Brace yourselves, because there’s about to be some serious cuteness up in here. Have you seen Aya Sakai’s Instagram feed? She’s a Tokyo mom who posts daily photos of her son and his best friend, his French bulldog Muu. Sakai captures the pair watching TV, cruising the neighborhood, and snuggled up together in slumber. It’s like a daily cuteness contest between the kid and the dog, and guess who wins? We do.
It’s awards-show season, which never ceases to remind me how much I love a well-dressed man. Given, I’m a dog lover, so how would I feel about a well-dressed dog? Turns out, I feel pretty awesome about it. While I’m generally not into overly humanizing dogs, the new tumblr Menswear Dog has me checking it several times a day, desperate for updates. Menswear Dog (a three-year-old Shiba Inu from, of course, NYC) models dapper menswear ensembles, providing both fashion inspiration and (hopefully?) daily doses of squee. Find him on tumblr and Instagram.
Sooooo…. this has been making the rounds on the Interwebs this month: French photographer Erwan Fichou‘s 2007 portrait series of “dogs and their masters wearing coats or sweaters carefully knitted from lovingly gathered dog hair”. This isn’t a new phenomenon by any means (have you seen the Crafting with Cat Hair book? *shudder*), but it does pose an unavoidable question:
Would you, dear Dog Milkers, ever wear a sweater made from dog fur? Why or why not?
Bark out loud in the comments below!

Lisa Cervone contacted me recently to share this series of portraits she photographed for Detroit Dog Rescue, the first no-kill rescue in the metro Detroit area. Mostly pitties and pit mixes, the images are at once heartbreaking and full of hope: while their individual stories are horrifying (and sadly, a common occurrence) many of these previously-abused dogs have since found forever homes.
Photographer Albert Lewis recently completed this stunning coffee table book featuring the dogs of the grueling 1000+ mile Iditarod dog sled race. (You may have seen his highly successful Kickstarter campaign over the summer.) Born to Run: Athletes of the Iditarod is a love letter to these beautiful and inspiring canine athletes, whose hearts and souls are captured in brilliant studio portraits.
