Special Edition Die Cut: Last Call

Special Edition Sheltie Nation Die-Cut Decal

Only for a limited time!

If you missed the announcement last week, we are offering a re-print of the special edition decal. The last day to order them will be 8/5. You can click the button below.

This style of decal is the graphic cut out in vinyl with no background, like those you frequently see on car windows. These decals are printed and “weeded” one at a time, so they are much more labor intensive than the peel-and-place stickers. As a result, they cost much more to produce, but the extra price is worth the sharp look.

The cost of these decals will be the same as the last offering, $12.00 USD. (Regular postage to your location will apply.) I will leave the ordering open for two weeks until about 8/5/14 then close it so I can place the order with the printer. You should have your special edition decal in about 3 weeks.

Just click the link below to be taken to the paypal portal. If you want to keep up to date with the conversation about these decals, just visit our forums.




Support Sheltie Nation and Win! Bags on Board

Did you know that the bacteria found in pet waste poses health risks to you and your community? Yep, that cute Sheltie that loves to cuddle and fetch also has some nasty stuff in his intestines… stuff that can not only contaminate water supplies, but also result in a fine if you don’t pick it up.  Being responsible isn’t always fashionable, but Bags on Board makes that easier!

While the original Bags on Board gets the job done, some folks wanted something jazzier. This new fun bone designs come in pink or turquoise marble is just the ticket! This design is easy to use because one end unscrews for refill replacement and has a large opening for grabbing hold of the bag.  It also hooks easily onto the leash so there is no need to remember a bag on your way out the door. Features include:

  • Compact dispenser holds 15 large doggie cleanup bags
  • Attaches to any leash
  • Environmentally-friendly
  • Includes 30 bags

We have partnered with Bags on Board to offer a raffle off two of this new design!  If you sign up to help support Sheltie Nation by being a Premium Member at our forums, you can enter to win! Click here:  Learn more and enter today by visiting the Sheltie Nation Bags on Board thread!

Win a book! A Dog’s Way Home

Daddy says, “Most folks got a north star in their life—something that gives their life extra meaning. Mine is music.”

Without even thinking, I say, “Mine is Tam.”

Abby knows that Tam, her Shetland Sheepdog, is her north star, and she’s pretty certain she’s his, too. But when an accident separates Abby and Tam, it feels as though all the stars have fallen out of the sky and nothing will ever be right again. As the days between them turn to weeks, then months, dangers and changes fill up Abby’s and Tam’s lives. Will they ever find their way home to each other?

Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, A Dog’s Way Home is an unforgettable tale of the many miles, months, and mountains that divide two loyal friends—but that can’t possibly keep them apart.

The books author Bobbie Pyron, has generously donated 2 signed copies to be raffled off here on Sheltie Nation!

Bobbie calls A Dog’s Way Home “my own personal love letter to all the great, classic dog books I’ve read and loved—and to all the dogs I’ve loved too.” As a part-time librarian, Bobbie enjoys sharing dog stories and books of all kinds with readers. Bobbie is also the author of The Ring, a teen novel about the world of competitive boxing.

When she’s not writing, working as a librarian, or volunteering with animal rescue organizations, Bobbie and her dogs Boo, Teddy, and Sherlock can often be found walking in the woods of Park City, Utah, with her husband, Todd.

To enter to win! Just email sheltienationraffle@gmail.com and put “way home” as the topic. (Contest is only open to those with a USA mailing address & ends Saturday, March 12th, 2011 at noon EST.)

Congrats to Sue C. & Jan H. for winning a copy of the book!
