What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Orvis’ Dog Festival

Laura Bott reports on Orvis hosting a dog friendly event at their Lower Regent Street store in London

 

On 14th September, the Orvis flagship store in London rolled out the green carpet for ‘dogs about town’ and their owners to celebrate the launch of its new dog department. Throughout the day guests were invited to join the ‘pawesome party’ which brought together dog brands, including The Dog Treat Company, Rokabone, Benyfit Natural and Snuffle Dog Beer.

 

Orvis’ inaugural dog-friendly event saw Instagram-famous dogs including Lola Zambuni and Marcel “Le Corgi” enjoying the plush Orvis memory foam dog beds. Perfect for both the town and country dog, this event was a fantastic opportunity to sample the best of pet-friendly products. Dogs of all breeds were particularly eager to make the most of the free tasty dog treats and irresistible dog beer. The top dog photo competition saw Chocolate Labrador, Jeff, win the award for ‘Orvis Dog of Month’ and his photo is now proudly displayed in store.

 

Guests and their pooches spent the evening shopping for fashionable leads and collars from Rokabone and testing out Orvis’ new ‘doggy spa’. In turn, each was presented for a photoshoot with canine photographer Ashley Timms.

 

There was a ‘pawsitively’ feel-good drinks reception where guests enjoyed canapés and their dogs enjoyed special treats. It was a perfect way to ‘pow-wow’ and a great celebration of man’s best friend. All left with their tails wagging.
