You’d be forgiven for mistaking the contents inside MiaCara’s new treat jar for human snacks. Designed to “seamlessly fit into many different homes,” the glossy porcelain container works all too well; the jar—and a matching dog bowl—look like they belong on the kitchen counter, anything in them to be eaten with hands, not paws.
Created by MiaCara in collaboration with Danish design studio Hans Thyge & Co., the Coppa range adheres to the time-honoured philosophy of ‘form follows function’. Both objects are fitted with a removable silicone base but for different reasons: the non-slip material keeps the bowl from sliding around on the floor while dogs dig in, and stops the jar from scratching surfaces when humans reach to treat their pup. The all-silicone lid keeps the dog treats crunchy and fresh (as they should be). A dreamy Scandinavian color palette adds aesthetic appeal.
MiaCara, who delights in problem solving, tells us they’re ever-innovating “to make the bowls even more versatile” and a Coppa double-feeder is coming soon.
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.
