Canine Culture

Welcome to Friday everyone, CEO Olivia here. Today I’ve sniffed out the work of artist Ed Hofer. He is an award winning artist who has 25 years experience doing illustrations & design work for corporations worldwide. Mr. Hofer has donated some of his artwork to help raise thousands of dollars for local & national animal rescues & charities. He lives with his wife in North Carolina. That’s pawsome!

From all of us at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs, have yourselves a pawsome weekend.

Dog People by Sandra Muller

Canine Culture

Welcome to Friday everyone, CEO Olivia here. “Dog People“, is a photography book by Dutch artist Sandra Muller. In it are 83 wooftastic dog portraits – from a purebred Standard Schnauzer to a “street mutt” – & many “human” characters. She describes the book as a thought experiment: what kind of person would my dog be?

Sandra Muller bought her first SLR camera at age 14. She has been an animal lover since childhood – from guinea pigs to her aunt’s dog, with whom she spent entire summer vacations. Today, she is the proud huMom of Maja, the “most beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog mix in the world”. She specializes in portraits of both people & good dogs. She tries to capture the unique personality of each of her subjects, be they two-legged or four-legged.

Have a look at a sampling of the pawsome portraits from her book.

Have a wooftastic weekend.

Time For A Good Dog Tune

Canine Culture

Welcome to Friday. It’s been brutally cold here this week at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs. That means we’ve been staying inside for the most part. We’re all getting a little stir crazy. So I thought maybe we could get up & dance to some music. I sniffed out this song by Toronto artist Jane Siberry. Apparently, everything reminds her of her dog.

Stay warm everyone.
