Etched In My Heart

Etched In My Heart offers pet lovers a wide variety of personalized gifts. They were nice enough to send us personalized frames for our dog and bird. Not only are they unique, but the frames are high quality too. We were also impressed at how quickly they arrived, and the packaging.

Etched In My Heart

Another thing we love about Etched In My Heart is that they donate part of their proceeds to The PetSave Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Bona Tucker in June 2000 as a rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption resource for domestic rabbits, cats and dogs. You can learn more (and see some adorable photos of the rescue at work) by clicking here.

Etched In My Heart was founded by Bob Tucker in 2007 based upon the need to provide pet lovers a custom gift or personalized frame that have beautiful designs specific to dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and birds. We loved that they included animals beyond just dogs and cats. As a bird owner we are always excited to find gifts that celebrate birds.

They offer a wide variety of pet lovers gifts and pet memorial gifts that you, many of which are one-of-a-kind designs that you will find nowhere else. Be sure to have a look around their website!

Dogs love getting mail too! #BarkBoxGifts!

BarkBox Logo


Baby is a very picky girl, so sometimes finding a treat that she will love is hard. Enter the BarkBox! Each month you can surprise your furry friend with new treats and toys from this awesome subscription box for dogs! Baby’s BarkBox arrived on her birthday, and somehow she knew right away that the package was for her!


Action shot!
Action shot!

We loved what came in our first BarkBox. The toy was a huge success, Baby was running around with it all day long, and she even tasted some of the treats (this friends, is saying a lot). Besides being filled with great items, we felt great about this dog box because the company donates 10% of proceeds on each box to animal welfare organizations!


Every month, Scout, the head dog at BarkBox, picks out four to six treats, toys and hygiene products to send to your dog. All their products are sourced in the United States, Canada, South America and New Zealand. They never send products that they don’t feel comfortable giving their own dogs. They don’t send rawhide or anything that’s been processed with formaldehyde. They are trying to get products with minimal processing and are moving towards limited and single ingredient treats. We love that!

BarkBox Box

We also love that BarkBox customizes the boxes to fit different sized dogs. We got the small dog box, and it was a great fit for our girl. What was in our box:

  • Pet Lifestyle And You (P.L.A.Y) We were thrilled to find an item from P.L.A.Y in our BarkBox! The P.L.A.Y zucchini toy was a big hit!
  • N-Bone Always nice when something can clean and freshen dog breath! The all-natural Pearly Whites chew bone is wheat-, corn- and soy-free.
  • Bocce’s Bakery Baby wasn’t sure what to make of the Truffle Mac & Cheese delights! The truffle was a very new flavor for her, and this was a new item that BarkBox introduced to us.
  • Happy Howie’s Happy Howie’s treats are all-natural, and convenient. Break them into tiny-sized training portions for a real treat.
  • Etta Says The 7-inch Crunchy Deer Chew is a natural way to keep your pup busy. Great for dogs with allergies.

BarkBox Sizes include:

  • Small & Cute (0-20 lbs)
  • Just Right (20-50 lbs)
  • Big & Bold (50+ lbs)

They also offer a range of plan lengths:

  • 1 month – $29
  • 3 months – $72 ($24 per month – save over 17%)
  • 6 months – $114 ($19 per month – save over 34%)

Get your pet ready for the holidays with PetSmart!

Friends, PetSmart has some seriously cute holiday goodies for your pet. And it’s not just the dogs and cats that get treats, they even have things for your aquarium, and a Santa Suit for guinea pigs! Baby got a package full of Christmas fun from PetSmart recently, and can’t wait to share them all with you! We will even be hosting a giveaway for you dear readers to help your pup get in the holiday spirit.

Disney Holiday Pet Scarf

First up from the Disney PetHoliday Collection, this adorable Minnie Mouse scarf. Just in time for the cooler weather, and super festive too.

We loved how easy it is to put on, and of course, how adorable it looked. The scarf is one size, so it could fit a variety of sizes. In fact, it was a bit long for our girl, but we plan to shorten it because it’s so cute, and we want her to be able to wear it safely.

The entire Disney PetHoliday collection is not only fun, but it is perfect for any Disney fan. I’m excited to share the rest with you soon (the giveaway will feature items from the Disney PetHoliday line, so stay tuned)!

Tino’s Couture for your best friend.


Baby recently got a package from Tino’s Dog Couture. She was very excited to see what was inside! The packaging was so pretty, but she didn’t stop long to admire the wrapping paper, she wanted it open! And as you can see, what was inside was an even prettier package, with a pink polka dotted bow and collar! This is called the Sofia set, but there are other choices too to suit your dog’s taste.



The collar and bow match each other perfectly. What is really neat is the bow can be removed easily from the collar with the two snaps it attaches with. This makes it simple to “dress up” your furry friend, or let them be a bit more casual. And as you can see, the set is absolutely adorable:


Tino’s Couture offers bows, collars, leashes/leads, charms, and apparel for your stylish dog. We love everything about our bow set. The collar is adjustable so it fits just right. It’s made well, and it looks great too. Be sure to visit the Tino’s Couture website to see all they have to offer.
