Review: Mimi Green

Do you love your family? I know I do!
Family is much more than blood, its people we are around all the time or the furry creatures in our lives!

We have two of those furry creatures and we call them Leia & Chewy.


Here we have our stinky not so little furbabies. =D
Leia (Princess Leia) is a Red/Blue Nose American Pit Bull Terrier and Chewy (Chewbacca) is a Red Nose American Pit Bull Terrier.
Do you notice the star wars theme going on here?? hehe

First, I am going to express my opinion on ‘Pit Bulls’.
If you raise a child to steal and hurt others the chances are that child will grow and continue to steal and hurt others. If you raise a child to be respectful and kind, the chances are that child will grow to be respectful and kind.

The same works with every dog. ‘Pit Bulls’ are NOT bad dogs!
If you raise your dog to be vicious, he or she will be vicious. Leia and Chewy are not vicious dogs. Protective? Of course! But they are very lovable stinky dogs!

You think you know them because of all the horrible stories you read but you don’t. So don’t judge until you have met them! Leia may lick you to death?!?!? But that’s really about it unless you are an intruder then I can’t speak for you! =P

Anyways… I love these dogs and they aren’t technically mine. They belong to my brother and his wife but they are family.
I would be very sad if they were to run away or become lost!

This is where Mimi Green comes in!
What is Mimi Green you ask? Mimi green is this great company that creates customized dog collars among other items!


This is how our collars arrived (in a box first, of course =P).
They were neatly rolled up in this mesh bag and tied nicely with a small label attached. =)

I love when companies send their items packed so nicely. It really shows they care about how they represent them selves.MimiGreen_002-1

Here are our Mimi Green collars!  Can I tell you how much I love them? For Leia who choose the Laminated Pattern Collar in Jasmine and for Chewy we choose the Lime Reflective collar.

I have our address and phone number blurred out for privacy reason. Sorry, but I don’t want any crazy folks stalking me =D
What I love about these collars are there is no hassle with dog tags. Everything is right there on the collar and if your dog gets out all the information to find their owner is right there.

In our local groups I am always seeing people post about dogs found and lost dogs. Having this collar can prevent the hassle of trying to find their rightful owner!


This is Leia! Also known has Leia Love Buckets, Puppy Puppers and Princess Leia! =D
She is a crazy puppy! Give her a bath and watch her run around like a nut job. Never fails! ANY TIME she gets wet its like a sugar high for her! She runs around the house, chases her tail and just goes crazy! Haha, It’s so fun to watch!

We chose this collar for her because it compliments her color. She is the dog that licks you to death!
Because she is still a puppy we are always afraid she will run when we have the door open. Thankfully, we are seeing she’s not going to run but you can never be too safe. If Leia were to ever get out her name and owners information is right there on the collar.


And here we have Chewy! Chewy is roughly 5 years old. He is just chewy…. I mean he likes to sleep. He loves to play with Leia but has moments he just wants to hide from her because all she wants to do is play… Like now, He in my bedroom sleeping hiding from Leia! =) He is not a licker! You get a kiss from him, you know he really really loves you!!

We decided to go with the Lime Green Reflective collar for him. He looks could with bright colors as his old collar was orange. Chewy isn’t planning on going anywhere. He actually found my brother roughly about 4 and half years ago in the dead of winter. Chewy is a very lovable dog and looks so handsome in his new Mimi Green Collar! =)

Mimi Green isn’t just about dog collars! They have leashes that match the collars, the offer dog tags and other dog accessories. I also know they have some seriously adorable camera straps!!

Mimi Green is am amazing company that have great products for our furry babies. That also have great customer service! It;s hard to find great customer service these days, which is sad.

Our dogs look amazing in their Mimi Green collars and I know if they were ever to get out or lost that it wouldn’t be long before they were home again thanks to Mimi Green! No more fiddling with dog tags that can easily fall off! All information is right there on their collars and no more jingles! =)

Mimi Green has a 5 star rating on their Esty shop and I have gone through some of the reviews of what others wrote and the only thing I see people commenting on that they don’t like is the wait. This is just a remind to folks to read the information given by shops. These items are customized and take time and 2-3 week turn around is not bad at all. I think they deserve the full 5 stars.

I love these collars and i know the dogs do to. They fit perfectly for our pups and they look amazing in them!

    What sweet faces!! You are so right when you say dogs (any animal actually) has to be taught to be mean. I have know some seriously loveable pits and Rotties!! I no longer have dogs-I have a brat cat! They outlawed dogs in the apt where I live —these collars really would have made me feel a lot more secure!

    We have two pups as well. They need new collars – and I am in love with the ones you have. Dogs do have to be taught to be mean, and one more thing is important – knowing the personality of the dogs you bring into your family. It’s not hard to research that information, and it helps to know how to integrate them into the family circle.

    These are really nice and at the same time, they’re something that every pet owner should have.

    AHHH!!! I love everything in this post! Those furbabies are precious and I love the collars! We have a brindle pittie and her name is Jessie. We got her from a family who rescued her and we’ve had her since she was roughly 2 months old. She’s now a little over 4 years old! :) I am totally checking out Green Mimi to find her something special!!!

    Nice collars and beautiful dogs! We had a good ole girl for 12 or 13 years, she was an american pit bull mixed with something. But she was the best!

    Love these! I also completely, 100% agree with you on the pitbull point! We have a beautiful, black pitbull and he’s the sweetest baby I could have asked for.
    Of course, if you try to attack *me* then there may be a problem but he only ever sits himself, planted firmly between me and any male that comes by. No teeth, no nastiness aaaaand he lets my toddler yank on him nonstop.
    Great review!

    What an awesome dog collar, sadly I don’t have a dog anymore. I would love to get him one of these. He was a 13 yrs old black lab and was too sick so we have to let him rest.

    Ha, the dogs in the family do become extended family, don’t they? If I see something doggie cool in the store, I’m apt every once in awhile to pick it up for my SILs dog. :)

    Aww, I’m just flabbergasted with duo cuties. Although, I’m not-so-keen into dogs because of my obsessiveness with cats but hey, they are simply so adorable. I’ve mate with 2 puppies, will definitely look for it if I can get something like this for them. Cute write up.

    Cute dogs but I’m deathly afraid of Pitbulls no matter how much their owners say that they’re the friendliest dogs ever. :) I also love those collars. We have a regular cheap color on our dog and then bought the tags. This would so eliminate the tags. I just may get one for our Gizmo a little itty bitty Shih-Tzu.
