Obviously the fact that's it's customizable is just too cute and it's soooooo soft (I can't exaggerate how soft it is) so both of our dogs took to it immediately. It's been really nice for my always-cold Chi-mix to have something of his own to snuggle up with, and I'll definitely be taking it on trips so he has a little piece of home with him always."

    Shipping: Arrives within three weeks.

    Promising review: "Most unbelievable pillows I could have EVER imagined!! I sent them two photos, one for a small pillow and one for the large pillow. I still cannot believe how realistic the pictures came out on the pillows — they are clear as day and are they SOFT! It’s almost as if they’re a sueded cotton. They’re stuffed nice and tight so they stand up against my other pillows, and, as embarrassing as it is to admit, I actually sleep with my arms wrapped around the small pillow in place of my baby boy, Oliver, my miniature dachshund I lost last August and whose pictures I sent to these wonderful people. Oliver used to sleep under the covers with his head on my pillow. It’s not quite the same, and I still mourn his loss, but having my Oliver pillow to hold at night is very comforting. I highly recommend these folks! I know I’d purchase again!" —Jennifer
