Whilst looking through the cutest pug pictures ever we also discovered these amazing high-speed photographs of dogs as they swim underwater. When I was a kid we had a border collie that used to love swimming (once on a holiday to North Wales he swam so far out we thought he'd drowned) so dogs and water was something I remember fondly, apart from when they shake themselves dry next to you.
Take a look at Seth Castel's amazing underwater dog photographs.
We were contacted by a customer we'll just name as Nick the other day wanting to know if we had any plans to produce a pug lamp. Our assumption was that Nick was a pug owner and we replied that we did have plans for a pug but not until next year.
In fact we'd already started on a pug but our dog lamps Archie and Pup along with our cat lamps Blake and Lottie had progressed a little faster and we were beginning to time out on getting our designs to Heico for manufacture.
Nick replied by sending us these photographs of the wonderful Trotter taken by photographer Sonya Yu. Take a look, they're simply amazing.
Archie, actually lots of Archie's have made an appearance on ITVs Top Dog Model hosted by Stacey Solomon and judged by fashion model Lilah Parsons, Hollywood dog agent Addison Witt with help from guest judge, Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashleigh.
Not so long ago we were approached by 12 Yard Productions - the production company behind Top Dog Model - who asked if they could have 20 Archie's to complete their set.
We're hoping to get some pictures soon but in the mean time take a look at Archie, our very own Top Dog Model:
The first sample of Lottie our new cat lamp has just returned from Germany. We're hoping to release Lottie by mid August. In the mean time here are the photographs. Do please leave a comment, we would love to know what you think of Lottie.
We heard from Chris & Laurant at Lifestyle Bazaar that Archie & Blake were proving popular at their Shoreditch store and on their webite. At time of writing, our dog lamp, Archie was on the home page of the site.
What's pleased and also surprised us a little is the popularity of our Tiger Cub lamp, Blake. We had assumed that Blake would have been mainly for children and Lifestyle Bazaar is the epitome of Shoreditch elegance and electic-chic.
If you do find yourself in the Shoreditch area, make sure to pop in. Lifestyle Bazaar is around the corner from the main Shoreditch under the Railway Bridge that crosses Kingsland Road. There's an equally eclectic dickensian style coffee shop next door, The Bridge. I'd happily spend all day sipping coffee in it's heavily theatrical surroundings but my daily espresso intake is a bit too much as it is.
