I think some dogs look adorable in sweaters but, admittedly, I’ve never really felt the urge to put clothes on Wrigley. Except that one time my friend made him a sweater and I put it on him to see what would happen. He gave me the “look of death” and stood, frozen in place, for about 20 minutes. I thought he looked quite dapper, but it was obvious he thought it was some sort of punishment. Sad day.
So, let’s hear it. Do you dress up your dog? Do they love it or hate it? How extreme do their outfits get?

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the official launch of LeLePets, a discount/daily deal site for designer pet products, for some time and am happy to report that–as of this very moment–it is officially open for business! There are a handful of members-only shopping sites like this, but none dedicated solely to pet products (which is the only thing I ever buy anyway). Many of their products, including items we’ve featured here on Dog Milk, are up to 70% off. You really can’t beat that.
Check out LeLePets and sign up to see what goodies are on sale right now!
Holy smokes*, these dog sculptures are incredible! UK-based artist Helen Thompson aka Holy Smoke creates these expressive canines from wire, natural linen, and vintage textiles.
I’m known around these parts as “the crazy Schnauzer lady”, which is totally cool by me. (In fact, I just ordered this t-shirt after Katherine sent me the link. It’s a FLYING SCHNAUZER, people. I had to.) All this is to say that I simply can’t resist squealing every time I see one of these little bearded dogs, especially one in an awesome home like this. Check out more of this dog’s sweet abode over on Design Milk!
I feel like wearing dog-themed attire is a rite of passage into “crazy dog lady” territory. If you’re ready to take that leap (I am… and have!), check out these resin bracelets by designer Jessica Kagan Cushman.
P.S. Dogster did the heavy lifting and rounded up all her dog-themed designs in one spot, so head over there and let us know which is your fave!
Neroko is a Finnish design studio that was born out of “a great love for dogs and a passion for sustainable Finnish design”, which is to say that Neroko and Dog Milk are two peas in a pod. Their modern pet line includes solid birch beds and “habitats”, stackable ceramic bowls and birch food containers, and even natural jute dog toys! (And how cute is that little dog sculpture?)
I can’t think of a better way to kick off the week than with these stunning images by Minneapolis-based pet photographer Karin Newstrom. If these photos don’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will!
