New York frontiers-label Best Made caters for doers, makers, explorers, inventors, artists, and, now, your dog. As you browse wool fleece jackets, durable axes, and SWS patrol packs for yourself, your dog can sniff a range of long-lasting goodies: white and blue enamel bowls, rope toys, tug-on rope leashes, and super-comfy cushiony beds. One of our favourites is the Gfeller dog collar, manufactured in soft natural saddle skirting leather by the renowned fieldwork equipment brand of the same name. It’s doubly handsome when paired with its corresponding leash, leaving your dog at the ready to tackle any adventure in forest, hill, or field. Go fetch!
A heartfelt thank you to all the photographers, artists, illustrators, and writers who trusted us, dived in, and brought us delight, grace, excitement, courage, wilderness, and wonder over the last five years. Their work not only reflects the bonds we share with our animal companions, it also celebrates their spirit.
None of this would be possible without our four-legged counterparts who sprinkle magic dust time and time again, and our readers, who embraced this kooky idea, rallied around us, and made this world theirs too. With friends like these, who needs nine lives?

He may not have a statue in Central Park devoted to him like Balto does, but Togo was the unsung hero husky of the 1925 serum run to Nome, Alaska. Togo, a film starring Willem Dafoe, is here to tell his story. While Balto and his team ran the final leg of the run transporting diphtheria antitoxin to Nome, Togo led his team through the longest and most hazardous leg of the journey, covering 264 miles (Balto ran 55). He navigated his fellow sled dogs and their musher Leonhard Seppala (played by Dafoe) through white-out storms, over a mountain and across the perilous exposed ice of Norton Sound. You can watch Togo on Disney+.
