A personalized book that’s both a “twinning” image of your dog and a heartwarming story
“May you always know the pure love of a furry friend.” As I read the quote on the dedication page of this personalized book, my heart melted. Through a simple message, If My Dog Could Talk had already spoken volumes to me. It was a perfect wish for every dog lover…and one that I wanted to share with my readers. If it resonates with you, please enter the giveaway for a chance to win one If My Dog Could Talk gift set from I See Me®! Books. Details of the giveaway are at the end of this review.
What if our dogs could talk?
If you’re a dog lover, you’ve probably wondered what your dog was thinking. So have I! (Read: “Happy Talk: The Emotional Bond Between Dog and Pet Parent.” ) Now I See Me® Personalized Children’s Books has answered this question with a charming story written from the point of view of your dog.
What’s included in the If My Dog Could Talk gift set?
In one word…cuteness! The personalized set includes:
- 8.5″x 8.5″ If My Dog Could Talk hardcover book featuring your dog’s name, likeness, and the names of up to four dog lovers. Through clever design and storytelling, personalized details are sprinkled throughout the book and seamlessly woven into the story and illustrations.
- Dog placemat with your dog’s name printed along the edge of the mat.
- Embroidered dog bandana that comes in two sizes. (We chose size large for Chloe. She’s wearing it in all the pics.)
What’s the premise of the story?
If My Dog Could Talk by Maia Haag, illustrated by Haag Design, is a delightful, waggy-tailed tale that celebrates the loving bond between dogs and their human pals. The main character of the book is none other than your dog. Through lyrical verse, a positive message, charming images and personalization, the book is a lasting keepsake for anyone who loves dogs.
How does it work?
Creating a book and gift set starring Chloe was easy on iseeme.com. The website’s step-by-step navigation asked me for a few details including…
- dog’s name
- dog lovers’ names (up to four)
- dog style and color.
- Plus, I could upload two photos! (One shown on the dedication page and one shown in the back of the book.)
It was fun to select the dog that looked the most like Chloe. (There were 12 dog styles to choose from.) Here are a few examples…
I selected a color that matched Chloe’s fur. (There were five colors to choose from.) Then a preview of the completed book popped up on screen. Here’s how Chloe’s preview page appeared…
In less than two weeks, the gift set came in the mail. The book, dog bandana, and dog placemat were all neatly and securely packaged in a sturdy box.
Since kiddoodle Chloe is COE (Celebrator of Everything!) at Happy-Go-Doodle, we decided it was time to take a break and have some fun with Chloe’s cute book and gift set. Chloe’s muppet paws danced as I put on her new bandana (a.k.a. handkerchief of happiness). I grabbed some treats for both of us and we headed to the backyard for an impromptu picnic!
We had a spontaneous celebration and the book was oh so A-DOR-ABLE! Most of all, it was a joyful reminder to appreciate the pure love and happiness furry friends share with us. Chloe and I hope you’ll take a happiness break and enjoy the love of your furry friend. Without saying a word, our canine companions speak volumes…and fill a place in our hearts that lasts forever.
