Detroit Lions Blanket: Woven Tapestry Throw

Detroit Lions blanket
Known as the “Three Point Stance” design, this blanket is tough! This design is no longer made, but I have this ONE blanket left. This beautiful loom woven triple layer tapestry Detroit Lions Blanket with fringed edges is a tasteful way to show your team spirit. The Detroit Lions Blanket displays a beautiful array of color and a unique design of the Detroit logo. With its large 48″x60″ size it also makes for a prominent wall hanging. Go Detroit!

Puppy Mills

Do you know about puppy mills? If you don't -- and even if you do -- then you've got to watch this undercover video:

Puppy mills are large scale operations that force breeder dogs to produce litter after litter to support consumer demand for puppies. Puppies sold in pet stores or through Internet sites come from places filled with suffering, disease, malnutrition, and loneliness. Even the puppies themselves are often prone to a variety of diseases. Some die within days or weeks of purchase.

The Humane Society of the United States is working to stop puppy mills and they need your help.

Please watch this short video that exposes the cruelty of puppy mills. Then, you can take action by pledging to stop supporting the retailers that perpetuate cruel breeding practices. Click here:

Thanks for taking action!
