It’s been a while since we checked in with Modernist Cat and it looks like they’ve added a new item just for dogs: the Dwell Crate! I don’t know about you, but a Walnut-veneer crate seems much more appealing than a wire cage. Plus, this crate comes with its own fleece bed, available in 6 colors. NICE.
Today is Wrigley’s sixth birthday, y’all! To borrow a quote from Jen Bilik, ‘this is what six looks like‘:
There’s wisdom in those eyes, am I right? (And also a deep-seated hatred for delivery trucks of all sizes… I have no idea why.)
Since we’re all about living stylishly with our canine friends here at Dog Milk, Wrigley has put together a birthday wishlist — one item for every year. Check out his picks below!
When the good folks from Vancouver-based design studio Gamla Studio emailed me with the subject line “Walnut and Brass Dog Den” I couldn’t open it fast enough. Walnut? And brass?? I wasn’t sure if my mixed-material-loving, crazy-dog-lady heart could handle the images that awaited my gaze. Then I opened the email and saw this:
WHOA. Now that is a thing of beauty, my friends.
We’re winding down the year here at Dog Milk and taking some time to look back at the awesome posts, products, pets, and people we’ve had a chance to feature in 2012. Over the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing the top posts from our main categories before we unveil the best of the best: the ten most popular posts of 2012!
First up is every lazy dog’s favorite category: beds and furniture!
Floating Dog Beds from Frontgate — What dog wouldn’t want to while away the summer hours on one of these?
We’re kicking off a week of holiday gift guides today, starting with 20 warm and cozy beds, crates, and sleeping accessories! Happy Howl-idays!
1. Dog Duvets by Molly Mutt
2. Hemp Koosh Pouf from Pet Modern
3. Spotty Dotty Circle Bed by Waggo
4. Mid-Century Modern Dog Furniture by Modernist Cat
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?)!
