I hinted last week on Facebook and Twitter that there was something very, very exciting in the pipeline in collaboration with P.L.A.Y.. Well, the time has come Dog Milkers! I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve teamed up with P.L.A.Y. to offer a giveaway for pet lovers and creative folks alike.

We’ve posted about Wildebeest’s pet rugs before, but they just released a brand new “new-and-improved” version along with more color options and sizes!
Gueeeesss what, guys?? It’s almost summertime! I’m beside myself with excitement. Summer means taking hikes, working in the garden, hitting the beach, chillin’ at the lake, and going camping… all, of course, with the pups! Molly Mutt is outfitting your pups for comfort this summer with their new Outside line of outdoor dog duvets, featuring the kind of fun-yet-sophisticated patterns we’ve come to expect from Molly. Designed to re-cover an old dog bed or be stuffed with old linens, the three duvets in the Outside line are water-resistant and durable for tougher outdoor use. They’re the perfect accessory to have on hand when summer adventures leave your dog played-out.
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?)
One of the biggest challenges I face as a dog owner, besides vet bills (ouch) and ticks (grosssss), is finding cool modern dog beds and accessories that fit with my home’s decor. I don’t do ruffles, and I don’t do cutesy. I want fresh, clean, and sophisticated. I get really excited when I see options like the Chimère line by French design company Bloom Room that debuted recently at Milan Design Week 2012. Why can’t all dog stuff be this cool?
Editor’s Note: You barked and we listened! DoggIY is a new monthly column here on Dog Milk where we feature modern DIY dog projects. We’ll be sharing everything from homemade treats to pet beds–and beyond!
We’re kicking our brand spanking new column off with a bang, a sexy birch plywood bang that is. This DIY dog crate coffee table is the brilliant creation of Erin Loechner and her husband Ken who, after a no-luck search for an affordable modern pet crate, decided to make their own. It’s also now the nap time location of Bernie and George (remember those cuties?)!
I’ve been SO excited over the past week or so to stash away all those horrible, bulky sweaters and long sleeves and pull out all my warm-weather clothes. Just in time for spring, Molly Mutt has updated their collection with four fantastic new doggie duvet designs. Following in the tradition of naming their patterns after songs, the new kids on the block are Bleecker Street, Nightswimming, Wild Horses, and Secret Meeting.
