“I love shooting interiors because of the amount of control I have over the composition and light,” says photographer Sara Essex Bradley. “However, you throw in a dog, and there goes the control!” Having studied Fine Arts, Bradley approaches interiors photography using visual cues from painting or drawing. After 18 years snapping stunning homes, Bradley realised that she’d amassed a solid collection of gorgeous rooms with the family dog in the frame.
Compiling them all into a book seemed like the natural next step. In Bradley’s words, her book Dog Décor “offers a glimpse into home and family life from the perspective of the ambassador: the dog.” It turns out that this inspiring book isn’t just popular amongst dog lovers and design aficionados—kids love it too. “They love finding the dogs from page to page, and the writing is simple enough for young readers,” Bradley says.

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?

Harrison Ford has taken on a role that was portrayed in the past by Clark Gable, Charlton Heston, and Rutger Hauer before him: the character John Thornton in the latest cinematic adaptation of Jack London’s 1903 novel The Call of the Wild. John Thornton becomes a human companion to Buck, the big St Bernard-Scotch collie mix who’s the heart of the story. The two meet in Yukon, Canada during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, and head off on an adventure into the great unknown together. Interestingly, Buck was portrayed using motion capture by Terry Notary, who you might recognise from that dinner scene in 2017’s Palme d’Or winning film The Square. Watch The Call of the Wild on Google Play, iTunes, and more.
