About  ” The Pawtographer” from Robert Semrow who is “proud to be “The Pawtographer.”

I love animals and have a tremendous amount of fun being around them. Whether it’s a traditional pose, a candid moment or a creative themed experience, I want to capture those silly looks, funny outfits and special moments that animals allow us to have with them. I want to show the world that energy, unconditional love and attention that animals freely give us.

I have always found that animals are the most naturally loving beings. They will let us hug, play, dress up and goof around with them, if we just give them what they want and deserve most-love and attention…and the occasional treat.

In full disclosure: I was sent a copy of Life Is Pawfect to read and review along with an extra copy for one of my readers. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this post.

“Does anybody really know what time it is?”

We do!!

Wanna know why?

Of course you do!

Here is why!!!

Can you see the face on that watch?

It’s ME!!!

Mom found these great watches (this one she requested to have customized) from the website Pet Lover Paradise! Click here to visit!

This watch is Mom’s cause it has a green (her favorite color) band. She also ordered the same watch but with a black band for Dad as an early Father’s Day gift!!

Mom was originally going to get this watch:

until she realized that the doggy on the watch was a Collie!! I am a Sheltie! So, she learned that she could have the watch customized by using my photo and that is what she did!

Now that Mom and Dad will both be wearing me on their wrists they will ALWAYS KNOW that ANYTIME is time for DINNER!!!

Go and check out Pet Lover Paradise now!! They have soooo many cool things on their site!!  The selection truly is a “paradise!”

Now, if you will excuse me…Dad said it’s “time” for me to eat….I am soooo happy he got this watch!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

Neither Mom nor I were  compensated for this post. Mom BOUGHT both watches. Mom was quite pleased with them and wanted to share the website with you.

Meet Three Dogz LLC, Featuring Upscale Apparel And More! For Pet Lovers! And A Give-Away!

You know how they say a “good man is hard to find?”

Well, I  have the man, and finding him wasn’t nearly as much of a challenge for me as my eternal quest for high quality T-shirts and sweatshirts that showcase the love I have for my furbabies was. That is, until I found Three Dogz, LLC!

I am all about proudly displaying my love for my furbabies but I am choosy about what I will wear. Much of the merchandise I had run into on the web was poorly made,  was unoriginal, didn’t allow me to showcase my love of Shelties, (many sites have a limited list of breeds that you can have put on a T-shirt,  and Shelties seemed to never make the cut!) and came in your basic BORING colors of white, black, blue and red.

Deborah, Joseph and their "furbabies" Mimi, Rita and Carli

Guess what? Those days are gone! Enter Three Dogz LLC,  an Internet-based business which is  owned and operated by Deborah and Joseph LaRocque of Livonia, Michigan (which happens to be about 20 minutes from where I live!) and specializes in selling high-quality products for pet lovers!

Have a passion for dogs, cats or horses? You have found the right place!  When  you visit their website be sure you have a bowl of snacks and a beverage by your side,  because this is NOT a quick-hit-and-run-website. I am certain you will become as smitten and engrossed when viewing their website  as I was.  They have a  vast selection of merchandise that will make YOU wag YOUR tail in sheer delight!

You will find everything from:

"Ms.Zoe"

T-shirts (some with rhinestone, Zebra print, embroidery, etc.)

Sweatshirts

Pawprint Rhinestone Necklace

Jewelry

Pet Bandanas

Desk sets (including Bone shaped Paper Clips, pens/pencils, mouse pads)

Kids Apparel

Couples Apparel

Gift Wrapping Items

AND MORE!

Did I mention these items are quality? Oh I did? Well listen again, I have yet to find T-shirts or sweatshirts for the pet lover that were of such superb quality.

Are you a hard-to-fit-size? No worries. When I was a Plus Size my frustration level used to be through the ceiling. I would find a T-shirt I liked that was only available in a 1X, that is NOT the case here! Plus Sizes are welcome and abundant here in many of their designs!  Where were these guys when I was a 2X or 3X?

Deborah and I live so close to each other that we met for lunch and she  gave me  an adorable “Wild About Shelties” T-shirt to keep and review.  (I have to say that Deborah is every bit as unique and vibrant as the designs featured on her website! It was a complete joy to chat with her in person and to be able to completely see and  feel the love and pride she has for her high quality products).

Here is the shirt that I chose:

My Shirt!!!!

Example of same shirt, showing sleeves and different breed on front.

I was so blown away with the custom design (all Deborah’s designs are created by their own in-house designer and are unique to Three Dogz LLC), you can have YOUR favorite breed featured on your shirt as well (most breeds are available). Your color choices are practically unlimited!

After receiving the T-shirt I proceeded to order the Pet Parents Pledge Sweatshirt (I PURCHASED IT because I LOVE THEIR MERCHANDISE, it was NOT given to me) which is the best-fitting, softest,   most unique and  comfortable sweatshirt that I own! My husband mentioned last night that I need to buy more of them because he had never seen me look so good in a sweatshirt! The attention to detail from the paw prints INSIDE of the hood, to the tiny paw prints on the top of the hoodie are the cutest thing I have seen in quite some time! (Many color choices are available!)

I also ordered Bone-shaped paper clips, a “Dog Mom” embroidered tote bag (that I am giving  to a lucky girl in our family for the holidays, shhhh…don’t tell!)  and some note pads (as a thank-you for my order Deborah threw in a couple of extra items which I was just tickled to receive!)

I am thrilled to let you know that Deborah has generously offered to GIVE one of my readers a T-shirt of their choice!
