I spotted this Double Duty idea on Ammo the Dachshund’s blog recently and HAD to share. These stylish floor bins are intended to store human kid toys, but they would be perfect for fur-kid toys too! Made with 100% organic cotton canvas, each bin is reversible AND adjustable — simply fold the top to the desired height. Check out all the color options on Land of Nod!
If you’re connected with us on Facebook, you might remember that we posted there about the Yellow Dog Project a while back. The Yellow Dog Project is a brilliant campaign created to designate dogs who need a little more space when they’re out and about — dogs who are leash reactive, sick, elderly, recovering from surgery, or who maybe just don’t like other pups all up in their grille. The smart and simple idea is that dogs who need their space wear a yellow ribbon on their leash or collar — and if you and your dog see a pup sporting yellow ribbon, politely step away and give that pooch the space he needs.
Of course, this brilliant system only works if people know about it, so we’re stoked to see the Yellow Dog Project getting some attention in places like USA Today. Yellow Dog’s website has handy-handy fliers you can print to hand out (or tack up at local doggie hangouts) to help spread the word. Check ‘em out!
I’m excited to share a very special Dog-I-Y with you today! Natalya Zahn, a brilliant illustrator and mom to a handsome dog named Oscar, is here sharing a very clever (and easy!) DIY project that any doggy parent will appreciate and be able to make. Read on!
These sculptures by Japanese artist Haroshi took my breath away when I spotted them recently on Design Milk. They’re made from recycled skateboard decks… can you even?? Wow. See more and learn about his process right here.
I’m excited to get The Scoop on the canine muse behind one of my favorite bloggers and photographers, Dabito of Old Brand New. When he’s not sharing gorgeous images of his daily adventures (including decorating his incredible home, thrifting for vintage finds, and making/eating delicious food), he’s posting photos of his pup Beatrice on his blog and Instagram. To say I’m completely smitten with this little dog would be an understatement! So, let’s meet Ms. Beatrice, shall we?
Editor’s Note: We’re excited about our new art column The Scratchbook! Each month we’ll be featuring an exclusive dog-themed illustration done by one of our favorite artists. Enjoy!
To say that I’m excited about this month’s Scratchbook artist would be a huge understatement! Seriously. I am so stoked, you guys. When Jana Bonsignore, whose fashion-inspired illustrations we featured last year, sent in the illustrations we commissioned for March, I kinda lost my mind (in a good way). This series, which she’s calling “Fun Facts“, features several adorable — and amusingly sassy — French Bulldogs. Read on to see them all!
Subscription boxes are a big trend in the retail world right now, with everything from DIY crafts to, of course, pet products. (We’ve featured two of our faves, Barkbox and Bugsy’s Box before.) Quarterly Co. takes this basic idea and improves upon it in a truly unique way!
