Feature Friday: Handmade Dog Collars... and a Giveaway!

So, do you remember the awesome Matryoshka Doll Dog Collar that I featured last week? Well, Day Dog Design's Etsy store is SO cute that I just have to share some more of her dog collars with you. She gets her ribbons from Europe, mainly Germany and some from Japan and Austria, and makes each collar by hand from only the highest quality materials.

Quite possibly my very favorite collar in her whole store is the Hedgehogs in the Garden one:

Her Love Birds collar is really adorable and girly too:

Or how about this Little Red Riding Hood and the Bad Wolf one:

Have you died of cuteness yet?? If you have a boy dog, don't worry, she has plenty of awesome collars for your fella too. My personal favorite is the Hero collar:

I mean, what dog doesn't secretly (or not-so-secretly) think he's a hero? I really love this Save the Whales collar too:
Okay, okay, I think you are getting the idea that she has some SERIOUSLY awesome collars, right? Just one last collar I have to show you... I love this Helicopters one:

In addition to awesome collars, she also makes some adorable cable knit dog sweaters to keep your pooch warm and cute in the winter:

And cute little zippered pouches that clip to your dog's leash near your hand and can hold clean-up bags, treats, your keys and Chapstick, or whatever else you may want to carry:

And of course, the best part is that Terri has graciously offered to give one lucky winner any one collar or pouch of your choice from her store! How awesome is that?? (And no, this is NOT an April Fool's joke!)

How to enter:
Go to Day Dog Designs and tell me one item in her shop that you love.

For extra entries:
  • Share about this giveaway on Facebook (be sure to include a link to this post) and leave me a separate comment saying you did so.
  • Tweet about this giveaway (again, be sure to include a link to this post, the twitter button at the bottom will give you a nice, short url) and leave me another comment with a link to your twitter.
  • Subscribe to My Messy Manger via RSS feed (button at bottom of sidebar) and leave me another comment saying you did so.
So there are FOUR ways you can enter to win! Comments will close at 12 noon Central Time on Monday, April 4th. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on this blog immediately.

Just for the record- I have received nothing from Day Dog Designs and I don't get any commission from any of her sales, I just really love her stuff and I love to share stuff I love.

  20. I love handmade dog collars.... I tried to do some for my little Hachi but unfortunately he likes only soft leather collars so now I have to make them what he likes.
