Wiener Winter Wonderland

The holidays are here and everyone is out there shopping their brains out. It’s my favorite time to avoid the malls. People get crazy, they get aggressive and they’ll run you over if you’re not careful. I would much rather do my shopping either at the small local places with unique items or online away… Continue reading Wiener Winter Wonderland

All Coned Out – Almost

Like the energizer bunny, the crazy ideas just keep on coming. For whatever reason, I find sticking to a word and trying to find as many visual puns for that word is the way that my mind works. So I’m still stuck on “cone” as in the thing the vet puts around your pet’s head… Continue reading All Coned Out – Almost

They all have short hair and the frigid temperatures here in California are just too… Continue reading Clothes Your Dog

What’s New?

What’s new? This site, that’s what. Cold Nose Design is finally here. So, what that might be? I’m a dog lover, pun lover, and designer. Put them together and you have punny dog designs. There are some nice artsy ones too, but I tend to go for the warped, the ones that make you groan.… Continue reading What’s New?
