A Valentine’s Day Give-Away! Win a Luxury Dog Scarf from “Oh Tiny Heart” !

Hi and Happy Valentine’s Day all!! A few weeks ago I was excited to be contacted by a wonderful company that “makes and sells handcrafted luxury accessories for pooches from rare and fine materials you can’t find  anywhere else.”

I thought with today being Valentine’s Day, it couldn’t be more perfect  than to feature this company that I now “heart” on this special day of love!!! Why not treat your special dog to a luxury dog scarf from:

“Oh Tiny Heart”

 

THE OH TINY HEART STORY:

Launched on September 23, 2016 from our small San Francisco apartment, our handcrafted accessories combine our love of chic design with the comfortable and stylish fabrics and materials we love to wear ourselves. If we wouldn’t wear it, why should our pets?

We hope you come to love Oh Tiny Heart as much as we love the little pooch who started it all.

The beautifully wrapped package that I received for Dakota

WHY THEY STARTED:

We started Oh Tiny Heart after adopting our little fur baby, Mylo. When we first brought Mylo home, we found ourselves unable to stop shopping for things we thought he’d like — treats, toys, accessories — you name it! When we couldn’t seem to find accessories for him that we absolutely loved (we’re picky!), we decided to make our own.

HOW THEY STARTED:

Determined to create accessories we weren’t embarrassed to let Mylo wear, we rolled up our sleeves, purchased a sewing machine, a few bundles of thread, and began chopping up our old clothing. Sewing with discarded stretchy knits and delicate cottons forced us to master difficult fabrics right off the bat, setting the tone for the types of materials we’d end up working with most.

When we finally created an accessory we were proud of, we posted a picture of Mylo modeling our creation on Instagram, and comments demanding we sell our pieces started pouring in from friends and followers. That’s when we knew we had to open our own shop.

While we are still very much a mom and pop pet shop handcrafting accessories from our much-too-tiny San Francisco apartment, we feel our family has grown so much larger thanks to the amazingly supportive customers we are lucky enough to have.

We’d love for you to take a look at what we have:

The Robin Scarf is the scarf that I selected for Dakota to try.  It is from the Oh Tiny Heart Signature Collection. (There is also a Gateway Collection and Rare Collection). It is super soft, light as a feather, just beautiful, so beautiful, that I want to wear it, but Dakota insisted that I let HIM wear it! Dakota doesn’t always wear scarves or bandanas unless he has just returned from being groomed, so at first he wasn’t quite sure what to make of it:

The Robin scarf is a  royal blue beautiful sweater knit scarf. It’s super cozy to the touch, the fabric is super snuggly!!! This scarf is completely unlike any other scarf I ever put on Dakota. It’s so luxurious!! Once I let him know just how handsome he looked in this scarf he allowed me to take another photo:

“What I put up with for a product review! Mom I am NOT a girl Sheltie, I am a BOY!!! But…this would look pretty on a female Sheltie as a cute hat, don’t you agree?”

 

I couldn’t be happier with Dakota’s scarf and am excited for you to check out all that Oh Tiny Heart has to offer! They also have Collars and Leashes!!!

Ok, I couldn’t resist and HAD to put the scarf on Cody too….he was a little less thrilled than I was:

Don’t let Cody’s expression deter you, remember, he IS a cat after all!!!!

Help Us Celebrate Dakota’s Birthday With a World-Wide Give-Away From Crunchkins!!

crunchkins happy birthday

Today is a special day indeed!

Today is Dakota’s 7th birthday!!

happy birthday dakota 2014

I am having an incredibly hard time wrapping my head around the fact that he is seven. Where has the time gone? I remember the day he joined our family as if it was just yesterday. He has added fun, love, craziness, and YES, NOISE, (but in a good way), the likes of which I could have never imagined!

The day Dakota joined our family, he fulfilled my childhood wish of having a Sheltie of my own!

crunchkins i love my sheltie

I am especially happy

to have our friends at Crunchkins

sharing this most special day with us!

I bet you are wondering, “What are Crunchkins?” Well, I’m glad you asked!! Do you see the photos above: (Happy Birthday and I Love My Sheltie)?  Are they not the CUTEST cards EVER?! Well those are just TWO of the TONS of CARDS FOR DOGS that are made out of SAFE, PRESSED RAWHIDE!!

From the Crunchkins website:

The Crunchkins Tale…

It all started with a postcard… While bustling through another busy day at my Veterinary Hospital, I saw a kennel assistant giving treats and reading a postcard to a dog we were boarding.

“Hello Goldie,” she read aloud. Wish you were here! Mickey & Minnie say Hi.”  I chuckled and thought, “The dog doesn’t care about that paper card.”  

That’s when it struck me – there should be a product that has meaning to both humans and animals. I decided to design a greeting card that people could send and pets could enjoy.

Crunchkins was launched in 2001, offering safe, fun, cute and affordable treats for pets and the people who love them.  As a veterinarian, pet health & safety has always been my top priority. Crunch Cards are made from rawhide – carefully pressed and artfully decorated.  From Christmas to Birthdays or “Just BePaws,” each greeting and design is rendered in non-toxic inks, making the card completely edible!

I hope the special pet in your life takes a bite out of a Crunch Card today!

Crunchkins has a VAST assortment of cards  where you can:

Shop by Pet  (they even have CAT CARDS!)

 ABOUT CLOUD STAR:

For more than a decade Cloud Star has been producing all natural and wholesome products for dogs, even those with allergies.

The company got its start in 1999 when Jennifer Melton and Brennan Johnson adopted their dog Samantha.  She was a picky eater, and because they could not find a commercially available treat to satisfy her finicky palate and yield to her allergies, they ended up baking their own.  When they whipped up a batch of the same low allergen dog treats that they had been making for a local animal shelter fundraiser, the treats were a huge hit and people started calling wanting more.

P.L.A.Y. Launches New Line of Designer Lounge Beds Innovative Beds Provide Pet Owners Four Different Looks in Just One Product

From time to time my Mom and I will feature a product that we didn’t receive to test/review.  Mom met a nice man from P.L.A.Y.  (Pet Lifestyle And You),  when she was at the BlogPaws pet blogger conference this past August.  Mom was impressed with P.L.A.Y.’s designer lounge beds for dogs, so I agreed to let her post them on my blog.

With the holidays approaching Mom thought this would make a nice gift idea for the special doggies in YOUR life!

Each bed is crafted with high quality,  furniture-grade materials including velvet and micro-suede.

Each Lounge Bed is unique in that they feature a reversible center pillow along with a flip-able exterior; providing pet owners four different looks in just one product.

You can read more about the Lounge Beds by clicking here

To learn about P.L.A.Y. click here

 

We were not compensated for this blog post. Since we did not receive the lounge bed to test/review.  This  is NOT  a review.  This  is a product feature since Mom liked the bed and thought you might be interested in seeing it.

If you buy one, please let us know!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
