The Weekly Dig: Issue 12 ☞ 100 dog illustrations, a rhinestone cowboy, and our new training school.
Hi LAY LO fam,
I hope you’re enjoying the weekend snuggled up somewhere near a fire. We just got back from Sea Ranch, CA doing exactly that.
In addition to the normal round up, I wanted to share something *new* we’re working on. 
Over the last few months, we’ve been quietly building Homeschool, a dog training and lifestyle design service for modern pet parents.
For 8 weeks you'll work 1:1 with talented interior designers and certified dog trainers to solve whatever challenges you're facing at home with your pet.
We’re looking for 10 people with a young pup interested in being part of our inaugural (beta) class at a significant discount in return for honest feedback. You can learn more about it here and reply directly to this email if you're interested.

100 Dogs in 100 Days

We always love the work of Kelsey Thueneman. She recently challenged herself to illustrate 100 dogs in 100 days. Follow along here.

Business we're loving

The phrase they don’t make things like they used to would not be applicable here. This is the oldest pastel makers in the world, since 1720. We love seeing heritage businesses continue to be successful.

The Rhinestone Cowboy

 The original Rhinestone Cowboy, Loy Allen Bowlin - An outsider artist from Mississippi who spent his years bejeweling just about anything. Talk about pizzazz.

Flower interpretations

Artist Harriet Parry brings a new perspective to floral arrangements through her interpretations of art and photos through flowers. This got us to rethink that dying arrangement on our kitchen table.

A photographer we love

This photo of the Standard Hotel Boom Boom Room photographed by Adrian Gout looks like it’s dripping in gold. All of his work is truly remarkable.
