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.

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.
