Thankful Thursday: For Love Of A Dog

Throughout the nearly four years I have blogged, I have seen many products and met, albeit in many cases” virtually”, many different people.

There are  products and people who come and go, and there are some you just know will be around forever. Some products thrive and remain popular due to their superior quality and the meticulous care that goes into making them, and there are some people who sparkle and shine both inside AND out, just like their products.

One of these people and her products, is Sue Kottwitz from For Love Of A Dog.

I have featured Sue a few times  on Dakota’s blog, and I am tickled to feature her again!  This  time I was the  lucky recipient of a gorgeous bracelet of Sue’s that came from a give-away that Sue had in honor of her cherished  mother’s birthday. (Sue’s mother passed earlier in February of 2013. What an incredible woman she had to have been to have raised a daughter who has a heart bursting with goodness, as Sue does.) 

Here  are photos of what I won:

From For Love Of A Dog: “This is a one of kind piece of dog lover jewelry that I created specially for this celebration.

The focal is a hand crafted purple porcelain dog bone with DOG MOM hand inscribed.  The dog bone is surrounded by a variety of chubby artisan lampwork beads in shades of purple and lavender.  Pale lavender core with purple raised dots, a looping scroll design, and a drum rondelle.”

From For Love Of A Dog: “The clasp is a silver heart with paw print lobster claw.  To finish things just right, I added an artisan lampwork heart that is nicely fat and scarlet red.   This bracelet is a $75 value!”

I wish you could see this bracelet in person, it is even more exquisite than it is in the photos. Here are some photos that I took:

I squealed with delight when I opened my PRIZE!! It is something I will cherish forever!

Did you notice the beautiful presentation of the package?  A couple of years ago, I ordered pieces from Sue and some jewelry from another place, the jewelry all arrived at the same time. I felt bad for the “other” person, because her jewelry was wrapped in a haphazard manner, and then there was Sue’s? Who do YOU think I still purchase jewelry from?

The bracelet is simply GORGEOUS and as I mentioned before this is not the only piece of Sue’s jewelry that I own. I also bought some pieces myself, here is my beloved Sheltie necklace that I BOUGHT!

Yep I bought this breed specific necklace (along with some cat items but THIS is  a DOG blog!) I wore this necklace to BlogPaws 2011!

Are you drooling by now? I thought so! It wouldn’t be fair of me to show you these wonderful items and not tell you that we have an upcoming GIVE-AWAY that will be on Dakota’s blog THIS MONDAY APRIL 1st (and THAT is no joke!) You will have to come back Monday to see what you can enter to win if you live in the U.S. AND CANADA! (it is TOTALLY different than what is featured here today!)

In the meantime you can follow Sue every which way possible and count the minutes til you can enter on MONDAY!

Valentine’s Day Is Coming! Need Gifts For Dog Lovers?

We got ya covered!

Mom and I were cruisin’ around the net one day and we found the MOST INCREDIBLE website for dog lovers!  Here it is!

www.forloveofadog.com

CHECK OUT WHAT MOM ORDERED!

That looks like someone you know doesn’t it?  Yep! That “someone” would be ME! It’s a Sheltie Necklace! (It could pass for a Collie too!) You can check it out right here

Mom was ecstatic when she saw this and just had to order it because:

1) Shelties are very hard for Mom to find on ANYTHING

2) This is the MOST REALISTIC piece of Sheltie jewelry that Mom has ever seen!

When the necklace arrived, the first thing that blew Mom away was the painstaking care and attention to detail that was used for packing. Mom’s jewelry  came packaged in rich chocolate brown boxes accented with red and green and had bows on them. The presentation was just spectacular and the quality of the items were superb!!

Ok doggy buddies I bet you know someone who would LOVE to have an item from this fabulous website! Grab your nearest human and jump online and check them out now!

Mom and I were not compensated for this blog post. Mom purchased every item that she  received from For Love Of A Dog. Mom and I feel that when someone works as hard as they do in offering good, unique, quality products that are shipped with creativity and care, they deserve to be mentioned!
