Dog Milkers! We have a very, very, VERY exciting announcement to make today. Remember our post about the Donation by Design tags from blanketID? The ones where designers create a tag and a portion of the sales goes to the designer’s charity of choice? Yeah, that one! Well, we’ve been sitting on this info for a little while now, so you can imagine our excitement at finally being able to spill the beans. Drum roll, please…
We are thrilled to introduce the Dog Milk Donation by Design Collection for blanketID!
There aren’t enough exclamation marks in the world to adequately express how stoked we are about this. Seriously. So, want to hear more about our collaboration? Read on!
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.
The following post is brought to you by Fun Time Dog Shop. We’re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
Remember The 13 Project we wrote about last week? Well, if you’re looking for an easy way to get involved and support rescue dogs, Fun Time Dog Shop is the place for you!

I’m really drawn to these event posters from The Underdog Club — printed in black and white on newsprint, they have a vintage feel and feature that awesome logo graphic. But what really touches my heart about these posters is the truly awesome organization their sales support — a group dedicated to helping out the most “unadoptable” of dogs: “the old, the ugly, and the unpopular.”
The Safe Harbor Prison Dog Program is a wonderful organization that gives both man and man’s best friend a second chance at life. Started back in 2004, the organizers behind Safe Harbor had this lofty goal in mind: “to save as many dogs as we can, provide them with safe harbor, and give them a second chance at life.” Safe Harbor rescues dogs that have been mistreated, abandoned, and sent to high-kill animal shelters across the Midwest. Once rescued, they are sent to the Lansing Correctional Facility, where 100 inmates, trained as animal handlers, foster the dogs.
