A Gift to Cherish! Personalized Pet Plaques made by Treasured Friends! Enter to Win!

I was delighted and honored when I was contacted by Treasured Friends, asking if I would be interested in having a custom plaque made of Dakota in exchange for my honest review.

There is nothing I “treasure” more than items that are personalized and unique! Having my handsome Sheltie featured on a plaque that I will cherish for a lifetime, means the world to me!

About Treasured Friends—(from their website)

We understand the special bond between people and their animal companions. That’s why we create every personalized pet plaque individually, making each one as unique as the pet who inspired it. So whether you’re looking for a gift for a friend, a keepsake to celebrate the pet sitting next to you, or a memorial for one who has passed on, you can rest assured that your piece – like the pet it honors – is one-of-a-kind and will be cherished for years to come.


The plaque that I chose to have made was the Small Keepsake Plaque .

“Each plaque is made of elegant yet durable porcelain and printed with fade-resistant UV inks, ensuring your piece stays beautiful for years to come. In addition, it arrives ready to hang or display either in your home or in a sheltered area outside.

All plaques are customizable with a photo, name and optional date. Select designs may also be customized with up to 40 characters of text.”

(I chose the 12 inch by 6 inch portrait size). The process was super easy!  The ordering page has easy to understand steps. I submitted a photo (high-resolution photos are best, mine wasn’t high-resolution but my friend at Treasured Friends turned my less-than-perfect photo into a gorgeous piece of art using the “painterly” effect.) I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!

It wasn’t long until I received my proof…look at how incredibly GORGEOUS this is!

Once I gave my approval it wasn’t long before my plaque arrived!

I think that packaging is often as important as the product, and the packaging of my plaque did NOT disappoint! My plaque arrived wrapped with love, care and attention to detail.

When I opened it, I SQUEALED with delight! Look at my incredibly BEAUTIFUL PLAQUE!

Here is another shot from a different location (I still am deciding where I will put it), I am either going to buy a stand for the back or a hook to hang it in our dining room I believe.

  5. What a beautiful plaque of Dakota. I like that they also do plaque in memory of those we’ve lost. A plaque for Brisco would be perfect. It will be a year ago on the 21st of this month that we lost him.

  12. Joan N says:

    My beloved boy, Frankie, recently went over the rainbow bridge after a short but deadly illness. This plaque would look pawsitivly beautiful next to his urn. Not a day has gone by since his passing that I do not shed tears for him and long to kiss his beautiful nose one more time.

    • Dakota says:

      I am so terribly sorry ((((hugs))) and wishing you good luck!

    How could they not make any shot of Dakota look good. Really he’s photoghenci.

    I am wondering if they can do a shot of the Bailey and Katy together. It would be hard to pick just one when they are always together.

  30. KateV says:

    I think I would choose Bugsy. That is my Maine Coon Cat. However, if I can get a picture from her, I would love to get this done for my friend’s dog for her birthday next month! Can I let you know for sure if I am lucky enough to win?

    • Dakota says:

      Wishing you the best of luck! Of course I will notify whomever is the lucky winner!

  36. Darci says:

    Lovely plaque! The hard part for me would be deciding which of my Shelties would be the subject. Probably my little blue boy, Griffin. I’m completely smitten with him. 🙂

  37. Jan K says:

    Oh boy, it’s tough to choose who I would do one for! But I think it would be Kobi, our beagle who passed on back in February. That would be a wonderful keepsake of him.
    Yours of Dakota is awesome, I love it!

  38. That plaque is really cool!!!! Love that pick of Dakota!!!! Have a wonderful week!!!!

  39. Dianne says:

    The personalized plaque is gorgeous! In the previous 2 years, all of our senior pups have passed on. This would be a wonderful way to memorialize them. Thanks for the chance.

    • Dakota says:

      Thanks! I think so too! I am so sorry about your losses 🙁 Best of luck!

  40. Dianne says:

    Per the “leave a comment of your dog’s name-> I would have to choose among Dasiy, Brownie and Bud. Daisy was my heart dog. We also recently adopted a 5 yo Border Collie, so I could choose Sadie as well. Tough decision! Beautiful plaques!

  41. Robyn Bellefleur says:

    My dog Moobie!

  42. Carrie says:

    Aww!! These look great, they would make a lovely gift… that picture of Dakota is just the cutest!! We have our paws crossed for the winner of your competition!

  44. Linda Szymoniak says:

    I’m going to have trouble picking just one furbaby for this, but I think I’ll have to flip a coin between my dog, Misty (she died in 1997 at 16 years old) and my cat Anya (she passed in 2006, just short of her 20th birthday). I’d love to eventually get one for each of my furbabies, both past and present.

  45. I think it would have to be Scout. Dakota’s plaque turned out perfect! I love it!

    My daughter has 3 dogs so I’d get a picture of all three of them on it. These are so awesome! Thank you for the great giveaway 🙂

  49. Stacey says:

    What a great keepsake of Dakota … so nice. I love the way it turned out. I am nuts about pictures of my dogs and these are very nice. I like that they are made of porcelain and durable yet very elegant looking. Thanks for another wonderful contest 🙂
