Regardless there’s always room for an extra decoration or two, which is why we are shopping for Christmas decorations with a canine twist …

Art-Sea-Craft-Sea.jpg

The encounter between Art Sea Craft Sea and Barkarama at this year’s Discover Dogs was pretty special. Our jaw dropped, and the face of their creative genius, Stacey Chapman, lit up!

To quote Stacey: “Seeing your jaw drop was one of the highlights of my life! It is the kind of reaction any artist would ever dream of, so thank you for your life enhancing reaction!” When you see Stacey’s dog designs, we’re pretty sure you’ll be equally impressed …

Label Lust: Marc by Marc Jabobs New Dog-Themed Collection

Marc-Jacobs-Oliver-iPHONE-cover.jpg

Any guesses why we are particularly lustful for the latest installment of dog-themed apparel and accessories from designer Marc Jacobs? Yes folks, that is indeed the squishy mush of a Boston Terrier you see before you, inspired by Marc’s favourite BT Olive.

Now as someone who spends most of their dog-walking hours explaining that our dog Basil is not a French Bulldog when they point at him and say ‘ooh I love / want one of those dogs’ or ‘my friend has one of those’, we’re thrilled to see the American Gent take centre stage. Not that we don’t love a Frenchie, just to be clear. Now back to the collection …

Label Lust: Gothenburg Wellingtons

Brown-Riding_Gothenburg-boots.jpg

Whether you’re a city or country dweller, Wellington boots have most definitely been the dog-walking attire of the day for the past week or so. While a plain pair will suffice, there’s no harm in injecting some extra style into your walks, which is why we’re taken with Gothenberg London's range of luxury Wellington boots designed to be as practical as they are stylish.

Gothenburg London derives its inspiration from the legacy of a thirty-year family history of shoe and leatherwork and an instinctive appreciation of the qualities of traditional craftsmanship. Our favourite styles include …

Launch: Pup Tart Online Boutique

Puptart-main.jpg

The best things come in small packages and case in point when Basil and I received a surprise gift on Saturday morning from new online pet boutique Pup Tart.

Sweet, not only by name, Pup Tart’s standout factor is the special touches they add to your shopping experience to give you and your pup that warm, fuzzy feeling. As I unwrapped our gift (see with Basil on my lap), I couldn’t help but smile at the cute stickers across the packaging, bearing happy messages such as ‘Your dog’s dreams just came true!’ and ‘Yeay’. There’s even a postcard of their in-house pup Indy (above) - a Norfolk Terrier/bit of a surprise cross! …
