How Dogvergnugen Came to Be!

EverythingDogBlog #159: (Nearly) Wordless Wednesday - De-Lightful Dog Logo
EverythingDogBlog recently interviewed Gila Kurtz of Dog is Good (DIG) fame and asked about that word – you know, Dogvergnugen, the word nobody can pronounce – or forget.
Gila told us, “Dogvergnugen is a word we made up to define how great people feel when with their dogs. It all started after one of my trips.
“The Joy You Feel in the Presence of Dog”
“Whenever I return home from a trip out of town or even just a trip to the store," Gila continued, “the greeting I get from our dogs is totally indescribable and one to which all dog owners can relate. During these joyful greetings, a physiological change takes place and we feel a level of love greater than just about anything else.  
“We decided to come up with a word to articulate what I was feeling...what most dog owners feel. And that is how we came up with Dogvergnugen!"
Dogvergnugen’s Mission: Deliver Dogvergnugen
“Our mission is to remind people about this feeling we experience when we return to our dogs and share their joy at the reunion,” says Gila. “It is DIG’s use of humor and poignant sentiments, along with sophisticated designs, that dog lovers immediately identify with.  Everything we create evokes strong emotion in dog lovers, reminding them of the powerful bond and love they share with the dogs in their lives.”
