Puppy Dog Version This Is How We Do by Katy Perry | Dog Song Saturday

Not only is it Saturday, so time for a dog song at Talking Dogs, it is also summer and we're feeling silly.  Blame it on Mother Nature and her scorching temperatures.  

After we've done a rain dance or two, we just feel like laughing.  Join us with the puppy version of the Katy Perry hit This Is How We Do.  Yep, another bark out loud parody from The Pet Collective.

Don't sit or heel (bow chicka bow wow).  Just grab a dog.  Relax and enjoy This Is How We Do - the doggie version. Then fetch more dogs songs.  You'll be surprised at how many we've found!

Tennis Ball Dog Jewelry at For Love of a Dog

Yesterday I announced the August giveaway winner of a copper Fetch Dog Bone Necklace.  This giveaway provoked a lot of interest and special orders, including one from someone intending to use it as memorial jewelry.  Their pittie, Rocky, loved tennis balls, so I personalized the dog bone with Rocky's name instead of fetch.  What a wonderful idea!

It's not only retrievers who love a good game of fetch, plus many of my jewelry pieces can be personalized as memorial jewelry.  In fact, any of these bracelets and necklaces can be personalized with your dog's name.

The tennis ball dog bone bracelet shown at top is a festive choice in hot summer colors.  Red coral gemstone beads are combined with some wild handmade lampwork beads and porcelain tennis balls.  They frame the FETCH stamped silver dog bone. I love the large paw print lobster claw clasp and I (heart) My Dog / paw print double sided charm.

Shown above is a similar bracelet with jet black and citrine crystals combined with beautiful floral lampwork beads.  Love the black with those yellow tennis balls!

For those who prefer vintage style, I suggest you fetch the bracelet above.  A daisy lampwork bead, crystals, snow quartz gemstone beads, sweet yellow flower, plus a very cool floral brass toggle clasp.  And tennis balls, of course!

Here's a Fetch Tennis Ball Dog Bone Necklace like our giveaway, but in gold.

Remember, most of my jewelry are one of a kind pieces, so if you see something you like snag it now!  Need something personalized?  Don't be afraid to ask!

Celebrate National Dog Day on August 26

 Jeffie is smiling because today is National Dog Day!

 Rosie is sure treats, Jolly ball, 
and tummy rubs are involved.

Rudy knows every day is Dog Day at our house!

Founded in 2004 by pet lifestyle expert and author Colleen Paige, National Dog Day was created to honor dogs more than we currently do, to give them "a day", to show deep appreciation for our long connection to each other - for their endearing patience, unquestioning loyalty, for their work, their capacity for love and their ability to impact our lives every day in the most miraculous ways.

Happy National Dog Day 
from all of us at 
Talking Dogs and For Love of a Dog Jewelry!
