A Dog's Tale: In Two Parts

Never before in all of literature...er, glassware have we encountered such a dynamic and endearing character as the one in A Dog's Tale.

Chapter one introduces us to a protagonist, whose bark is worse than his bite and who propels the story forward with his aggressive, even daring, behavior. Through charming illustrations and witty "how to" labels, this chapter focuses on four main themes: taking chances, being assertive, increasing confidence and challenging the status quo.

Click here to see details of the four alpha dog traits:

How to assess risk
How to demonstrate confidence
How to bluff
How to defy authority

Can our hero keep up the alpha dog facade or will his aggressive ways come back to bite him in the end? To see what happens next, check out A Dog's Tale: Chapter Two.

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.

Very nice glasses and the design was adorable.

I was only given 3 of the 4 styles of glasses and 1 repeat. However when I called them they sent me a replacement 4th glass free of charge.

    Comments about A Dog's Tale Glasses - Chapter 1:

    I bought these for my dog-loving boyfriend as a Christmas present, and he looooves them (sometimes I think he loves them more than me!). We use them almost every day for both hot and cold drinks, and his beer-brewing friends are particularly fond of using "the dogs" for a nice cold one. The decor is happy and whimsical, and every dog-lover will recognize the mischief that takes place on the side of these glasses. They will warm your heart!

              I purchased these glasses as a Christmas gift. When I received the glasses, one glass was chipped on top. The package was packed so securely, that I think the glass was chipped before it was sent out. [...] A new glass is being sent out to me. [...]
