Hi fellow Dog Milk readers! This is Jon, from Happymundane.com. When I’m not working or blogging, you can usually find me hanging out with my pup Pepé. Dog Milk kindly invited me to put together a little round up of some of my (and Pepé’s) favorite dog-centric things, so here are a few of “Pepé’s picks”!
The following post is brought to you by Bliss Paws. We’re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
We had the opportunity recently to pick the brain of Bliss Paws founder and Certified Canine Massage Therapist Susie Tsai. From travel advice to design processes to the ins and outs of dog massages, Susie reveals some great tips and insights into the human-dog relationship. Check out the interview below!
There are few things we can depend on in life — death and taxes, right? Fortunately, there are a few good things I know I can count on, too… fireflies in the summertime, doggy feet that smell like corn chips, and Doca Pet consistently offering up fantastic modern doggy designs. Doca Pet‘s newest raised diners, the Straydog and the Dog-Ear, are fashioned from sturdy, easy-to-clean materials (like powder-coated steel and maple), feature removable stainless-steel bowls, and boast the clean, sophisticated lines we’ve come to expect from the Chicago company.
The IncrediBowl by Buster is an oblong rubber bowl designed specifically for long-eared dogs (though any dog can use it). The unique shape prevents Fido’s floppy ears from falling into the bowl and getting stained, smelly, or in worse-case scenarios, infected. For dogs without long ears, the curved edges encourage slower eating.
The IncrediBowl is available in two sizes and four modern colors from Houndworthy.
Ceramicist Dylan Kendall, known for her playful footed mugs and tabletop accessories, is gearing up to release a whole new collection — just for pets!
So you’re really into a certain dog breed, huh? Maybe you’ve almost come to blows at the dog park defending your favorite breed’s superiority? Well, you might need to look into some anger management, but then you need to check out Dog Breed Cartoons. They’ve got sweet little cartoon representations of literally (literally) hundreds of dog breeds, and in their shop you can find your favorite breed cartoon featured on anything from coffee mugs to belt buckles to laptop sleeves. They are, in a word, j’adorable. (You may or may not want to use that word.)
I love the Mid-Century vibe of these raised pet feeders from Modern Mews. Available in a variety of colors, these birch plywood and steel feeders come in a double bowl or triple bowl option.
