About

For the Love of the Dog

For the Love of the Dog
The first dog I ever owned was a beautiful black and tan mutt. My mother, brother and I were grocery shopping when I spotted a litter of puppies. I was around 5 then and knew that I..needed..that..puppy!
I begged my mother, and what do all good mothers say when they want the answer to be yes?

“Ask your father”

I vividly remember how heavy the black payphone handle was in my small hands. I was in tears at the weight of my dad's decision. I needed that puppy! I rambled, through wet tears ,my plea.
My Mother must have known what she was doing, what father could resist their daughter?
He, of course, said yes. I can still picture the ride home in our red Oldsmobile, my brother and I asking for the next turn to hold our new little treasure. We loved her, like all children do their first pet.

We named her Pudgy. She saw us through grade school, high school and into college. She will forever be a wonderful memory of my childhood. She is my inspiration for my shop, happy, fun and light hearted…Oh Pudge!

My mother has always had a big heart for animals (although I may have surpassed her into the “crazy zone”) she is the reason I have become such an animal lover. She also taught me the way around a sewing machine. In college, while getting my degree in Social Work, I picked sewing up again and really began my journey. A few years later I became a stay at home mom and needed an outlet to keep me sane from all the late nights and diaper changes. So, once again, I turned to sewing. I made gifts for friends and family, lovely baby dresses, quilts, lots of curtains and many more. My journey with Oh Pudge started when I couldn't find a collar I liked for my two shelties, they either stained their beautiful white coats or were too thick and would get tangled in their hair. It is also really hot here in Texas (not sure if you knew) and the bulky nylon collars made me sweat just looking at them. One day I decided to make my girls some fun fabric collars, popped them on and forgot about it. A few weeks later we boarded our dogs, one of the employees raved about the collars and how I needed to open my own Etsy account. Well. Alright then, lets give it a go.

Frequently asked questions
Can you stamp on the back of tags?

Yes, I can! I am happy to put a phone number on the back of your tag. However, I can no longer do addresses. Addresses are very long and time consuming which increase the costs. If you are interested in a custom designed tag please message me and we can talk about pricing and placement.

The gold tags do show some markings on the front when stamped on the back. I think they are kind of pretty, almost like a hammered effect, but some people do not like it.

Can you stamp a unicorn , riding on a hot dog, through the Sahara Desert while blowing bubbles?

That does sound amazing! Unfortunately I do not make the metal design stamps myself. I am limited to only the stamps I have in stock. Each image is milled onto the metal stamp. The metal stamp is then placed on the blank (your tag) and hit with a hammer, thus imprinting an image into the tag. Feel free to contact me with your custom ideas and we can work together to create what best suits your needs.

How soon will my order be completed?

I work on tags/jewelry/key chains in the order they come in, since each one is custom none are made ahead of time. My shipping times are set to be overly generous just in case I get a surge in orders that I can’t complete within a few days. Most of the time your tag will be completed within 2-4 days of purchase.
If you need your tag ASAP please message me first and I will be happy to let you know if I can get it to you in time.

What size ID tag do you recommend for my dog/cat?

I recommend the ¾ inch tag for cats and small dogs under 10 pounds. My 15 pound cat wears a ¾ tag and it looks great on her. Some people do prefer the larger 1 inch tag on their cats.
The 1 inch tag looks great on dogs 11-45 pounds. I have two Shetland Sheepdogs (30 pounds) who wear the 1 inch tag.
The 1 ¼ tag fits dogs 30 pounds and up. If you have any concerns or questions about sizing please ask, I want you to love your new ID tag.

Also, be sure to check out the listing photos to see examples of the tags on my doggies!

My NU Gold tag has tarnsihed over time, is there anything i can do?

Yes! Nu Gold is made of a mixture of metals, including copper. As you know copper does patina/tarnish over time and if expose to certain elements will tarnish more quickly. If you do not like the patina/tarnish you can use any kind of polishing cloth or a polishing compound for copper jewelry.

I have also tried a few homemade recipes (I hear ketchup works too?) a mixture of vinegar and salt finished with a light scrubbing of baking soda will removed patina .BUT PLEASE use cation with these methods, you want to make sure you do not harm the black wax that darkens your letters nor do you want to scratch your tags.

Why silver split rings with my nu gold tag?

I have used gold colored split rings in the past only to be told by clients that their tags have fallen off their dogs collar. When the client opens the split ring and attaches them to the collar the split ring does not close back, leaving a space for the tag to work its self off. This can easily be fixed by pinching the split ring back into a closed position with pliers. If you feel confident that you can do this please let me know and i will send the gold split rings, other wise silver (stainless steel) rings will be sent due to their time proven strength .
