Our Pug-alicious Photo Shoot! (and a coupon!)

It is no secret that I LOVE pugs, so you won’t be surprised to hear I had a blast with these monkeys today. Tracy brought her two pugs Zack and Zelda (who you have probably seen all over our site and blog, they are the cutest!) and her bf’s pug Stella (you remember her, we named our Stella Rose and Blue collars after her!)

Pugs MImi Green CollarsI love this photo. It reminds me of an early 1900s photo where everyone is so stoic.

Zack is such a ham, he didn’t take a single bad photo.

and Zelda has such a great “pug” look to her. She is as sweet as she is beautiful too.

Instagram Love

I am having such a blast with Instagram lately.  The community has really grown and I’m finding it to be even more fun than Facebook.  It kind of eliminates all the annoying things about facebook because when you have to make an image to go along with what you have to say, rude remarks or political rants are a bit more difficult to flood the feed with.  I miss the days when Facebook was a positive place to post photos or good news about your life and Instagram really fills that void.

Some may tire of all the “this is what I ate for lunch” photos, but that kind of lightheartedness is what makes my day. Call me crazy, but I can really escape in photos of the yummy dinner you cooked or how cute your kiddo /doggie is. Meanwhile, logging on to Facebook can sometimes be more frustrating than anything else.

And then there’s this:

[instapress userid=”jamieoliver” piccount=”10″ size=”90″ effect=”fancybox” title=”1″ paging=”1″]

Chef Jamie Oliver’s feed (be still my heart!) . And he’s not the only star doing it — you can pretty much follow any tv personality, blogger, or celebrity that you are into.

So if you’re into Instagram as much as me or want to give it a look, make sure to search for #mimigreen for some super sweet photos of doggies wearing our collars (and if you post any photos of your pooches in our collars, please make sure to tag #mimigreen — we love seeing all the new photos!)  And if you want to see tons of pug, food, and Mg office photos follow me at amandajmiller.

Cute Reflective Dog Collars — Be Safe and Look Good!!

We’ve had tons of requests for reflective dog collars but I just couldn’t figure out how to make them as cute as our other collars.   After tons of thought we finally had custom colored reflective ribbon made just for us and came up with some super cool reflective collars!

Cool Reflective Dog Collar

(isn’t Minion cute! She is our manager Paula’s puppy and she is tuning 1 next week! She came from the the Save a Mexican Mutt Rescue  which is an awesome organization who helps save dogs on the streets in and around San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.)

We started with Grape, Raspberry, Forrest Green, Aqua Blue and Black but will have tons of other colors by summer.

I was skeptical, but these collars turned out more awesome than I could have imagined!

We also used the reflective ribbon to make our Personalized Buckle Dog CollarsPersonalized Reflective Dog Collar, Cute Reflective Dog CollarsThe 3M reflective tape looks grey in daylight, but even indoors any ray of light reflects brightly on this collar. This way any approaching vehicle will spot you and your dog from up to 1000 feet away so you will both stay safe on your evening walks!

Cebra Loca Oilcloth Collar (Crazy Zebra)

Name our Zebra Oilcloth Dog Collars

We always name our oilcloth collars after Mexican sayings/names (Que Chula, Tres Flores, Mi Corazon), but we are all stumped on these new Zebra Oilcloth collars. We’d love for you to help us choose a name! If we choose your idea you will win a free oilcloth collar of your choice!

New Molly Mutt Couch!

I love d.y.i, shabby chic, electic non- matching furniture, but I think I took it to a new level today with my re-covered couch.

molly mutt dog bed couchYes, those are Molly Mutt beds on my couch cushions! Aren’t they cool? This is her brand  new bed, Nightswimming.  I covered the back pillows with a Amy Butler fabric this past winter, but the cushions were falling apart. Between my two boys and my 3 dogs, these cushions were wrecked! We’ve been looking for a new couch for about 6 months but every time we see our boys jumping off the arms, eating on it, etc. we put off the new purchase.  Not only that, but no matter what we do we can’t train the doggies to stay off!

I think Dan said it best when he said “If we can’t keep the dogs off the couch, we will make the couch into a dog bed.”  I can’t say he looked to happy while saying it, but I’ll take what I can get 😉

molly mutt nightswimming dog duvetYeah, it is kinda strange to cover your couch in dog beds, but I am taking comfort in the fact that not a single person on this planet has a couch quite like mine.

Plus, with all the the awesome Molly Mutt fabrics no one would ever even know these are dog beds!

They look so pretty and feel so nice I almost feel like I got a new couch. Plus, I think I saved the couch from having to go to the landfill (yes, the cushions were that bad!)

The Carlson Pug Gang Represent Personalized Dog Collar Buckles!

I love these pugs.  If you have been following us for long, you probably recognize Zoe, Zack and their little sis Zelda Pug. They are probably 3 of our biggest cheerleaders, they’ve been wearing Mimi Green almost exclusively for the past 4 years!

Pugs Personalized Dog CollarsThey belong to my friend Tracy, she says they are a pug gang but I’m not too scared 😉 Although, anytime someone is missing an eye I gotta wonder what happened to the other guy in the fight! The missing eye defiantly makes Zoe look mysterious 😉

Zelda is wearing our new Cora collar, Zack is wearing the Tangerine Collar, Zoe is in the Madeline Collar and all three of them are wearing our laser engraved personalized collar buckles!

What I love about these personalized collars is that there is no need for noisy jingling tags, but Tracy likes the look of their handmade tags so these pugs wear both.

I know it must be hard to choose between the plastic and metal engraved buckle collars, so I thought I’d put together a list about each of their qualities to help.

PLASTIC ENGRAVED PERSONALIZED DOG COLLAR BUCKLE:

  1. The plastic buckle is contoured, the metal buckle is not. (This is mainly why the Carlson Pugs are wearing the plastic)
  2. I like the look of the white engraving on the black buckle, it is really different and super good looking.

METAL ENGRAVED PERSONALIZED DOG COLLAR BUCKLE:personalized dog collars-no jingling tag!

  1. The metal buckle feels really special. It weighs the same amount as the plastic buckle, but it feels more substantial.
  2. I like that the engraving on the metal buckle looks like the engraving on a dog Id tag. It just makes sense.

I think that either way you can’t go wrong. They are both really wonderful buckles and they are both super strong (which is very important in a dog collar buckle).  My dogs are currently using the plastic buckles and we love them. I also have an engraved plastic buckle on my camera strap (pictures coming very soon — it looks SO cool!) with my named engraved. Tracy’s dad came up with that idea — brilliant, right!? I feel so happy every time I see my buckle with MY name on it! I imagine that my dogs feel the same way about their engraved buckles (well they would if they could read right!)

Spring is in the Air at Mimi Green!

We love the Spring here at Mimi Green. Spring is great because it is 1. the end of winter and 2. Spring collar time! Every Spring we design 5-7 new fabric collars which will be our staples for the year. This year was especially fun because we had SO many awesome fabrics to choose from. So, with no further ado, meet Cora, Jones, Louie, Stella Blue & Stella Rose!
Spring Line of Mimi Green CollarsI think this might be our strongest line ever (I probably say that every year, right!?) But seriously, I LOVE every one of these collars! I loved Stella so much that I had to make it in two color ways. It is a super funky West Indies pattern, it looks like a fabric you’d find in Anthropologie.

I also am super excited because two of the collar patterns are specifically for boy dogs. We get asked a lot to make more masculine collars and this year we listened. The Louie and the Jones are just about as masculine as a designer fabric dog collar can get.  I can totally imagine a big male dog sporting either one of these collars with pride 😉

Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our very popular Caroline Collar this month, but its replacement, Cora, is just as beautiful.

As with all of our collars, these are named after dogs we know and love. Just for fun, meet the real :

Cora pomeranian dog
Cora
jones german shepherd
Jones
Louie French Bulldog
Louie
stella pug
Stella

So here’s to the tulips blooming, allergies kicking in, more daylight and new doggie collars!  Gotta love the Springtime.
