Thirty-five years ago ok, ok, five years, in human terms we set out to explore our relationship with dogs, not only as loyal friends and comrades at our heels, but also as creative muses—to champion the joy and offbeat energy that comes from being around and inspired by dogs. This issue sends a heartfelt thank you to all the photographers, artists, illustrators, and writers who trusted us, dived in, and brought us delight, grace, excitement, courage, wilderness, and wonder.
Their work not only reflects the bonds we share with our animal companions, it also celebrates their spirit. None of this would be possible without our unsuspecting four-legged counterparts full disclosure: they know , who sprinkle magic dust time and time again, and our readers, who embraced this kooky idea, rallied around us, and made this world theirs too.
We hope you enjoy it! We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. All this, and more, inside the covers. Get stuck in a treasure trove of canine delights for both you and your hound.
