Just Some Random

     Hi, everyone! First off, thank you so much for all the POTP you gave Mom yesterday; it worked! Her first shoot as a "professional" photographer was a hit!


    Second, I'm going to ask again for some POTP. Phoenix goes in to be spayed (finally) in the morning.






     Third, Mom and I will hopefully be taking the AKC's Community Canine Test (an advanced Canine Good Citizen test, since I passed that will flying colors) sometime between late April and early June. It all depends on the evaluator in the area. I'm not worried at all; I live for this stuff! Mom's been searching for more Rally trials, but our area is sorely lacking in the dog community department.



     Fourth, I don't like it when Mom leaves me like she did yesterday. It has forced me to take desperate measures to keep her home, as you can see in the below photo.

Just where do you think you're going?

Cut The Grass, Would Ya?


The grass isn't actually as long as it looks. I'm laying down in both of these. It's so vibrant and pretty, the peeps can't bear to cut it yet!

PS: Mom has her first "official" photography job today, and she's super nervous! If you could send some POTP her way (to calm her ass down), I'd appreciate it!

Dachshund Nola Reviews: Doggone Tags

     Hi, everyone! Today we have a review for the Etsy shop Doggone Tags (also on Facebook here). Here's a little about them:



Hi all and welcome to Doggone Tags... catering to cool pets and their people since 2010 

At Doggone Tags, we strive to have the most unique designs in a variety of styles. Doggone Tags has been seen in Modern Dog Magazine, IVillage, City Dog, Nova Dog, and Bark. We've also been featured in countless blogs and are so gratified that our customers (both human and non human) are so happy with their purchases ! 

it's also gratifying to be able to give back to the pet community and we work with a few different rescue groups each year. After all, without a certain rescue group here in the DC area, this jewelry designer would not have turned to tag making ! Thank you Lucky Dog, DC ! :) 

Our tags are made in mixed metal and all are created in a small studio in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It's definitely NOT a critter free place by choice :) 






     Mom bought me my first Doggone Tag when we first moved here about two years ago now. She wanted something that was A) small B) cute and C) durable. After looking all over Etsy, she stumbled across Doggone Tags. Hmmm.... Small? Check! Durable? Looks like it. Cute? You bet! I wore my first tag from them every single day for a solid year, and that includes tons of beach time, hiking, vacations, and a new puppy in addition to the normal (and vigorous) every day wear and tear. It's still in great shape! Name and number are still clearly visible, and in very good condition considering the beating it got.




    Doggone Tags has tons of tags in varying sizes and designs, and the owner is great to deal with. They also do custom work, which is really neat!

PROS:
Massive selection
Good prices
Incredible quality
Great service
Fast shipping
Adorable
Unique

CONS:
Nothing!
