My family has always owned dogs. Sometimes one of us would get a purebred, but more often than not, we had mutts. When people asked what breed they were, we’d tell them “It’s a mischenhund,” which is German for “mixed dog.” There’s something nostalgic about mutts; scrappy little mixed-breed terriers running through a field with their boy, or face-licking mongrels that want to lie in your lap even after they’re way too big. They may never win any ribbons at the fancy dog show, but that’s okay, because they’re still part of the family.
July 31 is Mutt’s Day, so if you’ve opened your home to one (or lots!) of these “mischenhunds,” take a look at some of our dog mugs!
1. For a Good Life
If you get the second, you’ll get the first.
2. Do You Speak Mutt?
They’re no louder than actual kids.
3. Skip the Meeting
It’s those soulful eyes that get you. Every time.
4. Meet the Family
And prepare to be slobbered on.
5. Take as Needed
Curling up with the dog is a great way to beat the blues.
This is just a small sample of the dog mugs we stock. You can also search for specific breeds from our home page. And remember: U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping!
