Jewelry designer Kelly Gerber has teamed up with The Barktorialist for a special, limited edition collection of gold-plated and sterling silver charms. From statements (such as ‘Rescued‘ or ‘Royal‘) to promises (my fave being ‘I will not hump indiscriminately‘), each tag is a fun, stylish way to express your dog’s personality — or even your own! These charms can be attached to a charm bracelet or necklace just as easily as a collar. Check out the full collection available exclusively from The Barktorialist.
Lulu, Dog Milk’s resident couch potato, turns 8 today! She’s an old 8, but she’s in good spirits and is happy with her life in sunny California. Here are some of the things on her birthday wishlist:
1. Solvit PupSTEP Stairs: Doggy steps. Lulu hurt her knee a few months ago and isn’t healing very quickly. However, she loves car rides and sleeping on the bed, so she needs an easy way for these things to be more accessible to her so she doesn’t cause more injury.
2. Homer the Hedgehog: Lulu loves chomping on soft fuzzy toys like this one; it soothes her anxiety when new people come to visit.
3. Dogleg Diner: Lulu could use a new set of dining bowls like these from Doca Pet. She loves raised feeders and especially likes the color red.
4. Billie Jean Bed: Lulu is a minimalist, but when it comes to beds, the more the merrier. We’re moving into a new house in a few months and she’ll need more beds around the house.
5. Bully Stick 6 Pack: There’s no treat Lulu loves more than Bully Sticks!
Happy birthday, Lulu!
From poop bags to all-natural treats, we’ve featured a variety of subscription services here on Dog Milk. Each one has something a little bit different to offer (and may be a better fit than others depending on your needs), including PetBox. While PetBox follows the familiar monthly delivery model, it differs from similar services in that it’s the only one that allows you to pick what’s in your box! For those who opt for lengthier subscriptions, this is kinda awesome as it lets you avoid getting the same types of items over and over (you can only go through so many treats in a month, ya know?).
We share a lot of awesome products here on Dog Milk and, because of that, I frequently receive emails asking for product recommendations or shopping sources. Well, I’m excited to let you know that we have launched an official Dog Milk account on Luvocracy, where you can shop all our top product picks in one spot! Everything from toys to beds to collars and even cool stuff for humans, it’s all there. We even have a “Tried and Tested” collection featuring items that we use and love.
I am completely obsessed with these wood postcards from Cardtorial! Each card features a laser-engraved dog cameo and a witty line about the breed, with space for writing a note and address on the reverse side. Check ‘em out in the Cardtorial Etsy shop!
If you’re as obsessed with Scandinavian-inspired decor as I am, or just want to pamper your dog with a seriously cozy bed, then you’ll definitely love this (faux) sheepskin and memory foam bed from Skookum Dog! Resident product testers Wrigley and Smash recently got to try one out (if you follow Dog Milk on Instagram, you already saw a sneak peak). Check out our review below!
I’ve been following W L F H N D on Instagram for the last half year and loving every image they share, so I figured it was about time (duh!!) to check out the blog behind the photos. And boy am I glad I did! Claire Wolfson, the founder of Dachshund-themed accessories company Bean, launched W L F H N D in October of 2013 with the goal to share life and style inspiration for “fashion-forward hounds and humans”. While W L F H N D may have a small archive at the moment, it more than makes up for it with fantastic content, including Claire and her dogs’ style endeavors, ‘streethound’ style encounters, and general dog-focused lifestyle inspiration.
So, if the intersection where fashion and dogs meet is your jam, definitely add W L F H N D to your must-read list!
