Look familiar? Long time friends and followers will recognize Pip, my heart dog and co-founder of the blog.
I was recently contacted by Petsies, a company who makes custom stuffed animals to look like your pet. They kindly offered to make one of Ruby, but I decided to go with Pip instead. I sent them a few pictures and about four weeks later Petsies Pip arrived at my door.
Petsies Custom Stuffed Animals Almost Like The Real Thing
As you can see the resemblance is uncanny! The Petsies team of designers captured every detail just right. His deep brown eyes are buried under fur just like the real Pip’s eyes. His markings, the consistency of his fur, and even the shape of his feet are spot on. Petsies Pip is a little bigger than the real Pip – but Pip had a big personality so I’m totally OK with that! Sometimes when I pass a room and see Petsies Pip sitting on a chair, I do a serious double take.
Each Petsies is hand-stitched and crafted by a team of amazing seamstresses and designers, using airbrushing techniques to perfectly capture your pet’s likeness and essence. The process takes awhile, but the result is so worth it and the attention to detail is incredible. Ordering is super simple – just send them a picture and answer a few questions online. Once a week, the Petsies team will send you an email with a status update on your order.
I know it sounds crazy but it is strangely comforting to see Petsies Pip sitting on the couch or on our bed or curled up with Ruby. If you or someone you know have recently (or not so recently as in our case) lost a much loved friend, I would encourage you to give Petsies a try. They make a perfect gift to celebrate your best friend or remember a lost love.
