Nerd dogs, bust out your black rimmed hipster eye glasses and pop on a Scrabble letter I.D. tag for the intelligent way to be returned home.

Esty.com is always a treasure trove of creativity and humor. Decaliciouscom based in Sacramento, CA has created a a funny vinyl decal of a dog doing what all dogs naturally do but they cleverly placed it smack on the back of Apple’s iPad. Given the drop in the quality of Apple products since Steve’s death, I am sure a lot of disgruntled Apple users will find this sticker intelligently placed.

However, this decal can be placed on your car, computer, window or any other place you want to stick it. This decal is also a nice reminder to “pick-it-up”! This slice of humor can be yours for $2.25

This is a sponsored post by PupStyle and these opinions are 100% my own.

Contrary to outer appearances, the smallest toy dog breeds – even the ones who might on occasion wear bowties and top hats – are still related to the mighty wolf.

So despite the style choices, these dogs still require a diet resembling what their ancestors ate in the wild. PupStyle.com CEO, Mr. Oliver is no exception and became super WILD and frisky after his recent protein packed Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ lunch.

IMG_2259

The high-protein kibble, with 20 grams of protein, means Oliver can maintain his healthy waistline for all of the summer fashion photo shoots and still have the energy to scope out other dogs to boss around.

Oliver is so wild after his tasty  lunch that he’s attempting to hack the nutrition code of Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™.

IMG_2139 (1)

Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ makes Oliver so happy he forgets he having a bad hair day and eating out of a can instead of a plate-GASP!

IMG_2315

Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ puts Oliver so in touch with his wild side that he completely forgets his manners and mistakes tires for trees…OOPS!

Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ is formulated to satisfy your dog’s wild side and even the most pampered pet’s ancestral cravings.

Let’s be honest, if I were a dog and found myself lost I might utter the words “Oh Sh*t I am lost!” then hope some nice human finds me, gives me a massive  piece of chicken and brings me home.

Michigan artist Sprout1world on Etsy.com, hand-makes these unique tung and cheek, personalized dog tags that say what most pet parents are and dogs are probably thinking. They also have a hip vintage vibe that lends a timeless feeling to a timeless phrase. A great deal at $22!

I can’t say I recommend this for families with small children, but for grown-ups with a good sense of humor this is made for YOU!.

So what to do with that old wine barrel you picked up at a flea market years ago and it’s been collecting dust in the basement? Keep using it as an end table or flower pot? Nah,  Rock Creek Furniture Company at Etsy.com came up with a really smart DIY idea that you can try yourself or buy from them.

Beautifully , aged reclaimed wine barrels are turned into stylish dog beds and feeders that you can’t find at a mass retailer.  This Colorado based company uses barrels from reclaimed American or French oak which are carefully reinforced, sanded and and sprayed with a high-quality clear finish for a lasting product.

You can change the feeling of the bed easily by experimenting with different fabrics for the cushion. Plaids will give this a classic country look while bold modern prints make it edgy and cool.

A reversible cushion with fleece on one side is a great way to add warmth for winter.

Samsung surveyed 1500 dog owners and a quarter of them admitted they wanted their dog to have a treadmill and TV or tablet.  %64 of the survey felt their dog would benefit from  more technology. WOW!

It’s no surprise that Samsung is pushing full steam ahead expanding into he pet market. I love my Samsung Scout Pet Cam for spying on my dog from my smart phone. Keep up the good work Samsung!

PupStyle readers know a dog bed is meant to be a home furnishings accessory, not just a eye sore in the corner of a room.

Vintage White Elephant is a new New Jersey based business making one of a kind handcrafted dog beds out of mostly vintage fabrics found from from elegant and exotic locations from Paris to Nepal.

vintagewhiteelephantsbed

 

These are investment pieces meant to be an elegant conversation piece to accent your home interior.  Think about one design for your bedroom and another for your family and dining rooms.

vintagewhiteelephanttrim

The unique fringe used in these designs really caught my eye.  I also appreciate the shabby-chic meets international vibe.  The use of various prints and colors keeps the eye moving and the design interesting.

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 1.42.15 PM

The bed covers have already been pre-washed so no worries about any shrinking next time you toss it in the wash and it also has a protective vinyl inside cover to protect the down or alternative insert from and liquid messes. sweet!

Given these are one-of-a-kind pieces, and each is made by hand (no factory line for these beauties) and the time it takes to select the fabrics, these are really special designed to be admired.  Great Job Vintage White Elephant! The “Cherry’s On Top” design above is $275. Not bad for so much TLC put into a dog bed.
