About Us

In the fall of 2012 my heart dog Ch. Akilah's Forgot His Blue Genes "AJ" went to the Rainbow Bridge all too early. My heart was and is broken. I was trying to find a way to celebrate and memorialize his life when I ran across Mats By Design's FB page. My thought was, what more fitting way to honor my AJ, than to create a design to have woven into a mat that we all use at dog shows! I asked them if they would be open to such a suggestion, and it was decided that I should go forward to give it a shot. So, I set about trying to find someone with artistic ability to take my idea and help bring it to life. I worked with a few different artists, graphic designers and people with experience with Photoshop, and after many tries, and changes and working side by side trying to make AJ. "AJ"...we finally came up with a great likeness of him that would work wonderfully on a mat. I chose the work that I felt most closely related to my AJ, but they were ALL wonderful! I had another friend clean up the outline I chose and make it "mould" ready, and off we went! Thank you all for your help!

Once the mats were received and were greeted with such excitement, I was asked over and over again to do "other" breeds as well. I took on this task, and am working toward carrying many Breeds in my line. I am thankful to have an artist that does wonderful work with her renditions of the breeds I have done to date, and I could not be happier with the outcomes.

We are excited to be working with Mats By Design, and to become their exclusive US/Canada distributor for all canine mats, including their Paw Print line. My breed designs will also be available through Mats By Design in Australia!

This is an exciting adventure, and we look forward to providing these high quality, beautiful mats to all of you!
