The Mod-Dog Blog is back!

Just in case you may remember the Mod-Dog blog, and for the handful of you who were wondering where the heck we went, we’re back! We endured a case of getting taken down by hackers and then getting too busy to blog – so this time, we’re keeping it simple…. a simple blog, simple posts, big pretty photos, and lots of fun for your modern pet.  We’ve also moved our shop entirely to Etsy – because let’s face it, Etsy is so great! Click on over to our Shop and let the Mod-Dogs know what you think.
