I have five dogs which is not as many as Doris Day, who I hear has 25, but more than my friend Elizabeth Taylor once had. She just had two. On her beloved dog Sugar’s pet carrier, she would sometimes put a leather tag with the word “MINE” in capital letters. For dog lovers, that sounds right on.

I’ve been wanting to give my dogs a special gift, because I’m always traveling and photographing long hours and they sometimes don’t get to hang out with me as often as they’d like. Recently, Shinola asked me to work on a series of dog accessories (and soon-to-come accessories for cats), and I thought to myself that this was a perfect opportunity to make some unique gifts for my most loyal friends. We started with collars and leashes, dog beds, and chew toys—and we’re so excited with how they turned out that we’re eager to make more things.  I hope you’ll love them as much as we all do, and we’re sure your best friends will be proud to call them “MINE.” My dogs shop online, so check out shinola.com
