Ultimate Dog Lover T-Shirts and Giveaway #MountainArtWear #sponsored

The Mountain t shirt for dog lovers
In every facet, in every way, I am a dog mom and wear it with pride.


I am a dog mom to the core and my heart beats dog.® I love that quote so much that I trademarked it, and recently I discovered a company that allows me to wear my heart that beats dog on my sleeve, quite literally, see? If you are a dog lover and love t-shirts that say so, keep reading…

The folks at The Mountain® produce American-made apparel that embodies the spirit of animal lovers (and others). I am a Cocker Spaniel addict, to be blunt. I love to wear clothing that basically screams out “talk to me, I’m a dog mom.” In fact, when I wear my Dean Russo shirt from The Mountain and walk my dog at the same time, it takes me a good half hour to an hour to take a walk around the block.

Here’s the scoop:

There are t-shirts that are average in quality, cute, and can satisfy almost any pet lovers’ need on the market. Then there are t-shirts from The Mountain. I wouldn’t own three of them if I didn’t love them so much.

The MountainT-shirts from The Mountain:

  • Get this amazing quality after just one wash. You will not know where the print ends and the shirt begins.
  • The unique printing process actually pulls the dye color out of the shirt and leaves the ink color behind, essentially dyeing the cotton with the ink.
  • The Mountain Classic T-shirt features a relaxed fit, with reinforced double-stitching on all seams.
  • Are pre-shrunk, oh so comfy, and ready to wear.
  • Designed to last for years and retain their quality

But wait….there’s more. The fundraising arm of Fidose of Reality is Wigglebutt Warriors®, and we give back in a variety of ways to help homeless dogs. The folks at The Mountain share that mantra.

Into the environment and preserving it? The Mountain follows a green philosophy so that they produce products in a way that protects the environment, gives value to customers and supports employees and the artists. Cool beans, right?

Dean Russo is a fantastic artist who designed a line of art for The Mountain. Each t-shirt sold in the Dean Russo line benefits Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah.

Dean Russo Rescue Collection

BFAS runs the nation’s largest no-kill animal sanctuary in addition to partnering with rescues and shelters across the United States. Nationwide, the “kill” rate of animals being euthanized in shelters was 17 million. Since Best Friends opened in 1984, that number has been dramatically reduced to 4 million. Read that again: From 17 million to 4 million. THAT’S HUGE. Lives are being saved.

Dean Russo has an entire line of pet-related t-shirts up for adoption sale, and Fidose of Reality has a discount of 25 percent off any Dean Russo shirt from The Mountain.

  6. Tiffany's Diamond Dogs says

    Oh my gosh! I did not realize that one of my most favorite sleep shirts was from TheMountain! I got the Three Wolf Moon classic shirt years ago in Sedona, and used it as a sleep shirt forever! I love, love, love the wolf shirts from the Dean Russo collection. I’m in love with many of the wolf shirts-The Guardian, Love Song, Protector, Snow Plow, Night Wolves, Moon Wolves, Falling Stars, Eclipse Wolves, Dreamcatcher. The Native American designs are awesome too-so many beautiful ones. Wish they had an ACD design too though! Definitely bookmarking that website.

  7. Trish B says

    The shirts are all so great. It is difficult to choose just one. I love them all but if I had to choose just one it would be Dogs have a way as I truly believe that. Thank you!

  8. Lillian says

    I loved looking through the Dean Russo collection. I wasn’t sure that I would be able to pick a favorite because they are all so vibrant and beautiful. When I saw the “Choose Adoption” T-Shirt, it made me emotional thinking about the first time we saw our Dozer looking up at us from behind the cage in a high kill shelter. There was no doubt that he was coming home with us immediately. I love that the sales of these shirts also gives back to animals who need it.
    Of course, I couldn’t wait to see if I won 🙂 I had to place an order for myself and my nine year old (she says “future veterinarian”) animal loving niece. We are both November babies so I got a head start on several shirts for her birthday and also a couple so far for Christmas. I have been looking for high quality shirts for the animal lovers in my family, and I think we just found our favorite brand and site!
    Thank you for sharing! You always have the best information!!
