It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are. - Anonymous


  • Sign Size: 9x18 inches
  • Made from solid knotty pine
  • Beveled edges
  • Routed slot in back for hanging
  • Lightly distressed to create a warm, aged look. 

When making our signs we do not use highly processed wood; because of this, you can expect knots and minor imperfections that make each piece unique.

    Dog Lovers

    This is a beautiful wall plaque for any dog lover and many colors for options to go with any house. I got this for a birthday gift myself and then sent one to my daughter after the lose of her baby. Beautiful workmanship and great service from the sales staff. Also ready to order more from here :)

    Great product and great customer service

    this is a GORGEOUS plaque. We ordered the bark edge and my husband and I love it! The first one that arrived came damaged... the bark had a big chip off on one corner. I simply had to send Sawdust City a picture of it and they send me out a new one right away!! Very easy to work with. Already have my eye on other products from their website. Highly recommend!

    It comes to me every time

    Love the saying, and the color I chose. I ordered two signs and I am very pleased with the condition, color, and print on them. I am now looking at the furniture this company offers.

    Very pleased

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jan 2014

    I ordered this as a gift for Christmas. Unfortunately it did not arrive at all, even though Fedex said that it was delivered to my door. I emailed the company and the lady, without hesitation, apologized and sent a new one at no cost! It delivered quicker than estimated (like it said it did before), and I love it! The color and quality are great, and everyone compliments the sign. I definitely will use this site again because it seemed more like a delivery service problem.

    Best Description of Love Between Dogs and Humans

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Dec 2013

    This is a lovely sign, and the sentiment actually brought my husband to tears when he read it. We have had many dogs in our home, and loved each one deeply. My husband was so pleased when he received this as a birthday present, and proud hung it right away. It reminds us to love as unconditionally as our dogs do. My only complaint with our sign is that we wish there was a bit more contrast between the wood and the letters, but that is our fault, I suppose, for picking that wood and letter color combination.

    It came to me that every time

    All three signs I ordered came in great time and were in great shape. We all cried while reading the signs-we are great dog lovers from Corgi's to Great Danes to mutts.
