I knew that my experience was going to be a good one right off of the bat! The gentleman who contacted me was helpful, professional and super kind.

I was offered a $50 gift card to purchase anything at all that I would like on the site, in exchange for my honest review of the site and the products that I purchased.

FROM PAWTINI:

Delivering puppy smiles is what we do here at Pawtini! We strive to supply merchandise of great quality for your loved family members. From comfortable beds and clothes to fun toys and treats, we have what you need for any size dog. Our low prices, friendly customer service and high-end quality products are only a few reasons why your dog will love Pawtini.com! 

I found the site incredibly easy to navigate and pricing is competitive. There are items for EVERY BUDGET! One fun thing is, as soon as you visit, a pop up window is displayed asking if you would like a free toy. When you make a purchase you are given a free toy. Mine was the item featured on the right in the photo below.  Isn’t it just adorable? Also, instead of a shopping cart you put your items in a SHOPPING BOWL!! (How cute is that??? Like a DOG BOWL!!!!)

One of the first items that I chose is on the left. It is the PATRIOTIC PLUSH DOG TOY HEART. I think it is adorable and I purchased it because Dakota has an OLD red, white and blue plush ball that he adores. It is in such ridiculous shape (not torn though), and it is his favorite toy. One day, it will go to the big toy heaven in the sky, so I wanted to replace it with another red, white and blue toy which I am sure will be one of his next favorites!

My only complaint about the site was that there were a few items listed that I wanted to purchase but they weren’t available. It turned out not to be a  problem because there is something that I found to be UNIQUE about Pawtini that will make me be a regular customer. They feature SPORTS ITEMS!!!  As of today 676 PRODUCTS WORTH OF SPORTS ITEMS FOR DOGS!!!!

Pawtini has sports items that doggies will DROOL OVER!!!

My husband and I are football and baseball freaks and I LOVE purchasing items for Dakota that feature our favorite teams!

The above says “apparel” but guess what? They have tug toys that feature different teams, (both college and pro),  such as the one I got for Dakota that features the Detroit Lions.

The toy is super well made and sturdy. It is the perfect size for a great game of tug-o-war!!

“Are you all ready for this????” For those of you with small, girly-girl dogs, they even have CHEERLEADER COSTUMES!! They are so adorable I thought I would die!

I had a field day browsing the various sports items and I know that that part of the website is going to be getting the most use from me! I was excited to purchase a DETROIT LIONS DOG FOOD BOWL for Dakota, that is just pawtastic!!!

Now, I happen to be a Cleveland Browns fan as well, but to appease my Detroit-born-and-raised husband, we are starting off with Detroit sports items for Dakota. Trust me, there will be Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians items added to Dakota’s collection, you can COUNT ON IT!

I give Pawtini 4-paws up! I couldn’t be happier with my items! If I hadn’t been though, Pawtini offers:

They also have a Customer Service tab where you can find answers to FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (such as accepted forms of payment, etc.)

I was so engrossed in the site trying to decide what to get, that I must have spent a good half hour (easy!!) there! It was so much fun poking around, I am sure that when you visit you will feel the same way!

GIVE-AWAY!! I am THRILLED because the kind gentleman at Pawtini has offered ONE OF MY READERS, who RESIDES IN THE U.S. A $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE to be used on the site, just like mine!! Entering is easy, just enter on the rafflecopter below and GOOD LUCK!

Fun Dog Plate by Three Sisters Plates: Enter to win your own customized plate!

I am a firm believer in Synchronicity.  

Synchronicity: from Wikipedia: is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, yet are experienced as occurring together in a meaningful manner.

Some months back  I was shopping at my local market and noticed a man wearing a Cleveland Browns cap. I live in Michigan and Cleveland happens to be my home town.  Always one to strike up a conversation with a stranger, whether they like it or not,  I approached the man and asked if he was from Cleveland. He told me no, but that his daughter lived there. I asked her name, which sounded familiar and the kind gentleman proceeded to phone her. I got on the phone and explained how I had just met her Dad, pleasantries were exchanged. It turned out she didn’t know who I thought she knew and that was that. I thanked the gentleman for calling her and we went on our way. Just a fun coincidence in a local grocery store,  nothing more. Or so I thought.

A month or so later I received this keepsake   for my birthday from my niece who has a knack of knowing the perfect gift to give to anyone for whatever occasion! It came from an Etsy shop called:Three Sisters Plates.

I couldn’t have been more delighted!  I spent so much time going through every photo,  each one stirring up memories of my deeply loved and greatly missed home town. I couldn’t wait to display this keepsake with  pride in my home.

I derived so much joy from this plate that it got me to thinking,  I wondered if the shop owner also did plates that featured dogs and I began searching. YES! She did!

I promptly ordered one for myself (along with a custom cat plate, which will be displayed on Cat Chat on March 22nd, along with another give-away!). At the same time I ordered, I contacted the shop owner (Sandie) and asked if she would be interested in holding a give-away for my readers. Through our conversation I learned that she was from Cleveland which of course, led me to start my interrogation. When she mentioned her last name, I asked some other questions and then came the SHOCKER. She said “Are you the same lady who met my Dad at the market some months ago?” I nearly DIED! Synchronicity at work! What were the odds of THIS happening?

It was  meant to be that I met Sandie’s father in the market, it was meant to be that I received one of her gorgeous, unique, handmade plates,  so that I may share these marvelous plates with you!

Here is the Personalized Plate that I ordered (and yes I BOUGHT it, along with the cat plate!) If you wish to purchase the Fun Dog Plate that is NOT personalized, click here

There are all sorts of dogs on this plate and if you look closely you will see some photos of Dakota in the mix! I just love it!! Here is a photo of it displayed in my home:

Isn’t Synchronicity the best??!

By meeting Sandie’s Dad at a random market in Michigan, and receiving MY Cleveland Browns sports plate as a birthday gift, I decided to purchase a dog and cat plate, which led to my asking if Sandie would agree to having a give-away for YOU, and she agreed! As she said in an email:  “after all, we’re practically related!”
