Keane Collars is owned by Michael Normore and named after Michael’s lovable Siberian Husky (above). Inspired by his pup, Michael created a line of stylish yet tough leather collars and leashes for just about any size dog. Having a large breed dog myself (Lulu is ~75lbs), I know how challenging it is to find accessories that work for bigger dogs.
I started to think about my relationship with my dogs and what my dogs are helping me do. They’re pretty lazy so they don’t help me become more active. In fact I think I could teach them a thing or two! However, the article also states that we learn about love through our dogs. This idea struck more of a chord for me. There is a bond that you create with your pet that isn’t unlike the bond with a child. I’ve had other dogs in my lifetime, but I think it’s at this particular time in my life — early 30s — that I really needed to learn and understand the parent/child type of love. My dogs have taught me that.
Has your dog improved your mental or physical health in some way?
Guk is a lamp by Fitorio Leksono that is designed using a simple bending technique of a plastic sheet into an imaginative shape of puppy. Guk comes flat-packed and is easy to store because it is basically made of a plastic sheet, an electric wire, and a pair of short ropes. The name, Guk, comes from the Indonesian spelling of “bark.” I love how the electrical cord becomes a tail!
As the fortunate dog-mommy of a sweet little dog who loves to dress up, this is a very exciting time of the year for me. Deciding what Miles is going to be for Halloween is just so much fun! This year, I knew without a doubt, when I came across this shark costume at Old Navy, I had found the winner. One of Miles’ defining features is his prominent, yet adorable, underbite. What’s cuter than a shark with a massive underbite? Not much. (Wouldn’t you agree?) So now that Miles and I are Halloween-ready, we thought we would share some of our favorite costumes with you.
Last week, Crypton launched three new designs by William Wegman, the Multi-Plex collection being my personal favorite. The pillows and bed feature the artist William Wegman?s signature designs, and Crypton’s built-in protection from stains and bacteria. They also contain a built-in moisture barrier that prevents liquids from penetrating the fabric.
