A few of my friends have suggested that I should expand my collection to include a line of jewelry for dogs, for a number of reasons –
A- Because I’m a huge animal person, I have two Chihuahuas, Julio and Carlos and Phoebe the cat
B- Because lots of other people are super into their dogs too
C- Crazy dog people spend big bucks on Fido
D- Dog stores have popped up everywhere you look packed with tons of fun designer gear for your pooch
I don’t know, that just isn’t my thing. I don’t dress up my dogs (maybe because they’re both male), with the exception of possibly a sweater when it’s really cold and that’s only if I can get it on without being bitten! I have a feeling that if they we’re female I would have long since fallen prey to the siren song of pink puppy tutus, but luckily for them that isn’t the case.
Tons of people dress their dogs up every day, just take a look around on Instagram! The hats! The dresses! The booties! And…the jewelry!
When I worked at Fred Leighton (www.fredleighton.com) there were actually a few clients who purchased jewelry for their dogs. Nothing says I have money to burn, quite like buying a diamond tennis bracelet as a collar for your teacup pup, on your afternoon stroll on Madison Avenue!
Well, I was inspired by all of this puppy jewelry chit chat and snapped a few pic of my Dog Carlos wearing some jewels from my personal collection.
