The Hamptons in New York has become ubiquitous with the wealthy enjoying the leisure days of summer in a lifestyle envious to us all. From the ritzy residences to the swanky country clubs and posh stores, it is truly a millionaire’s playground. Well, a new project will give us all something to drool even more over.
Chock full of colorful photos, the rescue Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is seen frolicking around the Hamptons in the 125-page book. From posing at the luxury hotel Topping Rose House to being a fashionista at high-end shoe store Stubbs & Wootton and grabbing a bite at famed Sant Ambroeus, Toast and her not-as-famous sister Muppet are living the live we all yearn for.

While much of the book has Toast posing with big-name brands, her pet parent’s favorite picture is the one of her just being a dog.
“My favorite shot is actually the secret cover behind the cover where they [Toast and Muppet] are running at West Hampton Beach,” Katie Sturino, the “dogager” for Toast, Muppet and their newest addition, Under Pants, or Pants for short, told us at book party at Jonathan Adler’s store in Manhattan. “You are in the city, and they are doing so much people stuff, so it was just a place for them to act like dogs.”
And there is no one more perfect to do the Hamptons doggy style. Rescued from a puppy mill and adopted in 2011, Toast pretty much struck the jackpot, with her famous comedian dad The Fat Jewish and Sturino, the entrepreneur behind fashion website The 12ish. Since being added to the family, she has been featured in The New York Times and Us Weekly, appeared on Good Morning America and the Today show. She has also rubbed shoulders with Karlie Kloss and Reese Witherspoon.
“You can’t look at Toast without falling in love with Toast, and she brings so much awareness to puppy-mill rescues, especially with the spaniel breeds,” says Dorie Herman, the mom to another celeb dog, Chloe Kardoggian. Also, she is so chic, she created her own Hampton.”
As for Muppet, the “Jan Brady” of the dog world, she isn’t too keen on this whole book thing.
“She hates it. She is wondering where MuppetHampton is,” says Sturino, adding that her second dog may instead have to settle for a Jersey Shore book.
We will definitely keep our eyes open for that one, but in the meantime, you can meet Toast and crew at New York City’s The Strand on May 31 at 7 pm (suggest getting there before then as it will get crowded). You can get your book signed by Sturino, a paw print by Toast and a photo. The cost of admission, including the book, is $16.99. Head over to The Strand to snag your copy.
