It's cute and as the photo describes. It seemed to come fast enough. I didn't get the sense I was dealing with a small artisan company. I wrote back to say I wanted to order a second identical tag and never heard a reply. I like what I got - the product - but didn't feel I was having a very Etsy experience.
made with bug love
We are the crazy dog people your mother warned you about!
Dog hair, coffee, a sewing machine, and a little black cocker spaniel nicknamed Bug got us started in this adventure, and we wanted to share that love with everyone else.
Parents aren't supposed to have favorites, but lets face it we all do. Biko (who was affectionately named Bug) was hands down the favorite dog of anyone he met. He was adorable, sweet, quirky, and his antics kept us laughing every day. He was found Thanksgiving weekend on the Texas country roads with his fur bleached out from the weather, covered in fleas and ticks, and a long list of ailments that made him gravely ill. Everyone he met fell in love and fought to keep him alive, and we were no exception. He lived a short but happy life with us and his canine brothers before being diagnosed with a deadly blood disorder in 2011. Once we lost our beloved little man we wanted to share with the rest of the world what he had given us: lots of love and pure joy. And so with bug love was created.
We work with different rescue groups across the US in both fostering and transporting dogs and donating collars and leashes for dogs looking for their forever homes. Every dog deserves a little bling in their life, and we want to make sure their new start in their new life is done in style.
To see updates on our current fosters or to see the stories of those who have found their forever homes, add us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or visit our website www.withbuglove.com

Mungo is half beagle, half doxie, and fully adorable. If there's a strange sound or scent in a five mile radius, Mungo will investigate and report back.
If there's a rule that's broken or a policy not followed, Darby is the first one to address it. Potty times, dinner time, and nap time are on a strict schedule, and Darby keeps tabs on them all.
Biko, or "bug" as he was more commonly known, was our beloved cocker spaniel who passed away in July 2011. He was a rescue dog who gave us great joy and love, and inspired us to foster and adopt our other three dogs Fenway, Mungo, and Gemma.
