OUTFOXED

For the world’s dogs, the global move to working from home was a dream come true. But for owners, we had far more time to sit and wonder, ‘is my dog bored?’ Curled under our desks, cutting laps of the living room, sniffing already-sniffed corners of the couch—we watched their every move, and they ours. Thankfully, MiaCara offers reprieve for both parties by way of a new boredom-banishing toy, Volpe.

Designed by Danish studio Hans Thyge & Co, Volpe takes licking mats into stylish new territory. With its minimalist fox shape, Volpe’s curved edges are designed to challenge and entertain your animal—a tasty change of pace in their typical day. Available in three colours and two surface textures, Volpe invites varied licking experiences known to improve concentration and reduce stress. The toy’s shallow grooves work well with almost anything your dog finds delicious: raw, wet or dry food, as well as yogurt, purees and treats you can wedge in its lattice or paste across its surface. Designed to complement MiaCara’s discerning doggy dinnerware—and, well, everything in the brand’s famously fashionable line of pet accessories—Volpe offers a reliable source of distraction for your dog – and for you; if, like us, you’re easily hypnotised by the sight of your four-legged friend having fun.

DOG-FRIENDLY: TAKE THE LEAD

We are thrilled to introduce Dog-Friendly, a collection of city guides for dog-loving people, created together with our long-time contributor, photographer Winnie Au, and fellow enthusiasts, indie publisher Hoxton Mini Press. We are currently raising funds to finance all original content, to launch the collection with London and New York, and to get tails wagging for more cities to come. You can support the project here.

PACK OF DOGS

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
