In late February 2008, I got a call from my husband. It was around 6 in the evening, so it wasn’t out of the ordinary to hear from my husband around that time. Normally we would discuss how our days went or what we were going to have for dinner, but this call was far different. “Why did you leave the door unlocked?”, he asked. I thought about it for a moment and replied, “I didn’t. In fact, I’m sure I didn’t.” It was at that point we both paused and realized something was very, very wrong. Sure enough, as he walked into the house he realized that our back slider had been left open and things were out of their usual place. We had been robbed.
The people who broke into our house got very little – a laptop, a watch my husband got for high school graduation, a baseball, and a blanket (presumably to wrap all the stuff in). But the back slider being open meant that our cat, Sonoma, had gotten out. My first “child” was missing. I was a basket case. For 3 days, we circulated flyers, made phone calls to shelters, and visited local vet clinics. The only thing that gave me comfort was the fact that Sonoma had her tags on. If someone saw her they could reach me. And eventually that happened. After 3 terrifying days Sonoma was home safe.
To say I’m a big believer in pet tags would be an understatement. But there’s no reason they can’t be stylish, right? And that’s exactly where Pooch Swagger comes in. Pooch Swagger is an Etsy shop specializing in handmade, stylish pet tags. All tags are made using a 1 inch pendant and filled with resin. And best of all, you get to choose the shape of tag and the type of metal used. Plus, there are tons and tons of styles to choose from. These tags are completely custom, to represent you and your pet’s personalities. And we all know they have personalities, too.
But remember, these tags aren’t just for cats and dogs. The sky’s the limit – monkeys, bunnies, horses, whatever! And if you don’t have pets of your own, these tags make the perfect gift for the pet lover in your home.
I think this is my absolute favorite:Check out those fall colors! Love them! And the Pooch Swagger Facebook pages is chock-full of new designs, just like this one.
