Everyone uses mugs, right? For coffee, tea, soup, or as the pen holder for your desk, so giving a mug as a gift is a pretty safe move. And if it happens to include a sassy saying on it, all the better!

This is the perfect t-shirt for both the dog-loving guys and gals in your life!

  • UNISEX MODERN FIT SIZING | this shirt is slightly tapered to be a little less boxy than the old style of mass-market t-shirt. Nothing drastic, and most people wear the same size in our shirts as they do in all of their others, but you might go one size larger if you're on the fence.
  • SOFT FABRICS | This shirt is a ringspun, 30/1 fine jersey knit on 90% USA-grown cotton (10% polyester for the two-tone effect). If you don't speak t-shirt geek, that means they are soft and smooth with a high thread-count, tight knit made out of fuzzy plants grown by American farmers.

  1. Oh my gosh! These are all so cute! I absolutely love dogs and would be willing to buy all these things for myself except I don’t own a dog 🙁 living in an apartment wouldn’t be the best for a dog. I do know my husband’s parents would like this. I’ll think about it since we haven’t even started doing holiday shopping this year.

    1. On the apartment front, it depends on the dog, but I hear you. I still need to get started holiday shopping this year too!
