Dogs of Rare calendar still available!​

Now here's a shaggy dog story. Our friends at Microsoft’s Rare Studios are barking mad about their dogs and, if you ever visit Rare HQ, be sure to take some doggy treats with you because you’ll find a lot of canine pals in the offices.

At the tail end of 2018 the good folks responsible for Sea of Thieves, the incredibly popular game where you take on the role of a nautical ruff-ian, hit on the idea of producing a calendar featuring all the office dogs then selling it and donating the profits to SpecialEffect. It took a few days to shoot and it was hard work. But, after working doggedly, what Rare have produced is a thing of beauty with dogs of all shapes and sizes on their best behaviour and posing away for the pup-arazzi until they were dog-tired. 

Thanks so much to Rare and your doggies fur your amazing support. While we may be out of doggy puns, we’re full of gratitude for this brilliant gesture… as the Dalmatian said after dinner ‘Thank you. You really hit the spot’.

You can still get a Dogs of Rare calendar at a reduced price by clicking this link. Go on…fetch!
