Ruff Love StoryPet

"Definitely the quiet type, but you don't need to say much when you have the heart of a dog."

The quintessential modern StoryPet. A whimsically crafted barnboard creation, painted with bold acrylic colors to commemorate, honor, or focus the general awareness of your local community in the direction of your splendid, incomparable furry companion.

◊ handcrafted from locally sourced recycled barnwood
◊ hand stamped stories drawn from our in-house collection
◊ tastefully emboldened with premium quality acrylic paints
◊ created with intention, by artists as quirky and different as the art itself

Consider a StoryPet for your home if you are struggling to keep the love you have for your pet contained exclusively within yourself.


We are a family-run art and gift company located in the upper rightmost corner of Iowa in a town called Decorah, in an area known as the driftless region, in a crater left by a 470 million-year-old meteorite.

You would think that living in a valley surrounded by alien shale would have an effect on people, and you might be right, but to our knowledge there have been no studies to determine the truth of the matter. As far as we can tell, people around here seem normal enough, but then again, once you go beneath the surface of just about anything, things can get weird fast.

Doing our best to bottle a little of our own weirdness, we spend our days making art and thinking about things like whether it is worth the extra effort to toast the bread before you make a sandwich, or the true meaning of flowers, or what the world would be like if everyone tried a bit harder to be nice to each other.

In a fortunate twist of fate, we are lucky enough to get to make pleasant things for you to share with the people in your life, to tell them how much they mean to you, and that is something we are really quite happy about. So thank you, from all of us here at StoryPeople, for helping us to spread a bit of gentleness throughout this wild world, one friendly story at a time.
