GET TO WORK

Anyone who has glimpsed the pleading brown eyes of their best pal as they head off to work in the morning knows the daily heartbreak of leaving a hound at home. However, Ty Foster’s photo series Dogs at Work shows that there’s a growing number of workplaces changing that rule. “All I can remember as a kid was that dogs live outside, or sleep in doghouses. Are doghouses even a thing anymore?” Foster asked. “Dogs have permeated our entire lives. A lot of dogs have more Instagram followers than you or I, it’s crazy!”

Noticing that many of his clients were allowed to bring their dog to the workplace, an idea sparked for Foster. He connected with companies ranging from breweries to yoga studios to boot manufacturers that all welcome pets at work. The difference between these and human-only workplaces was palpable. “They’re alive,” Foster said. “They have this additional source of energy. It’s like a house during the holidays. I think a younger generation is beginning to shift the rigid stereotypes of what the workplace is and how it should look. Grey cubicles aren’t the only sorts of offices that we have to work in.”

ISSUE NINE — PRE-ORDER NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
