Dog City & Co. is an animal-passionate brand that sells beautiful gifts for proud pet owners.  As you can tell from the photos above, they have a wide variety of products, from mugs and t-shirts, to iPhone cases, wall prints and totes.  All of which are eco-friendly, and 100% made in the USA.

I was recently fortunate enough to try out one of their text art totes, which Vader and Vixen are showing off in the photos above, and let me tell you, I loved it!

First of all, the graphic is super creative.  I of course opted for the Great Dane design, which features breed specific descriptive words that are sized and rotated to make up the shape of a Great Dane.  It was really neat to read through all of the words, even down to the paws and tail.  They were all perfectly characteristic of my dogs.  If you look through the Dog City & Co. website you can see there are several other amazing options available, including other dog breeds, rabbits, cats, and even horses.

I also thought the tote was especially great because it’s so large.  Just look at it next to my big dogs.  You can definitely tell it’s capable of carrying quite a bit, which makes it very versatile.  I could use it to carry my belongings for a day at the beach, or as a reusable grocery bag for when I go shopping, or as my plus 1 carry-on bag for when I travel on planes.  All the while, I would be showing off my Great Dane pride 🙂

To top it all off, a portion of every sale at Dog City & Co. is donated to animal rescue organizations!  Talk about a great way to give back.  And they can also do custom designs, so even if you don’t see your breed just ask!  All in all I think Dog City and Co. has amazing products that any pet lover would enjoy!

I stumbled upon this lovely bronze paw print doorbell the other day while pursuing around Etsy, and instantly fell in love.  I just can’t get over how perfect it would look next to my red front door.  I’m definitely adding it to my home improvement wish list.

Origami Doggy Beds

October 5, 2012

Have you checked out all of the amazing pet products from Unleashed Life?  I can’t get enough! Like this Origami Dog Bed- it totally rocks! Unleashed Life informed me that they have a very talented artist who hand drew each folded paper dog, then they made a pattern and turned it into a fabric print.  I think it turned out fantastic.  I definitely want to get one (or two) for my pups.
