Today I'm belatedly sharing one of my "surprise" Christmas presents. (And by "surprise" I mean: I ordered it, checked it out when it arrived, then pretended to forget about it until Xmas morning. But the hubs did wrap it. And by "wrap it" I mean: stick it in a gift bag. Lest you think that's laziness, no! It's just being green. Okay, and maybe a little lazy. We have these dog-themed gift bags that we've probably been using for a decade or more!)
Anyway, here it is!
It's one of the custom offerings from Dog City & Co. You send them a side-shot photo of your pup, and they make it into a silhouette. You can pick the color for the T, for the accent words (like "Rita" and "Pooch Smooches" on mine) and choose a selection of words you wanted added.
Here it is close up. I had them add things like beagle-shepherd mix, cuddle, guardian, rescue, etc. Isn't it cute?! If I get my act together and make it to Blog Paws, I'm sure you'll see me sporting this one of the days!
In Other News...
It was Rita's Gotcha Day yesterday! Two years we've had her! She got a Gotcha-day pizzle to celebrate.
This weekend we'll take her to In N Out for a Flying Dutchman to extend the celebrations, since Daddy missed most of the day being at work.
Some Belated Thank Yous
I wanted to do some quick shout-outs and thank yous to folks who recently did book reviews or interviews:
First, thank you to Emma the GBGV and her mom for reviewing What the Dog Ate a couple of weeks ago. If you haven't checked out Emma's blog or her adorable book, Tales of a French Scent Hound, you need to!
Next, thank you to Molly the Wally for the lovely things she said about Rescue Me, Maybe!
Finally, thank you to Lydia at Novel Escapes for the fun "Would you rather..." interview. You can probably guess my picks on a few (Drama or comedy? Hmm. That's a toughie, right? Dogs or cats? Gee, hmm, not sure.) but stop by to see if I choose zombies or vampires? Camping or spa vacation? And the really hard question: Chips, chocolate or cheese?
Sorry I was so wordy!
P.S. I was not paid to review the Dog City & Co. tee. I purchased the shirt on my own and wanted to review it cuz it's so cute.
