Store Sidekicks: Charlie at Billy Reid Likes to Sleep in a Suitcase

New, 3 comments

Meet Charlie, professional dachshund and resident of Billy Reid's Nashville flagship. Charlie is shy and serious. He sleeps in a suitcase by the register—note the letter a young customer wrote to Charlie that's taped inside the lid. It says: "Charlie, ILU."

Charlie's always been a hit with the ladies, but he doesn't let it go to his head. Once, a little girl locked Charlie in his suitcase. He didn't really like that.
