A Special Valentine’s Gift


Ah, the birds and the bees are in the air again! (Well, technically it’s too cold in Boston for either of them at the moment, but you know what we mean… it’s a figure of speech, geez…)

Today we’re going to bring you our official review of the Kiss Me You Fool Valentine’s Day Card that Gilligan and his Papa got for his Mama for this special day of love.


SONY DSCThis item was purchased from What's Up Dox, a weenderful online Dachshund shoppe that sells high quality doxie gear. 

We'll be continuing to bring you candid reviews throughout 2015 about the products we have received from them. What's Up Dox has provided us with a couple of extra items for free, in addition to some promotions for our site, in exchange for our honest reviews. 

This card is just one of the many that are available for a wide range of occasions in What’s Up Dox’s Note Cards Section.

This being a fairly simple product, our review will likewise be simple, and take you through just a couple of our thoughts.

The Appeal

In looking through the catalog of cards, this one was a must-have because of how much the Dachshund in the photo looks like our cuddly little buddy… I mean, it’s a male chocolate and tan dapple mini Dachshund. That’s a lot of specific things in common with our hero! 😉

Being the creative types around here, Gilligan and his Papa were also really big on (well, Gilligan was still small as usual, but er… right, figure of speech again…) the fact that there’s one short phrase inside the card, with plenty of room for personalization.

Suffice it to say that when your Valentine’s Day card features a Dachshund on the front, there are endless possibilities for things to write that will tickle your Valentine’s funny bone. Gilly and Papa really like the tone that this short phrase sets and how well it goes with the adorable photo.


The Quality

The thin plastic jacket is a great touch that helped keep the card fresh and crisp for its “big day.”


AND the back of the envelope features this really cute logo with a HOT DOG on it!


There really isn’t much more to say except that in terms of quality, this card is everything you want it to be.


Our Overall Rating:    ❤ ❤ ❤

Because today’s a special day, we’re taking a break from our usual rating system and just giving this card THREE BIG HEARTS!!!

Happy Valnetine’s Day! ❤

  1. Oh boy another Doxie shop for the Lady to check out! Love Dolly Pees: Sorry to hear you are in Boston, we got over 90 inches of snow last year so we understand!
