Enter to win! Personalized Paw Print Dog Lover Necklace (#BlogPaws Jewelry!) from For Love of a Dog!

Didn’t I tell all of you that I had a GREAT give-away up my sleeve? And….this is NOT an April Fool’s joke, it’s the real deal! You can enter to win a “Personalized Paw Print Dog Lover Necklace” (BlogPaws Jewelry) from:

for love of a dog logo with jewelry sues

This all came about a few weeks ago when Sue Kottwitz,  (the owner/creator of For Love Of A Dog Jewelry) and I were communicating back and forth via email, and Sue had the idea of making jewelry that would not only be ideal for those of us attending the BlogPaws Conference in May, but would also be suitable for those who are not members of BlogPaws (or bloggers), but would still love to purchase (or win!!) the necklace for themselves!

I thought that was a fantastic idea!

When I went to the BlogPaws conference  in 2011,  I brought way too much jewelry to “represent” both my dog AND my cat!   blogs. Packing was a nightmare, I had so many chains around my neck that I looked like “Mr.T!!

Well Sue came up with the PERFECT solution for that problem!

 Sue sent me a necklace that covered ALL of my “bases!”

 Here is a photo of my necklace!

for love of a dog MY official blogging necklace

The colors are perfect, and my dog, cat blogs,  AND BlogPaws are all “represented” on one necklace! That means, I will ONLY need to wear this necklace for the entire conference and I will just bring a pair of earrings with me. One packing challenge solved!

Being the incredibly kind, caring and giving person that Sue is, she offered to have a give-away on not just one of my blogs but BOTH of them! (The give-away on Cat Chat will be held on April 8th!)

In full disclosure: 

As I mentioned on the last blog post where I featured For Love Of A Dog jewelry, I have BOUGHT a number of  pieces of Sue’s jewelry, and I couldn’t be happier. When I  mention the superb quality, value, creativity, uniqueness,  and appearance of Sue’s jewelry, I am saying that as a CUSTOMER, NOT as a person given an item for free to review. I BOUGHT Sue’s jewelry long before I ever won a bracelet, from her blog, and before I was sent my necklace for the purpose of a review/give-away.
All opinions are my own!

  7. Lucky me…I’d already done all of the tasks so we’re entered four times…Paws crossed that I get lucky and wind this gorgeous necklace for Momz!

  8. I went and checked out her whole website! I love everything! I love her stuff because it doesn’t shout “I’m a kooky dog lover” from 10 miles away, but when you get close, you get to see all the precious little charms.

    I am a proud kooky dog lover, and who wouldn’t want to wear a necklace that showed off our love for our dogs?

  9. Mom says that the bracelet reminds her a bit of that Pandora bracelet she sees on tv all the time. 🙂

  10. This is so pretty. It would look great around my ma’s neck. The paw print charms, the colors and the Blogger along with the BlogPaws charms make it look great. I also love that it is silver. Ma can’t wear gold so this would be pawfect for her!!

    *high paws*

    • Oz you DO NOT have to be going to BlogPaws to enter! The charms are removable and I am fairly certain if you win, you could have yours made WITHOUT BlogPaws on it! So come back and enter! Love, “Mom”

      • Iz back!!! I think we missed that part where you said Miss Sue would be so kind to change the BlogPaws one. *bonks self in head* You know, Ma doesn’t have any doggie jewelry – it is so sad. I bet she would love this as a gift; I would give it to her for no other reason but because I love her. We follow Miss Sue’s blog already, as well as follow on Twitter and G+. Not sure about facebook…I would have to double-check and when I do, I WILL be following (if I’m not already).

  61. I love the black and red colors. I also love the thought of having a necklace that says “blogger” on it. I’m not very good at promoting myself or telling people I write a blog, so wouldn’t that be a great conversation starter? I’m also adding For Love of a Dog to my list of places to do some Christmas shopping!

  62. I also went and liked For Love of a Dog on Facebook.

  63. Would love to win one as a great conversation piece and introduce my new nonprofit to help reverse the rate of homeless pets through education and communication. Here’s hoping!

  64. Just wanted to come back and let you know that I do follow on twitter, like on facebook and follow the blog in my google reader. 🙂 This is a gorgeous necklace and I’ve already told Sue to put me down for one in case I don’t win. 😉

  65. What a truly beautiful way to keep our fur babies close to our heart all the time. Beautiful jewelry that anyone would be proud to wear

  66. My dogs and I love to follow Dakotas Den, and cat chat with Cody. Caren always has the most amazing giveaways! and this time the necklace with the glass charms is unbelievably Dogriffic! I love to show off my dogs and wear quality jewelry pieces representing my passion for my babies. I am a huge avid animal lover and currently attending school to become a vet tech, and volunteer for animal rescue. This necklace would be my pride and joy! and I would wear it every day!

    “My mamma has been sick, and this would pawsitively cheer her up! we are keeping our paws crossed that we will be the lucky winner!!”
