Store Sidekicks: Don't Say "Squirrel" Around Lale at Imogene+Willie

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Meet Lale, top dog at Nashville's one-year old but already super-legendary Imogene+Willie. Lale greets every customer who comes into the store with a waggy tail and a good sniff. She has a squeaky boot toy she loves and jumps when you clap. And just like Dug in Up, Lale gets really excited when you say the word "squirrel." Click through the gallery to see a variety of Lale's cutie-pie facial expressions.

(More on Imogene+Willie to come.)
