In an ideal world, every waking moment could be spent with our pets, but sometimes that’s just not possible (don’t worry, we’re working on it). If there’s no way Fido can accompany your friend, a comforting blanket with their canine’s cute grin all over it could be the next best thing. Printy Pets also can print his face on mugs, phone cases, canvases, shirts, bags and more.
