Heart Dog Shop: For People Who Love Dogs

I opened “Heart Dog Shop” to sell clothing that captures the love I have for dogs. After years of frustration wearing clothing that I simply didn’t like very much, I decided to do something about it. Here’s the design that started it all: Heart Dog.

Heart Dog Shop Tee Shirt

This semi-fitted tee comes in 12 colors. Medium is an 6-8 (more 8 than 6) and Large is a 10-12 (more 10 than 12)

Every where I go, other dog lovers smile and comment on this tee. It strikes a cord with our tribe; it says what needs saying without saying it.

This Heart Dog tee is for every woman who has ever had a heart dog and wants to celebrate that fact.

We know exactly how you feel because we have felt it, too.

The fit is not snug nor is this crew neck tight. It’s semi-fitted and is a favorite of mine.

Want to see all the colors?

Sizes Small – 2 XL.

Prefer the classic red on white featured below in this cut? We’ve got you covered! Click here for those tees.


Heart Dog Loose Fit Tee ShirtRed hearts on a classic white or heather tee. This is the Heart Dog tee that started it all and the image I fell in love with.

This heart dog is literal made of hearts from the tip of the tail to a cute heart nose.

This is a more relaxed fit tee running from Small to 4XL.

Like this cut? Comes in all the colors above here: Relaxed Fit Tees


This shop exists to serve you so let us know what you like and what you’d like to see changed. We love hearing from you!

Pet Memorial Stones

Pet loss is a private devastation. To those of us who know, it does not need to be explained. To those who do not, it cannot be explained. And that loss echoes forward. It never leaves us. We never forget. Life goes on. New loves grow. But back in a corner of our hearts, their loss remains. I write this blog because I am getting a few of these pet memorial stones for the ones I have lost.

Don’t know exactly why I haven’t up to now except maybe it made it too real. I’m not sure. What I am sure of is now I am home and I want their memories around me. I like the idea of gardening with the butterflies fluttering and Pip baking herself in the sun the way she likes to and seeing a beloved name near by. Seeing that wag or grin in my mind. Touching that head one more time in my heart. I can bear the momentary tears for those many, many happy memories.

Shopping hints: “Sandblasted” generally means real stone and real stone means shipping charges and a generally small size. I like the small size myself but be sure to check the details so you get exactly what you want. Personalized all have special instructions about how to get the details to the manufacturer. Many of these are resin which keeps down the weight and the cost but still looks like real stone to me.
