Zilker Bark and High Note are teaming up to provide you with the dog portrait of your dreams! Join us to get a high-quality digital portrait of your dog in front of our lush, greenery-filled photo set, then enjoy a refreshing cocktail while lounging on our patio.
This event is free to attend. We are offering happy hour specials, treats for your pup, and a percentage of food proceeds (all day) donated to Lizzy’s Animal Hospice, a local nonprofit serving terminally ill and elderly dogs. Come hungry!
We are asking for a donation of $10 for each portrait slot, and 100% of these proceeds will go to Lizzy’s.
Ben White Florist is providing flower crowns for your dog to wear during his/her photo.
All week (Sunday, October 13 to Sunday, October 20), we will also offer our Lavender Crown cocktail with $2 from each drink sale donated to Lizzy’s.
The mission of Lizzy’s Animal Hospice is to provide a home environment to the most vulnerable companion animals in a shelter environment, or who would ultimately end up in a shelter, which are those who are elderly, terminally ill, and homeless.

The event is open to the public and free to attend. The only cost is a donation for the dog portrait, and food and drinks if you choose to dine on our lovely patio.
Portrait spots require a $10 donation.
Each dog will have between one to three minutes on "stage." This is plenty of time to get a few great shots of your dog!
We will photograph one dog per portrait spot, so if you have multiple dogs you must purchase multiple spots.
You will receive a link to download your photo within 48 hours.
While our patio is completely gated, we ask you to keep your dog on leash.
This event is SOLD OUT! Sign up below to be the first notified about future events!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much is a portrait and what will we get for it?
Book your portrait slot for $10, which will go directly to Lizzy’s Animal Hospice. Your dog will have a few minutes to grab the perfect shot. Each purchase will include a digital file for you to download.
Can I be in the photo with my dog?
Based on set size capacity, to keep the line moving smoothly, and to minimize disruption on the set, the photos will focus on one (1) dog.
Can I bring a pet that is not a dog?
Of course! Keep in mind that there will be MANY dogs around. It is probably not the best environment for a cat, but we have done a beautiful pig portrait in the past!
Can I have more than one dog in a photo?
The photo set will not accompany more than one (1) dog. One (1) dog per photo.
How and when will I receive the photo of my dog?
Photos will be sent 48 hours after the event to the email that you signed up with. Photos will be available for digital download. We’d love for you to tag @highnoteatx, @zilkerbark and @benwhiteflorist #myhighnote
Where can I park?
There is an adjacent parking lot in the Cole building. There is also plenty of free street parking along Toomey Rd., Jessie St., and in the surrounding area.
How can I make sure we capture the best photo of my dog?
GREAT QUESTION, and thank you for asking!
Practice "sit" and "stay" in a busy environment. Exercise your dog(s) before you come. Arrive early to allow your dog to become comfortable with the environment.
Lastly, and most importantly, please do not jeopardize the experience of others by bringing a reactive dog. If a dog exhibits aggressive behavior, we will have to ask the owner and dog to leave for the safety of others. We are VERY well versed in the ways of the dog and want to make sure your dog's experience is a success!
How can I have a great time?
Come excited! Be patient. And most importantly, be responsible for your pet. This means keeping your dog on leash, being prepared with poop bags and being respectful of those around you. Please do not let your dog's behavior impact the experience of others.
All week (Sunday, October 13 to Sunday, October 20), we will offer our Lavender Crown cocktail with $2 from each drink sale donated to Lizzy’s. The Lavender Crown cocktail features Tito’s vodka, blueberry and blackberry medley, cinnamon honey, lavender bitters, basil and seltzer water.
A percentage of all food proceeds from Sunday, October 20 will be donated to Lizzy’s.
All proceeds from the dog portrait shoot will directly benefit Lizzy’s.
