There are no words to describe how much I love dogs and animals. There really aren’t! And every time I read a report about animal neglect or hear about the horrific conditions that so many lovely dogs and animals have to endure every day all over the world, my heart collapses. I feel crushed and hopelessly ineffectual because often times animal welfare issues seem too big for one person to take on and solve alone. (more…)

The the promise of Valentine’s Day on the horizon some say that love is now officially in the air. Of course, as devoted dog parents, we all know that love is in the air constantly when you have a wet nose in your house who is always on the ready to sniff it out!
To celebrate our beloved pupsters Pawsh has rounded up 10 of our favourite minimalist dog typography prints for your home decor this season. They seriously go with every style of home decor (and might make a cute Valentine’s Day gift too for the dog lover in your life!)
DOG PRINT #1: “ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE (AND A DOG)” by SimpleSerene on Etsy.
Because it’s true! Ask anyone who loves their dog and they will tell you that you need very little else in life to be perfectly content. Evenings spent at home are suddenly cozier, walks through your neighbourhood are more lively and day to day activities are all the brighter when you have a dog by your side. This sweet little print is a lovely reminder of that!
DOG PRINT #2: “DOG LOVER” by Pawsh Magazine
Because if we HAD to choose one label for ourselves, this would be it! This sleek contemporary print (created by yours truly) is like a badge to display proudly in your home or at the office! Can we get a whoop, whoop?
DOG PRINT #3: “MUST LOVE DOGS” by TinaBlueShoes on Etsy
Because… you must! Especially if you want to date or do the whole relationship thing. Diane Lane had it right all along!
DOG PRINT #4: “LET’S STICK TOGETHER” by Sophie Corrigan
Because the sentiment is oh-so true and this print would be so stinking cute to gift to a best friend, sibling or significant other!
DOG PRINT #5: “BREED CALLIGRAPHY PORTRAITS” by BellePapiers on Etsy
How beautiful is this unique calligraphy print? The scripted words highlight your favourite breed’s best qualities in a gorgeous style that then brings the dog’s profile to life! Absolutely gorgeous!
DOG PRINT #6: “TEA AND SLIPPERS AND THE DOG” by Pawsh Magazine
You know when Julie Andrews sings about her favourite things in The Sound of Music? Well this print is like that for us and highlights three of our all time favourite things! I mean how can you not love this perfect trio? Ideal for hanging in the bedroom or reading nook
DOG PRINT #7: “MY DOG IS COOLER THAN YOUR DOG” by LuciusArt on Etsy
Because it’s funny and a little friendly competition never hurt anyone. (Of course, we love ALL dogs.)
DOG PRINT #8: “I LOVE YOU A LOT BUT…” by Faye Moorhouse Illustration
Because it’s true (even if some of us won’t say it out loud!)
DOG PRINT #9: “BE THE PERSON YOUR DOG…” by TheInspiringType on Etsy
Because we should all strive for this and this cute print would serve as a friendly reminder hanging by the front door.
DOG PRINT #10: (OPENING IMAGE) “YOU, ME & THE DOG” by PeachesPrintsEtc on Etsy
Because a dog is truly part of the family and this sophisticated print is too pretty not to want!

“My favourite part of my experience was how comfortable Laura made me feel. She took lots of shots from different angles and positions she made the experience very relaxing enabling me to feel comfortable in front of her camera. She captured me very well and gave me a variety of photos to use for different occasions. My main objective for this head shot session was to connect all my business media with the same look by giving a few options and positions I am able to achieve my goal.” ~Lori Schuett, Innovative Interiors ~
This darling little nugget (a returning client) visited Pawsh Studio for a truly sweet Christmas photo session a few weekends ago. The concept we cooked up was ‘waiting for Santa’ complete with milk and… somehow the cookies disappeared! Here are a few of the results from this sweet photo session if you’re interested.
