My husband and I have this running joke that whenever we take a trip anywhere, Dottie wants us to bring her back a T-shirt. (She never gets a T-shirt.) If you are one to treat your pup to the occasional tee, however, you’ll be happy to know that T-shirt purveyor extraordinaire, Threadless, has new graphic hoodies for dogs. And hoodies aren’t all… Threadless has a whole new line of great beds and bowls, too. And like all of Threadless’ goods, they feature designs submitted by members of the Threadless community.
Last week Flavorwire posted a charming collection of photos of famous writers with their pets, including the likes of Kurt Vonnegut (above), John Steinbeck, Edith Wharton, and Virginia Woolf and their beloved pups. So many writers in the collection are already literary heroes of mine, and seeing that they, too, had a connection with dogs makes me feel all snuggly inside. More pics (and photo credits) after the jump.

Musician Fiona Apple posted the above letter on her Facebook page on Tuesday. In it, she explains why she is postponing her upcoming South American tour: because her aging dog, Janet, is declining rapidly, and Apple wants to be with Janet when she passes away. It’s heartfelt and heartbreaking, and it gets right at why I’m so grateful, on this American day of thanks, and every day, to have dogs in my life. (Full transcription of the letter after the jump.)
Editor’s Note: In an effort to sniff out the best new dog products, we’ve launched Mingus & Dottie Try It, a monthly review column where our contributor Katherine and her pooches put some of these pawesome finds to the test!
This month Mingus and Dottie, in their undying efforts to find you the very best dog products (as well as live lives enviable to most humans), have reviewed the Kingston natural memory foam dog bed from Essentia. So, what did they think?
Lauren Gregg is a designer and illustrator from Athens, GA, and she’s also a dog owner, which makes her my kind of people. She created the above painting for a tribute in San Francisco to filmmaker Wes Anderson (referencing, from Moonrise Kingdom, “Was he a good dog?” “Who’s to say.”, which made me laugh harder and longer than anything I’ve seen in a movie all year, as in, people in the theater were probably getting annoyed with me). One of Lauren’s pups, a Frenchie named Reggie, suffers from allergy problems, and Lauren’s selling silkscreen prints of her Moonrise Kingdom painting to help pay for his treatments. If you use the code dogmilk, she’ll give you 30% off till December 1st. Go help!
