me home.
