Loose Leashes™ by Ron Schmidt

I'm a dog lover in fact we have a 10 month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Poppy. She's a rescue dog and training seems to take forever with her. She is constantly doing crazy things in the garden and the house and I'm always wishing I had my camera with me to catch those moments. Unfortunately, I'm sure even if I had the camera handy the image would be a blur because she's constantly moving. Here's one of the rare times I managed to get her standing still.

Ron Schmidt an American photographer seems to magically capture dogs and puppies in wonderful and funny images. Some of course are staged and how he manages to keep the dog still in a costume is beyond me however; they're truly adorable.

The Mountain® t-shirt company have licensed Ron Schmidt's wonderful images on their earth-friendly t-shirts. We have 15 designs from the Loose Leashes™ collection in our cat and dog t-shirts section we're sure you'll fall in love with. We've got bulldogs, Labradors, Jack Russells and other breeds too!

When I was younger I remember having a small cream leather covered journal with a little gold lock and key. I was so good about writing down all the events of my pre-adolescent days. Years later when I found it; it brought back a lot of memories ( and even gave me a few chuckles) recalling my many crushes and child-like handwriting.

Opening an old journal and smelling the aged pages, or seeing the tear stained writing when you've just broken up with a boy or lost a good friend; brings back a wave of memories. The little smudges of chinese that dripped on the page while you were writing in bed at midnight, or a pressed flower from your best friend just can't be found on an internet blog or online journal.

Our beautiful journals by Tree Free Greetings® have beautiful covers that appeal to a person's likes and personality. They're perfect for taking along on holiday, or writing in bed at night and as they're 99% earth-friendly they're pretty special too.

Face T-shirts by The Mountain

There's no question The Mountain has brought out some cracking new t-shirt designs for 2011. However; the real cream of the crop is their "Face" t-shirts. Available in a range of dog breeds, big cats, zoo animals. This range started selling as soon as they hit the website. Just take a look at these beautiful designs and you can see why. The Mountain have also said they'll be bringing out further dog breeds in the future. So never fear, if you don't see your favourite they're in the pipelines!

Although the dispatch at the moment for these tees is 7-14 working days a lot of them are now in stock with our UK supplier so dispatch is even faster. We'll be working to get all the popular designs in stock so you won't have to wait very long to wear your very own Face T-shirt!!

Fund Raising

The 1st of April, we're rolling out a monthly fundraising scheme. We're fundraising for WWF (World Wildlife Federation). Each month we'll be highlighting a different endangered animal as well as a t-shirt. For every t-shirt sold featuring that particular animal, we'll be donating 10% of the profits to WWF. Customers will be able to view our goal thermometer showing how much we've raised.

As WWF's logo is a panda bear we will be starting our campaign with Panda Bear t-shirts. Any of our panda bear t-shirts sold during the month of April will be part of the campaign. So tell your friends and help us raise money for WWF!

Why I love The Mountain

First of all I know it's been a while since I last blogged. I am probably the world's worst blogger. But I decided this morning to take a few minutes to blog about why I'm passionate about The Mountain.

When we first started selling The Mountain t-shirts there were very few online shops selling them here in the UK. Infact I can only recall two others that were prominant in the search engines.

Initially I was drawn to the designs and quality of the tees and that's why we began selling them. It wasn't until after I realised just how amazing this company is that I became passionate about them.

It's not just about the designs or quality of the shirts it's what goes on behind the scenes. The Mountain is a company that cares about it's community and the environment.

Located in Keene, New Hampshire the company first takes care of it's employees. An on-site Child Care Center is available for all their employees with pre-school aged children. They also make sure their employees are well-fed by serving healthy organic meals twice a day to the entire company free of charge!

The Mountain also support local charities as well as worldwide green causes. While they have been working for years at running a low carbon footprint business it was recently they began treating the excess water they use in making their shirts. The dying process they use has always been earth-friendly water based dyes so the excess water was never a threat to the environment. However; now they remove the colour from the water so it's just clear going out as it was coming in.

You can't help but applaud a company that clearly isn't just about turning a profit but taking care and supporting the community, and environment. It's one of the main reasons we love selling their t-shirts!
