Green Dogs Delight in Greenies;

Her Love for Greenies

Do you realize that a week from Sunday is Mother's Day? OMG! I've been putting this off, but it's time. I'm bringing out the big guns. Who remembers the handbags I brought in a while back? I thought I would set up a little store on the site, but for now I've decided that I'm not really liking the whole record keeping, inventory, and sales tax thing. Ya know? 

I've decided to stick with what has been working: product reviews, strategies for happy dogs and happy families, and the Ask the Vet and Ask the Dog Trainer columns. After all, Tanner and Oliver need to eat.

Small Linen-Look Handbag
So, on to the handbag giveaway. Let's start with 1 tote bag and 1 small handbag. I've selected these two for the Mother's Day giveaway. The tote is large enough to carry your laptop, made from a soft woven fabric with a zippered top and fully lined interior, including a pocket. The small linen-look handbag is also lined with a zippered top and interior pocket. Both have squared bottoms and double webbing handles. They are perfect for that mother in your life that is totally smitten with pups.

The handbags come from a small community of ladies in Thailand that hand make these bags. The detail of the hand stitched decorations is just adorable. This is, hands down, the cutest thing I found in Thailand during my visit with our son over the holidays. I've brought these home for YOU. So enter enthusiastically and have fun with this! I have a feeling the competition will be intense, so I'm going to lay down the law:

  • There's absolutely no way I can get it to you or your mom in time for Mother's Day, so consider a certificate, or print out the photo. I will mail it to your mother in giftwrap or a giftbag, if you request. (Yeah, I know. I'm a sucker for a loving daughter).
