The packaging is so impressive we almost don’t need to know what’s inside. Aesthetically, The Pet Grocer products combine the modernist ’toon simplicity of Parisian dog duo Caperino&Peperone with the clean aesthetic of fellow Melbourne natives Aesop.
Inside, the products are pretty special too. The brand feverishly—possibly obsessively—seeks out healthy, sustainable, and ethical treats for cats and dogs by using dehydration methods that maintain the nutrients and integrity of raw produce. This process may be beyond the comprehension of you and your dog, but let’s face it—lots of dogs will gnaw on just about anything—table leg, old socks, Frisbee—so you might as well give them the best thing for their chewing efforts. Popular products include kangaroo heart, whole school fish, lamb lung, duck feet, and bully sticks. Once your pet’s had their nutritional treat, The Pet Grocer sells superior soaps to get their outsides all scrubbed up too.

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.
