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.

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.

My sister loved the gift

Service and delivery comments:

One of the glasses was broken when unpacked. I contacted Uncommon Goods after my sister informed me about the broken glass. They handled the replacement of the product with only a few questions. I have used them for gifts in the past and will continue to use them in the future. Excellent customer service.

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

    I was so amused by these, I gave a set to my sister and my sister-in-law for their birthdays, and they both like them a lot. They're made of heavy glass, seem durable, and the design is great. Too bad about the recommendation for hand-washing, but the fun images makes up for the inconvenience. When they arrived, one of the glasses was broken : ( but Uncommon Goods handled the mishap so well, I really appreciate how they went out of their way to take care of it. They were so nice, it makes me want to be a loyal customer. Besides, I like the selection of merchandise. I will remember Uncommon Goods when I am looking for gifts.

              Love these glasses because they basically tell the story of my dog, I also want Chapter 2 and the bad dog coasters :-D. My boyfriend doesn't understand the 'demonstrate confidence' one with the tinkling on the fire hydrant and that one makes the least sense to me as well but whatever I still like them all! However, I don't think the desription not the packing slip told me if they are doshwasher safe so I hand wash them but it would be nice to know.

              As a multi-dog family we can appreciate the sentiments on both sets of glasses! You can learn a lot from your dog.... The glasses are very unique and we like them a lot. The only con is that they are not dishwasher safe, or the design will fade very quickly. A pity, as we use both sets regularly.
