The Enduring Power of Pets!

The Enduring Power of Pets!

February 26, 2024 5 min read

There are various means by which eras are defined: the invention of the wheel, the start of the Renaissance, and above all, Taylor Swift albums, tours - so much so the current one is literally named Eras - and romantic partners. Basically, enough things change enough and that means we're in a new phase. Having said that, we have been thinking recently of a contrast: animals and pets are consistently dominant in pop culture - no changes please and thank you - and every single era celebrates and records them. In our current human-centric age, this seems at first, ahem, glance odd, but as we have previously noted, there are 6.5 BILLION cat pictures on the internet which is only slight fewer than the number of selfies on Kylie Jenner's phone (7 billion, allegedly). In our view, this is as it should be, but it set us thinking: why? Why are animals more enduring across cultures, eras, continents, and content than anything else? Step this way...

As chroniclers of canine culture - if you're repping the Library of Congress, we have this column's complete archive ready to go - we are constantly on the lookout for what’s fresh and interesting in the doggosphere. New Year; new vibes: what's the skinny? Well, lately, the extent and variety of canine clothing has been a source of both fascination and delight: from the quotidian to the ceremonial, the warm winter jacket to the full fig, dogs all over America are serving lewks. Whether your dog is a homebody or a hiker, a big galloping girl or a little lap boy, we’re sure you’ll find fits to fit among our winter wear collection. Yes, people, it's dogs, but make it fashion. Catwalk this way! 💀

December 29, 2023 4 min read

At some point, the food, the family, the gifts, and the fun turns into the forgetting of your own name, and when that point hits, it’s Quiz Time. A gentle first step on the path towards sentience and sanity, and a comforting reminder of your ability to read things besides texts, refund policies, and cooking instructions. Our quiz of course has the added benefit of being composed entirely from animal magic, and we all know that is the very best kind...

Perhaps you that many ancient cultures held cats to be sacred creatures invested with mystical powers. Perhaps you have gazed upon the Great Sphinx of Giza, or spotted a Mountain Lion in the wild. But do you know the origins of cats' nine lives? Or what cats contributed to New Orleans in the roaring twenties? Or how cats more or less single-pawdly won WW2? Come with us on a journey in the catosphere, where feline mysteries unfold...

Go Fourth, Friends, it’s Road Trip Part Two: We, the Dogs!

June 30, 2023 4 min read

Besides the requisite cook outs, coolers, concerts, and the crackle of fireworks, 4th of July is a celebration of the end of one journey and the start of another, marking as it does independence from the rule of King George III and the beginning of an ongoing experiment in democratic self government. It marks the first steps on the road that brought us where we are today, a road which has no end but handy directions provided by the Constitution. Thus, it is fitting that in anticipation of a great 4th of July weekend, we bring you part 2 of our King* Duke’s Guide to Summer Road Trips. Let’s go!

No matter how small your pup or how large your pack, there is nothing better than a road trip! To help make sure you end up on the happy hound highway rather than the Boulevard of Broken dog Dreams (shout out to my fellow Gen Xers!), we have a ton of tips; so many in fact, that this guide is a two parter! In this first installment, we’ll cover what you need for the car and the trail, and next time we’ll do all you need for everything else, including eating, drinking, and sleeping.

Pet Parenting: Tips for a Health Emergency

Pet Parenting: Tips for a Health Emergency

May 03, 2023 6 min read

Every once in a while, life and art collide in unexpected ways. As I prepared to write about pet health and wellness, I found myself in the middle of a health situation with the redoubtable Lucy the Dachshund. This is not the time for cliff hangers; the green shoots of recovery are starting to show themselves and the patient is happily snoozing next to me! The experience has taught me some valuable things, and we share them here in the hopes that should need them, you may have their benefit.

Working Canine to 5!

March 29, 2023 5 min read

As long as humans have lived with dogs, dogs have worked with humans, and this brings us to today’s topic: working dogs. Earlier this month, it was K-9 Veterans’ Day, and that set us thinking about the many ways dogs assist and support humans, formally or informally, and what in the world we would do without their love and help.

Truthfully there is no topic about which we do not love to write, provided dogs (or cats) are involved, and indeed we can find a way to involve them in literally anything, so really, who could ask for more? But sometimes we arrive at a topic so perfect, so magically compelling, that the pleasure is doubled, tripled even, and this is where we find ourselves today. Yes friends, we are going to talk about food! Mmmmmmmmm. Food!

January 31, 2023 5 min read

To mark the start of the year of the Rabbit, and all the opportunities it creates, we have some ideas and suggestions for our fellow canine Stans and their four-legged friends. There are at least 90 million dogs in the USA, and that means 90 million opportunities for dogs and their humans to win at life in 2023. For the sake of your sanity, and ours, we won’t list all 90 million, but a few of our favorites that we think you’ll enjoy!

The Super Seasonal End of Summer Meets September Smash Up!

The Super Seasonal End of Summer Meets September Smash Up!

August 31, 2022 4 min read

Is there a more confounding time of year than summer’s end? Allow us to elaborate; we love the summer! Long days, sunshine, shorts & t-shirts, cold beers. But we love the fall! Crunchy leaves, cool evenings, sweater weather (we long for it!) and pumpkin spice beers. Sigh. It occurs to us that the answer is to create a sort of mash up of summer and September, a smash up, if you like, the best of both worlds. Now this is a pilot scheme, so we hope you’ll cut us some slack, but here goes: the King Duke’s Super Seasonal September Smash Up! AKA, six ideas for when summer meets fall…

Heroic Dogs of History, or, a call for Mount Barkmore!

July 28, 2022 6 min read

Dogs are truly exceptional creatures who have saved lives, advanced science, and generally been all round awesome. In fact, such is the contribution of dogs to the success of humankind that we are minded to propose a canine Mount Rushmore dedicated to the hound heroes of history. It’s a crowded field since there have been many, many brilliant dogs, but if there were to be a Mount Barkmore - and we think there should be! - these are the four furry faces we would most like to see carved thereon. Woof!

Spring is Most Definitely Our Thing!

March 26, 2022 5 min read

Our human selves are thrilled to see daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths, and shop for delicious spring veggies, and if we have to risk getting soaked in the process, so be it. Similarly, the hounds in our lives are full of the joys of, yes, spring, finding the new smells it brings to be far more appealing than, say, seasonal artichokes, which Lucy in particular rejects as “utterly confounding” despite their many health benefits. But enough about us, this is about you! Accordingly, we have scoured the earth for the things you need to enjoy all that spring has to offer so you and your pets can make the most of it, rain or shine.
