One of my favorite Facebook pages to follow is Read to Roo. I love seeing Roo’s smiling face in my newsfeed and sharing stories of his work with the members of The 1840 Farm Community on Facebook. While I have never met Roo in person, I can’t help feeling a connection to him. Earlier this year, I published a post entitled, “The Greatest Dog” which explained that connection along with the fantastic work that he does to help enable children to become confident readers.
So, when Roo’s page shared a photo of his new custom dog collar, I couldn’t wait to learn more about it. One click and I was in You Had Me at Woof’s Etsy shop finding myself amazed at the wonderful collection of hand embellished collars they offered for sale.
I just knew that our farmhouse dog Pete Townshend needed his own collar from their dazzling assortment. After looking through the selection, I found that it was difficult to choose just one design. I liked so many of them!
Then I saw a Snoopy collar and fell in love. I have a lifelong love of all things Snoopy and this collar was perfect for me and for Pete. Now all that was left for me to do was wait for Pete’s collar to arrive in our mailbox.
When it did, I was eager to open the package and see the collar in person. I was astounded at what was waiting inside. Both the product and its packaging were unique and of the absolute highest quality. With one collar, You Had Me at Woof had made me their newest fan.
The collar was packaged inside a stamped, reusable muslin bag. The collar itself was sturdy and strong and features a reflective safety clasp. The embellishment detail is firmly attached and appears to be seamlessly integrated into the overall design of the collar and its appearance. A beautiful ribbon detail with “You Had Me at Woof” was applied to the collar without compromising the look of the Snoopy collar. Everything about the collar was beautiful.
The package wasn’t the only thing that impressed me. I also discovered a hand stamped, custom made dog treat waiting inside the package, Pete was suddenly very excited about a collar arriving in the mail. I fastened the adorable Snoopy collar onto Pete’s neck and rewarded him with the fresh biscuit. Pete carefully carried the grain free pumpkin molasses dog treat to his favorite sunny spot in the window of our Parlor and ate every last crumb while sitting in the warm sunshine.
With the treat gone, he settled in and took a nap. Snoopy may have preferred napping on top of his red dog house, but Pete’s spot is the window. Bathed in sunshine, both Pete and Snoopy seemed perfectly content.
Pete has been wearing his adorable collar for several weeks now. I still love it just as much now as the day it arrived. I can’t help but smile when I see Snoopy and Woodstock toasting marshmallows over a campfire looking up at me when Pete stops by to see what I’m working on in the farmhouse kitchen.
You Had Me at Woof offers a wonderfully diverse selection of collars and accessories. I hope that you will visit their Etsy shop to select something for the dog or dog lover in your life during this holiday season. Their collection of holiday collars is amazing. Pete just might need another collar to celebrate the season!
