Pet wall art, a review and giveaway!!!

You know when you come across something that is oh! so cute that makes your heart melt and your brain cells go: I **NEED** to have it? That's exactly how I felt when I came across these custom dog art prints, by Dogs Incorporated.

They are so whimsical and capture the personalities and quirks of each breed perfectly. This one is my favorite (I know, I'm biased tee hee hee):

I love the bright pink in the background and the message - ALL YOU NEED IS SILKY TERRIER LOVE - because let's face it! It is true! There is nothing better than coming home to a puppy who is jumping up and down, with a tail that wags so much it looks just like a motor boat. All that happiness just to greet you, to say: "Mommy, I've missed you." Even if I was gone for only 5 minutes. True story.

And don't even get me started on that face. It portrays everything Leela is: a little reserved at first, but a quick look at those big brown eyes and you can see just how sweet she truly is. Sassy too. And her little wet nosy! Oh how I feel like biting it sometimes. It is so cute! And they come in different coat colors too, so you can customize it to truly reflect your baby's features.

Now look at this bad boy!

Melvyn was such a cool dog! I can totally picture him doing that. Listening to some jazz and blues.

Dogs Incorporated offers many different options, and you can shop by breed or by collection.  They have over 60 breeds to choose from and each one is cuter than the last.

They also offer custom pet portraits. You send them a picture of your beloved furryend(s) and their talented graphic artists spend hours dedicated to custom creating your dog portrait through an intricate graphic illustration design process. Made especially for you. Wouldn't it make an awesome Christmas gift? I know 2 grandmas that would love it.

5% of every sale gets donated to worthy animal related causes and efforts, nation-wide. 
Gotta love a company that supports animals in need.

Leela and I love our Dogs Incorporated Print and have found the most perfect place to display it in our studio. What do you think?

Leela and Sebastian go on a 2nd date in San Francisco

See part 1 of our date here.

Who knew that Baker Beach was such an awesome place??? The ocean breeze, blue sea and beautiful sand made this the perfect and most romantic place for Sebastian and Leela's 2nd date.

And how gorgeous did Sebastian look? In case you wore wondering, he is wearing a collar and neck tie made by his momma and available here). He really went all out to impress my little girl.

And even though it was windy and foggy... The two babies were mesmerized by the beauty and grandiosity of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Afterwards, we all headed to the Ferry Building.

Where we rested and watched humans....

Checked out the cool shops inside the Ferry building...

And grabbed a bite to eat.

We had such a great time acting as tourists in San Francisco. It is such a dog baby friendly place. Sebastian and Leela attracted so much attention. They do look really cute together.

To see more pictures of our wonderful dates, be sure to visit Sebastian's blog.

I also have a big surprise to share with y'all!!! If you follow Ooh Leela! on Facebook, you might already know what it is.... tee hee hee :)

What is your favorite spot to go on a date?

Have a great day sweet furryends!
