Oh, hey there! Do you see anything new and, um, sparkly about me?
Okay, look closer.
Yep, that’s right. I have a GAWJUSS new hand-made collar! But don’t be TOO jelly cuz you can enter to win a collar of your very own, too! You just gotta keep reading to the bottom for how.
Now, I’m always excited when we get to write any review but I’m doubly, triply, FOUR TIMES as excited to write this review. Because this might be one of our most favoritest things we’ve ever talked about.
A couple of weeks ago, we got an email from a nice lady named Tina Wang. Miss Tina had read one of mom’s Dogster articles about me and wanted to say hi cuz SHE has a fearful doggie, too, named Riley. Here’s a picture of Miss Tina and Riley. Isn’t it all sorts of happy-making?
Mom and Miss Tina got to emailing back and forth and Miss Tina told mom that Riley had changed her whole entire life. She hadn’t ever had a dog before she got Riley, and she adopted him from a shelter because she thought he was cute (which he is). But THEN she found out he had all these issues because he was super afraid of the world. So Miss Tina and Riley have worked real hard over the past few years to help Riley feel better about things. She even began writing a blog called The Life of Riley. Well, one day she realized she loved training Riley so much that she wanted to help other dogs and humans by becoming a professional dog trainer!
So in the middle of all this, she started making cute collars for Riley. And then she decided to open an Etsy shop and sell them to help raise green papers for rescues. In fact, she donates 100% of her profits to rescue. Just how PAWSOME is THAT???
So of course when she asked us if we’d do a review, we were over the moon. We went directly over to her shop and had the hardest time deciding.
All of them are hand-made, so not only can you pick the design, you can also choose the color of the collar (dark brown, brown or black), the type of gemstone, and nickel or brass hardware.
We picked the 3/4″ Pyramid design in brown with purple gemstones and nickel hardware.
We knew it was gonna be pretty but when it showed up, it was even more beautiful than we imagined it would be.
The leather is SUPER soft, not stiff and scratchy, and the stones are very sparkly.
The stones and the studs are fastened securely to the collar, and the buckle is real nice and solid so it shouldn’t break easily.
If you’ve seen our other reviews, you know we hardly ever give a full four paws up. But we are Most Impressed with this collar and give it four HUGE paws up (and mom is throwing in two thumbs up as well).
Okay, now it’s your chance to win one of these GAWJUSS collars for yourself! Just use that Rafflecopter thingie below to enter. The giveaway will run through this Friday, February 14th and we’ll announce the winner on my bloggie on Monday. (Sorry furends in the rest of the world. This is open to U.S. residents only.)
