Portland, OR based photographer and cinematographer Ben Moon’s dog, Denali, stood by him through thick and through thin. When Denali passed away last year, Ben decided to pay tribute to their relationship by creating this beautiful video. So, grab a box of tissues and make sure that your dog is nearby, because I guarantee that you will need to give her a teary hug after watching.
Do you have a dog who would give his right paw to chase after a squirrel, a cat or a plastic shopping bag fluttering down the street? I do, his name is Wally, and Wally loves his Chase It Pet Toy. The Chase It is simple in concept: You hang onto the end of the pole and flip around the stuffie, which taps into the dog’s instinctual drive to chase small, fast-moving prey. The ensuing game is hilarious to watch (ever see a canine back-flip?) and physically exhausting for the pup.
Over the years I’ve imagined up a full and complex human life for my dog. There is something about his personality that screams socially awkward 45-year-old still living at home with Mom. I can’t help it and it cracks me up, so needless to say, I was pretty excited when a friend told me about FX’s newest series, Wilfred.
We are impressed and amused by the lengths this pup goes to convince his unwitting new pal to share his bag of chips. We have no trouble seeing any one of Bark dogs going to similar extents to "share" a snack.

Coming home a little earlier from nights out; waking up with the sun to get in that daily walk; adding a new vacuum to the top of your birthday wish list—things have a tendency to change when you bring a dog into your life. London based artist, John Dolan, was no exception to this rule. We recently read about Dolan and his dog, George, in an interview published by the Guardian earlier this month, and we were instantly enamored with the duo.
There is a buzz of excitement radiating through the San Francisco Bay Area—the annual Mavericks Invitational, a big wave surf contest held 20 miles south of the city, is a go! And it's happening this weekend!
It’s what all the cool dogs are doing! Tapping into a dog’s natural ability to smell and his inherent drive to hunt, Nose Work is a great sport for dogs of all shapes, sizes and temperaments. I’m taking Nose Work classes with my dog, Wally, and we are having a blast! Be sure to sniff out the article on K9 Nose Work in Bark’s summer issue. Here is a video of Wally searching for a bait bag filled with treats. Find it, Wally!
The air is crisp, the leaves are changing and the days are shorter—fall is here, and winter is right around the corner. This means two things: first, my dog Wally gets to bundle up in one of his many dapper sweaters; second, the sun sets well before we head out on our evening walk.

I don’t know about you, but this is the time of year when the short days and dreary weather begin get a little old, so this video couldn’t have hit my e-mail inbox at a better time—it is the perfect wintertime attitude adjustment. Leave it to the dogs to remind us that life is always fun, even with a bite in the air and snow on the ground!
