Short reminder: Two weeks left until Valentine's day!
Some people really think, that this date is only the clever idea of the florists, the perfumeries and the chocolate industry - but for me it's the day for »saying« how important someone is for you.
For all those who lost their heart to a dog, here are some selected postcards from talented and creative designers that are dedicated to us four-legged sweethearts.

All cards by »galleria mona« via felt & wire shop

Tired of being alone-card by »Nicola Clare« via Supermarket

Valentine Dog-print by »Jane Foster Designs« via Not-on-the-highstreet

Letterpress art-print by »tag team tompkins«

You & Me stationery set (set of 6 different animal-couples) by »ModCloth«

P.S. Don't forget to add some treats to your gift! As the saying goes: The way to a dog's heart is through its stomach.

Knit good

Today we had some snow here in the north of Germany. It's not unusual, but it was the first snow since november.
I don't know what to think of wearing stuff (as you already know), but my mistress always put on a bobble cap (in Germany you say "Pudelmütze" = "poodle cap" - what a degradation...) and some gloves these days.
To show your individual side while taking your dog for a walk, I would like to present some really unique DIY-gloves by »Studio Morran«.
I'm sure you've heard this name before - a few weeks ago I posted their stunning bookproject with lovely illustrations of artists all around the world.
But now, back to frostiness: If you have some spare time and you're up to knitting, these gloves are perfect for you.
And: Look closely - the dog on the pattern looks like me, yeah!

You can find the detailed knitting-instructions here.

It's no secret that women love shoes as well as cute little dogs. I found something at the web that kills two birds with one stone - look:

These lovely Chihuahua Mary-Janes-Shoes are made by Lindsay of »Em and Sprout« and are available in many different sizes. Her shop is BTW named by her two cats, that she really loves a lot.

Hope, that Lindsay someday will decide to sew a Terrier like me so that I'm getting the "shoeting-star" of my mistress....

How to spell a Labrador

It's no secret that we dogs cannot read a word (some of my colleagues even don't understand one, too....). But this was no obstacle for printmaker & illustrator Leslie Evans of »Sea Dog Press« to create an alphabet by using her Labrador-dog "Morgan".
The lovely print shows him during his daily routine in sleeping, relaxing and hanging around - and it shows impressively that we dogs are much more clever than it sometimes seems:

Hello again & happy new year my dear friends!
New Year's resolutions mostly mean slimming - even in my case. The cookies were too delicious and there were so many things that dropped down the dining table directly into my mouth....
But don't worry, I didn't only let grass grow under my feet during the past two weeks and also took the time to explore the internet for some new interesting things.
Because currently I often suffer from collywobbles, the following doormats speak from my heart:

Both available at Amazon:
»One bite«
»Two bites«
