Get Leashed gets to know this fantastic modern-glam fam!
By the Get Leashed Doggy Style team
Stepping into Tally & Andrew’s home is like entering into a glamorous purple world. Floor to ceiling black and white portraits of celebrities and models adorn this new age, classy pop home (we just made up classy pop and we’re not sure what it means but it feels right). Add in the cutest baby and one adorable Morkie and you have a wonderful, comfortable, beautiful home complete with matching family.
Tell us about yourself:
I am a personal injury litigation lawyer. I have my own law firm with 3 partners. Our firm D’Angela Fox Vanounou LLP has only been around for 6 years. 6 years ago we took the gamble of a lifetime and decided to take the leap and open our own law firm at Yonge and Sheppard.
I absolutely love my career, I love to help innocent accident victims whose lives have been affected by unfortunate accidents. As cheesy as it sounds i wake up every morning excited for the many challenges my work entails.
Andrew is similarly passionate about his career, what started off as side business based on his love of cars has blossomed into a full blown career. Andrew manages fleets of exotic cars, does bespoke modifications to exotics and manufactures various products exclusively for exotic cars.
What’s your ideal weekend?
After a hectic full workweek we look forward to time with our baby daughter Orly and our dog Zorro. We love to entertain at our home and be surrounded by friends and family.
Tell us about your pet:
We decided to get a dog 2 months after we were married. We chose the Morkie breed because we wanted a small cute hypo-allergenic dog.
I was pregnant by the time we picked Zorro up from the breeder. Zorro could sense I was pregnant and he was very attached and protective of me. Since Orly was born, Zorro’s been totally fascinated with her and they play together often.
The funniest thing that Zorro does is pull his bed out and drag it throughout the house as if he’s moving out. Zorro also loves to lick Andrew’s glass whenever he’s drinking scotch. He’ll stick his nose in the glass, take a lick, then have a sneezing fit.
How would you describe your personal style?
What inspires you?
I live by the motto “live with passion”.
How would you describe the look and feel of your home?
Because of my extensive art collection, our home is a cross between a museum and a cozy welcoming entertainment pad. The house is decorated in bold, dark colors with furnishings reminiscent of baroque /Hollywood glamor.
A relationship-defining pet story:
Zorro doesn’t really suit his name anymore because his colors have completely changed and his black face is now all white. He’s still our little snuggle prince and he loves to give kisses. I cannot sit on the couch without him coming and sitting on top of me. He always parks himself on my chest to watch TV with us.
