    Among the many national days that add a little frivolous fun to otherwise ordinary weekdays there was one in particular that caught our attention, not least because it celebrated an art form very close to our hearts - and eyes! - National Photograph Your Dog Day. 

    As proud pack parents, barely a day goes by without us whipping out our phones to snap whatever cute, goofy, funny, or kind thing our dogs are up to, and adding it to the 16,000 or so photos on our camera rolls. Some of us even go so far as having pet instagrams, and of course following other pets online is one of our favorite things to do! 

    The more we thought about it, it occurred to us that the pets we love to see most of all are the ones whose wise humans shop at King Duke’s - take a peek here for some of our own dogs and our pawsome clients’ dogs - so why not make it a thing, our thing, and why not do so right now! 

    Ladies and gentlemen, dogs and cats, we hereby announce the King Duke’s Pet Pageant* 🐩

    Whether yours is a mutt, a Westminster winner, a tiny kitten, or a pair of Persians, we want to see them! Send us your snaps and every month, the winning portrait will get a special King Duke’s prize package with which to spoil your photogenic pet!! What’s more, we’ll also post all the pics to the pack page of our website (say that fast 3 times!!) so you can admire fellow KD doggos and cats. That sound good? Good! 

    Simply email your photos to us at hello@kingdukes.com to be included. We truly can’t wait to see you! 📸 🤳🏾🐱🐶

    *poodles are pageant-y; they just are.

    Horoscopes - They're Not Just For Humans!

    One of the joys of pet parenthood is relative certainty. That your pet will know the precise time(s) of day food must be served and will alert you when that time is NOW. That your pet will be Very Pleased Indeed when you get home, and by contrast, will Simply Not Get why you need to go out without her. All of that said, just as uncertainty exists for humans, so it exists for pets, and so we consulted with astrologer to the stars, Mystic Mog, who read the charts for the upcoming month...

    The Dog Star is a popular name for Sirius, which is both the brightest star in the sky and one of the stars in the constellation of Canis Major, or Big Dog*. But how dd it come to be known as such? And what do the animals of the night sky teach us about the millions of humans who have gazed upon them before us? All this and more as we head AD ASTRA!

    HAPPY NATIONAL PUPPY DAY!

    As a rule, we are National Day enthusiasts regardless of the occasion. But every once in a while a National Day comes about that fills us with the joy and enthusiasm of 100 puppies which is an apt metaphor since that day is in fact today: National Puppy Day! As you can imagine, the level of excitement at KDHQ is turned up to 11, and accordingly we’ve been gathering not only a selection of puppy merch at 10% off this weekend, March 23rd & 24th, with code PUPPYLOVE24, but also some super fun puppy facts that prove that alongside National Kitten Day (July 10th, mark your calendars!), this is the best day of all the days.
    The Enduring Power of Pets!

    The Enduring Power of Pets!

    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...
