Just in time to cozy up for the winter, See Scout Sleep (otherwise known as the company with perhaps the best logo in the whole wide world) has launched a new line of dog beds, the Billie Jean Collection, in both denim and army green. The sophisticated new line joins several other great designs that Scout has rolled out since the last time we checked in with the Louisiana company.
I love everything from Dusen Dusen, but since this is a dog blog, let’s talk about the dog sweaters, shall we? They feature modern block prints and are handmade in Bolivia from 100% alpaca yarn. There are human versions of each design, so the pups and I could wear matching sweaters. I think they’d be into that.
Katherine Streeter is an NYC-based painter and collage artist who features dogs frequently in her work. She’s got original collage pieces up for sale in her Etsy shop, in case you’ve got any dog lovers on those holiday lists you’re drawing up. (I’m on your holiday list, right?) Check out more after the jump.
What is it about fall comin’ on that makes me want to buy new clothes? OK, well, full disclosure: that happens every time the seasons change. If you’re looking to add a little pup-inspired pizazz to your fall wardrobe, mosey on over to Modcloth – they’ve got a slew of new things for fall featuring furry friends of all sizes and styles. These two are my favorites – the Champion the Paws Sweater and the Falling in Puppy Love Tunic.
If you live with dogs (and I’m going to assume you do), you know that they’re capable of all kinds of dirty. Hair, dander, every-little-thing-they-bring-in-from-outside… it winds up on your floors, on your furniture, and in the air you breathe. If you or your pup suffer from environmental allergies, breathing in all that particle-laden air isn’t very cool. This month, Mingus and Dottie test out the BreatheSmart air purifier from Alen to see how it handles two dogs’ worth of dirty air.
I carry a little piece of my dogs with me everywhere I go — in the form of little white husky hairs all over my clothes and person. Here’s a cooler way to carry a reminder of your pup with you when you leave home: super-cute dog and bone keychains from Crate & Barrel. They’re made of soft merino wool felt and won’t shed all over your car. Sweet.
I love the new Fetch! canvas toys from Ore Pet. With their Americana-themed photo graphics, they’ve got a wholesome, Norman Rockwell sort of vibe going on. And speaking of wholesome, they’re made from eco-friendly recycled canvas, so they’re easy on the earth (and machine-washable, too!). Check out the whole mess of ‘em over at Ore Pet.
