Walking Style: By Steph Brown of Fashion & Style Blog Faiiint

Faiiint-and-Nico-3.jpg

Back in January, I shared my shame that I was beginning to look like the proverbial dog’s dinner stepping out to walk Lord Basil. With a near fashion disaster on our hands, we launched a new feature - ‘Walking Style’ - where we look to other stylish dog-owners for their know-how.

For our latest offering, we chat to Steph of dark fashion and style blog Faiiint and owner to handsome Nico the Husky. With Steph’s penchant for black and Nico’s predisposition to moulting his gorgeous fluffy fur, she’s got her work cut out so read how she handles it all in her fashion stride. Over to you Steph …

Nine to Fido: Rikke Rosenlund of BorrowMyDoggy

Les--Rikke-140314-with-photocredit.jpg

The clue is in the company name but if you’ve not yet heard of BorrowMyDoggy, it’s a scheme where you errrr … get to borrow someone’s pooch.

However don’t fret – the dogs aren’t loaned out to any Tom, Dick and Harry. BorrowMyDoggy is a trusted community of dog lovers where borrowers (often dog-less) help take care of pooches when their owner is too busy for walks, weekends or holidays. A win win situ all round; the dog receives double the affection, the borrower gets their much needed doggy-fix and the owner has peace of mind that their hound is happy and cared for in their absence. 

Not your average doggy business, BorrowMyDoggy co-founder Rikke Rosenlund (pictured right) tells us about her Nine to Fido shapes up running the UK’s premier pup loaning service …

New Buy: Find Momo Dog Book

Find-Momo-Jacket.jpg

Happy World Book Day! We’re celebrating by sharing our new favourite dog book Find Momo, which follows the principal of ‘hound-and-seek’ to find Border Collie Momo, hidden within over hundred photographs.

The #FindMomo concept came to fruition during an Autumn walk when Momo (the handsome fella below) and his owner Andrew Knapp were playing a game of ‘catch the stick’ in their local woods. In pursuit of his prize, Momo ended up hidden behind a tree, waiting. Inspired by the scene, Andrew asked Momo to stay in his position and this became the first of many hide-and-seek shots shared to Instagram. Within a matter of weeks, Momo had gained more than 50,000 followers and is now an international success ...

Launch: Poppy & Rufus Stylish Dog Range

Poppy--Rufus-lead.jpg

I’ve been dying to tell you about Poppy & Rufus ever since I met the brand's founders Sue and Louise at last year’s Discover Dogs but I’ve had to sit tight until such time that their beautifully British dog products were available for your to paw over online. Poppyandrufus.co.uk is now open for business and I strongly recommend you pay them a visit.

First things first let’s talk dogs! Poppy is a working Cocker Spaniel Poppy and Rufus is a Jack Russell, Yorkie and Shi-tzu mix. Their namesake brand was born out of their owners’ (Sue & Louise) frustration in being able to find a functional and stylish dog bed that they didn’t find dull, predictable or kitsch. One thing led to another and their launch collection includes an extensive range of items for you and the dog for use at home and on the go …
