Frankie Inspires Wheelie Magnets from Silly Dog Magnets
Brianna, along with Chris P. Critter as her main inspiration, and right paw partner, started their own fun business called, Silly Dog Magnets. Mom and I first heard about them on Who's Your Dachshund (dare I say our favorite doxie blog?) where her doxie magnets were featured.
After mom saw them she got so excited I couldn't contain her! She was madly typing on the keyboard.. .and before I knew it she was hootin' and hollerin! I perked my ears to say, "Hey Mom, what's going on?"
"Oh Frankie", she said. "You'll never believe this!"
I wanted to say, "Try me," but patiently awaited her answer.
"Brianna from Silly Dog Magnets liked my idea to make magnets with doggie wheelchairs on them!"
So, that is the exciting news, as you see in the photo above!! These magnets are inspired after me! Isn't that way cool? We will have them available on our website in the near future, but if you just have to have a set right now, we say head on over to Brianna's Etsy sight and get yourself a set!
